    Did anyone else notice that Shannon had $4200 at the end of the first half of the Jeopardy round, but early in the second half his score showed as $2400 changing to $2600 as he was selecting the next clue? It seems like they must have edited the order that the clues were selected.

    Congrats to Shannon. I wonder if that name is a girls name. Do most men have names like that? I wonder why men have girls nanes though? Also how much do you remember about the battle of new orleans

      @Lou, Shannon is a unisex name. Like a lot of names that are thought of just as girl names now, it started out as a boy’s name. It’s really not all that popular anymore. Last year, according to the Social Security Administration, 248 girls and 81 boys were named Shannon.

      All I needed to remember on the clue was 1815 (Waterloo). The song that Myron and I were referring to on the CotD post is called “The Battle of New Orleans” and it starts out “In 1814, we took a little trip.” The Battle of New Orleans was actually in Jan 1815, but I knew that too. Here’s a link to the song

    Tough break for Marianne on that Imprisoned Authors DD. I guess in the end it didn’t make a difference though.

    I’ve got 11 more clues from the match up now, including the Grammy category

    Shannon’s interview was about how he likes prime numbers, Alex asked at the end of FJ! if 8031, his wager in FJ!, is a prime number. It’s not as 3 divides it 2677 times.
