If you haven’t watched Sports Jeopardy! in awhile, you’ll notice the biggest thing: Champions come back until they lose!
|Jordan Honan, a grocery retail specialist from Raleigh, NC
||Aaron Smiley, an athletics coordinator from Jacksonville, FL
||Vinny Varadarajan, an engineering graduate from Fords, NJ 9-day total: $45,000
Some other interesting things: They have the contestants sit in the audience and get called down! I liked Jordan’s reaction!
Vinny got 2 of the game’s three Daily Doubles, and made the most of them! While I can’t speak from personal experience, it’s so difficult going up against a superchamp like Vinny on the buzzer!
I was quite impressed with Jordan picking up a significant amount of the game’s CanCon, including a clue about the 1994 Expos!

So Vinny has won his 10th; will he win #11 next Wednesday?
