RIP Alex Trebek

Yesterday beloved television host Alex Trebek passed away of pancreatic cancer. It was a crushing blow after all the Election jubilation. After 37 years and over 8,000 episodes of Jeopardy, a show so iconic it spanned from one generation to the next, Trebek felt like more than just a household name. Saturating childhood evening, after evening with your nuclear, he became a family member. No matter the demographic each of us are able to recall the cadence of his voice, his poker face and a gentle spirit that radiated beyond the screen. Thank you Canada for giving us a legend who stoked the competitive American spirit, in a way that brought knowledge and merriment. Leaving us all to wonder, how well would you fare in front of such greatness? Rest in peace and always remember he had the answer, but what is the question?
