Well, this is all sorts of awesome.

On a recent episode of "Jeopardy!", an answer made reference to the medial collateral ligament, or MCL, which New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski injured earlier this season.

Seems pretty normal, right?

"Jeopardy!" often uses sports-themed answers to stump contestants. But what made this one so great was that the answer even referenced Hynoski's cult nickname, "The Hynoceros."

This isn't exactly an answer regarding Calvin Johnson, aka Megatron. This is Henry Hynoski, a fullback, we're talking about here.

Hynoski has scored just one career touchdown, but the celebration was worth the wait.

Hynoski's response?
