Opening Arguments

We have a finalist

I don't know if you've been watching the "Jeopardy!" teen tournament last week and this, but Hoosier Rachel Cooke, a senior at Fishers High School, won Monday night to qualify as one of the three finalists. (Here's a story that was published before her first appearance.) I've been watching the tournament, but I usually skip it. It's no big deal to miss a bunch of questions on the show's regular episodes. There is a lot of trivia to know, and on any given night there can be a lot of categories I'm not good at. But it is a little embarrassing to miss a lot of questions that the high school kids can answer.

The two-day final is on Thursday and Friday, 7:30-8 p.m., CBS.

My wife watches Jeopardy religiously, and while I often do, the one I find amusing is that I can walk into the room, answer a question (stone cold) that NO ONE else gets, and then miss another one which was a lot easier...!

Go figure.

And GO Rachel!

It's funny what people know and don't know. Remember Ken Jennings. After winning more than $2.5 million by answering obscure questions in dozens of categories, he missed on a question I (and most people watching) knew the answer to. "Most of this firm's 70,000 seasonal white-collar employees work only 4 months a year." H&R Block!!! we all screamed at the TV. Ken said FedEx.

I watched this intelligent young lady. What a great tribute to the young people in our state
