One of Moline’s Middle Schools Featured On Jeopardy Wednesday
I got in the habit of watching Jeopardy with my grandma years ago. Every day, "Ope, it's 4:30, time for Jeopardy." Yesterday, I might have finally guessed an answer correctly, because there was no way I was getting this one wrong - it's about the Quad Cities.
In the Double Jeopardy! round of Wednesday, October 5th's episode, one of the categories was "Company Towns."
After correctly guessing "Steel", contestant Tory correctly for $1200 to answer the clue "Lynch, Kentucky was built in 1917 by U.S. Coal & Coke, a subsidiary of U.S. this."
She asked for another category "Company Towns" for $800.
The clue that popped up is one we should all get.
"If you attend JDMS in the agricultural equipment-making town of Moline, Illinois, that's short for this middle school"
It's an easy question.
John Deere is headquartered in Moline, and JDMS - John Deere Middle School.
I timestamped to the exact moment the answer the question, it was around the 13:00 mark.
Jeopardy is on at 4:30 on weekdays on your local NBC affiliate.
