Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: In this second of two quarterfinals today, Texas’ Jaskaran Singh, Brown’s Max Niles and USC’s Sarah Salisbury compete. This match’s winner will be in semifinal #4 on February 18, against Joey Kornman and the winner of quarterfinal #12.
One very small thing to me that I’ve noticed (and this could be entirely coincidental): I very much appreciate that in every single one of the twelve quarterfinals, each player has a different starting letter to their name. It’s something that I only really notice because I use single letters in my game charts to represent each player, and it just makes it slightly easier for me to compile stats for every episode. But if it was deliberate, it is greatly appreciated by me. Thank you!
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, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.
