    Wheel of Fortune at 7, Jeopardy at 7:30. Every evening at my grandma’s house.
    Looking back, it’s astonishing how many answers (questions?)she knew, the level of knowledge possessed by an old lady with an 8th grade education. Alex Trebek’s voice was always so comforting because it reminds me of her… thankful for reruns and internet videos.
    It is a sad day.

    I’ve been watching Jeopardy every afternoon with my wife, who will not outlive Trebek by too much. We’re both big fans, and it was great to see him carry on in the face of almost insurmountable odds.

    Let me echo Em. Fish cancer.Report

    No one will replace Trebek’s laconic, genial manner and quiet celebration of geekiness and knowledge. What a loss.Report
