    A search of the J-Archive brings up only 1 substantial clue about Salieri that doesn’t allude to Mozart the rival or Amadeus the play, this Final Jeopardy clue from 2005:

    COMPOSERS: He moved to Vienna in 1766; in 1778 he presented his native Italy with the first opera staged at La Scala

    Matt killed it in the 1st round but then TJ made a nice comeback on the DJ round. I was so rooting for him. Emily didn’t look like she was having a good time.

    Matt appeared annoyed with himself for not betting more on his second DD. But he still ‘danced’ himself to victory.

    FJ— the clue was characterized by 3 different people on Cotd as well written, cluttered and interesting. I say, all of the above, more or less. Happily, none of the contestants took the bait (if that’s what it was).

    Matt and Emily are the name of Alex’s two kids.

    Well I’ll give Eric credit for predicting the number of correct FJs.

    Paganini is Italian, but he was not born until 1782, and I doubt that he made a piece at an age of less than 10 (though Paganini is also a musical genius).

    I just hope that at least one more really strong player qualifies before the deadline, though. The past few winners have not overly impressed me.

      Well, they may do the same thing that they did last year when the players were eligible to be in the ToC for part of this season.

      Did anyone notice that pink was a response to two clues in this match? One in Symbolic Names (yeah, a capital P) and the other in Botany

      10 more clues from the match are over here

    Taxonomic Film List is a clever category title.
