That might explain why there was a question "Near Detroit, Chatham in this Canadian province was a Northern terminus for the Railroad" on Friday's show ( https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x781mlq at 12m12s). I did some googling and it seems this was part of a slave route.Quote: rxwine
Quote: Trebek grew up in Sudbury, Ontario, and majored in philosophy at the University of Ottawa. He worked at the CBC and other broadcasting jobs, until NBC called in 1973 about a game show job, "The Wizard of Odds."
He has said he’d like to work in an MLB front office, and there’s baseball executives who have been quoted as saying they could see him there (Billy Beane for one.) I would guess he hangs up the sports betting and heads in that direction unless he’s not willing to accept the pay cut he’d likely have to take given that the stats/scouts/analyst guys, anyone but the top executives, are not paid that well by MLB teams.
Yeah, although that would seem to be a waste of both his talent and potential profits since his name would be valuable for branding. If, however, that's his dream job, more power to him although I'd wager he'd find the work to be boring unless he was the actual guy making trade decisions.
The branding thing, I guess that would depend on how much he would value wanting to stay in the spotlight. We’ll have to see how far he goes yet to know how large of a lasting impression he’s creating too still tough to say what the lasting value is. Not needing every dollar, my guess is he might prefer to fade into a little less attention, have a little more privacy. Who knows, interesting question, we shall see.
