It turns out Jeopardy host Alex Trebek isn't the biggest fan of the Phanatic

Jeopardy has been home to some great moments regarding Philadelphia sports in the past.

 I wish this was another one of these moments ... but it's not.

 It turns out, the show's host host Alex Trebek isn't a big fan of the Phillie Phanatic ... I know, I'm hurt too.


 The Phillies are in disbelief, we all are.
 
 Of course, fans had quite the reaction to the video that surfaced on social media. After all, the Phanatic is the best mascot in all of sports (totally unbiased, of course).




 

I don't even want to know what he thinks about Gritty.

What is ... the most important score in Eagles history? Philadelphian Adam Clark's wager Thursday night on Jeopardy looked very familiar

What is ... the most important score in Eagles history? Philadelphian Adam Clark's wager Thursday night on Jeopardy looked very familiar

41-33.

A set of numbers that will live in the hearts of Philadelphians for the rest of time. When one hears it, they instantly think of the first time the Eagles claimed the Lombardi, the night Tom Brady dropped it, the most historic moment in Philadelphia history since the Declaration of Independence was signed ... I could go on, but you know where this is going. It is the score of Super Bowl LII.

Plain and simple — the number is special.

That was just the case for Adam Clark, a Philadelphian who appeared on Jeopardy Thursday night.

When it was time to set one of his wagers, he replied with those famous numbers.  

Since it was a rather unusual number, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek asked the significance of the number. Clark excitedly replied, "It's the Eagles Super Bowl victory score."

While he didn't answer the question correctly and lost the money, he certainly won the hearts of Eagles fans everywhere.

Eagles, the clear champion of champions, featured on Jeopardy

Does it ever get old, Eagles fans?

You know, being reminded that your team won the Super Bowl?

It sure doesn't.

For some fans, maybe it's still sinking in — but these daily reminders must feel good.

There were a few more Monday. First, this question popped up on "Jeopardy."

Pretty sure every Eagles fan has the answer for that one. This also comes after the Eagles were featured on "Wheel of Fortune" in March.

And the Birds are obviously on top of the entire sports world, as well.

They were declared victorious — and dominated — in this NBC Sports Northwest poll.

The results were possibly skewed just slightly because of this, but the fans have spoken.

Eagles owner Jeff Lurie said it quite well right here in March:

"The incredible nature of being able to see Eagles fans fulfilling their championship dreams is indescribable. And it wasn’t just the parade, it wasn’t just on the field with the confetti, it’s every day since. And the stories, I can’t tell you how many times people come up to me, wherever it is, there’s always Eagles fans everywhere, and they may just see you and start crying. They may see you and start hyperventilating.

"The stories they have with their mothers, their fathers, who they got to experience it with. I don’t know if you could explain it to fans everywhere in the country, but those of us who know the passion and the love for this football team and how much they’ve wanted the Eagles to win a Super Bowl, it’s like it gets played out every day in a real emotional, real personal way. I always say we’ve got the best sports fans in America, if not the world. But the personal stories are what drives it to be so special."
