Oh no! Alex Trebek has been injured in his legs! From ABC News:

“Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek appeared on crutches today while hosting the National Geographic World Championship. The competition is taking place at Mountain View-based Google.

Trebek says he was chasing a burglar at his hotel in San Francisco at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday when his Achilles tendon suddenly snapped. Trebek says when he fell, he also injured his other leg.

Trebek reassured the audience that despite the incident, he is OK.

Uh, really, ABC News? Kind of just going to let the whole HE WAS CHASING A BURGLAR AT HIS HOTEL IN SAN FRANCISCO AT 2:30AM THING slide? Is that really the whole story? Because I’m not a News Scientist but I would argue that is far more interesting and raises far more questions than WHICH CORPORATE CAMPUS IS BEING USED FOR SOME SHOW. Oh well. Get well soon, vigilante justice enthusiast and Guardian of the Secrets, Alex Trebek. I made you a card. (Click through to enlarge.)

  1. I imagine there were some potent potables involved.

  2. I once dated a guy whose penis looked like that mic.

  3. I bet it wasn’t even a burglar and he’d just had enough of people calling his mother a whore all the time.

  4. I’ll let you take that if you can answer this one question, what is the Capital of Denmark?
    Um Reykjavík
    No, I’m sorry the answer was What Is Copenhagen

  5. This never would have happened if he hadn’t shaved his magic mustache.

  6. Er, is this like when Kevin Spacey was “mugged” in a London park at five in the morning? :/

  7. He went on to say this was the last time he would stay at the 6th Street Econo Lodge.

  8. Either Trebek is a badass or this whole story is Fake and Silverlake.

  9. 2:30 a.m. at a San Francisco Hotel? Was his leg hurt because of the wide stance he was using in the toilet stall when he heard the burglary?

  10. Breaking news! San Francisco Police have arrested a suspect in the Jeopardy robberies: already-convicted burglar O.J. Simpson, who allegedly robbed Trebek with the assumption that he could not be convicted of burglary twice, under the double jeopardy rule.

  11. They broke into his room? My god, I hope his mother wasn’t hurt.

    2) Trebek says he was chasing a burglar at his hotel in San Francisco at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday when his Achilles tendon suddenly snapped is Batman.

  13. you are WRONG, GABE! in your old age you can’t see the forest for the trees. Trebek was robbed while in town to go to the Google campus. eh?! EH?!?!

    this gives motive to someone who is both a competitor to Google and a noted villain on Jeopardy!

    mystery: SOLVED.
