Before I forget – like I almost did in tonight’s video – allow me to wish my parents a very happy anniversary!

I won’t tear up like Alex did tonight, but I must admit that was a very touching moment when he wished his mother a happy birthday.

Speaking of tearing up (different pronunciation), Margaret. Margaret! Where have you been all our lives?

Margaret

Great game, but man oh man, that Daily Double in a librarian’s dream category could have been so much more valuable.

Also, Carter! Stellar total against such a juggernaut.

What actually happened

And so another solid run ends. Congrats to Carter and best of luck with the “singing lawyer” career.

It looked like Margaret barely broke a sweat, however – we’ll see how she fares tomorrow.

    Margaret was most impressive. Didn’t miss one she buzzed in on – as memory serves.

What do you think?
