(Photo courtesy Baltimore Sun) You old timers all know Palestra Jon from his epic battles with Bob T. But Palestra was also quite a decent quizzo player in his own right. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. His daughter Sarah is going to be on Jeopardy on Friday night as part of their College Championship. Sarah has played quizzo with her dad since she was in high school, though we haven’t seen her much lately since she’s gone away to school. Well, she recently did an interview with the Baltimore Sun about her experience on Jeopardy, and it’s pretty daggone funny. Of course, she’s not the first quizzo player to star on the small screen. Celeste DiNucci (who, incredibly, once won a pack of blunt rolling papers for finishing last at quizzo) actually won over $250,000 in a Jeopardy Tournament of Champions a few years ago and I got this great interview with her. And our buddy Sam, who has played in several Quizzo Bowls and used to play at the Bards semi-regularly won a million bucks on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. And who can forget Steve-O’s ridiculous performance on Name That Video, where he won a car for naming 10 videos in like 15 seconds? We don’t know how Sarah has done, since she can’t tell, but be sure to watch this Friday on Jeopardy to find out!
