GILLETTE JEOPARDY! ROUND: Unusual
College Team Names, Boxing Terms, Sports "Star"s, It's Shea, In
Irving, He Is Not Pleased.
For the record, "Shea in Irving" is a regular caller on DP's radio
show who is on Twitter @sheainirving.
Howard kicks off with 250 Unusual College Team Names, finding the
Daily Double under 750 It's Shea. He's going for all the marbles
on this: on April 16, 1964 Bill Shea christened the stadium with
water meant to symbolized these 2 ex-ballparks. "What are Ebbets
Field & the Polo Grounds?" FOR THE DOUBLER, 2500! He ends up in
the lead with 4250 to 2250 for Dana. Kevin on 1250 will play the
board first in...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Majerle & Me, Trailblazing Women, Hockey, Chew
On That, 2nd-Chance NFL Drafting, Man on a Mission
... with 500 Chew On That. Howard finds the first Daily Double
under 1000 2nd-Chance NFL Drafting. He goes for 2000 on this: the
Pack has good options if it rethinks taking Tony Mandarich no.2,
such as this FSU corner who went no.5. "Who is Deion Sanders?"
Good for 4750! Dana finds the other under 1000 Hockey. He goes for
2000 on this: it was during the 1952 Stanley Cup Finals that Red
Wing fans first threw these animals onto the ice. "What are
octopus?" RIGHT for 7750 and the lead. He ends up wtih 13,750 to
8750 for Kevin. Howard is behind on 4750, but not out of it.
FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Track Achievements": 23 days after
Roger Bannister's historic feat, Diane Leather broke this
corresponding barrier for women. Correct response: what is the
Proving this show is indeed a game of inches, Dana was counted
incorrect (he had written "5-minute mark" instead of "5-minute
mile"), but his bet was enough to win the day with 9999. Howard
leaves with $7000.
