Earlier today everyone's favorite 72-year-old game show host was in the San Francisco Bay Area to host the National Geographic World Championship event at Google's headquarters. He immediately explained why he showed up to the event on crutches:
"I'm going to start today with an answer to a question that I suspect is on many of your minds right now. The answer is at 2:30 yesterday morning, chasing a burglar down the hall at my San Francisco hotel."
Woah, there's an image for you. Alex Trebek in complete jeopardy (had to say it), shifting it into total beast mode while running down the hallway of a hotel in his nightgown. He tore his Achilles tendon during the pursuit of the bandit, who ended up being apprehended and IDed as 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers. Both his cell phone and wallet were recovered, however, he told a local news station that "The one piece of jewelry that I ever wear... a bracelet my mother gave me many years ago" is gone. Sad. More details here. Bold and boss move, Trebek. Sean Connery would approve of your badassery, though he'd probably still have a few things to say about your mother and that bracelet...
