There are three rounds during each episode of "Jeopardy!": regular Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy! and Final Jeopardy!, in ascending order of difficulty and gravitas. Occasionally, "Jeopardy!" will feature baseball-themed clues during regular or Double Jeopardy!. But as anyone who watches the show regularly knows, being featured in a Final Jeopardy! clue is a distinct honor. 

Just take a look at this clue from the "Obituaries" category during Wednesday's Final:

The quoted obituary? The late Yogi Berra's, playing on one of his trademark Yogisms. 

After 30 seconds of pondering the Yankees catcher, two of three contestants correctly wrote down, "Who is Yogi Berra?" And now Yogi will live in quiz-show history forever.

Because sure, obituaries in The New York Times are nice, but there's no honor quite like getting your very own Final Jeopardy! clue.
