the jeopardy! game

I haven't posted our last few special home version of the jeopardy! game wins, but I got one today.

the game is played thusly: when Alex announces the final jeopardy category, the home contestants (me and David, and Poly if she's interested) have the commercial break to come up with the question, based on the category only.

today's category: The Balkans

as some may know (some=me and mdhornbuckle), we play a game in the house regarding guessing the final jeopardy question before the answer is revealed, based upon the category. For example, the category might be "Comic books and movies" and when they go to commercial break I might yell out "WHO IS TOM WAITS" and then we'd get back from the commercial and see the question is "who played Dr. Heller in the film adaptation of The Mystery Men comic?"

we also sometimes play another game--what will the story be? in this game, we guess what insipid story will be discussed with Alex during the interview portion. for example, i might yell out "PROPOSED TO HIS WIFE THROUGH A BULLHORN WHILE RIDING A ZAMBONI." or 'PROPOSED TO HIS WIFE ON THE CNN TICKER.' My default is "Has a very special serving platter."
