Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category U.S. History) for Thursday, October 14, 2021 (Season 38, Game 24):
On Sept. 30, 1788 William Maclay & Robert Morris, both of Pennsylvania, were chosen as the first 2 these
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Ray Kimball, a retired Army officer from West Point, New York
|Aline Dolinh, an MFA candidate from Allston, Massachusetts
|Jonathan Fisher, an actor originally from Coral Gables, Florida (3-day total: $70,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Jonathan Fisher has proven to be a very worthy champion, picking up his 3rd win yesterday. Today’s game is crucial for him, as a victory today should cement his spot in the next Tournament of Champions, whenever that might come.
On a slightly more personal note: From October 16-23, there will be a 168-hour charity live-streaming relay on Twitch to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada; more information can be found at gamersvsms.ca. 1 in 385 Canadians live with MS. I’ll be doing my shift as part of the relay on Thursday, October 21 from 2:00 AM to 8:00 AM EDT on my own Twitch channel, twitch.tv/andythequizzer/.
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.
