"The Daly Double"
Hello, and welcome to Jeopardy, I'm your host Alex Trebek. This week on Jeopardy, we will be playing Celebrity Jeopardy with our contestants from the field of sports.
Let's meet today's celebrity sports contestants: Marion Jones from USA Track and Field, Roger Clemens from Major League Baseball and John Daly from the Professional Golf Association.
Let's start with Marion; you were America's darling at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, when you won five medals and were considered one of America's greatest female track and field athletes. Recently, you forfeited all your medals and prizes you won since September 1, 2000 by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
"Yes Alex, that's why I am on the show, I'm broke; I could use the cash."
Our next contestant is a seven-time Cy Young award winner, and called by ESPN as the greatest living pitcher, a man that recently has come under fire in the Mitchell report as a user of illegal performance enhancing drugs, Roger Clemens.
"Yes Alex, that's why I am on the show; to clear my name and all the great achievements I have accomplished in baseball."
Our final contestant is one of golf's longest hitters, a man that was declared "zero to hero" in 1991 after he won the PGA Championship; a man that has battled many addictions, please welcome "Long" John Daly.
