With the Tremendous Bowl proper across the nook, Thursday night time’s episode of “Jeopardy!” tried to deliver some soccer data to the display screen. Nonetheless, a lot to the shock of host Alex Trebek, not one of the contestants had been having it.
The trio saved the “Soccer” class till there was actually nothing else left on the board. Sadly, not a single particular person was in a position to even buzz in with an informed guess for any of the 5 questions. The in any other case sensible contestants had been apparently unaware of what an possibility play is, whom Tom Landry coached, what a good catch is, what offsetting penalties are or which line of defense took the Minnesota Vikings to 4 Tremendous Bowls.
Whereas the viewers bought a couple of laughs out of the deafening silence that adopted every query, host Trebek was the true star of the second.
“I can inform you guys are large soccer followers,” he stated after they drew a clean on the primary query. “Do you suppose we must always go to industrial?”
When all however the $1,000 query was left, the host couldn’t resist mocking the contestants just a little bit.
“Let’s take a look at the thousand greenback clue, only for the enjoyable of it,” he joked to laughs from each the contestants and crowd.
