  1. Well, don’t leave us hanging, what were some of the “answers”?

    I am struggling over here. Off the top of my head I couldn’t think of a single answer.

  3. I love jeopardy, been watching it for years. Sasha and Malia as a category is akin to Koko Taylor opening for Lawrence Welk.

    But PPrscribe, was that really second round questions? I mean, I even knew the answers to those questions and I usually only average about 7-8 a show – unless boxing or Motown music is the categories. Well, maybe I didn’t know the answers to ALL the questions. I was sort of hungup on J. Crew.Okay, I knew the answer “jonas brothers” after I read it :-). Isn’t that what everone says …I knew that. Jeopody huh, man, we have overcome.

  4. Carey, it is Kids’ Week on Jeopardy, and all the contestants were, I think between 10 and 14. Don’t get too cocky, though. Some of the categories/answers would have been a challenge for even most adults!

  5. Dang, you just had to spoil a good day. Here I was thinking I was all that and I found out I wasn’t even as smart as a 5th grader :-(.
