This “Jeopardy” sports fail needs to be seen to be believed. While on the well-known gameshow, contestants were given five basic questions about football — and they couldn’t answer a single one.
Some of the questions included “Your choice: Do or don’t name this play in which the QB runs the ball and can choose to pitch it to another back,” “Tom Landry perfected the shotgun formation with this team,” “By signaling for one of these, a returner can reel in a kick without fear of getting tackled” and “These ‘penalties’ are simultaneous violations by the offense and defense that cancel each other out.”
The poor contestants struggled to answer even a single question — but at least Trebek had a good time, jesting that they should look at the $1,000 clue “just for the fun of it.” Twitter also had a blast making fun of the situation.
@c_woodside tweeted, “Alex Trebek is one snarky betch and I love it.”
@JoeMcCann3 tweeted, “Nothing makes me feel smarter than going 5 for 5 on a Jeopardy! Sports category, especially while the contestants — all significantly smarter than I – get a collective 0.”
@reverandmalibu tweeted, “I love it when Jeopardy tries to owns the nerds and the smarts with sports.”
