"Jeopardy!" 2/14

ALL MALES TONIGHT: Colby Burnett, David Menchaca & Joel Pool

Starting Board:
GREAT BRITON
TIE ONE
"TAS"-MANIA
AISLE OF MAN
CANARIES
SURROUNDED BY WATER

On the second clue overall & in Great Briton, Colby surprisingly grabs the DD. To turn his $200 into $1,200:

In 1997, a memorial fund in her name was established to continue her humanitarian work.

"Who is Princess Diana?"...right & he RUNS the category for a new $3,600 score. He adds $2K to it before they go to break; David's slightly ahead of Joel for second place, $1,200-$1K.

LT (all unattempted): $2,800

Scores After This J! R:
Joel: $3K
David: $3,800
Colby: $7,600

The College Online Test will take place on Mar. 6.

As We Double All the Fake Stakes:
PIN THE TALE ON THE WRITER
LET'S ROCK
"BABY" MOVIES
The Old Farmer's 2013 Almanac
U.S. POLITICS
PUNNY & NOT-PUNNY DEFINITIONS

David's VDD comes on the $1,600 U.S. Politics square & he's got $5,400 to Joel's $3,800 & Colby's eight grand. David tries to tie on this clue from Sarah:

1968 was the last time a third-party candidate captured a state- Nixon won 32 red states, Humphrey took 13 blues & this independent won a block of five Southern states.

"Who is Strom Thurmund?"...good guess, but NOT him; it was George Wallace. And as Colby throws a $1,200 dart at Pin the Tale on the Writer, here comes the other DD this rd.; he's currently on $9,600, twice as much as David & Joel's just $200 out of second. Colby says "I will NOT Roger Craig this" & bets $800.

The Adventures of the Speckled Band (1892)

"Who is (Mark) Twain?"...good call on the bet- the actual author turned out to be Arthur Conan Doyle.

DJ! LT (all unattempted): $10,400

Pre-FJ! Scoring:
Joel: $5,800
David: $11,600
Colby: $15,200

CORYAT SCORES:

Joel: $5,800
David: $14,200
Colby: $15,400

FJ! TOPIC: Museums.

Its collection includes a 16" high architects' model of its first permanent building, opened in 1939.

JOEL: "WHAT IS The BUILDING MUSEUM?" (ALL-IN) = OUT
DAVID: "What is the Guggenhiem?" (NADA)
COLBY: "WHAT IS MOMA?" ($1,200) = $16,400


This ToC is presented by Prudential & Johnny does the sponsorship plug at the end of each game.
