The Quadfathers are excited to announce that one of our own, Mike Lonesky aka Doom Buggy #999 will appear as a contestant on Jeopardy on Friday Oct 5th!! Doom has been a lifelong fan of the show and is always the guy on the team with an interesting fact or joke.

When Doom took the jeopardy Online Test in Fall of 2011, he scored well enough for an in-person audition in New York City. After doing very well in the in-person audition, he was placed into the contestant pool for the next 18 months. About two weeks later, as he was heading to Quadfathers practice (appropriately!) he received the call that he was going to be on the show. After a whirlwind month of preparation and travel arrangements, he found himself at the Sony Studios in Culver City CA ready to make the Quadfathers and the rest of Central New York proud.

Before you ask, no, Doom cant share how he did until after the air date on October 5th, but besides representing the Quadfathers colors by wearing an orange tie, he did try to work roller derby and the Quadfathers into his chat with Alex Trebek after the first commercial break, so we are crossing our fingers that they air it!

Join us in cheering on Doom Buggy on Friday October 5th. You can find the time and channel in your local area here:
