Houston lawyer Mike Choyke’s brush with fame was all too fleeting. The Baker & Botts associate appeared on the television game show “Jeopardy” for the first and last time July 16. He finished third, but it was still a thrill, Choyke says, and he has a camera set and binoculars to show for his troubles. After trying two other times to get on the show, he says, he qualified this year at a Dallas tryout by passing a written test. He heard that he had been chosen at the end of February, the same day his wife learned she was pregnant. “Talk about a red-letter day,” he says. A steady diet of reading is the secret to mastering the trivial, says Choyke, and trial work cuts into that. “If [Baker & Botts] had given me a sabbatical, I would have done better,” he jokes.
