Lots of questions this evening.

Tonight’s game featured the first time I’d ever seen something in a game – and in a ToC semifinal, no less. What was it?

More importantly, will Alex Jacob, Brennan Bushee, or Vaughn Winchell be moving on to the finals?

And finally, why am I cracking up?

Brennan Bushee went through the entire first round without successfully buzzing in once. I know how frustrating that can be; kudos to him for mounting a serious comeback in the second round.

Unfortunately for him and Vaughn, Alex salted away the game by finding that last Daily Double. And then there was that Final Jeopardy! response, which has me a little off my game in tonight’s video.

So far there have been only two lock games in this tournament, and Alex Jacob has both of them. Congratulations, sir, and best of luck in the finals!

Matt Jackson, Andrew Haringer, and Catherine Hardee go toe-to-toe-toe tomorrow for the last finalist spot. Who will it be? Cast your vote on my preview.
