Sometime this past August, the 2021 season for the television game show called Jeopardy ended. Patti and I began following Jeopardy last April after it was announced that Aaron Rodgers (the Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers NFL team) was going to guest host Jeopardy for two weeks. And? We have continued (almost daily) to watch Jeopardy. At the end of this past ‘2021 season’ one winner (Matt Amodio), had won 18 consecutive shows amassing over one half a million dollars ($574,801) in winnings. So, for perhaps four weeks Patti and I have been counting down the day to the start of this new season on Monday, September 13th, 2021.

We could hardly wait to see IF Matt Amodio would continue to win more games.

6pm Monday, September 13, 2021 finally arrived.

“Hot Diggety Dog Patti. It’s time for Jeopardy.”


We turned on our televison set eagerly looking forward to Jeopardy and what on earth was on : Monday Night Football was on and NOT Jeopardy!

I was aggravated and so too was Patti (more disappointed than aggravated).


On a zero to 100 scale, there was a time when me being aggravated because Monday Night Football was being shown, and Jeopardy was NOT being shown, would have been a solid 100!

“THAT would never, ever happen with me!” A game show being more important than Monday Night Football! NO way!!

But last night that is exactly what happened.

What to do? 

We watched the second half of the Baltmore Ravens and the Las Vegas Raiders in an absolutely astounding game. Las Vegas won the game in overtime (and NO I am not going to bore you with the numerous details that made the game one game in one hundred games any football fan waits for).

And? After the game ..

Jeopardy came on and Patti and I had our cake and got to eat it too.

Smiling .. Cap and Patti

Oh by the way. Matt Amodio won his 19th show on Monday night and added another $67,800 to his above winnings!
