‘Jeopardy’ contestant whose ‘Cheers’-referencing final response went viral wishes she’d written ‘War Eagle’

What is War Eagle? It’s what Elizabeth Williams kinda sorta wishes she’d written down for her Final Jeopardy answer on Monday. Heck, we all do. But what she went with, a response almost identical to Cliff Clavin’s Jeopardy swan song on a Season 8 episode of Cheers, was still pretty awesome—so awesome it upstaged the […]
