    Tom’s best chance for second place would have been to wager $1201.

      Yup, that was the only thing that should have mattered to him going into FJ, but he just seemed to upset to care about the extra grand.

      • Cece says:

        The “Sorry, you added an extra s…”. Groundhogs/Groundhog’s Day is OK, but Midsummer’s Night…is not. Seriously?

        And that TA play again? What’s up with that? It was awesome how Sean still pulled a runaway despite the 2 DD’s fail.

        Honestly, I think Alex is pulling our legs with that TOC thing. Imo he’s just making believe that the show is live. Would they tape the TOC on the last week before it aired? I doubt it. (And if it turns out that I’m wrong, I’ll swallow my words.)

        • VJ says:

          well, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a title. There are actually two songs — Groundhog’s Day (Primus) and Groundhog Day (Eminem) — where I guess the addition or lack of of an S would matter, but I’m sure Diego Velasquez has a much better chance of showing up before either of those. :)

          Best answer today: Manuel in People with Bible Book Names. hee hee hee

        • Cece says:

          Yeah, you’re right, but the clue a week ago was about the critter’s day and I thought that was called Groundhog Day, I guess not. :)

          Now that you mention it (not Groundhog related) I recall a few clues with Eminem, but I can’t recall any with Primus.

        • VJ says:

          it is called Groundhog Day. Here’s a clue from 1995: “You could also call it Woodchuck Day” hmmmm… I wonder if they would accept that

          It would have been nice if his second answer had been right.

    Thriller came out in late 1982 and was still on the charts and having hit singles through early 1984 when the title song became the then-record seventh top 10 hit from the album (Born in the USA was the second album to have seven top 10 hits off of it two years later when My Hometown hit the top 10 in early 1986). Terminator was a movie, not an album, though the original came out in 1984. 41/60 here.

    The final jeopardy question is incorrect or misleading at least. Bruce Springsteen is NOT Pop Music it is rock and roll. My answer was Michael Jacksons “Thriller”.

    • Eric S says:

      Sorry man, there wasn’t one song on that album that rocked. Even more so, “Dancing in the Dark ” was enough to qualify it as pop.

    Beth’s score was $4,800, not $8,400

    I’m from the Dallas area, so I’m glad that Beth even got to FINAL! This is because of the players from the Dallas area last time have never gotten into Final. Heck, she even got second place (even though with 300 bucks)!
