Thanks for an awesome game, and for reconsidering my answer to Question 7. I love any questions based on the Bard. I would love to visit the new Globe. It hadn't been built the last time I visited London - ages ago.

Thanks for the game. Congrats to the winners. It's always fun to see the variety of prizes.

My lesson:

U = uniform
U = uniform
U = uniform
U = uniform
U = uniform
U = uniform

and by now I should be able to recall Judith & Hamnet. Perhaps next time they come up.

No, thank YOU for dealing with it so graciously. Sorry you had to be the guinea pig while I worked out that particular judgment call.

Thanks - it was a lot of fun! :) It was especially fun being in the lead for two questions (although I knew I was doomed after that!)

G. men's 400m individual medley - RYAN LOCHTE – Singleton!

Got my entry in 10 minutes before the deadline! I had a good feeling that this one was not going to sheep. Even though Ryan Lochte got a lot of publicity, with Men's 100 Butterfly being a choice, I figured that most people would know that Phelps won one and Lochte won the other, but wouldn't be sure who won which. I can thank the fact that I was a serious swimmer when I was in high school for knowing this one.

Thanks for the fun game! Thanks to my love of Shakespeare, my weird fascination with retired hurricane names, and Mr. Lochte, this was my best TD finish ever!
