The craze may have tapered off a bit as of late, but it looks like the “Crying Jordan” meme got a pop culture boost thanks to its appearance this week on a “Jeopardy!” episode.
The widely popular meme that features an image of Michael Jordan weeping — culled originally from his speech at his Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2009 — was the question for $400 in the “Fond Meme-ories” category.
