4 Comments on "Sports Jeopardy! Recap – October 5, 2016"

  1. Scoreboard suggestion from Matt Pahuski:
    Tom Brady was selected 199th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft.

    Scoreboard suggestion from Aria Gerson:
    The 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney had a record 199 nations compete.

  2. Congratulations to Earl, he was clearly the better player and is a deserving champion. In rehearsal, Earl nailed the buzzer timing immediately and was giving good answers, so it was evident that he had the stuff. And he showed it.

  3. In the 2000 season of Formula One, the Jordan 199 was replaced by the EJ10.

    • I’d forgotten about that one.

      Oh, the Jordan 199. When I was a much more naive F1 fan, I was sad when Frentzen’s car just decided to stop at the Nurburgring.

      Pretty obvious in hindsight that the electronics in that bucket were likely not within the confines of the rulebook, though.
