Big Ten Bloggers Roundtable: now with 100% more Alex Trebek

This week's Big Ten Bloggers Roundtable comes courtesy of Beauford Bixel (please God let that be his real name and not a blogging pseudonym) from the sanctimonious blog The Only Game That Matters. Actually they aren't smug at all it's just really late and I felt like using a big word to make myself feel better. Anywho… in keeping with the long standing Big Ten Bloggers tradition of being totally insane and barely coherent, B-squared has given us the answers to this week's Roundtable and would like us to come up with the questions. If you haven't guessed by now B2 has some sort of unhealthy obsession with Jeopardy and ostensibly (ha, two big words in one paragraph I'm on fire) Alex Trebek (half naked no less). So let's launch this lead Zeppelin and watch the carnage.

fully clothed and Somewhat Crazed Alex Trebek: Welcome everyone to this week's version of the Big Ten Bloggers Roundtable I'm your host ALEX TREBEK.
