    Default RIP Alex Trebek

    Jeopardy host Alex Trebek lost his battle with pancreatic cancer today. He was 80.

    I grew up watching him on Jeopardy. I always play along at home and sometimes I surprise myself with answers I thought was wrong.

    To honor Alex, Iím answering this in form of a question What is RIP Alex. Youíre in no more pain. He fought a good battle and never gave up.

    His last taped episode will be on aired on sometime in December. I think I read on Christmas.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    I love Jeopardy, grew up watching that show. So back when Alex revealed that he had cancer, I cried for a long time. So when I heard the news today, I had no tears left. At least he's not in pain anymore. R.I.P. Mr. Trebek. This year has just been too much.

    I've never been a big fan of game shows, but there is no doubt that Alex Trebek was an American institution. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and fans during this sad time.

    R.I.P. Alex Trebek
