Who could not answer a single question in the football category about a month or two back.
What do you expect ...

The show attracts these pencil neck geeks that have no interest in sports, and know nothing about it.
He humiliated himself?  
Beezer : 3/9/2018 9:09 am : link
Really?

lol

I think sometimes we (BBI, die-hard, invested sports fans in general) forget that a large portion of the human population on this planet does not care about sports, and knows next to zero about it. I cannot relate, but I know that's a fact.

At least he responded with a sports phrase. lol

I would have

accepted that answer
Bart Scott was on Jeopardy?

He should have stuck to the football category...

sounds like a bigger nerd, "fFor most of you out there, the "Grapefruit League" quickly came to your mind and you wished you were there to add the $ to your score:.

What percent of people in America even watch sports loosely, let alone baseball, let alone follow spring training?
I'd be willing to bet  
Beezer : 3/9/2018 10:11 am : link
that 75% of people who call themselves "baseball fans" of fans of a specific team just call it spring training and have no clue what you're talking about if you said Grapefruit League or Cactus League. They'd also probably misuse Bush League.

Probably > 75%.

So yeah. He humiliated himself. lol
Humiliates?  
Mad Mike : 3/9/2018 10:12 am : link
Not hardly.
I hate baseball

I don't freakin know...I follow football 24/7 and 365

​​Oh. My. Goodness. The Bush League? Bro, this was the best you could come up with? Ironically enough, your answer was bush league.


Whoever wrote this is a fucking tool.
Ha!

I actually was watching that happen yesterday over my mother-in-laws house! I even said 'Grapefruit' and when he said 'Bush' I thought to myself 'Well that was an interesting answer... '. LOL!

Cool story bro.
As far as him 'humiliating' himself...  
T-Bone : 3/9/2018 1:25 pm : link
if I recall he was KILLIN it on all the other categories and I'm pretty sure that was at least the second night he was on the show because I remember seeing him the night before as well (and he was killin it). Matter of fact, I'm a lil surprised he didn't get that answer right because he seemed to know every single tv series ever created by man. When it came to any question about tv shows he knew nearly every answer (at least while I was watching... wasn't like I was riveted to the tv as I was picking up my kids).

So although he may have embarrassed himself a lil with that answer I'm sure the hundreds of thousands of dollars he won will make him feel better.

LOL!
The vast majority of casual baseball fans  
AnnapolisMike : 3/9/2018 1:49 pm : link
would likely not know the answer to that question. He hardly embarrassed himself.
Funny, I was at a Cactus League game on....

Wednesday and my wife asked me the same question.
I knew it had to do with fruit, buut it took a few seconds to sort it through and get to Grapefruit.
