2. SMITHSONIAN - Establishment name required. The museums of the Smithsonian Institution are some of the most popular landmarks in Washington, DC. A little more than half of them line the National Mall, between the Washington Monument and the US Capitol Building. There are 10 Smithsonian museums and galleries (not counting the “Castle,” which houses the administrative offices and information center) on the National Mall. Name any one of them (note: you must give enough information to distinguish your answer).

This was a tough one if you haven't visited DC recently, and it showed with the number of drops and unused answers, along with the fact that the National Air and Space Museum was a solid sheep answer.

Ihavejeoprosy is in the early lead after a singleton and a drop. Our top 6 players have all used their drops early, so pay attention to Tabby50894, the highest-ranked player who didn't drop one of the first two questions, along with Gamawire and Vintsanity close behind. See everyone around lunchtime for the next reveal!

Everyone knew that Edo was the former name of Tokyo, so that one sheeped pretty solidly. Interestingly enough, everything that wasn't a singleton got either 3, 6, or 9 points on this one.

3. Coach P [s] - 13 (+4)
3. Rackme32 [s] - 13
2. Saturnalia [s] - 7
1. ihavejeoprosy [s] - 5

Guessonguessonguess moves out of last with a solid answer on this one. The two singletons both move up, with squarekara moving into the top 10 and Saturnalia closing in on ihavejeoprosy's lead. TD Host Extraordinaire clt013 moves into the top 10 by using the drop.

The top 3 hold their positions, each giving a different 4-point answer, while Quantum and squarekara move into the top 5. Behind them we have quite a logjam for the top 10, as Troydozzy falls but retains a top 10 spot, while Sims, wpwells, This is Aoba, and jBeltz all move in. Just behind that, watch out for floridagator and lefty, both just outside the top 10 - both made solid jumps as well on this question, and both still have their drops.

We're going a bit accelerated in our reveals on this one - I'm out tomorrow and for the whole weekend, so Q7-Q8 will be revealed today around lunchtime, and I'll post Q9 and Q10 later this afternoon. Bonuses and results will be revealed on Monday.

See everyone later today!

7. WASHINGTON, DC BEFORE AND AFTER – phrase required, any names included in your answer must be first and last names. Where a person’s name is part of the answer, first and last are required for this question. Give one of the before-and-after phrases, somewhat associated with Washington, DC and the surrounding area, being described below. You know how these work – the answers are two or more overlapping phrases, where the last word of one phrase is the same as the first word of the next phrase. For example, an NBA player from Ohio who went on to become the 5th President of the United States would be “LeBron James Monroe.”
  • Writer of “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” who also pitched two no-hitters for the Washington Nationals in 2015.
  • Actress who plays similar characters in both Arrested Development and Archer who is the namesake for a medical center in Bethesda, Maryland.
  • A DC neighborhood south of the National Zoo, home to an investment banking firm that merged with Dean Witter in 1997.
  • 38th President of the United States whose venue was the site of the most famous (or infamous) performance of “Our American Cousin.”
  • A private school attended by both Chelsea Clinton and both of Barack and Michelle Obama’s daughters where Dewey Finn assembles a group of 4th graders to compete in a Battle of the Bands competition.
  • A…umm…clothing…company that was initially founded in 1865 to combat counterfeiting of currency.
  • Residents of a DC neighborhood named after a Civil War rear admiral and popular among the LGBT community sing the opening song from a 1994 Disney animated film.
  • A Supreme Court Justice known for being a man of few words moonlights as the main character on a kids’ TV show narrated, most famously, by Ringo Starr and George Carlin.
  • John Wall, Bradley Beal, and their teammates are employed by a game publisher best known for Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons.
  • A brand name best known for packaged rice products such as “Ready Rice” takes over a DC restaurant known for its half-smokes.

Lots of drops here, and the rest of it played fairly flat - no disastrous sheep. The top 2 remain unchanged, but ihavejeoprosy widens his lead as Saturnalia picks up 5 points with a modest sheep answer. Squarekara uses her drop and moves into 3rd, while Rackme32 reenters the top 10. Unfortunately, lefty leaves the top 10 immediately after entering it by submitting an incorrect name.

As usual on this game, perhaps the most obvious answer on this one gets a singleton.
... and the one a lot people thought would be avoided because everyone would be afraid of sheeping ... nearly sheeps.

Never change, TD, never change.

I'm not sure if the actual sheep (Lilith Fair with 8) ended up as such because people thought others wouldn't get it, or for the same reason as Woodstock...

I went for Maeda using NL West bias. I have Nomo and Ichiro shirts, so figured they are more popular.

I guessed Maeda would be the least known; I really don't know the extent of the board's baseball knowledge, and I figured the earlier generation players like Ichiro, Matsui, Nomo, and Daisuke, whose coming to the US and immediate success seemed bigger news stories, would be better known and more guessed. Then again, I suppose Maeda's signing with the Dodgers was quite a big deal at the time, too.

I was a little surprised that Maeda sheeped this one too - I was sure it would be Ichiro because he sort of spans two generations of fans.
