Oof...I was off by one, but well within time. -If- I remembered the right answer existed, I would've had it. I -am- able to recite the alphabet backwards nigh instantaneously, though, which was a massive
Thought process spoiled, actual answer isn't but it's close.
ZYXWVUT T. Tallahassee, no, I know there's something after it. Topeka. Tpqrstu...Topeka it is. (It's actually not Topeka)
How 'bout that.
I probably should have posted my guess instead of just assuming I was probably wrong. That's usually a fair assumption when it comes to state capitals, but I did get this FJ, so there are at least two I know. I always groan when they come up as the FJ category, and looking at the archive, this is probably the first one I got right since 2012
, if not earlier (it depends on which images were used -- without seeing them, I can't guess whether I got it).
I'd definitely get the Georgia O'Keeffe one in this game
now, but I don't know if I knew it in 2011.
And knowing me, I probably said Helena back in 2010
, thinking Alaska was too obvious, and Glacier National Park exists. But maybe I got it right.
I'm not even sure I got this Teen Tournament one from 2009
This one from 2008
is the most recent one I can be reasonably sure I got right. And now I've learned that my groans are completely justified.
I also found, while looking for these FJs...
