Rush reference on last night's episode of Jeopardy!
10:04AM EST | comments |

UPDATE - 5/6@9:28PM: Here's a video of the Rush reference segment that was uploaded to Facebook.

One of the answers in the We're a North American Band category on last night's episode of the American quiz show Jeopardy! made reference to Rush's Tom Sawyer:

This trio sang, "Today's Tom Sawyer he gets high on you, & the space he invades, he gets by on you"

The question was - of course - What is Rush?. There have been several Rush-related questions on the show in recent years. This is the first one of 2014, but there were three just last year; one back on July 16th, another back on April 8th used a Geddy Lee reference, and on March 1, 2013 a Neil Peart reference was used. Rush was also referenced on the show back in February of 2011. Thanks to Trip E for the heads up and Rosalio for the screenshot.
