Okay, Go Stand Behind THAT Lecturn --- Day 9/266

Walk: Presidio Pickleball

Distance: 3 miles, 45 minutes pickle before a little rain 😀

Can you imagine hosting the very first Jeopardy show since the death of its host?  That is, it's utterly beloved, consummately professional host for 37 years, Alex Trebek.  

Ken Jennings, the man who did just that last night, can hardly imagine himself.  In his words, the experience was "surreal," "intense," "unimaginable," "nerve wracking" and more.*

But, very personable and professional himself, Jennings did an excellent job, beginning with a warm tribute to Alex that reportedly brought many viewers to tears. He also brought a calming sense of continuity to the discontinuity because he is the Jeopardy GOAT, has made many and extended appearances on the show, won a bundle and was known to admire and care deeply for Alex.  In turn, Alex was visibly fond of Ken and all the Jennings brought to Jeopardy.

So, onward..
