    I question “stroke” as medical event. That generally means something related to a medical procedure or treatment.

  2. Becci Boyd says:

    Becca? Is that what she wrote as her name? Or did you just truncate it?

    • VJ says:

      That’s how she was introduced by Johnny Gilbert and what she wrote down for her own name (you can see that for yourself on the Who Won post). I thought I heard Alex call her “Rebecca” at least once– I think it was before she made her DD bet in the second round.

    well Tucker had a good game run, too bad he missed too many final jeopardy questions but stil lets see how well phil will do in tomorrow’s game. Also, VJ/ what books do you remember reading back in grade school by F Scott Fitzgerald?

    • VJ says:

      I wasn’t reading any Fitzgerald books in grade school, Lou. In fact, I don’t even remember what our reading assignments were in grade school but, on my own time, I liked reading biographies, particularly saints, like Joan of Arc.

      That reminds me that the $200 clue in Biblical Pairs was wrong about who the angel was talking to. “Fear not… I bring you good tidings” is what the angel said to a group of shepherds when Jesus was born. The angel told the shepherds where to go to see the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes in a manger.

      • Lou says:

        Agreed, trebek should have told the writers about that clue and make the corrections before the clue can be revealed. Still no reversals are used today

        • VJ says:

          Nah, it’s not part of Trebek’s job to make sure the clues are correct. As the host, though, he has had to say something about it when it’s a big deal. It was a big deal when it happened on June 11, 2012, because the bible clue they messed up that time was the Final Jeopardy! clue.

    Becca finished the first round with $9,000.

  5. Richard Corliss says:

    Aww, so much for that wager. :(

  6. rhonda says:

    Glad that it actually turned out to be “his” first novel instead of “this” first novel, as I knew which author it was but would have gotten the title wrong.
