Burglarized game shop receives incredible support

Brenda and John Romero grew up in Ogensburg, NY which is a town of about 10,000 on the St Lawrence River.  Both of them make video games, and have worked on such titles as Doom, Wolfenstein 3D and Quake.  A Local game shop in Ogdensburg called "I Got Game" had only been open a month when it was burglarized and wiped out completely. 


Brenda and John wanted to do whatever they could do to get the shop back on their feet.  Brenda made a plea on her Facebook page which read “Game Devs-HELP? Donate a signed copy of your game?.  She also posted a picture of the burglarized shop.  Epic Games, which is a powerhouse in the gaming world saw the post and reached out to donate games to the store, as well as others the Romeros knew offered to donate as well. 


The store said on their Facebook page “We would really like to thank everyone for being so kind and generous”. “We appreciate all the cash, items and time that have been donated to the shop in the past town days.  When this incident happened we really had no idea how we were going to be able to stay open but with everyone’s support it looks like we will be okay.”



Have a great day, and let the good news be yours!




Teen Jeopardy contestant wins with awesome final answer

Leonard Cooper, won the 'Teen Jeopardy' tournament this week with a $37,000 score and a $75,000 toal for first place.  It wasn't just the impressive amount of money that he came away with, or the even cooler afro that he was sporting, but it was his answer to final Jeopardy that received mass attention.

Closing out the second round, Leonard made a clutch daily double where he risked his $18,000 doubled it!  The final Jeopardy category was "Military Men".  The answer was "On June 6, 1944, he said, 'The eyes of the world are upon you.'" The question was: "Who is Dwight D. Eisenhower?".

Cooper was in the lead and didn't know the answer, so he said: "Who is some guy in Normandy. But I just won $75,000!"

He received an hilarious uproar from the crowd and a huge laugh and smile from host Alex Trebek! 

"One of the things I love about this teen tournament is these guys have marvelous senses of humor!", Alex Trebek exclaimed :)

And that's what's good,
