Dennis Coffey just won over $50,000 on Jeopardy! (!) He has returned home to his gig at Duffy's Bar on Old Orchard Beach and, as you can see on this News Center Maine piece, is still very much a down to Earth guy.

I love that people are coming from miles around to take selfies and get autographs from Dennis Coffey.

I once saw a short documentary on how difficult it is to compete on 'Jeopardy!' and I remember a very nerve wracking progression of tests that eliminate dozens of would be contestants.

I'm so happy for Dennis that he went through the process again after not making it on his first attempt. To say it has payed off would be a tremendous understatement.

I will finish this article with a bit of a warning, if you are in Duffy's on trivia night and discover that you're competing against the man on this video? RUN AWAY!
