It’s always astonishing to most sports fans to hear that some people don’t watch the Super Bowl, but they do exist. It turns out that three of them appeared on Jeopardy! tonight and simultaneously drew blanks when the category ‘Talkin’ Football’ came up.
The trio of likely nerds were collectively shutout on head-scratchers like which team Tom Landry coached, or what action indicates a fair catch.
On the final question, Trebek cracked that he would die if anyone knew the nickname of the famous Vikings defense of the 70’s. They didn’t. These people look like most of us would if we stumbled across a 19th Century English Literature category.
Maybe they’ll tune into the big game to see if either team can hit a home run.
