    Oh now you're throwing down. Jeopardy is basically my religion! (No seriously, I really do take Jeopardy more seriously than I do spirituality...)

    Anyway, I do agree about your Zendaya example (I feel about Dancing with the Stars how you feel about Jeopardy), but even football players have to be quick on their feet and I think it was Rosy Grier that took ballet to help him play, or maybe it was glee club or embroidery...I haven't seen that episode of The Brady Bunch in a while. But regardless, I hate the whole, "Yeah, I danced before, but it wasn't the jitterbug!" Like somehow your dancing background isn't going to give you a leg up, as it were, on learning new dances. Whatever. It's like being a Cordon Bleu-trained chef learning to make traditional sushi the first time...maybe out of your element, but not completely foreign.

    Alex Trebek Says Tumors are Shrinking
    It's been less than three months sine Jeopardy host Alex Trebek announced he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, but he now says his chemotherapy is working.

    Speaking exclusively to People Magazine, Trebek said that doctors told him some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.

    "It's kind of mind-boggling," Trebek told the magazine. "The doctors said they hadn't seen this kind of positive result in their memory."

    Doctors also said that he's near remission, according to Trebek, despite the cancer having only a 9 percent survival rate.

    In an interview a few weeks after the announcement, Trebek said he was feeling good in a video on the last day of taping for Jeopardy's 35th season.

    "I wanted once again to thank you for your continuing messages of encouragement and support," Trebek said at the time. "Particularly the many cards I've received from young people. I'm touched beyond words."
