Jeopardy Meltdown

JEOPARDY MELTDOWN….Tonight’s Final Jeopardy was the worst Jeopardy performance I’ve ever seen. The question answer was to name a state, now the fourth largest, that was primarily formed from land that was part of the Louisiana Purchase. The three contestants guessed Florida, Mississippi, and Nevada.

Not a single one of these states was part of the Louisiana Purchase, and in size they rank 22nd, 32nd, and 7th.

What a disgrace. I blame George Bush.
