Schuylkill/Berks County Question Appears on Jeopardy

On Wednesday evening, those watching Jeopardy were surprised by a question that was from our area
In the "answer", the following was stated:

"Route 61 Passes Through Schuylkill Gap just north of the city of Hamburg in this state".

One of the contestants did get the correct answer which was of course was "What is Pennsylvania?".

Many though had questioned what the Schuylkill Gap was.

The Schuylkill Gap is a "water gap" that flows through the Blue Mountain that is located about 3 miles north of Hamburg.  A better description is the area where Port Clinton resides.  The borough itself is actually within the gap.  Route 61 actually passes through it as well.
