Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Season 38 begins September 13 with the return of 18-day champion Matt Amodio; in the interim, Jeopardy! is running four weeks of reruns. The first two weeks were the 10 “Alex Around the World” episodes that ran in his memory in late December; the 2021 Tournament of Champions, hosted by Buzzy Cohen, will air from August 30 through September 10. Today’s episode was the first semifinal of the 2021 Tournament of Champions that originally aired on May 24, 2021.

PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Edward Hopper’s famous 1942 painting “Nighthawks” depicts three people sitting around a diner late at night, and is one of the most recognizable paintings in American art. Shortly after its completion, it was sold to the Art Institute of Chicago.
