I took my Scholastic Bowl Varsity Team (ok just 4 of them!) to a National Convention at the Hyatt Renissance Hotel (by O'Hare airport). Out of all the peolpe that were there, my guys ran into none other than Ken Jennings(shown in photo). For those of you that aren't Jeopardy! watchers, he is the guy that holds the record for the longest winning streak on Jeopardy! (His book is quite a good read Brainiac). For the Academic crowd, this was like meeting the President! He happens to be very involved in Scholastic Bowl -or Academic Bowl or Quiz Bowl....pick a name you understand!---and he was very very nice to the kids.
