Oh no! Alex Trebek has been injured in his legs! From ABC News:

“Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek appeared on crutches today while hosting the National Geographic World Championship. The competition is taking place at Mountain View-based Google.

Trebek says he was chasing a burglar at his hotel in San Francisco at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday when his Achilles tendon suddenly snapped. Trebek says when he fell, he also injured his other leg.

Trebek reassured the audience that despite the incident, he is OK.

Uh, really, ABC News? Kind of just going to let the whole HE WAS CHASING A BURGLAR AT HIS HOTEL IN SAN FRANCISCO AT 2:30AM THING slide? Is that really the whole story? Because I’m not a News Scientist but I would argue that is far more interesting and raises far more questions than WHICH CORPORATE CAMPUS IS BEING USED FOR SOME SHOW. Oh well. Get well soon, vigilante justice enthusiast and Guardian of the Secrets, Alex Trebek. I made you a card. (Click through to enlarge.)
