Jeopardy host Alex Trebek arrived at the National Geographic World Championship, which he was hosting, on crutches today. Apparently he fell while “chasing a burglar” at 2:30 am at his San Francisco hotel and snapped his Achilles tendon. Hm. I’ll take improbable explanations for $800. Also, what is: ouch.
Trebek and his wife stayed at the downtown Marriott in San Francisco, and that’s where the burglar struck at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday as the couple slept. Trebek says he was awakened by an intruder in the room. Police say she was Lucinda Moyers, a 56-year-old burglar with a long rap sheet.

Wishing to speedy recovery for the 72-year old game show host (72? Yeah, I know, I wouldn’t have believe it either but I checked)
