UPDATE: I’m bumping up the Jeopardy post about Austin Rogers because I had thousands of hits on that one post which says lots of people are searching for information about him. You commenters are helping a lot too. Last night, wow, just wow. I adore Austin’s style and his mind is so keen.
If, for any reason, you’ve missed Jeopardy, or want to see all the questions in a neat recap form, this Jeopardy Fan website is a keeper.

Meet Austin Rogers, the champ all week on Jeopardy.
He’s quirky. Smart as hell. They’ve had to bleep him. He talks with his hands and he speaks his mind.
WELLLLLLLLL, come to find out in tonight’s episode he grew up in Pound Ridge, his father was ranger of Ward Pound Ridge, and in the summers he helped his dad doing ranger duties.
Forgive the lousy video, taken by Mr. EOS with cell phone, but Austin’s comments are a hoot…
Now, to get his humor you have to understand here we have two high schools – Fox Lane in Bedford and John Jay in Katonah. Rivals in every athletic and academic sense. very different schools, very different student body, John Jay more the white kid jock, and apparently, drinkers too!!!
Reader Cos Harbour, who admits here to being a Fox Lane grad, what say you about Austin? I’m guessing his diss about John Jay means he, Austin, went to Fox Lane! Does he look familiar? Austin doesn’t have any social media I can find, no Twitter, and I don’t do Facebook or Instagram, but if you run across anything about him, holler.
I love his character and I’m thrilled he keeps winning. So many champs are predicable and boorrrrring. Go Austin! He’s won $
