Laurie played spectacularly yesterday.
Let's see what her follow-up looks like.
orig. Medford, MA
JEOPARDY! ROUND: Art Terms, A Major
Leaguer in the Song, English Usage, -Ologies, Milan, Out of
Laurie starts with $200 -Ologies, finding the Daily Double under
$600 English Usage. She's betting everything on this: around 2008
this negative word that had been doing fine as a verb was popular
as a noun, open preceded by "epic". "What is fail?" FOR THE
DOUBLER, $6000! She ends up with $7800 to $2800 for Megan. Cary on
$2200 gets the board to start...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Prequels & Sequels, Emmy Time, Opera, Do Your
"Ob", Americana, Start Up Your Carlos.
... with $400 Emmy Time. Laurie finds the first Daily Double under
$1200 Prequels & Sequels. She skipped it, but now she has $2600
riding on this: in a follow-up to an earlier novel, "Closing Time"
by this author revisits Yossarian & Milo Minderbinder in NYC in
the 1990s. "Who is Heller?" RIGHT for $13,200! She also finds the
other under $1200 Start Up Your Carlos. She makes it $2800 to go
on this: in 2000 this legendary musician won 8 Grammys, including
Album of the Year. "Who is Carlos Santana?" Got it for $27,600!
She ends with $29,200. With Megan on $6800 to $7400 for Cary, the
game is the champ's to lose.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "European Geography": excluding
Russia, it has the longest mainland coastline of any European
country country, 15,626 miles. Correct response: what is Norway?
Cary was right, but it's pretty
much academic. Laurie wins another $25,000, giving her $51,700 for

It's the gateway to the (almost)
Priceless Summer, and we have Sarah Ellis, Salvatore Salamone,
Shelly Abrahams, and Marcus Stephenson bidding on a Dell PC. The
$1450 computer goes to Sarah, who gets to take it home in a Mini
Cooper if she wins One Away. The price is not $31,141. She goes
with $22,050... and gets one... two... three... four... FIVE!
Marcus will try and follow that up with a $1299 elliptical trainer
and a trip to New Orleans (6n @ Bourbon Orleans Hotel) if he knows
whether he's Coming ($9517) or Going ($7159). He goes... and we're
two for two!
If Salvatore parlays his $500 bonus on a $500 set of Fitbits into
a perfect half, we'll give him a new bathroom in Cliffhangers.
Razor for $20? YES! Curling iron for $30? No, it's $33, but $22 is
a lot of money to play with on a lotion/soap dispenser. Is it $40?
YES! He continues his winning ways in the Showcase.
(C-Note: can't remember the last time a person ended the top half
with the most money that DIDN'T involve a car)
Meanwhile, Ellen Draper is mad over a $2900 trip to Ojai (3n @ The
Oaks at Ojai). She'll play for a Hyundai Elantra in Stack the
Deck. The deck: 0, 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 9. She gets the full compliment
of three cards, giving us a board of $__,320. She goes with
$19,320... and the deck has been BEATEN!
Bridget Praytor gets an $880 hammock and a chance at a $3499
refrigerator/freezer and a $2148 set of Coach accessories. But are
those right, or should we Switch? She switches... bad idea jeans.
Shelly gets one last chomp at the bit with an Xbox One package.
The price: $679. The winner... Jeffrey Addison, who will play some
for real games with an arcade basketball if he wins Balance Game.
The bags: $91, $2000, $4000, and $5000. He goes for $6091.. .
Ellen wins $1000 on the Big Wheel and advances to...
SHOWCASE ROUND: First up, prizes that transform - a pair of
folding kayaks, a dining/game table with chairs, and a Mazda MX-5
Miata Sport. Top winner Salvatore bids $25,000. Ellen gets music
to her ears - wireless speakers with receiver and trips to
Australia (6n @ Holiday Inn Darling Harbour) & Bora Bora (6n @ Le
Meridien Bora Bora). She bids $27,500. Actual price: $33,284, a
difference of $5784. Actual price of Salvatore's Showcase...
$31,820, a difference of $6820, and by $1000 or so, Ellen rules
the day with $56,504. Not a bad day.
And then (Save for specials), there was one.

TWO DAY CHAMPION
website shopping experience coordinator
La Crescenta, CA
USAA JEOPARDY! ROUND: Shaq-ting the
Part, Wrestling, Almost Valuable Player, Jets, Sharks, Let's Get
Ready to Rumble!
Megan begins with 250 Sharks. At the media timeout, James and
Patrick are tied with 2250. Megan, yet to make a move.
Patrick finds the Daily Double
under 750 Jets. He fronts 1000 on this: he was 2004 Ivy League
MVP. He blanks on Ryan Fitzpatrick, leaving him with 2000. He
recovers to 3750 to 7250 for James the Silent Assassin. Megan,
still riding on a donut, will pick first in ...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Big Athletes, Odd Words & Phrases, Winning
Streaks, In the Arena, International Team Sports, NCAA
... with 500 Odd Words & Phrases. James finds the first Daily
Double under 2000 In the Arena. He makes it 3000 to go on this:
Dr. J & Bernie Parent were on hand in 2010 when the wrecking ball
turned out the lights on this 43-year-old venue. "What is the
Philadelphia Spectrum?" RIGHT for 12,750! Meanwhile, welcome to
the game, Megan. She has 4000 going into her Daily Double under
1500 Odd Words & Phrases. She just bets the level on this: doing
this is spiking the football so time won't run out on you. "What
is taking a knee?" No, it's clocking the ball, leaving her with
2500. Still anyone's game as she recovers to 3000 to James' 8750 &
FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "NFL Kickers": in 2015 this AFC
West kicker made 2 field goals on the road at a field that sounds
just like his last name. Correct response: who is Josh Lambo?
Everyone missed out on the San Diego Chargers rookie, and
Patrick's wager will determine who's coming back next week... It's
Patrick with 6001 for $5000. Megan leaves with $12,000.
