Rush reference on tonight's episode of Jeopardy!
8:45PM EST | comments (8) |

One of the answers in the Also a 4-Letter Band category on tonight's episode of the American quiz show Jeopardy! made reference to Rush:

An attempt to gain ground by an NFL running back

The question of course was - What is a Rush?. This is the 3rd Rush-related answer to appear on the show this year. Back on April 8th the show used a Geddy Lee reference, and back on March 1st a Neil Peart reference was used. Rush was also referenced on the show back in February of 2011. Thanks to CheeseCorn for the heads up and Tim B for the screenshot.

Plus he answered the question so fast I almost missed it as I was trying to think of a possible question to the answer myself :)

I am curious what the other Answers/Questions were in this category...and did the contestant answer the Rush one correctly?

Oh, I just re-read the blurb and saw the category name. Ignore my last comment.

That doesn't count as a Rush reference. Sure, it's the same word, but it wasn't a reference to the band.

No Alex reference? Typical.
