No, no, no: don’t worry your trivia-addled brains just yet. But, yes, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was admitted to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles late Saturday where it was determined that he did, in fact, suffer a mild heart attack. For those of you who are keeping track, this is the 71 year old host’s second heart attack. He suffered a heart attack nearly five years ago in December 2007. We wish him a full and speedy recovery.
