What is “he tore his Achilles tendon chasing a burglar?”
That question would be correct if the answer was: The reason Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was walking with crutches. The 71-year old Canadian was a host of the National Geographic World Championship at Google’s California headquarters yesterday. Earlier that morning, he injured his leg while chasing a burglar down the hallway of his San Francisco hotel. According to Trabek:
“My Achilles tendon ruptured and I then fell on carpet, bruising the other leg in process. Surgery on Friday.”
A 56- year old woman, Lucinda Moyers, has been booked on felony burglary and possession of stolen property charges. Allegedly, she took cash and a bracelet Trebek’s mother had given him.
In homage to Mr. Trebek, I’m writing the rest of this blog in “Jeopardy! style”. Play along with me… and Remember- Your answer must be in the form of a question.
Alex, I’ll take Epic Body Parts for 100.
It’s time for Final Jeopardy!– Today’s topic is: Doctor, Doctor, Give me the News
AND, the Final Jeopardy! question is: What are some advantages of surgical over non-surgical treatment of a torn AT?
