In yesterdays Jeopardy episode #5887 for Tuesday, March 30th during Double Jeopardy contestants Manny, Stacy & Emily were presented with a category titled “Podcasts” in which the $1200 question was:
Score some points with this Chicago based podcast known for its humorous and smart talk about art and for being “Bad at” this
Sadly neither Manny, Stacy nor Emily could correctly guess “Sports” but it was worth it to hear Alex Trebek say with that part sad & lightly condecending tone “The correct answer is Sports, What is Bad at Sports. I am sorry, Emily it is your board please pick again.”
From everyone here at Bad at Sports we would love to thank Alex Trebek, the writting staff & crew that have continued to produce the last bastion of intelligent daytime television for the past 26 years. Being name dropped with the likes of Diggnation, The Podfather Adam Curry, Mugglecast , Brian Ibbott‘s Coverville & Leo Laporte‘s This Week in Tech is a great honor.
The timing couldn’t have been any better with the Bad at Sports gallery opening at Apex Art in NYC next week titled “Don’t Piss on Me and Tell Me It’s Raining”. This honor has really made our April 1st, 2010 a memorable day. You haven’t made it till you have been name dropped on Jeopardy & satirized on SNL (looking at you Bill Hader). One down, one to go.
This has nothing to do with Art in even the most remote way but I would be amiss to not post this since it is some of the best comedy for a while and doesn’t appear on TV, Cable or Cinema. No, it’s specifically made and shown on Funny or Die. I could say much more but it would only ruin the best casted skit almost ever.
This is quite possibly the first time you have every SNL Presidential DoppelgÃ¤nger on screen at the same time ever (just missing Rich Little) and showcases Will Ferrell, Chevy Chase, Jim Carrey, Fred Armisen, Darrell Hammond, Dan Aykroyd, Maya Rudolph, Dana Carvey & Directed by Ron Howard to promote the Consumer Financial Protection Agency that is under debate/creation right now. Here is a behind the scenes video of the shoot.
