    I came here for the first time, because in my time zone to watch Jeopardy ‘live’ isn’t possible for me. And as to my reason today, was an attempt to find out if Jon won the game again, as it was interrupted in the middle of Double J for a ‘breaking news’ announcement and whoosh, it was gone. I’m rather disappointed he lost, I like his demeanor and self-deprecating humor.

    The main problem about that question about the Sami is that the only people calling the Sami the only real indigenous people of Europe are genocidists and SJWs. It’s a term loaded these days in order to attempt to delegitimize European people’s ownership of their own bloody homelands: one wonders then what lands European peoples are supposed to call their own? It’s an offensive, hate-loaded question and should _never_ have made it onto the show. Shame on the writers. Absolutely disgusting.

      I’m sure the question may generate quite a bit of discussion about anthropology, especially with regards to definitions and fluidity of ancestry. There have been studies that show that many current French, German, and Spanish people share mitochondrial DNA going back to the earliest Cro-Magnan inhabitants of southern and central Europe. It’s hard to imagine someone being “more indigenous” than one whose ancestors were there at the same time as Neanderthals.

    He failed to take risks on the daily doubles and on the final … sometimes it pays off sometimes it doesn’t! I thought final jep was was but then again I saw “make way for Lila” when I was a kid, a film not too many saw in this country. It was the B movie to some other movie but I liked it better!

    Well, Jon had a great run, he had a little more than Vaughn Winchell did in his five game run back in 2014. I wonder if it’s racist to call the Sami lapps, vj? I’m going to be blunt here but I think if that is offensive to them, lack of respect was shown.

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, I really didn’t get the impression that it’s racist to call the Sami Lapps. There’s more than one article out there that says they are not all offended by it. I got the impression that they would rather go by their own name then the name(s) given to them by other Europeans and probably, they’re being there before the other civilizations has a lot to do with it. I think it’s more like they were Sami before others came and began calling them something else, and they want everyone to know that and respect it.

      I thought of it more as, say, the Cote D’Ivoire not wanting anyone to call their country the Ivory Coast anymore. They announced that officially but not everyone knows it. Some will continue to call the country the Ivory Coast, with no disrespect intended, until the majority gets on the same page.

      The clue is really helpful in bringing the topic up and showing that many people only know them by the name given to them. A lot of people will look it up and learn about this preference because of the clue.

    Jon lost the game essentially because Susan got the last clue in DJ! for $800, breaking the 14600-7200 lock Jon had going into the last clue.

    • VJ says:

      That ain’t why he lost the game. He lost it because he thought it was cute to bet the face amount on his Daily Doubles. lol

    And we hope to see Jon Eisenman in the Tournament of Champions as he is currently in 13th place in the current standings.
