Crying Michael Jordan meme included as answer on 'Jeopardy!'

NBA, Charlotte Hornets

One of the sports world's favorite Internet memes has been immortalized after the game show "Jeopardy!" included it as an answer.

The Crying Jordan meme was the subject of a $400 question in the Jeopardy round on Wednesday as part of a category titled Fond Meme-ories.

Contestant Justin Torello wasted no time giving the correct answer to the question, which referenced the reason why Michael Jordan was shedding his now-infamous tears.

Although Torello picked up the cash with his answer, there would be no title; he finished as the runner-up to defending champion Betsy Knudson.

The meme will now truly live on forever -- as if it hadn't already.
