Ugh, I feel bad for this guy…. On New Years Day, Jeopardy contestant Nick was on a roll, leading the pack with more than $11,000 when disaster struck… He mispronounced the Coolio hit, “Gangsta’s Paradise” saying instead “Gangster’s Paradise”

Before you get all up in arms, Jeopardy officials backed up their decision with a pretty concrete reasoning: “gangsta” and “gangster” are listed separately in the Oxford English Dictionary, each with its own unique definition.” Nick changed not only the song’s title, but also its meaning – making his response unacceptable.”
What’d you think of their decision?
