The Cubs mascot stumped the contestants during Final Jeopardy on Thursday.
Clark the Cub has only been around for one season, but some of the contestants’ answers weren’t even in the same ballpark.
The clue was; “For the first time in almost 100 years, this pro team has an official mascot, a bear named Clark.”
The first contestant, Emily, said the Chicago Bears. Emily had the right city, but the incorrect sport.
The next contestant Andrew said The Portland Trailblazers, who were established in 1970.
The Portland Trailblazers mascot is also a cat named Blaze the Trail Cat.
Then Scott, the reigning champion, said The Boston Bruins. The Bruins were founded in 1924.
The Bruins mascot is a bear, but his name is Blades the Bear.
If Jeopardy wants to puzzle its contestants, give them sports-related questions.
