2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Tournament of Champions, Day 3

Post by DadofTwins »

Posting these now. I'll score Day 2 later tonight after work.

This is probably the easiest set of the week, so either I'm sorry or you're welcome, depending.

MOUNTAIN NAMESAKES

2: The Royal Geographic Society ultimately decided not to name this mountain on the Pakistan-China border after Henry Godwin-Austen, leaving its alphanumeric name in place.

4: The Bogong High Plains in the Great Dividing Range are part of the Alps named for her.

6: The highest peaks in New Hampshire's White Mountains are in this range, with summits also named for Abigail Adams, Daniel Webster, and Henry Clay.

8: The highest mountain in any tropical zone on earth, Mount Huascaran was named for an emperor of these people.

10: (You could probably name them all, but I'm only going to ask for) Two of the four tallest mountains in New Zealand; all four are named for 18th Century explorers.

TV CLOSING THEMES

Name the show.

3: No phones, no lights, no motorcars/It's as primitive as can be/Like Robinson Crusoe/It's as primitive as can be.

6: I'm so glad we had this time together/Just to have a laugh or sing a song/Seems we just get started and before you know it/Comes the time we have to say, "So long." (tugs ear)

9: As the family waved to the camera: “You're all invited back next week to this locality/To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality . . . Set a spell. Take yer shoes off.”

12: This 70's series set in Cabrini-Green: “Just lookin' out of the window/Watchin' the asphalt grow/Thinkin' how it all looks hand-me-down/These, yeah, yeah, these (ain't we lucky we got 'em).”

15: As this bandleader signed off: “Good night, sleep tight and pleasant dreams to you/Here's a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true/And now 'til we meet again/Adios, au revoir, auf wiedersehen/Good Night!”
