Alex Trebek passed away this weekend after nearly a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Trebek, a first-ballot inductee to the Mount Rushmore of gameshow hosts, was the face of Jeopard for nearly four decades. Trebek was a sports fan who most recently announced the Ottawa Senators pick at the NHL Draft in October.

Here is a classic clip from 2018 when Trebek gave a series of football answers to contestants who had no clue about the game.

NFL Films even released a tribute of Trebek today, that included a look back at the infamous clip.

Turns out Trebek, Canadian, was as American as football.
