He's now a regular at the pub quiz at O'Brien's. To think I wasn't the first Jeopardy champ with a Jeopardy champ dad to come there!

Had he gotten FJ right against Dan, he would have had a 3-day total of over $47,000. The last qualifier for the 1998 ToC was a 3xer with $42,000. How the J! timeline can shift with one simple change...
That 3xer with $42,000 was Pam Mifflin.

Even if you don't wear the same tie, I think they're going to recognize you, Stephanie.
But I have Alex's fake mustache now! (story at 11..) My husband is in the pool, so he's waiting to hear.
Stephanie, if he gets an invitation, will you accompany him to the audition? Maybe I'll get to meet you both (assuming my prayers are also answered).

If my schedule allows, I will, just to hug Maggie and Corinna and Robert :). Let's hope we're all there!

You could pretend to be casually dropping him off at the door and feign surprise upon seeing them. It would be hilarious if you were handing him his lunch box and bus fare.

Also waiting on DC. My dreams are usually crushed by this point but I am holding out hope. When I got my first (and only) invite in 2009, it came in April.

I checked Philly and I heard nothing. Then again, I only got 34, so my only hope is if the seaborgium magic runs through me.

Seaborgium magic requires you to get an audition, THEN score 34.

In 2012 the audition was in April, don't recall when I got the e-mail.

Scratch that, I still have the e-mail, it came on Valentine's Day.

These seem to be all spread out. From Twitter, it looks like there were people doing their auditions in Raleigh around the time that Detroiters were getting their invitations. If you haven't heard from anyone who's gotten one yet, maybe the DC or Philadelphia invitations will go out in May, while the Detroiters are auditioning.

They apparently only send out audition notices a few weeks in advance of when the auditions are. The last time I got an audition in D.C. it was in late May and I had not gotten an invite by this point in the calendar. Obviously they don't do all the auditions in one bunch, but go out during taping breaks.
I used to be AWSOP but wanted to be more theatrical.

Kids Week is probably different, but I got an audition email about a month before my audition.
