Wheel of Jeopardy

by Chris Sorrenti

Every week night
a well spent hour of cerebral calisthenics
intellectual fun

Pat Sajak   Vanna White   Alex Trebek
with a steadily changing roster
of guests in tow

All subtly remind me
despite my prowess with words and trivia
I still have a long ways to go

Oh my god, we rarely miss the program. And yes, it does give pause to think of how little we really know, even in our own field of education. Though don't have math questions on there very often! Nice write.

Started watching both more often when my mom would visit. Now we are hooked. Good mental exercise. Thanks, Chris.

Wonderful write, Chris. I used to watch Jeopardy many years ago and enjoyed it immensely when I did. One of the few shows that challenged the spirit to reminisce a world long since vanished.
