Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Classic Albums) for Thursday, June 23, 2022 (Season 38, Game 204):
This classic album by a Southern rocker gets its title from a Civil War quote by a Union admiral
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Andrew Lewis, a lawyer from Oakland, California
|Whitney Wood, a history professor from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
|Jeff Weinstock, a marketing lecturer from Miami, Florida (1-day total: $11,202)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: We have a new champion—Jeff Weinstock ended Megan Wachspress’ improbable run in yesterday’s game. Will he defend his title, or will Andrew Lewis or Whitney Wood—another Canadian!—become champion?
It is nice to see so many Canadians on the show, again—I expect that this is also a consequence of the Anytime Test + Zoom auditions—it’s much easier for Canadians to audition these days.
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.

Correct response: What is Damn the Torpedoes?
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.)
Damn the Torpedoes was Floridian Tom Petty’s third studio album; its best-known songs from the album would be “Refugee” and “Don’t Do Me Like That”. The 1979 album reached #2 on the Billboard 200 (only kept from the top spot by Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall) and was certified 3× Platinum by the RIAA. The album gets its title from Admiral David Farragut’s famous quote from the August 1864 Battle of Mobile Bay, when Farragut ordered “”Damn the torpedoes! Four bells. Captain Drayton, go ahead! Jouett, full speed!”—a quote which became paraphrased as Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”

Our Canadian challenger got off to the best start, getting 7 correct and $5,000 before the first commercial break! However, both Jeff and Andrew battled back in the back half of Single Jeopardy, with Jeff picking up a True Daily Double on clue #17! It was a very tight game after 30 clues!
Double Jeopardy! Round categories: It’s Anarchy; Vowel, Consonant, Vowel, Consonant; Published Posthumously; That Used to Be a Trademark; Mountains; It Came from a Graphic Novel
Jeff found both Daily Doubles in Double Jeopardy! as well. The first one—on clue #2—didn’t go well. In between, it was still a very close game, with all three players within $3,400 late in the game. Then, Jeff got to play the last Daily Double. Behind by $2,000, Jeff chose to go aggressive with a shocking True Daily Double wager! This worked out perfectly for him, as he got the correct response, and ended up breaking today’s game wide open! Scores going into Final were Jeff holding a commanding lead at $20,000, Andrew in second at $11,000, and Whitney in third and functionally out of contention at $7,600.
Final today was a Triple Stumper, which meant that Jeff’s strong position going into Final worked perfectly for him! He’s now a 2-day champion, going for win #3 tomorrow!

Final Jeopardy! wagering suggestions:
(Scores: Jeff $20,000 Andrew $11,000 Whitney $7,600)
Jeff: Standard cover bet over Andrew is $2,001. While I generally don’t recommend doing so anymore, as the trailer often fails to bet enough to pass you, your maximum bet is $4,799, so as to keep Whitney locked out. (Actual bet: $2,001)
Whitney: Barring a major mistake from Jeff and Andrew, you don’t have a chance of winning today. I would limit my bet to $3,599 to play for second, just in case Andrew bets the minimum. (Actual bet: $5,000)
Andrew: If Jeff bets to cover and is incorrect, he falls to $17,999. Your minimum bet is thus $7,000. Anything over that should be fine. (Actual bet: $10,000)
