Thinking of my 75 Interviews with Alex Trebek

Tomorrow at 8 PM I will be taking the online test to become a contestant on Jeopardy.  My fantasy is to get on the show and break Ken Jennings record of 74 wins.  I will have to think about what to discuss with Alex Trebek on each of my appearances. Hmmm.. Let me think.
  • My being a Mets fan since day 1 in 1962
  • The role of Bob Dylan in my marriage
  • How Lee became the family's biggest fan of Elvis Presley
  • My son the Johnny Cash Fan
  • This Journal
We can all dream, can't we.  I will get 50 questions 15 seconds apart.  They are very difficult and I image there will be thousands of people entering.   People who do well on the test are later called for an interview.  Jeopardy does a very good job in screening contestants.  I also sense there is some age bias in the selection of contestants since I have seen few seniors on the show.

I am giving fair warning especially to someone who lives on the Queens/Nassau border.  Do not phone me between 7:00 and 7:30 PM during the show and 8:00 - 8:30 PM during the test.
