Jesus, the Phillies can’t even score with the Asians on Jeopardy.

A nice find here by Phillies beat writer Ryan Lawrence, who discovered his inner blogger when he grabbed this video from tonight’s show. 

When one contestant selected Potent Potables I’m Gonna Hurl for $400, he was greeted by the following answer:

In 2010 Roy Halladay of this team threw 2 no-hitters– one in the regular season & one in the postseason.


The question, of course, is Who are the Phillies?

Contestant Bing responded: Who are the Tigers?

Boooooong. I’m sorry, Bing. But that is incorrect.

It just goes to show you that all the book smarts in the world are not enough to make you aware of the best pitcher on the planet. 

Video after the jump.

    Bing always gives you the wrong results.

  • Billbo Bandwagons April 10, 2012 at 9:08 am

    Can’t believe he didn’t know it was the PHILLIES. I mean WE did win the World Series in 08! Get a clue, world.

    Book smarts will get you a lot further in life than knowing the name of a pitcher.

  • Boba Fett April 14, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Really? book smarts will get you further? Funny, because I know a lot of book smarts, but I know more COMMON KNOWLEDGE than book smarts and I am doing just fine. GO SCREW!
