You've only been able to go an unlimited time on Jeopardy for the previous 9 months. I think some guy did like 9 days in January. Again, not to knock the guy but I think that it's not nearly as impressive as it sounds, once you have all the facts. Common theme with you no, mikey??RIP RowdyRoddyPipermikebell never did receive his winnings

there's an article from 2015 about why Mike Bell was right,
