The news of his passing hit the world hard, with countless fans sharing personal stories about watching the show.
Whether it takes you back to your childhood, reminds you of a special connection with somebody, inspired you to pursue a certain career path, or maybe you just like to sit in a shithole dive bar and watch it with the local town drunks at 3 in the afternoon like I do, for most of us, the name Alex Trebek instantly transports you back to a specific place in time. A fond memory.
Alex was one of a kind, irreplaceable in every way. And just when you think you couldn’t love him any more, you see his blooper reel.
