    Wow! I had no idea the Maryland state song was like that. Particularly, the 9th stanza. Wasn’t John Wilkes Booth the 9th child?
    What they call the Confederate Flag down south is actually the Battle Flag and was never official. I think the only official flag they had was the “Stars and Bars”, the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.

    I don’t remember if New Hampshire had a state song when I went to school in the 1940s. I looked it up, and no wonder. we didn’t have one until 1949. Plus 8 honorary ones after that. You would think they would have better things to do. Who needs 9 state songs(?)

    And what about the Hawai’ian flag with the British Jack, known as the King Kamehameha I Flag. Although the US fought 2 wars with Britain, all the Hawai’ians I know want to keep it, as they have since 1845.

    @Rhonda, did you catch that clue under “Latin Class” for abbreviation of “et cetera?” The clue read: 2 Latin words usually abbreviated in 3 total letters; they mean “and others.”

    My understanding from my Latin classes was “et al” means “and others” and et cetera (etc) does not refer to people but can be translated as “and other things.” It is more commonly used as “and so forth.” I know you took Latin in HS also, so am I missing something? Imo that was a poorly worded clue.

      I caught that, too, Jacob, and I agree with you. My response was actually et al, even though it said a 3 word abbreviation, I learned et al and et cetera exactly the way you did in school. Thanks for bringing it up, a very misleading clue indeed.

    How can there be pineapples in Norse mythology? Mead by all means, but not pineapple mead. It is a South American species and would be unknown to the Norse during the period when they formed their mythology.

      idk, I agree with you — but I was just reporting what Alex said when he announced the reversal. The way Cory reacted was cute, like– see, I told ya so. The clue itself just said “godly drink”.

      I don’t suppose they would accept elixir, but I used to call my Dr. Pepper the elixir of the gods. LOL!! My husband would bring it home and say I bought the elixir. Just found out there is a beer named Pineapple Elixir

    Well, I hope Cory doesn’t feel too bad about that DD bet. Even if he made a smaller bet, he would have won the $10K anyway since he missed FJ.

    It looked to me like Jason just knew this one. He was done writing quickly and looked pretty happy about it. :)

    The triple stumpers are online now

      I am giving Cory credit after that painful Daily Double miss, because he was trying to catch up to Jason, who ran that ”Dodge Podge” category in the 1st round, and that helped him get on a roll.
