I’ll take anything but football for $400, Alex.
That was pretty much the theme on the most recent episode of Jeopardy!
With Super Bowl LII coming up this weekend, one of the categories on the topical quiz show was “Talkin’ Football.” As the episode wore on, all of the questions in the category remained unselected, until finally, they were the only one’s left.
The three contestants were clearly intelligent, but not one of them came close to answering any of the questions. Host Alex Trebek let them have it.
The first question, for $200: Your choice: Do or don't name this place in which the QB runs the ball & can choose to pitch it to another back.
For Cowboys fans, the most dumfounding moment came when Trebek asked, “Tom Landry perfected the shotgun formation with this team,” and was again met with silence.
“You think we should go to commercial,” Trebek asked?
Enjoy the video, where Trebek takes a internal satisfaction in lambasting his guests:
