I hate to nitpick but I'm not sure why my answer was marked incorrect. While the city of Harper's Ferry is in WV, the national park itself is in three states. From the National Parks website, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers in the states of West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland. https://www.nationalparks.org/explore-p ... rical-park
Sorry - completely my fault for not pinning this better with something like mailing address (which is WV for Harper's Ferry). I will correct your score.

WRONG ANSWER
Category 13 (G - Roadhouse Blues)
Crap... I didn't even have the right year.
At least it only cost me 5 points, if I had picked the lowest response I knew (A Clockwork Orange).

And all of the water is in Maryland. Because, as I was told by a Virginian, "Virginia is a cheapskate state and it sold off all the water to Maryland for some money many years ago."

I almost did a wise-ass move and said Mt. Washington Maryland because I once worked for the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the Mt. Washington neighborhood of Baltimore. Not sure if that would have flown though.

I went back and checked the ones that I have hosted - some have hit 6 sheep in 10 questions (although those all included at least 1 co-sheep) and one went 5 for 10 without any co-sheep. I would not be surprised if I have come close to those marks with one of my entries.

I studied economics in college and my thought was "Adam Smith is bound to sheep."

Why do I play this game again?

I just looked at TD 334, in which I took 8 sheep, 2 second sheep, and 1 wrong answer in 12 questions...

I am 5 sheep out of 10 for this TD, and I don't think there were any co-sheep, but I didn't go back and check.

BONUS Round (Correct answer = -1, incorrect answer = +1)

11: Some US airport codes are easier to decipher than others. Name up to six cities represented by these codes. (Give answers as letter followed by city.)

A. BDL
B. BNA
C. ICT
D. LNK
E. MCO
F. MLI
G. PDX
H. RDU
I. SAN
J. SMF

The idea for this category came long before the recent board discussion of airport names. That thread helping to push the rate of correct responses to 93% seems unlikely, but there were lots of bonus points earned. From the most attempted to the least…
