This Jeopardy show contest got a question that asked him who the NHL player was that recorded 100+ assists in a season 11 times. The average, everyday sports fan would’ve probably Wayne Gretzky by default, since he’s clearly the greatest hockey player of all-time, but instead, this guy answered “Magic Johnson”.
Just in case you weren’t aware, he’s the ex-Laker point guard who won a National Championship with Michigan State. Not the “Great One” who won the Cup with the Oilers.

Joe’s face was priceless after he realizes the mistake. Alex Trebek sounded shocked. Joe had the last laugh, though. He...

The famous game show Jeopardy is a place for people to show off their intelligence to a large television audience and win some cash, but as we’ve seen many times, it also can provide some embarrassing moments.

Instead of giving the obvious answer of Wayne...
Why is it that the producers of “Jeopardy!” expect the contestants to have an extensive knowledge of sports? When we’re all glued to the TV watching Paul George dunk on LeBron James while mic’d up, future Jeopardy contestants are home studying, reading and getting smarter.

The answer: “100+ assists in an NHL season has been accomplished only 13 times, 11 times by this player.” The question, of course, is “Who is Wayne Gretzky?” Hell, even if you didn’t know that, and you’re one of three Jeopardy! contestants with the chance to ring in, just click your damn button and say, “Who is Wayne Gretzky?” because guessing the Great One on any...
Listen up, if you ever happen to be on Jeopardy! and an NHL question comes up, just go with Wayne Gretzky as your answer even if you have no clue, because 9 times out of 10 you’ll be dead on the money.
