Finally, some good news. Monday, Aaron Rodgers announced on the Pat McAfee Show that he is scheduled to guest host an upcoming episode of Jeopardy!.

We knew Jeopardy! would pull in big-name stars to guest host, but the best football player alive? Didn’t see that coming.
Rodgers is a wizard on the field, and his personality is interesting. He’s smart, cool, and awkward. Jeopardy!‘s viewers will love him.
Just make sure you don’t enjoy the Rodgers episode too much. At some point, Jeopardy! will name the successor to the great Alex Trebek. Unfortunately, political hack George Stephanopoulos remains one of the reported options. The Los Angeles Times also named Katie Couric, Steve Kornacki, Mayim Bialik, and executive producer Mike Richards as possibilities.
While I’m actually very good at Jeopardy!, I’m even better at predictions. Here’s one: Aaron Rodgers will arrive on the Jeopardy! stage as a two-time Super Bowl champion.
