    We missed the show because it was usurped by news from Brussels.

    The July 3, 2003 and October 10, 2011 episodes also had an adjectives of Y&R category in round one with clues read by Y&R actors

    Another couple days of no J here in Kalispell, due to March Madness/Insanity preëmption. Only here I find Sanity. I missed Dr. Roger Bannister last Thursday due to same. I would class that as a generational question. It was big news when I was in high school, now no one hardly remembers him. Saw Bambi in 1947 on Disney’s second release, quite a memorable movie.

  4. Cece says:

    Preempted here. Very sorry and sad about Belgium, but the ABC Report just reports what they’ve been reporting all day long. (word repetition intentional).

    Don’t know what the writers were thinking, but the word bambino in Italian means a little boy, not just a newborn. And the real word for a newborn is neonato, if I want to be pedantic (which I do). :):)

      My first boyfriend was from Naples. The word for him was molto bello.

      • Cece says:

        Know what, VJ? My brain is fried tonight, so it’s not you but, I don’t get it :)

        Btw, Melissa seemed to have made a mistake in her wager and bet $1,000 short, instead of doubling Claudia’s $9,800? ( I just finished reading the recap.)

        Thanks for the 2/26 game link. :):)

        • Cece says:

          VJ, I’m lol at myself, I think I just got it! What a dork I am!!

          Jacob, you’re right these weren’t even close, but very amusing answers. :):)

    • jacob ska says:

      @Cece, whether it is bambino, bambina, neonato, neonata, the shortening of either word does not translate into Winnie the Pooh or Gretel. These two latter responses weren’t even in the ball park.

    some are kinda lucky to have been able to see jeopardy regular time today…

  6. VJ says:

    Out of curiosity, I just looked up that one bit of IMDB trivia about Man (from the Bambi movie) being No. 20 on the AFI”s list of 50 Greatest Movie Villains of All Time. Still No. 20! (right behind Captain Bligh) LINK

  7. JEOPARDY says:

    Little difficult fj today.. If you don’t know or read childrens books..

    Two or all should get this one..

  8. Carol says:

    Still giggling over Winnie the Pooh

    • jacob ska says:

      I have another issue. Where is the Italian etymology in Gretel? Isn’t that German?

      • EricS says:

        Seriously, Pinocchio is not looking so bad now,

      • VJ says:

        @ Jacob LOL! I read this question to my granddaughter and she didn’t know because she has never seen this and doesn’t know much Italian besides pasta. But we were laughing at the Winnie the Pooh answer — which part of that was short for newborn in Italian (winnino?? pooh-ino?)

        @ Eric — LOL!! Hilariously true

  9. William Weyser says:

    The last time that we had a Final Jeopardy! category like this was the day after Choyon Manjrekar defeated 5-time champion Andrew Haringer and Winnie The Pooh was the correct response.

  10. jacob ska says:

    Glad Claudia won. I like that she got a college degree at age 54. That’s gutsy. With all of the acting dialogue for each clue in the Y&R category not surprised an entire category was left on the board at end of first round. Alex should have left out his attempt for an Italian accent on “bambino.” It didn’t go over well imo. Stick to French Alex.

  11. aaaa says:

    37./56 here. THey didn’t touch the married names category in the first round. J! and/or WOF was preempted where it airs at 7pm on the East Coast on NBC/CBS/ABC because of Brussels tragedy extended coverage from the network nightly newscasts.

  12. rhonda says:

    No Jeopardy here tonight. VJ, you are lucky you were able to see it.

    • jacob ska says:

      Not here either Rhonda. I have to wait until 7:30 pm on the syndicated channel. I must add though that I truly feel sorry for the people of Brussels, Belgium. Such a tragedy.

      • rhonda says:

        Yes, my heart goes out to them, of course, it is so terribly sad and senseless. What a dreadful world we live in.

    • VJ says:

      sorry you missed it Rhonda. They put Alex’ explanation of the $1 bet on Jeopardy’s Twitter.

      There’s also this clue from the No More Games category that I never would have known if it wasn’t for Mark.

      “His last game with the Packers was Jan. 20, 2008; his last with the Vikings, Jan 2, 2011; then came his final retirement”

      Most of what I know about sports, I learned from Mark’s articles on Fikkle Fame!!
