From Sportress of Blogitude:

During a radio interview this week, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers discussed a multitude of topics, including Green Bay’s disheartening loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday and the team’s short week of preparation heading into its divisional matchup with the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

But it wasn’t all football talk. Rodgers also addressed some more lighthearted fare, such as what makes him laugh.

His response wasn’t the standard fare: Jim Carrey movies, Nicholas Sparks books or the many things Wisconsinites make out of cheese. Nope, what Rodgers really finds hilarious is the smugness routinely displayed by Alex Trebek during Jeopardy! 

Via Sports Radio Interviews:

On what makes him laugh:

“The smugness of Alex Trebek when he corrects a contestant on Jeopardy. I just think it’s so incredible. It’s like, ‘Alex, really, you knew that one?’ I mean, he’s just so smug about it sometimes. I love ‘Celebrity Jeopardy.’ That’s another one of my favorite things. I mean, ‘SNL’ and ‘MADtv’ has been the source of a lot of laughter.”

Wait. MADtv? Is that show still on? No, it is not. According to Wikipedia, that show went the way of the Dodo bird in 2009.
