Wolf as a deer

One of the simple pleasures of life is watching an episode of Jeopardy!, especially when you know the answers. And when they do their celebrity shows they throw softball answers. After all, they are playing for charity and actors don't exactly try out for the show.

CNN News Anchor Wolf Blitzer was matched with Dana "The Desperate Housewife" Delaney and Andy Richter, the comedian.

What an enjoyable show it was. Wolf was like a deer in the headlights, finishing with a MINUS $4,600. For me it just proves that George Soros can't be everywhere at once. Like Obama without a Teleprompter, the puppet is nothing without the puppeteer.
Then there's Ms. Delaney. Her answers were intelligent enough, she was just slow to ring in. She finished with $4,800
Andy Richter was poised and intelligent throughout. I guess that's what improv will do for you. He ended regular play with $39,000, wagered high on the final question, and took home $68,000 for St. Jude Hospital.All in all, it was a most enjoyable contest.
