My imaginary dream Jeopardy! show appearance πŸ˜‰

(Tribute to Alex Trebek below in the form of an imaginary appearance by me in Jeopardy! trivia game show)

Alex: Last clue of Double Jeopardy! round and…’s a Daily Double! in the category “Game show champions”. Raj, you buzzed first! How much of the $45542 that you have earned you want to wager?
Raj: I have always dreamed of saying this: Let’s make it a true Daily Double, Alex!
Alex: Wow, that’s a brave bet. Fortune favors the brave. Good luck! The clue is : “These are the winningest champions in Jeopardy!”
Raj: Who are Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter?
Alex: You got that right! You double your score to 91,084. Way to go! Incidentally 9/10/84 is the date I started hosting this show in its current format!
Raj: That’s cool! 😎

Final Jeopardy! round coming up after a break. The category is “Game show hosts”.

Funny Geico ad plays during the break. πŸ˜‚

Alex: We could potentially have a winner with over $100,000 today. The clue is “This Canada born game show host has hosted more than 8,000 episodes of a show, spread over 36 years”
First 2 contestants give correct answer and their final score is < $25,000 each.
Alex: Raj had the most money to wager. Let’s see his response and how much he wagered
Raj: “Who is Alex Trebek? (You are the best! πŸ™)”. Wager is $11,620!
Alex: That’s the right response and I see the amount you wagered is today’s date (11/6/20). Nice! The final winning amount is $102,704! Congratulations, Raj! That was a great game. So long, folks, hope you join us next time!

P.S. I guess some dreams are meant to remain unfulfilled 😭
But it was fun as long as the dream lasted πŸ‘

RIP Jerry Stiller πŸ™

Absolutely used to love and hate Frank Costanza on ‘Seinfeld’ – loud, foul-mouthed, always complaining curmudgeon dad of George Costanza played by recently departed great actor Jerry Stiller. Sign of a great acting if you can say “What a dickhead” and let out a loud guffaw at the same time πŸ˜‚
Apparently a very nice person too based on what his co-actors and those who interacted with him have said πŸ‘
RIP Jerry Stiller πŸ™

P.S. Got to youtube and watch the “touching” scene below described in the article:

When George Steinbrenner pays Frank and Estelle Costanza a visit to tell them that he fears their son is dead, Frank is distracted by a bigger, well, grievance. β€œWhat the hell did you trade Jay Buhner for?!” he yells at the Yankees owner.

In the midst of very personal grief after hearing about loss of his son, being a devoted sports fan, he still manages to give a piece of his mind to Mr. Steinbrenner 🀣
