    I am for Lily Chin winning.

    I think Lily Chin has the best chance of winning. She is super fast and quick witted.
    For me a very easy FJ tonight. Andrew Johnson is one of my favorite presidents. The only southern senator who did not bolt the Union. Helped pass the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. Backed Seward to buy Alaska, which might still be Russian if the Union had lost the Civil War. His wife taught him how to read and write. A terrific tailor too, by all accounts. Must have been a fantastic speaker.

    Lilly, Gary & Viraj, good luck in the finals.

  4. Dalton Higbee says:

    I feel bad that all three were wrong on Final despite all three doing so well.

      @Dalton, all I can say is they must not show students pictures of Lincoln with his axe anymore. It was quite common way back when. And this FJ made me want to get a set of Lincoln Logs for my grandkids. Maybe next Christmas. They’ll just throw them around now.

      @Richard, As I said, I’m hoping Lilly wins. But I do think we’re gonna see a buzzer battle and some furious DD hunting :0

        Or on a 2009 penny.
        Or the classic movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer.
        I expected to see an 1860 in the answers, but the clue to Lincoln seemed easy

    Go Navy. Beat Army.

    Two nights in a row with no correct final jeopardy responses. Also I m certain that Gary’s play style is similar to andrew pau. Imagine him going up against andrew in the tournament of champions later on. You.would love to.see that won’t you, VJ?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, I would like to see the 2 college champions go up against Jason Sterlacci, the Teachers Tournament champion, and see who gets schooled ;)

      (Just kidding)

  7. Fred Light says:

    Hard questions, for me, tonight. Time to hit the books.

    • EricS says:

      Never a bad idea. Idk your academic level, but please remember that this a higher level of academic elites. Learning is good, but stress is not.

  8. VJ says:

    Gary sure is quick with the buzzer. Still, I’m leaning toward Lilly to win it all. :)

    An interesting thing I came across about The New York World was that Joseph Pulitzer bought it in 1883 and he later offered Jefferson Davis’ widow, Varina, a writing job that she accepted. In New York City, she and Julia Grant became good friends.

      Do you think Gary is going to win on Friday? Because remember what happened last time with six females and 3 males we were so close to have an all girl game. I’m hoping Lilly will win cause she is super fast.
