There are wrong answers, and then there's this.

When Alex Trebek gave the clue stating that this NHL player accomplished the amazing feat of tallying 100-plus assists in 11 seasons, viewers all over the nation were undoubtedly jumping out of their chairs screaming, "Wayne Gretzky!"

But not Joe. He was quick to reply, "Who is Magic Johnson?" Almost immediately, Trebek said a muted "oh no," echoing the screams of the Jeopardy! faithful. Joe's realization is priceless.

Swing and a miss.
