Jeopardy took a dumb cheap shot at Eagles fans

What’s your deal, Alex Trebek?

I guess the people who work at Jeopardy! aren’t big on Philly sports.

The popular game show took a total cheap shot at Eagles fans during an episode that aired on Friday night. One of the ‘answers’ (not the ‘questions’ - this is Jeopardy!, after all) read as follows:

“Doing this as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles will lose possession for your team & get you booed”

The correct response, of course, was ‘What is a fumble?’

But I guess I missed it when Eagles fans are the ONLY fans in the entire league to boo when a player fumbles. Because fumbling totally draws cheers in other NFL cities.

This obviously isn’t something to get super worked up about (too late for me, I guess), but come on! This is a total unnecessary cheap shot at Philly fans. It’s just more of the dumb bullshit narrative that Philly fans are the worst because they booed Santa Claus.

Sigh.
