Spoiler Talk: CotD (Thurs)
Here is a link to the NY Times Clue of the Day for Thursday’s game. We can talk about this clue that may be today’s Final Jeopardy BEFORE the game airs and take a guess on how many players will get it right. So if you don’t want to read comments about the answer to the clue, READ NO FURTHER. If you do want to talk about it, then click on the link below to see the clue, and fire away!
FYI, we don’t reveal the answer outright but hint at it. It is okay to give possible wrong answers.
We also need to be mindful that the first 11 words of our comments will show up on the homepage sidebar. So prefacing any hint with a short observation is the best way to go.
Any comments with the actual answer will be deleted. All comments and predictions on the CotD posts are deleted after about a week, so be fearless!
An old category: These clues are from a category called “Celebrity High School Yearbook.” It was in the last round of the match played on 1/30/2006 and was accompanied by some images. You guys probably don’t need the images but I thought you’d like to see them all the same so I put them below the clues.
$200: This comedian was once suspended for three days from his Andover, Massachusetts high school for burning rubber in the parking lot
$400: A cheerleader & 1980 graduate of Van Nuys High School; years later, she’d be “Idol”ized by millions
$600: Sadly, this 1949 Fairmount, Indiana high school graduate would live but a few years after his picture was taken
$800: This actress has total recall of her high school days in Pennsylvania, as a self-described uber-geek & outsider
$1000: He’s the 12-time Grammy-winning country music legend & 1950 Dyess High School graduate seen here
