RuneScape on Jeopardy!

What is…. AWESOME.

This and the Channing Tatum email have made my week a little brighter.

Alex Trebek refused to give in to the demands of a whiny stage mom — warning Sony he would end his 30-year run as “Jeopardy” host if they had a problem with it, hacked emails revealed Tuesday.

The “Jeopardy! Kids” contestant’s helicopter mother had blown a gasket because the beloved game show icon didn’t move a muscle as her “visibly upset” daughter stormed offstage when she was eliminated prior to the Final Jeopardy round, according to messages leaked by the Guardians of Peace hacker group.

An exchange between Trebek and Sony producers in which the longtime host passionately defends his actions was uncovered by RadarOnline.com.

“If I’m making mistakes and saying things you don’t like, maybe it’s time for me to move on,” Trebek wrote to producers. “It’s not a threat, but I want to let you know how I’m feeling.”

The game show icon warned Sony he would call it quits because producers had asked him to re-tape the emotional segment. (source)
