Kalamazoo Becomes a Clue on Jeopardy! Again
Loyal watchers of Jeopardy! know that Kalamazoo finds its way into the games with some regularity. And the Southwest Michigan city was featured on the show again recently.
Kalamazoo was featured on the episode that aired Friday, October 5. Here was the answer:

You know if you were watching, you'd have screamed "Michigan" at your TV. The answer is, of course, a reference to the Kalamazoo Promise. An eagle-eyed Kalamazoo Public School employee caught the reference and shared the question on the district's Facebook page.
In March 2018, Kalamazoo got double love on the same day when the city was featured in clues in back-to-back episodes of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!. See both of them here. And these are 15 times in the history of Jeopardy! when Kalamazoo was featured.
