Anyone see the James the "Professional Sports Gambler" (his real occupation) on tonight's Jeopardy?
Jesus!! He destroyed the record of winnings in a single game.

Mixed feelings about this guy. Smug S.O.B. with an odd smile - or non-smile. Throws around money like its fake Monopoly $. BUT..yeah, he's smart. The two other contestants at the end looked dazed as if they were hit by a bus.

Trebek is now fighting pancreatic cancer...it's at stage 4...not good!

And if Sean Connery outlives Trebek...Oh God!

This is always a red flag for me.  People rarely even do a search before posting, but a thread from 2009? The weird people appear in mysterious ways.

Yeah, I used to hate Jeopardy when I was little because I thought it was boring and it made me feel stupid. Now I'm not that big of a fan either because I get really annoyed with the contestants!

Not yet, Wild. They dusted him off and wheeled him out for New Years.
 
I like Alex - he doesn't bother me. I like it when I get the Final Jeopardy. It makes me feel momentarily intelligent !LOL

or Howie Mandel...Dead

He doesn't bother me as much and since I saw old episodes of him (Alex Trebek) hosting Double Dare on Game Show Network, I've gotten more appreciative of him still sticking around as a game show host.

but man I'm LOLing at the hair he use to have way back then!LOL
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

    For your info, I like Alex Trebek but he's fun to pick on. As are you, MM.Clap
 
I am honored.  Embarrassed
 
Alex Trebek just borders on having a personality.  Wink
 
 
 
 
 
   I hope you know I was kidding; you're fun to post with, not pick on. as for Alex Trebek...I think what we're seeing is his replacement with a bio-engineered clone. They showed him 'supposedly" playing hockey (by himself, no less). It looked as though someone had given him a shove and that someone else was on the other side to catch him (hopefully).
 
 
I totally believe you were kidding.  That's why I put the bashful smile after saying I'm honored and not an angry one.  Of course you have to realize that I was also joking with you when I replied to your comment.
 
Like I was saying, I thought your comment was extremely peculiar, "someone should assassinate him", about a guy who barely has a personality.  LOL
 
 
Polarizing people usually bring that response, Bill Maher, Bill O'Reilly, Keith Obermann, Ann Coulter.....etc.  Alex Trebek?  LOL

Trebek rules.  If he were such an annoyance, then he would not have lasted all these years.  Now, don't get me started on Sajak.....

Also, they could save more time by not doing so many clues that consist of audio or video clips, unless they're Daily Doubles.
 
    The audio and video clues are annoying to the point of no return. It should ber titled "Jeopardy for Idiots".

'Jeopardy' is the intelligent drunk's favorite 5:30 P.M. show!!! During the 'Raleigh Days'; for ten years, a group of us kept "Pro Row" (our very own side of the bar/stools with names on each stool and each in an exact location); a bar that has gone by the wayside in Rocky Mount, N.C,) 100% occupied, all blurting out the answers, or arguing about the 'Final Jeopardy' answer before revealed...granted, there has been a long stint in Texas, and now the 'R&R Life on Wolf Island' since I've watched Alex on a regular basis, but heck - he's still my buddy.
