Rush Fan Bets $2112 And Wins On Jeopardy

(hennemusic) A Rush fan proudly displayed her fandom for the Canadian rock trio when she wagered $2112 on Thursday's episode of Jeopardy on her way to a win on the long-running TV quiz show.

Contestant Jennifer Morrow made the Rush-themed bet when she hit the Daily Double during the program before correctly answering the trivia question.

Morrow also brought a pair of Neil Peart's drumsticks with her as a token of luck. "I was always inspired by tales of knights in shining armor who would ride into battle with a token of favor from somebody they admired," said Morrow. "So I thought I would do that here. I'm a huge fan of the Canadian prog-rock trio Rush. And so I went to one of their concerts a while back and from the front row I held up a banner that said, 'May be on Jeopardy! Request token of favor to carry in thy honor'

"And apparently Neil Peart, the greatest drummer in the world," she added while displaying a pair of his drumsticks, "is a fan of the greatest show in the world." Check out video here.
