I was so excited yesterday to see a whole category devoted to my hometown – Queens, NY – on Jeopardy! last night! What’s more, there was even a $2,000 question about my neighborhood:
It ain’t no Waldorf, but this neighborhood has lots of Greeks, & Telly’s Taverna–To Die For.
The answer? What is Astoria.
I have to say, though, I was a little disappointed by Alex Trebek’s accent. He sounded like a cross between a gangster and Fran Drescher. People from Queens do not sound like that.
Here’s a link to all the questions from last night’s Queens category.
