Alex Trebek was the king of 7:30pm TV across the country. Hosting Jeopardy for decades, he was cool, calm, collected, and able to correctly pronounce anything, even using the right accent.

He made it look like he never made a mistake, but he did. Just like me in the radio world, from time to time he would have to record promos. Short ads to promote a contest or event. And just like me, when you screw it up, you unleash a torrent of salty language, usually at yourself or whoever wrote the script.

There have been a lot of great tributes to Alex over the past week, but I think this shows his, human side. And it's most definitely, NSFW.
