it is kid’s week on jeopardy and some sharp mini-cookies were on TV last night competing for tens of thousands of dollars on the classic thinking man’s answer and question game show. (what the TV guide calls it).
after the first break, alex makes small talk with the contestants, and one of the boys told him he was going to get into falconry when he grew up. he was extremely serious and passionate about it, and mentioned by name a professional falconer that he had met when he was younger and how he was going to follow in his footsteps.
alex said, “well i don’t think there’s much of a market for falconry these days so you better have a back up plan” and walked back to his podium to start the game.
what an asshole. who squashes the dreams of a 10 year old boy on national TV?
