Now that Troy Tulowitzki is Canada-bound with the Toronto Blue Jays, this Jeopary question creates much awkwardness around the nation.


A Faux Pas is defined as “an embarrassing social mistake,” via Merriam Webster.

Most of us understand this meaning. Whether it’s congratulating an “un-pregnant” woman, not throwing the road team’s home run ball back to the field, or calling WFAN and thinking a player who’s already retired it still active, we’ve all been there.

Today, the hit TV game-show Jeopardy!, now shares our pain.

A question host Alex Trebek asked on Wednesday was one that contestants (in the know) could’ve easily blundered on.

The Jeopary! question was:

In 2015 shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hopes to help this team fulfill its mile high hopes.

Obviously, because Tulo was traded to the Blue Jays earlier in the week the question is now extinct. Regardless, the contestant answered “Colorado Rockies” properly (in the game’s view).

To the show’s backing, these episodes are taped long before they air, but still, for the Canaidan-native Trebek this must have created a few chuckles.
