My brother is going to be on Jeopardy tomorrow!
We held our breaths when he drove up to Chicago for the interview/try-outs, but as the months (like, lots of months) ticked by and he didn't hear anything we thought the chance had passed. Then he got the call, out of the blue, and he immediately started carrying around a pen, clicking it nonstop to give his thumb, the trigger finger, a workout.
He's one of the smartest guys I know which made it absolutely no fun to play games with him when we were growing up. He also liked to create rules that gave him the advantage (he's kind of a butt like that...but so are the woes of the younger sister :) ). There's one thing for sure though - I couldn't be prouder of him. It takes a bit of guts to get yourself on national television. And tomorrow night I get to say, "Hey, that's my brother up there."
So just in case you're home and have the television on, look of the guy from Whitestown, Indiana and cheer him on. I will be.
