That day after Mark Blankenship got his baseball movie answer correct we witnessed this in the Double Jeopardy round:
In the category “Honest ‘ABE'”(the answer contained those three letters; covered words: “a research society.”) for $1600:
In the category “Minneapolis” (covered words: “grinding flour.”) for $2000:
- “What is sabermetrics”
- “What is grinders”
No one offered the correct question. Host Alex Trebeck acknowledged regarding the first clue, “Yeah it’s an unusual word.”
To some, perhaps.
