    I do remember a clue asking who replaced Eagleton. I believe he was from Maryland?

    • VJ says:

      Eagleton was from Missouri, Rhonda. Agnew was from Maryland. Oh, the irony!!

      • rhonda says:

        That’s right, thanks for straightening me out, VJ! Yuck, Agnew and his nattering nabobs of nepotism, whatever that meant lol. I must have had Maryland on my brain from the state song FJ the other night, although Missouri was an answer to another clue, too, I think.

      awesome quote. thx for sharing.

      • VJ says:

        Your welcome, Maori. I put a quote of the day on Spoiler Talk every day and that’s the coincidence — that I had a Ben Franklin quote and the show had a Quotable Ben Franklin category :)

    Congrats to all the teachers. It was an enjoyable 2 weeks. Next week the Power Players, then back to Buzzy.

    Darn, my wild card winning it all hopes are dashed. Good game Jason.

    Looked up Toni Morrison out of curiosity as to why Anthony was her middle name…. turns out it’s not. Her birth name is Chloe Ardelia Wofford.

    Rootsweb and various other places say “Anthony” was her baptismal name when she converted to Catholicism at age 12. and that the nickname Toni was based on that.

    Congratulations, Jason! We’ll see you in the next TOC. Kaberi and Jill, you were able to pass the quarter-final test, and you were able to pass the semi-final test, but you weren’t able to pass the final test, and as a result, your run’s over. Got to go!

      Jason Sterlacci also makes history by becoming the 1st middle school teacher ever to win the Teachers Tournament. Charles Temple, 1st ever Teachers Tournament winner, Patrick Quinn and, of course, Colby Burnett were high school teachers, while John Pearson and Jennifer Giles, 1st female winner ever, were elementary school teachers.

    So they did save the hard FJs for the last two matches. Here’s a link to a dozen clues from this game

    • EricS says:

      I think they wanted to place the emphasis on the first two rounds of the semifinals. That seems fair to me.

    • VJ says:

      Now I can say the whole name of the campaign that I was talking about on Spoiler Talk. Lawyers for McGovern, though I never saw a McGovern/Shriver button myself. (There have been a few clues asking who replaced Eagleton)
