This game is a draw for the Intermediate Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob
$13,000 out of $13,000 is big in my book.
Not a Shore's Conjecture game, either, unless I'm misreading the flowchart (EJ didn't have Debbie locked out).

I assume they were going for stegosaurus instead of ankylosaurus, hence the pause and "we'll accept that"?

No guess (was trying to thing of a real-world group, and probably wouldn't have guessed Munchkins spotted Wizard of Oz); Madonna (low confidence)

If I've eaten at a Howard Johnson's, I have no memory of it.

I can't say I really had an approach Friday. Bern popped into my head immediately, and from there it was just a matter of checking if it worked (add LI to make Berlin, Switzerland and Germany share a border, done).

42-45 (I'll say 44) right. The questionable ones are Ulysses Grant: The mention of Hamilton threw me so bad I couldn't make heads or tails of the clue. I said the correct answer just before time ran out, but wouldn't have had time to even type "Grant" in the box. Chrissy Teigen: I spelled it Teigan....

David Mamet (desperation guess); no guess Wednesday/Friday.

Have neither read nor seen The Natural.
Albany first.
Not only was Friday a no-guess, I still had no clue after some research trying to figure it out.
