Each one of us is blessed with special talents, but can’t be a mastermind on every subject.  That’s why mastering the game of Jeopardy! is so difficult – and yes, this often leads to a Jeopardy fail.  

Contestants on “Jeopardy!” are smarter than most of us, or at least book worms and random fact hoarders.  That, and they are often not sports fans, especially the women.

Sorry, ladies.

I smell a Jeopardy fail.

Earlier this week, Alex Trebek couldn’t help but chuckle after three female contestants bombed on a fairly easy sports question regarding the history of baseball and Roger Clemens.

To their credit, the women were each able to answer with an actual baseball player – and one actually tossed out a former starting pitcher for the Boston Red Sox in Curt Schilling.

At least she was in the ballpark.

Yes, pun intended.

So yeah, perhaps it’s just 2 1/2 wives that hate sports, in this instance.  That would be an above average day on the diamond.

Oh, just watch the video, hear their answers and laugh at their expense. 

You know you want to.
