Jeopardy! Host, Alex Trebek, arrived on the podium for the National Geographic World Championship at Google’s Northern California Headquarter, limping!
Well, he said that he snapped his Achilles tendon, while chasing a burglar.
Achilles tendon can be super painful; the tendon can be ruptured by forced movement of the foot against the leg or a blunt force to the area around the tendon could cause it to tear. A ruptured tendon can prove to be excruciatingly painful.
Ouch! That must have hurt you real bad, Mr. Trebek.
Host cum crime-buster Alex Trebek was fast asleep (naked) in his hotel room in San Francisco, when at 2.30 a.m. he suddenly woke up, after hearing some noise and found a woman stealing his stuff!
He grabbed his underwear and ran after her in the hallway and in the process fell, snapping his Achilles tendon and bruising his other leg too.
Alex Trebek was actually in double jeopardy!
A 56-year old woman, identified as Lucinda Moyers, was immediately arrested from the crime scene on suspicion of burglary.
Alex’s arm bracelet, which his mother gave him 20 years ago, was missing from the scene. He reported that apart from the priceless bracelet, some cash was also missing.
According to the latest reports, the attorney of Lucinda Moyers claimed that his client was in the hotel as a prostitute and not a thief! The attorney further added that the police arrested the wrong person in the Alex Trebek burglary case.
Now, I have no idea how the prostitute episode suddenly came up!
But what I know is that you, Mr. Alex Trebek are a hero for me.
All hail Alex! Kudos to your steely determination – in spite of the injury, you hosted the show.
If you consider him a hero as well, then you should get a Jeopardy! download because that is where you can see him comfortably!
For you Alex, just for you, I am going to watch all the previous episodes of Jeopardy!
