Fulfilling a long time ambition, John Hashop made it as a contestant on Jeopardy!, airing this week.

You can see him online via the Jeopardy! weekly show guide.

Today’s episode already played in Dallas/Fort Worth; it is a riveting barn burner of a contest. Check your local listings and set your DVR or TiVo if there’s still time. You don’t want to miss this one.

I remember John playing VHS recordings of Jeopardy into our dorm room as a first-year. His mom recorded them for him during the summer and school year so he would not miss out. John also led our Kappa Sigma team to a College Bowl victory in 1998.

Congratulations John! You make us all proud!
