Three on Thursday.


Today is my big day — the day *my* episode of Jeopardy airs. Here are three things I may or may not have told you about it.

Thing The First.
Johnny Gilbert, the announcer, is in his nineties. At the taping they mentioned that he doesn’t come in until noon on taping day because he is 99. A recent online article said that he is 94. According to Wikipedia, he was born July 13, 1924, which makes him 93.

Thing The Second.
I remember very little of the actual taping. It is a blur. I remember maybe 4 or 5 of the questions, including Final Jeopardy. It will be an interesting refresher to watch the show.

Thing The Third.
There are multiple closed groups on Facebook for Jeopardy! contestants. I am now a member of the Women of Jeopardy! and the Nov. 7 tape day groups. The latter is the people who taped the same day as I did — Nicole, Richard, Heath, Lanier, Charbel, Greg, James. (Fun fact: James is well over six feet tall.) Smokey and I were watching the show last Friday and realized that Graham, who won that day, was in the returning champion in my group. We have been watching the shows this week and recognizing everyone.
