Joey's in a bit of a funk. I'm actually a little bit jealous of him, because he got to do something this week that few of us ever get a chance to do, and I'm sure Hashem will reward him mightily.
Those of you who know Joey, know that one of his lifelong dreams is to be on Jeopardy or Millionaire (and of course to win big). Now, this is no pipe dream. Joey is serious about this stuff and he's GOOD.
Well, Friday afternoon Joey got the long awaited call. Millionaire wanted him!!! Unfortunately, they want him for Succos :( They have no other days available at the moment. Joey was able to tell them that he is terribly sorry but he is an Orthodox Jew and no matter how badly he wants to do this, he is unable to attend the taping.
So if you see Joey this week, give him a high five and be nice to him. He just lost (according to his calculation) at least $50,000 and a chance to live his dream. I'm sure the Heavenly Court is hugging him tight right now.
