Shark Week

A Connecticut teenager is angry over losing on Jeopardy last week after misspelling the answer to the game show's "Final Jeopardy" question. The 8th grader got the question right, but he added an extra "t" to the spelling of "emancipation" and host Alex Trebek ruled against him for the misspelling. Now the teen feels "cheated" and embarassed. Even if he got it right he had no chance of winning as the leader that day landed a $66,000 payday and a new Kids Week record. (story)
