Isn’t it nice when things work out?

More or less.

One of my appointment podcasts is Extra Hot Great, a smart, funny, and occasionally vulgar program on pop culture.

One of my appointment TV shows is Jeopardy.

Last night, Mark Blankenship, one of the regular panelists on EHG, was a contestant on Jeopardy.

It’s like getting peanut butter on your chocolate.

Blankenship did very well, holding the lead going into “Final Jeopardy” with over $10,000. Unfortunately, he gave a wrong response to a very difficult question about landmarks and ended up in third place when he bet too much. That’s okay, dude. Go big or go home.

So where’s the baseball in all this, you ask?

Blankenship uncovered this question:

The obscured word, if memory serves, is “categories.”

Blankenship correctly replied, “What is The Pride of the Yankees.” Good thing, too. I can only imagine the grief he would have received from EHG co-panelists Sarah D. Bunting, a hardcore baseball fan.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
