PSAF (Palmer Student Alumni Foundation) put on a Jeopardy game during our 9:20 a.m. club hour. It was $1 to get in, and the proceeds went to a scholarship fund.
Our contestants were Dr. Torgerud and Dr. Freedman representing the first years. Dr. Littrell and Dr. Firth representing the second years, and Dr. Quist and Dr. Silverman representing the third years. Our “Alex Trebek” was Dr. Barber.
The contestants fought tirelessly trying to rack their brains on chiropractic history (which close to none of the questions were answered correctly), X-rays and anatomy, song bytes, Quad Cities facts, a special category all about Dr. Weinert (in which Dr. Freedman answered all but one question correctly and on the last one confused Dr. Wienerts favorite drink of Diet Mt. Dew for just plain ol’ Mt. Dew). The last category was a miscellaneous category covering a wide variety of topics such as what is the name of the piece of skin covering the elecronon process? None of our constestants could come up with the correct answer of weenis, which consequently led to a lot of weenis jokes.
We also got a couple sneak peak karaoke demonstrations by a few of the contestants. Freeman sang some of “I Will Survive” for a couple extra points. Dr. Quist started singing the national anthem at some point, and Dr. Torgerud finished us off with a taste of “Let it Go” from “Frozen.”
It seemed like most of the game the Torgerud/Freedman team were in the negatives, then the Weinert category came up and they pulled it together just to fall back behind. The Firth/Littrell team pulled strong the whole game, and ended up taking the trophy. The final scores came out to be Team 1 with -5,199 points, Team 2 with 4,950 points and Team 3 with -19,900. Yesm those points are correct but only because teams one and three we’re using borrowed money during final jeopardy.
All the contestants played well, and we had a great time testing their knowledge!
