It turns out Jeopardy host Alex Trebek isn't the biggest fan of the Phanatic

Jeopardy has been home to some great moments regarding Philadelphia sports in the past.

 I wish this was another one of these moments ... but it's not.

 It turns out, the show's host host Alex Trebek isn't a big fan of the Phillie Phanatic ... I know, I'm hurt too.


 The Phillies are in disbelief, we all are.
 
 Of course, fans had quite the reaction to the video that surfaced on social media. After all, the Phanatic is the best mascot in all of sports (totally unbiased, of course).




 

I don't even want to know what he thinks about Gritty.

Alex Trebek opens debate with Eagles trivia question

Alex Trebek has the Eagles on his mind.

Moderating the Pennsylvania Governor's Debate Monday night, Trebek opened with a question about the reigning Super Bowl champs.

"Please, sir," Trebek began, "tell me the name of the starting defensive lineman for the Eagles who has won two consecutive Super Bowls, each one with a different team?"

Gov. Tom Wolf did not appear to know the answer, bowing his head and laughing before Trebek moved on.

The answer should be pretty obvious.

The Birds have really taken over the world. If only we could have gotten one of Trebek's patented over-enunciations of Halapoulivaati Vaitai.
