SNL missed an opportunity to do a Heaven Celebrity Jeopardy. Have Sean Connery and Burt Reynolds and a third deceased celebrity give Tribek all kinds of shiat, all of them wearing halos and wings like the old timey representation of death/heaven. Sometime late in the skit have everything turn red and flamey and Connery laughs at Tribek and says welcome to hell!

In his passing, we celebrate Alex Trebek's life the way we would have had he lived to see this day.

Stumbled on a channel that seems to specialize in game shows from the '80s.  Kind of odd to watch Alex pre-Jeopardy!, but he has that same sense of humor and cadence in hosting.

when i was a contestant ~8 years ago my parents told me that in between filming sessions trebek was chatting with the audience and was going on about how much he was enjoying bill o'reilly's latest book. later in the day during another break he decided that the questions from the older folks in the audience (literally half of them had arrived on a nursing home field trip shuttle or something) were too annoying for him to continue answering and that he was really just looking forward to "getting home and sitting down with a nice glass of chardonnay and that book." he was cordial enough to me, but clearly was bored being there and was not super warm and chatty. still, RIP to an icon.

I was on in 2012 and had a tidy jewfro going. As he walked up to me for the photo during the first break, he sung out loud "here's a guy with the same hair I had in the 70s"! He was very sing-songy all day and seemed very cordial with everybody. I even gave him a wrong answer that tickled him enough to comment on it during the show.

Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 a little over a year ago.  Luckily, he's still with us.  He took Alex's passing hard and hasn't watched Jeopardy since.  I'm not going to tell him that Alex would've been 81 today.
