Default Jeopardy - Feb 1

So completely by happenstance my wife and I are watching Jeopardy tonight - never before have we done such. list of topics are Football, movies etc all across. The 3 contestants answer all of the other questions with nobody going to football until there's nothing left.
The questions are simple - Tom Landry lead what team to victory with the shotgun offense..a punt catcher make a signal to catch a ball without being tackled is called what...when penalties affect the offense and defense equally and no one is really penalized... etc. AND NO ONE has any answer for ANY question. NOBODY even tries for all 5 or so questions. We are rolling on the floor laughing as the 3 contestants had no clue as to football at all- not even trying. the MC - Alex Trebeck?- could not believe it - just incredulous!
laughing so hard we're both tearing up!
What a hoot!

Haven't seen today's episode yet, but that's not terribly uncommon. Most players don't do that well with sports and pop culture, but the few that know them can really pad their scores.

They had a question a few nights ago about the Hampton County Watermelon Festival. I thought that was kind of cool.

It's forgivable. I mean it's not like many folks even know where Hampton is.

Holy crap! Just watched the clip... Clueless is as clueless does, Mr Trebek.

He gave the panel a righteous amount of Shiznit!

IMO, it shows that Jeopardy is not getting well rounded contestants.

Agreed. You could be a nerd who knows all this stuff and still be well rounded enough to enjoy sports, movies, theater, or other activities. Make being smart be a cool thing.

The Grand Poobah of where I work asked me how my holiday went the Tuesday following this year's Carolina-Clemson FB game.

I told her I just chilled and watched the game.

She asked me, "What game?"

Apparently everyone else in the state knew about the game but her. Not making this up.

I don't understand how you can grow up a "normal" guy - what that means and not have some basic knowledge about most things - be it how to sew on a button, balance a bank account or know what a fair catch is.
