Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

I really do appreciate all your kind thoughts.

Alex Trebek knows that this latest curveball is just part of the deal with this disease.  It's important to be relentlessly positive.  He's done well on chemo before and he'll do well again.

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

I am now five weeks into taking chemo infusions for pancreatic cancer, and I can offer this perspective: Alex Trebek is a remarkable incredible trooper for being able to continue to host Jeopardy to the high standard that he sets.  Chemo really does take it out of you.  I am on a two week cycle for ...

Re: I Have Something In Common With Alex Trebek

Update: my first chemo session is scheduled for August 12th. It will be a "aggressive" cocktail called folfirinox. A port will be installed into me. I will be taking in the cocktail every other Monday, and then the next Wednesday I head back for port maintenance. I don't have to stay in the hospital...

Re: I Have Something In Common With Alex Trebek

Here is what I learned from the pancreatic doctor today: there are three kinds of tumors: small, medium, and large. They only operate on small tumors. My tumor is currently medium. Therefore I will be going on chemotherapy for perhaps six months to shrink the tumor and its tentacles to an operable s...

I Have Something In Common With Alex Trebek

I've been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. My particular case is probably fairly survivable. I'll be having surgery hopefully soon. One thing I can say about the experience is that it's really painful, and it's been hard to get more than two hours of sleep a night. For Alex Trebek to go through it ...

Re: Tuesday, July 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, I was thinking El Dorado but my brain was already racing ahead to other fantasy lands and so I blurted out Shangri-la, which was an answer later on....and Jason rang in first for that one. Was kicking myself over that mistake....and for not betting it all when I hit the one daily double (with...

Re: Monday, July 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't understand James' FJ bet. Wouldn't $9,601 have been optimal? That's enough to take first place if Jason gets FJ wrong or bets $0, yet it is also enough to keep second place if Cristina gets FJ wrong. Assuming a sensible lockout wager from Jason (in the $8401-9599 range), James would have to...

Re: Monday, July 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game's FJ was a major trap for a younger player with a crush lead over an older player. Expo '67 was well known at the time but the reference window for it has long closed. Good knowledge on the champ's part to get it.

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought of Arlo but only in the context of wondering what they'd do with "Who is Guthrie?" I was hoping one of the three would try it so I could find out. I'm definitely on the side that says there's no way they should accept it, and I doubt they would. I also agree that a pre-FJ instruction woul...
