I don't know why Yahoo! Sports and CBS Sports both thought this "story" was worthy of an alert to my phone, but although it's not newsworthy, it is pretty funny.
None of these three contestants even wanted to try the "Football" category on Jeapardy! They only tackled it when there were no other categories left on the board. (And believe me, they wouldn't understand the pun I just made).
Alex Trebek, for his part, playfully mocked the three contestants for not knowing anything about the game. Watch the video and see how many of the five you get right. (I knew four of the answers).
For what it's worth, two of the three contestants were men. And I point that out only because of those women's football shirts that Target is selling that poke fun of women's supposed lack of football knowledge. One shirt says: "Let's Touchdown a Homerun." Wondering if the men in this round of Jeopardy! would get the joke?
