Walnut Creek resident Natalie Tyson appeared as a contestant on “Jeopardy!” Monday night and used her moment in the spotlight to tell America about her love for the Oakland A’s.
During the game show’s first commercial break, she recalled a day at RingCentral Coliseum during which she enjoyed a trip around the field with Stomper, the team’s elephant mascot.
“He can’t talk, but I feel like we really formed a strong friendship that day,” she told “Jeopardy!” producer and current guest host Mike Richards.
Tyson, an academic advisor, then playfully peered into the camera and said, “So, Stomper, hopefully, if you’re watching, you felt the same way.” Natalie Tyson
“I’m sure he’s touched,” remarked Richards, who went on to say, “We have a little rivalry on the ‘Jeopardy!’ stage.”
Richards pointed out that the returning champion, Sam Stapleton, a college consultant from Los Gatos, is a big Giants fan.
“They’re a bit of a good luck charm,” Stapleton said, going on to explain that in 2010 he and his wife bought their first house and the Giants won the World Series. In 2012, the Giants were champs again and their son was born, and in 2014 the Giants captured their third title and they welcomed a new daughter.
“So in 2021 — getting on ‘Jeopardy!’ — it’s their year again,” Stapleton claimed, to which Tyson vigorously shook her head.
And so it was on!
Unfortunately for Tyson, she was unable to match the achievements of the 2020 A’s, who, um, stomped all over the hapless, pathetic, worthless Giants. (Can you tell I’m an A’s fan?). She mustered only $1,000 and finished in third place while Stapleton won the game with $17,100.
Stapleton, who has a very respectable two-day total of $50,301, will be going for three in a row tonight. Tyson, meanwhile, will be watching from her Walnut Creek home.
