Jeopardy takes shot at Barry Bonds with asterisk (Video)
That damn “Jeopardy!” just thinks it’s so freakin’ funny sometimes, right? The nearly 50-year-old game show has taken its fair share of swipes at athletes and sports teams over the years, and the producers were at it again on Wednesday night. Barry Bonds was the latest victim.
One of the answers given on the show read “he fathered baseball * Barry Bonds.” The question, of course, was Bobby Bonds. Here is how Alex Trebek read the answer.
“He fathered baseball star Barry Bonds.”
Those of us who are familiar with baseball’s steroid era and Barry Bonds’ career know that an asterisk is hardly a star. Well played.
Last month, “Jeopardy!” took a shot at the Houston Astros and their horrendous 2013 season. Watch out, Johnny Manziel — you’re next.
