See what Andrew Salciunas found in the Audio Vault today. For today’s vault, he gathered some of the best Jeopardy! fails when it comes to sports questions.
Jeopardy! is a great show. It is not quite the same without Alex Trebek, but even still it is the goat of Game Shows. And one thing that is consistent with Jeopardy, is contestants not knowing the answer to sports questions. Some of the smartest people out there will compete on Jeopardy. They can answer tough questions about 16th-century literature, obscure science topics, and tough history questions. But ask them what offsides is in Football, and they will crumble. It makes for great TV, and there was a recent example of just that where contestants could not answer what sport certain terms came from.
And after watching that, Andrew decided to gather up that, and some other legendary sports fails, and even some successes, to play in the Audio Vault today. From people thinking Magic Johnson played Hockey, to people being left speechless when asked what a forward pass is, to a group of 3 very smart people not knowing a pick-off play is a Baseball term.
There is something satisfying about seeing intelligent people out of their element. Which is why today’s Audio vault was dedicated to just that. Join Anthony And Andrew as they listen to some of the best Sports Fails from Jeopardy’s history.
