Dan Patrick to Host ‘Sports Jeopardy!’


Ever wish there was a game show that allowed you to show off your impressive knowledge? After what feels like an eternity of hoping for such a game show, sports fans everywhere can finally get excited as it looks like we’ll be getting our wish at long last.

Earlier today, Sony Pictures announced that they will be launching a sports version of Jeopardy!, aptly title Sports Jeopardy!, this upcoming Fall. The show will stream on the Sony app Crackle, and will be hosted by none other than former ESPN employee Dan Patrick.

Crackle general manager Eric Berger says the sports-themed game show will diversify programming on the service, best known for the Jerry Seinfeld comedy shorts series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

Crackle also will offer an app through which people can play along with the game on a second screen.

A sports-themed game show that includes an app that let’s us play along? This could be pure gold. Where do I sign up?
