Local sports fans who watched Thursday night’s episode of “Jeopardy!” probably felt wicked smaht during one category.
One of the categories during the second round of play was “Patriot Games” and featured clues focused on the hometown NFL team.
The evening’s contestants clearly weren’t comfortable with the category, only getting two clues right and leaving the $1,600 and $2,000 answers until the very end of the round.
The players also submitted several incorrect guesses. For the $800 clue (which you can read below), players guessed Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park, the home of the Chicago Cubs and former home of the Chicago White Sox, respectively.
“I don’t know why you guys were in Chicago,” host Alex Trebek joked with the contestants.
We’re betting many of you will be able to ace this category, so if you want to feel smarter than three “Jeopardy!” players, try guessing the five clues below before scrolling down farther.
