End of an era. 

My favorite thing about Trebek is how much he got away with on that show, he never held back when somebody who really didn’t belong there somehow ended up on stage. 

RIP

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I actually never really thought about it at the time since I usually took his side but he could be ruthless when he wanted to.
RIP
Just got up off the couch to drop a deuce while the band belts out Fuckerpants.

Yep, he was the man.  It was mainstay in my house when i lived with my parents.  My dad and I even went to Radio City Music Hall for the $1,000,000 Tournament of Champions and it was a big day for me lol.  RIP.

Fuck. I love that show. Always have. I think I watched parts of every episode this week even.

I devised a plan to take over the world when I was probably 10 by getting on Jeopardy and betting negative infinity on final jeopardy and getting it wrong, thus gaining infinite wealth. Thanks for the memories, Alex.
