No, R9, they’re not going anywhere. This was the first of a two-game final. They play again tomorrow and add the scores together to determine the champ. I also was rooting for Joshie, and she did pretty well, all things considered. But she will likely be bested by the other two.

No, I’m not sure. And, in fact, I’m wrong. Emily is in the finals. The other two are out. When I looked at the contestants zone website earlier in the week they had both Thursday and Friday contestants blanked out. I erroneously thought that meant it was a two-day championship. Wrong.

In 1938 Margaret Wilson traveled to the ashram of Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry, India, where she remained for the rest of her life. She became a member and devotee of the ashram and was given the new name 'Nistha', meaning "dedication" in Sanskrit. She and the scholar Joseph Campbell edited the English translation of the classical work on the Hindu mystic, Sri Ramakrishna, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna by Swami Nikhilananda, which was published in 1942, by Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Center, New York. Wilson died from uremia on February 12, 1944, at the age of 57, and was buried in Pondicherry, India, unmarried and without issue.

Add Steinbeck to the list of Jeopardy writers' frequently used faves.
|by Anonymous||reply 37||November 7, 2023 3:52 AM|
I was shocked and disappointed to learn that John Steinbeck had such high regard for "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." I realize the phrase "the grapes of wrath" comes from that song, but I assumed Steinbeck used it for the title of his masterpiece novel only because the phrase was so appropriate for that story. But "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" is a horrendous song that basically says. "We're at war, and we're going to kill other people and maybe be killed ourselves, but that's all great because God is on our side."
I just don't get why that sentiment would have such strong appeal for John Steinbeck.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||November 7, 2023 4:31 AM|
Julia Ward Howe was an abolitionist and "The Battle Hymn," written in late1862, was intended to rally support for Lincoln and the Union in the fight against slavery. In the 1930s, Steinbeck saw a parallel in the fight to help the destitute economic migrants like the Joads.
|by Anonymous||reply 39||November 7, 2023 5:48 AM|
Thanks, R39. I suppose that was Steinbeck's reason for admiring the song, but the lyrics are still the lyrics, and they're particularly horrifying out of context.
My guess for FJ was "Red River Valley." That was the first thing that came to my mind because I know that song is used prominently in the movie of THE GRAPES OF WRATH, including the main title sequence.
|by Anonymous||reply 40||November 7, 2023 2:58 PM|
I guessed “Amazing Grace.”
|by Anonymous||reply 41||November 7, 2023 3:57 PM|
The writers do love Steinbeck.
He comes up a lot in Jeopardy clues. Perhaps they use Steinbeck so much because people are still reading Steinbeck today. And Fitzgerald for that matter. But other writers of that era like Sinclair Lewis aren't read so much these day, and Lewis seldom comes up as a Jeopardy clue.
I had no idea on Final. I guessed it might be something by Gershwin but didn't have a specific song in mind.

Emily's response, Magellan, was really bizarre. Surely, someone as smart as she is didn't think Magellan was writing anything in 1779 (or whatever that 18th century year was)? I'm glad she won though, I really liked her spirit (and when she called out "Mittens" Romney yesterday).

Questions definitely seem easier in the past two episodes since the writers returned.
Maybe they were tasked with coming up with hundreds of clues in just a days time, before the next Champions Wildcard tapings began. And because they had to write so many in such a short amount of time, perhaps the clues were easier than usual.

I got Havana too. But I was also sure Dennis would stage a magnificent comeback and redeem himself with a big win after missing Oliver Wendell Holmes on yesterday's Daily Double.

YAWN. We start another Champions Wildcard Tournament today.
I want to get back to regular play. I want to get back to the thrill of possibly seeing the next Ken Jennings or Mattea Roach or James Holzhauer.

I was perfectly happy with the results from yesterday. I found Dennis a bit off-putting because he came across as a snobby know-it-all. I like Nick Cascone (who had a small part in Titanic, which he never mentioned), and I’m glad he’s going to the ToC.

Ken said at the start that this would be the last Champions Wildcard tournament they do. The fourth and final one. So, that suggests come mid-December, they'll have some other type of games. Whether its "regular play" remains to be seen.

Ken mocking a contestant’s response derisively, when “quarterback” was offered.

I swear I am SO over these Championship Wildcard games.
They can't end soon enough - although I admit I am looking forward to seeing Hung Henry (as R148 calls him) again.
Didn't Ken say on yesterday's show that the games with regular players start in April?
Or maybe I nodded off while watching and dreamed that bit of info as a nightmare.

Ken said nothing of the sort. That was EP Michael Davies who apparently said that during one of the Jeopardy podcasts discussing that weeks shows. At least that's what someone posting here on DL reported a month or so ago. I haven't heard the podcast to verify. While I love the history of Jeopardy podcasts, I am bored silly with the weekly review of the weeks games podcast.
What Ken said on Wednesday's show, as has already been referenced upthread, is that this will be the last set of Champions Wildcard games for season 37 and 38 winners.
Not sure if that means we'll move back to regular play in three weeks or move on to Champions Wildcard games for season 39 winners. We'll find out in three weeks.

Really, really glad that Tyler won. He’s hot. Loved the way he looked in that uniform. And I agree with R164 that I’d like to see him out of it as well.
I had a feeling that he was going to be the only one of the three to get FJ right. Watergate? First, she was off by 10 years plus, there was no disputed report.

Yes, Tyler had the ultra rigid military control thing down. Ken even commented on it during Final. So, it was nice to see him relax and smile upon winning.
Yes, the Warren Commission was super easy for Final, especially having seen a recent JFK assassination 60th anniversary special.

Sooooo….do producers not even give a fuck anymore about having an FJ that a ten year would maybe struggle with??
And to make matters worse, one dumb fucking contestant couldn’t even come with any response, and the game was there for the taking due to horrible wagering by another dumb fucking contestant.

I really liked the tall cute bearded guy on the end - was his name Matt? - to win! But every time he seemed to be forging ahead he made a few unfortunate blunders.

To put it mildly. I thought he was one of the worst players in recent memory.

Wanted to root for Matt but he kept getting so many clues wrong!
But then Andrew knew nothing about history. He thought Reagan was the subject of a 1975 assassination attempt?! He thought Castro was the subject of a 1933 assassination attempt!?!?!?!? Fidel Castro was 7 years old in 1933.

I vaguely remember cute tall Matt from his first appearance but if he won 2 games back then I guess he was up against some really weak competition.
Andrew is not destined to be a DL fave no matter how much he wins. Those assassination clues were all about the years, of course. Even I knew it would be Ford and FDR.
