Who passed away today at age 80? May he rest in peace.

Jeopardy was my mother's favorite TV show. I knew I wasn't supposed to call her when it was on TV. She would talk to me, but I know she complained to me when my sister would call her during the show.

Was about too young for Jeopardy the first time around, so Trebek was Jeopardy to me.

Of course, I expect Connery greeted him with "Beat you again, Trebek."

Here's a guy who I watched 3-5 times per week since the 80s. He will be very missed.
