Retro Baltimore: 50 things we miss

Goucher student Sarah Bart trails going into finals on 'Jeopardy!' tonight

The Baltimore Sun

Goucher College senior Sarah Bart enters tonight's final on 'Jeopardy's College Championship'  in second place, $8,200 behind the leader.

Bart was leading Monday going into Final Jeopardy, but missed this question: "In 2011, Elizabeth II marked the 400th anniversay of this, assembled by 47 translators in Oxford, London and Cambridge."

The correct answer: "What is the 'King James Bible?'"

Bart's answer: "What is the 'Oxford English Dictionary?'"

I might be a little biased here, but I think the question is poorly phrased and a little misleading. Thank you very much, Alex.

OK, I am biased on this one. As I acknowledged in a previous post on Bart's run that I teach at Goucher, though I do not know the contestant.

Don't count Bart out. She is a daring player who bets aggressively. And I am told by serious followers of this TV game show that is a good way to come out on top in the end.
