Lisa Is a mind reader?

That was the question the “Danger” watchers were questions after the game of the reigning champion came from behind to beat her challenger by a single of George Washington.

Technical services librarian Lisa Mueller was trailing retired English teacher John Bizal with $14,200 $22,400. (Just for the record, customer solutions advisor AJ Freeman was hanging around $8,000, also.) The Final Jeopardy category was the Roman History, and the prompt:

“Of this battle in 31 B. C., Virgil wrote, ‘Neptune’s fields grow red with fresh slaughter.'”

Easy, right?

The third place AJ went first and it was all from “Rome” to fall him $1000 after bet and lose $7,000.

The Final Jeopardy question

The second place Lisa was next, and got the answer, “The Battle of Acium,” bet $2,200, and brought its total to $16,400, still far behind John.

All John had to do, was this right, and he would be back tomorrow. His answer was … Salerno. Error!

But his efforts would be even more crushing.

John bet $6,001, taking him down to $16,399

A dollar less than Lisa.

“Way to go, young lady!” host Alex Trebek admonished as Lisa stared in disbelief, and John began the rest of his old high school teacher days wondering how it could have been.
