It was announced Sunday afternoon that legendary Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek passed away after a nearly two-year battle with stage four pancreatic cancer.
Trebek was a nightly presence in millions of homes across the country, and on rare occasions through the 8,275 total episodes of the show, the larger-than-life host would ask a question about our favorite football team.
