TD 365 - clt013 (Final Results)

Post by clt013 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 10:06 am

Since this is the 13th TD I have created, it seems like an appropriate time to use my handle as the theme. So this one is called "clt013" and almost all of the questions have some combination of 13 letters in the "category" name and/or that number of answers while also being based on some of my experiences.  

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for two questions
4) There will be a BONUS of (-5) for anyone who gives 13 correct answers and does not use a "drop" or "sheep"
5) Wrong responses are the higher of either +10 points or the "sheep" answer +3
6) All answers are due by 8 AM Central time on Tuesday, January 16, 2018
7) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

J. The Greenbrier Classic (The Old White TPC)

Questions 10-12 fall under the category of Favorite Teams

10. Blue Jays (MLB): In the early 80s, I adopted Toronto as my favorite baseball team - primarily because I liked their logo. They eventually reached (and won) consecutive World Series in 1992-93. Name any franchise to appear in at least two World Series since then. {Hint: Teams by current division = AL East - 2, AL Central - 3, AL West - 2, NL East - 4, NL Central - 1, NL West - 1} [13 possible answers]

11. Penguins (NHL): On cold winter nights in Iowa with nowhere to go (and no cable TV), I sometimes listened to sports on the radio. Thanks to a strong KDKA signal - and silly Mike Lange catch phrases that teenage me found entertaining - I began following the Pittsburgh hockey club. Since then, they have made six Stanley Cup Final appearances (and won five times). Name any Penguin player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, any team the Penguins beat in the Stanley Cup Final or any location (city or arena counts - though not scored separately) of a Cup-clinching victory by the team. {Hints: 66 (ML), 71 (EM), 87 (SC); All cups won on the road - 3 in arenas no longer in use; 2 "Original Six" opponents; 1 team that has since moved.} [13 possible answers]

12. Seahawks (NFL): As a young child, I collected gumball helmets of all NFL teams and was excited in the late 70s when there were two new teams to add. I also decided to pick one of that pair as my favorite and went with Seattle's blue and green over Tampa's Bucco Bruce. Although the Buccaneers won one first, the Seahawks have been to three Super Bowls and also claimed a league championship. Name any team that Seattle has ever beaten in the playoffs or how many seconds elapsed before they scored in each half of Super Bowl XLVIII. {Hints: Teams by current division = AFC East - 1, AFC West - 2, NFC East - 2, NFC Central - 3, NFC South - 2, NFC West - 1; Only 3 of this year's playoff participants appear on the list} [12 possible answers]

13. "Unclassifieds": This list contains a baker's dozen's worth of "other stuff" - choose one to answer. (Include letter in response.)

A. I was born in the state which shares its name with this ship site of Japanese WWII surrender
B. A rather uninteresting school field trip took me to this Iowa town that borders both IL & WI
C. In addition to the Field of Dreams diamond, I have also been to the gym used as Hickory High's home in this movie
D. My first vacation after graduating from college included a stop at the US Olympic Training Center in this state
E. This two-word city where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean is where I have spent my most time on a boardwalk and seashore
F. Delaware was the primary site for my only one of these bicycle rides of triple digit miles in a single day
G. Most musicians I have seen in concert will probably not be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - which is located in this city
H. Visiting this (certainly not defunct) venue allowed each of the members of my family (a quartet) to be in a different state at the same time
I. I hit a few golf balls "at altitude" (and was too inept to gain much distance in the thinner air) on the University of Wyoming course in this city
J. During my 2016 visit to Cooperstown, I was able to see the Blue Jay logo on this player's plaque
K. Two of the stuffed penguins in my collection came from locations of this theme park in San Diego and Orlando
L. Both times that I visited Seattle, I took the monorail to this iconic landmark that "pierces" the sky
M. My only trip off the "mainland" of North America was to this British island territory known for being part of an "infamous" geometric shape

For the BONUS round, there are multiple paths from which to choose (#14 only, #15 only, #14 & #15 or neither) and one features the biggest bonus offered in any of my TDs. Please read the note at Question #15 before making your choice.

14. This is the more "traditional" route - answer up to six of the following questions. [Correct answer = -1, Incorrect = +1, Sheep = 0] (Give responses as letter followed by answer.)

A. Name the year of birth for everyone listed in question #1
B. Name the movie: Spike Lee, Larry Fishburne, historically black college (1988)
C. Name the TV show made into a movie: Randi Oakes, Maya Rudolph
D. Name the school which was in the MVC last season, but is now in the American Athletic Conference
E. Whose name is on Maryland's largest airport (BWI)?
F. Name the interstate that crosses: Vermont (S/N) [MA to Canada]
G. Name the two performers I saw: Wayne's World (Both names needed)
H. Name one of the two teams who played in an NHL "neutral site" regular season game I attended at the Peoria Civic Center
I. Name the PGA tournament held at the course in the Quad Cities where I have played
J. Name the last team to lose the AL Championship Series in consecutive years before the Blue Jays did in 2015-16
K. Name the only team besides the Penguins to win consecutive Stanley Cups since 1992
L. Name the only team besides the Seahawks that is unbeaten in NFC Championship (Super Bowl era) games
M. Name the location of the airport with this code: CLT

15. So maybe you think that you are hopelessly behind after the original 13 queries. This could be your ticket to an amazing comeback - just answer all of these (admittedly obscure) either/or questions [Correct answer = -1, Incorrect = +2] and if every response is correct, you have "Shot the Moon" and your -13 total will be doubled to a SUPER DUPER MEGABONUS of -26. (Give responses as letter followed by answer.)

NOTE: Those who choose to answer Question #14 can also do this one -- with the person submitting the most correct answers (no penalty for incorrect responses) receiving a BONUS of (-2) [or (-1) in the event of a tie]. If trying to "shoot the moon", you can only answer #15.

N. Which of these political figures was born on the same date (day, month, year) as me? A. South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem or B. UN Ambassador Nikki Haley
O. What adjective is used before "Pointers" in my current town's school nickname? A. Fightin' or B. Stormin'
P. For which ESPN game show did I audition? A. 2 Minute Drill or B. Stump the Schwab
Q. In which sport was I on an intramural championship team in college? A. Softball or B. Volleyball
R. In which town is the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore located? A. Princess Anne or B. Salisbury
S. In which town did RAGBRAI finish each of the two years that I biked the last day? A. Clinton or B. Muscatine
T. Which children's TV show did I (with my daughter) see on their tour? A. Dora the Explorer or B. Go Diego Go
U. Which is the only MLB team I have not seen play in person? A. Mets or B. Rangers
V. The closest I have ever come to a hole-in-one (about 1.5 feet) was at a course in which state? A. South Carolina or B. Tennessee
W. I have seen the Blue Jays play road games in seven different cities. Which of these is NOT one of them? A. Detroit or B. Milwaukee
X. I have not seen the Penguins play in their home arena, but did watch them in Washington a few times. Besides the Capitals, which teams have I seen host a game in their own arena? A. Blue Jackets and Coyotes or B. Avalanche and Hurricanes
Y. Which divisional rival did the Seahawks play during my lone visit to CenturyLink Field? A. 49ers or B. Cardinals
Z. Which country did I visit first? A. Canada or B. Mexico

The post says that question 14 can accept up to six answers but the Google Form says eight. :?
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I changed a couple of things with the questions after initially creating the form and forgot to go back and update.

Thanks for catching my error - I have made the belated corrections to the form.

Does Q-3 require both the name of the TV show and the movie if they are slightly different, or just either title?

Aarggh!

I wasn't paying much attention when I opened this thread, and I thought I was in the TD364 thread. I thought, oh well, two more sheep to add to the pile, but then I realized it was the first two questions of TD365. I barely finished out of last place in that TD, so let's hope I can do it again.

Re: TD 365 - clt013 (Q1-Q7 revealed)

4. NCAA Hoops Loop: One of the Division I basketball leagues is the Missouri Valley Conference -- which includes Bradley University, the college I attended. Thirteen different schools have been in the conference at one time or another since I started at BU, but for this question name any other school that currently plays basketball in the MVC. {Hint: All but one school is located in a state beginning with "I".} [9 possible answers]

Almost a third of the field bailed on this one and we have the first "orphan" answers of this TD…

5. Maryland Mania: I lived in this mid-Atlantic locale for six years after graduating from college. Name one of these symbols or facts about the "Old Line State". (Give response as letter followed by answer.)

C. State bird
D. State crustacean
E. State dog
F. State flower
G. State reptile

Appropriately, the horse racing site came out of the gates strong and then (after being caught by the capital) came back to claim sheep status…

6. Pedal Thru Iowa: That is what thousands of people do each summer during an event called RAGBRAI as they bike from the state's western border (usually) to its eastern border. After returning to the state where I spent most of my pre-college years, I have participated in this annual bicycle ride on multiple occasions. Name the interstate which crosses one of the given states from the listed borders. (Give answer as letter followed by interstate.) {Note: W/E = even numbered routes, N/S = odd numbered routes}

A. Arkansas (W/E) [OK to TN]
B. Colorado (N/S) [WY to NM]

H. South Dakota (W/E) [WY to MN]
I. Texas (W/E) [NM to LA]

Doing reasonably well for once. Still time to sink, though!

Rats. Knew a couple of the interstates for sure (been up and down I-5 more times than I can count), but tried to pick one I thought would be less popular. And even then I had company with the wrong answer. Yet another case of overthinking a TD.

Valpo just joined the conference this year to take the place of a departing team whose identity is yet to be revealed in this game; I was hoping most contestants weren’t aware of it yet.

Should have gone with Loyola, the second-newest member of the conference, instead.

same thinking with valparaiso...was going to to go missouri state, but since that is the only one in a non I state, thought that might have been used more than it was
