If you were thought you were done watching ‘Jeopardy’ this week after Jelisa Castrodale finished her run, you were wrong. Tune in tonight to see one of my oldest friends in the world, Kara Spak!
Kara was there for my first speeding ticket, the invention of the “Pineapple Dance”, the infamous Dormont dive bar crawl, and through every romantic relationship I’ve ever had when I’ve needed an outside ear. You will never meet anyone as committed to having a good life as Kara.
(And for the sporties, when she was in graduate school at Columbia, Leslie Visser was her assigned mentor. Kara got to see her in action covering football for ABC and saw firsthand how rough sports journalism could be, even for someone as well respected as Visser.)
