Alex Trebek was in our area yesterday taping a segment for an upcoming category on Jeopardy. I didn’t know about it until it was all over. If you’re interested, you can read about it here.
I used to watch Jeopardy All. The. Time. And I used to be pretty good playing along with the contestants. I don’t watch much TV now and when I do, it’s not the time when Jeopardy is on. In fact there are days that go by when we don’t even turn on the TV.
When I was in college, my roommate and I would watch the show and play along and we’d even keep score. The loser washed the dishes. The show came on at 12:30 in the afternoon. I’d get back to our apartment after my morning classes and we’d sit and watch the show while we ate lunch. One day Jane was answering ALL the questions correctly and I thought something was up. Later she confessed that the same show came on another network earlier and she watched so she knew all the answers.
