Happy Friday! By the time many of you read this, it will be the weekend. Have a great one! Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Symbols) for Friday, March 11, 2022 (Season 38, Game 130):

|Laura Dera, a hotel assistant manager from Studio City, California
|Maureen O’Neil, an executive assistant from Rye Beach, New Hampshire (4-day total: $58,200)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: After winning her 4th game yesterday Maureen O’Neil is now holding the #14 spot this site’s ToC Tracker. Including any Second Chance Tournament, that means that we have a 15-player field of tournament winners and 4+ game champions. She goes for win #5 today against Laura Dera and Matt Glassman.
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.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2022 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
San Francisco politician Harvey Milk, elected to the city’s Board of Supervisors in the late 1970s as one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States, urged artist Gilbert Baker to create a symbol of pride for the LGBT community in San Francisco in time for the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day parade on June 25, 1978. Baker designed the first rainbow pride flag. The best-known versions of the rainbow pride flag today had its colors chosen for ease of mass production, leading toward the six-striped flag (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet). Unfortunately, Milk was assassinated by a former Supervisor in November of that year, along with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone. Sean Penn won an Oscar for his portrayal of Milk in the 2008 biopic Milk.

Jeopardy! Round categories: Artists, Bank “C”, Munch, Bosh, Hopper, Says Ann(e)
Laura had an up-and-down first 15 clues, picking up four incorrect responses. However, she did find the Daily Double shortly after the break, doubling her score (yet leaving $400 on the table.) Her good guess seemed to buoy her confidence as well, leading to a very close game after Single Jeopardy!, with only $400 separating Matt in the lead from Maureen in third.
Double Jeopardy! Round categories: 17th Century Happenings, Ab-work, Brit Lit, Music of the 2000s, Here Be Lions, 6-Letter World Capitals
Laura found the first Daily Double early in this round, but wasn’t as successful, dropping $1,000. Meanwhile, Maureen began to struggle with incorrect responses, falling into the red early in the round; she was unable to recover and finished in the red. About the same time, Matt started a run of his own. All in all, though, all three players struggled with the material today, with 19 Triple Stumpers and 17 incorrect responses over both rounds. (Think you can do better? Online testing is available 24-7.) During this, Matt dropped $2,500 on the last Daily Double. Your scores going into Final had Laura at $7,400, Matt at $6,900, and Maureen not seeing Final Jeopardy at -$2,600.
