  1. You can see a gif of Alex doing a little soft-shoe (a previous time) at the bottom of this page: https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/behind-scenes/breaking-down-four-rare-jeopardy-scenarios
  2. I appreciate that Andy is a fan of Weird Al's "I Lost on Jeopardy!" (He said, "I wish I could quote Weird Al and take Potpourri for $100, but I'll take $200, please.")
  3. I like your theory and will have to start paying more attention!
  4. I think this has been happening all season, though I only noticed it after he passed. I went on Youtube to search for the show's opening/intro and found a video posted earlier in the season that had some old Alex footage in it. I'm sorry I don't have a link. Here are some symptoms of and risks for pancreatic cancer. I looked them up after Alex mentioned World Pancreatic Cancer Day. http://wpcd.worldpancreaticcancercoalition.org/world-pancreatic-cancer-day/risks-symptoms/
  5. It's interesting that the clue crew doesn't seem to be in the running, at least as far as what names are being mentioned. Obviously things could be different behind the scenes. I guess she's been off the show for some time, but I only noticed while looking at the website that Kelly is no longer part of the clue crew. She posted some memories of Alex on her instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kellymiyahara/
  6. Yes, sorry, I was focused on ultrasound+breast cancer. It does seem that ultrasound fits the clue if you're talking about screening for pregnancy abnormalities, though the word "regular" may be a(nother) problem. Bottom line: It was not a good clue!
  7. There are suggested bets and explanations on each game page at j-archive.com, under a link called "wagering suggestions for these scores." It's funny how people used to come up with negative nicknames for airlines. (Is this still a thing?) "Travel With Another" (TWA) and "Take a Chance Airlines" (TACA Airlines, now Avianca) are others I've heard. I agree that ultrasounds are diagnostic for breast cancer, but I am not a medical pro, nor do I play one on TV. If you get a screening mammogram that's basically, "Reply hazy, try again" (because you have dense breasts, for example), they may send you to get a diagnostic ultrasound. I knew the show was going for "jot," but "pen" would have worked as well.
  8. This seems more about Buzzy than Alex, so I'm posting it here. I was a ‘Jeopardy!’ champion. Alex Trebek’s voice helped me through depression. --Buzzy Cohen, Washington Post
  9. I'm surprised at my own shock at this news. And I am mad that this article is so wrong. It just completely ignores all the new shows he's done! I read the whole article and they don't mention it. Hopefully they'll correct it. It's silly to be upset about that, I suppose, but Jeopardy! fans like accuracy, and I think Alex himself would want the record straight. edit: The article now says "He continued to host new episodes of his show until production was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic, and then filmed socially distanced episodes that began airing Sept. 14."
  10. New season, new bump to the top to help you find FJ.

  12. Same here. I said, "leave those dividers up for the whole show!" during FJ. I'd feel better if the contestants were even farther apart, too.
