MLB game logger wins three straight on Jeopardy

Here you thought baseball geeks -- which, yes, I admit I'm one -- only knew stuff about baseball and our mother's basement.

Dan McShane, a game logger for MLB productions, is cleaning up on Jeopardy. He won Tuesday night, marking his third consecutive victory -- running his total winnings to $40,001. He's going to be going for a fourth straight win Wednesday night (WestlslipPatch).

According to a Jeopardy fan blog (yes, they evidently have those), McShane took down a six-time defending champion on Friday and there have only been 18 six-time champs -- apparently they call those "superchamps" -- in the history of the long-running show. So McShane is halfway home to geeky immortality.

Good luck to him and kudos on hauling in nearly the U.S. per capita income in just three days on a half-hour game show.

UPDATE: He won again Wednesday night, raking in another $21,600.

As a mother of 2 boys on the autistic spectrum, though they are high functioning, I highly take offense to the use of that word as well! Think before your speak!

"Who is the most retarded person to "write" for CBS??" alex?

Correct!
My daughter has autism. Using that ignorant word you did is much more offensive to me than trying to hurt my feelings for what I wrote. Call me a moron or something like that (idiot, buffoon, etc.), since you seem to be the type of person that can't constructively criticize people and instead enjoy hurling insults from the cloak of anonymity.
