I gotta admit – I love it when anything on television hits close to home. Maybe not so much the negative stuff, but you have to take the good with the bad.

This little ole city of ours has been mentioned a grand total of six times on “America’s Favorite Quiz Show.” I can see how people from outside of this area would struggle with some of the questions, but if you’re from here and over about the age of thirty, I’ll bet a dollar to a donut you know the answer to every one of these.

So, suck it Trebek.
