A few Jeopardy! contestants struggled with a New England Patriots category.

There are plenty of jokes to be made when a sports category appears on Jeopardy! The latest comedic moment came during a New England Patriots-themed category. One contestant knew who Bill Belichick was, which was a good start. The other two struggled with the geographic location of the team.

The contestants knew their Chicago baseball stadiums, past and present, but were at a loss when it came to placing Fenway Park in Boston. Why they focused in on Chicago remains a mystery.

This is not an extremely easy question for non-sports fans, but it has to boggle the minds of anyone who at least knows Fenway Park is in Boston. Not knowing that information must be so confusing to sports fans worldwide.

Moments like these are funny and remind fans that not everyone lives and dies with sports on a daily basis.

But not knowing the least bit about Fenway Park? That seems like some sort of crime no matter how little one watches sports.
