Aaron Rodgers, athletes and teams remember ‘Jeopardy!’ host Alex Trebek


Alex Trebek, the longtime host of “Jeopardy!”, has died after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Trebek, who was 80, hosted the quintessential quiz show for 37 years and nearly 8,000 episodes, and won 35 Emmy Awards and a Peabody.

The Sudbury, Ontario, Canada native was also a sports fan. In October, Trebek even announced the Ottawa Senators’ first-round pick in this year’s NHL draft. Sports also played a big role last summer when sports bettor James Holzhauer won more than $2.4 million in 33 games.

Beyond that, the nightly ritual of the show and the sports trivia that was occasionally a part of the show made it a favorite with athletes and sports fans. Here are some of the reactions to Trebek’s death:
