Jeopardy is one of the longest-running and most famous TV game shows ever and at some point, they've covered everything - including Abilene, Sweetwater, and the surrounding area. As a matter of fact, there have been at least 9 questions about the Abilene area in the history of Jeopardy!.

How do I know? I merely searched the Jeopardy Archive (J! Archive).

To me, these are all fairly easy questions. What about you?

  • With Eileen in Abilene & Allison in Galveston, it's the title reason why George Strait hangs his hat in Tennessee 
    • All My Ex's Live in Texas
  • A sampling of I-20 cities to visit in this state: Abilene, Ranger & White Settlement
    • Texas
  • It's north of Abilene & can also be either a dinner jacket or a complete formal outfit
    • Tuxedo
  • Cattleman C.W. Merchant apparently named this Texas city after a Kansas cattle town
    • Abilene
  • A regional airport in Texas: ABI
    • Abilene
  • This Texas city was named for the Kansas town that Dwight D. Eisenhower once called home
    • Abilene
  • With 627 turbines, the world's largest onshore wind farm is north of San Angelo in the wide-open west of this state
    • Texas
  • This Texas city is the seat of Nolan County
    • Sweetwater
  • Slither on over to Sweetwater in this large state for its annual roundup of diamondbacks
    • Texas

While other cities may appear more on Jeopardy, at least we've got our little corner in the quiz show's annals. I always knew we had a bunch of wind turbines in our area but had no idea we had the largest onshore wind farm.
