Jason Zuffranieri lost last night! After 18 wins and over half a million dollars, he had become the third highest earner in the game’s history. But now, he too is history.
I confess, I’m a Jeopardy geek. It always makes people laugh, but I have feeling there are a lot of us out there. My parents were among the legions of Jeopardy fans. I still think of them when I turn the show on, since they tuned in almost every night.
Alex Trebek has been hosting the show since 1984. He is one of those multi-generational family threads, since now I have kids who are fans. I fear we may be witnessing Trebek’s final season, given his highly publicized cancer news. A giant of old-world celebrity TV, now a threatened species. Strange, but seeing him go will be a personal loss - another severing of ties to my past.
