Over the weekend, I had the HUGE honor of seeing the one and only Alex Trebek hand out some Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards, albeit via satellite feed. He even used a Daily Double to give out two awards in a tie!
Watching the Canadian-native-living-the-American-dream-game-show-host reminded me of some of my favorite recurring categories on Jeopardy.
Sure, I love Potent Potables. Same with Potpourri and S-Words.
However, my all-time favorite category has to be Quotable Quotes. After all, part of a good PR person’s job is helping clients develop great, non-canned quotes for speeches, brochures, websites and news releases.
So, today’s blog is in honor of all of the best quotable quotes out there! But, since I am showing you mine, you have to show me yours. Comment with your favorites, please
