Like millions and millions of Americans, Penn State graduate student Bill Cossen is a fan of the Grateful Dead. Cossen is currently on a tear on the Jeopardy!, winning $31,801 over the past two nights. Tonight he won again, extending his win streak.

Bet you thought he was a hippie burnout, didn’t you? Here he is explaining his love for the greatest band to ever exist:
As Jambase points out, Jeopardy has been speaking my musical langue this week:
If you’re reading this post because you, like me, really, really like the Grateful Dead, go listen to their Wake Up To Find Out official release from a Nassau Coliseum show with Branford Marsalis in 1990. It’s tremendous, beginning to end. The “Eyes of the World” — if you haven’t heard it before — will bring tears to your eyes.
Congrats Bill Cossen. This Jerry Garcia blues standard seems appropriate.
