  • Another " Jeopardy ! " Flop

    On tonight's show, the answer was,

    " Middle distance race that is the last event in the Decathlon."

    Nothing but blank stares and no response from all 3 contestants.

      One of them did respond "10K", but the term "middle distance" isn't going to mean anything to most contestants.

      Not surprising. I coached in college track for 22 years and 3/4 of the high school track coaches I talked with (hundreds) couldn't have told you the 1500m was even in the decathlon.

        Might be interesting to run 10,000 as the final event of the decathlon. I didn't say it was a good idea, just might be interesting.

          Likewise, one could decide a Jeopardy contest not by the Final Jeopardy question, but by a 60m dash.

            I wonder if they'd accept it.

                  That's true, in the same sense that the Battle of Guadalcanal was interesting.
