What Is Football?: Alex Trebek Mocks Jeopardy Contestants For Not Answering A Single Question In Football Category

February 2, 2018


This is a clip from last night's (February 1st's) episode of Jeopardy starring Alex Trebek mocking the three contestants for not being able to answer a single question in the 'Talkin' Football' category. Clearly, football is not their cup of tea. My cup of tea? Chamomile. "Smells like a mug full of tequila from here." What are you, a bloodhound? Sniff out my wallet.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to MSA, for running every single category last night.

  • What?! Nerds don't understand Football?! Go get 'em Ogre!

    Oh I just loved it when Ogre became a Nerd 🤓 classic Ogre.

    black sorcery is my dish of tea
    (cause i'm the magnificent marvelous mad mad mad madam mim)

  • Jenness

    I answered 3 out of 5. These are pretty basic. Didn't they have to have PE in school?

  • aldenscott

    The lucky people didn't, no.

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    I have never been more proud, our species is finally advancing.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    I was born in Green Bay and have lived in Wisconsin my whole life, so I've been subjected to more than a few football games in my day... that said, I had no idea what any of the correct "questions" were for that category.

  • Gnius

    Alex Trebek is awesome. He got kind of weird in those Celebrity Jeopardy shows on SNL though.

  • asdfadfs

    I'm onto you, spambot

  • GeneralDisorder

    Considering the decline in NFL viewing and the fact that Jeopardy is best played by people with common knowledge about a wide array of subjects... It's really not surprising that nobody got any of these.

  • aldenscott

    Some people don't give a fuck about watching people in tight pants chase after a ball and bang their heads together for 4 hours (or however long that crap usually ends up taking). Sorry, Alex.

  • Bling Nye

    You could say 'most' instead of 'some' ...

    XLIX Super Bowl (2014) was watched by a record 114.4 million viewers. The population of the USA in 2014 was 318.6 million people.

    35.9% of the population gave a fuck about the biggest event in the sport. That includes people just watching it for the social party and commercials.

  • Jenness

    That was back when football meant something. *crushes a beer can on her head, spikes the can and belches the national anthem* Oh and spiking means to throw down the ball (or in this case the can) in a celebratory manner with force.

  • GeneralDisorder

    The only reason I know what a "first down" is (and I only sort of know, I couldn't really explain it) is because my sister lived in my house for a little over a year and she's a fanatic about football. She watched every game which was annoying as fuck since nobody else in the house liked football.

    Aliens, feel free to invade at any time.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Alex is pretty fucking smug for a dude with all the answers written out for him. I'd like to know how many of those he could have answered without his little cheat sheet.


  • Jason Christopher

    ...and now these contestants know how I feel when I'm watching from home and they run the "Left Handed Basket Weavers of the Ming Dynasty" category.

  • Munihausen

    "What is, our generally-failing public educational system?"

  • Jason Christopher

    I'm pretty decent at Jeopardy, but I'd still flunk out of "Left Handed Basket Weavers of the Ming Dynasty".
