On April 16, 1972, Burt Hooton did this for the 4th time in his career. Who were the Cubs playing that day?

It doesn't take us to do that. Does a reader make Die Hard incoherent? No, he just is.

 

By the way, I looked up the answer and I still think my answer is correct.

I had to read the question a couple times as well.  It doesn't matter what he did for the 4th time, all that matters is who the Cubs where playing on that date to answer the question.  Though I agree it be nice if the question included what he did for the 4th time.

I will have to re-read the fact tomorrow when I get back to the office.  I may have incorrectly translated The Calendar.

 

I know it involved a no-hitter and the Phillies.

Actually it reads as two separate questions. One in Jeopardy form and the other a "normal" question that uses the Jeopardy question. In which case, my original answer should be correct.
