I had a sneaking suspicion my Royals would be best avoided here.
At least you didn't purposefully ignore the team whose logo is your profile picture that ended up being unused.

609 - NEW JERSEY

New Jersey is named for a European island. Name a European island.

SINGLETONS

Kirbstar Faroe Islands
Congrats to Kirbstar for the singleton. I was in Kirkwall year before last, so thought about "Orkney Islands." However, I don't remember the names of any of the individual islands in the group, and because of the phrasing, didn't know if a plural for the group would be acceptable.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I'm glad to see Poppin' Fresh get so much name recognition here--so many years after losing the lead role in Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

My wife was on Aran Island off the coast of Ireland almost 2 years ago and she brought home a sweater that she loves to tell people about. It's finally paid dividends!

Wasn't Columbus FROM Genoa? I dismissed that answer for that very reason. Kind of a loose definition of "visit".

And here I thought I was being clever by saying Spain (I wanted to go Madrid but I wasn't sure what the capital of Spain was - kudos to the people who said the palace or Madrid) but 8 other people thought nearly the same as I did.
Was once hugged by Maggie Speak!

616 - MICHIGAN

You know how to do Before and After. Combine two clues into an overlapping answer. Example: Current supreme court justice who wrote the Declaration of Independence: Clarence Thomas Jefferson.
  • Dearborn-based pioneer auto manufacturer famous for writing "The Good Soldier."
  • 1997 film starring John Cusack and Minnie Driver (whose name is itself a before & after) that lets the recipient fill in any dollar amount desired.
  • International port of entry who died at the guillotine on October 16, 1793.
  • Castaway who's home of the Wolverines
  • Monroe-based manufacturer of recliners who fronted Culture Club
  • Tool of witchcraft who made it to the Hall of Fame and serves as a spokesperson for AIDS and HIV causes
  • Businessman who saved Chrysler and owns Minute Maid, Fanta, Barq's, and Dasani
  • Legendary African-American singer of "I Just Called to Say I Love You" whose real name is Diana Prince
  • Boundary water who served as ambassador to Italy and Brazil under Ike (A correct answer will have five words)
  • Christopher Reeve went back to 1912 (or was it a dream?) In this picture filmed on Mackinac Island that chooses a Man of the Year (or something like that) annually.

Marty Robbins (!) the sheep? And the Statler Brothers a mere singleton. I also nearly chose Autry; could have named them all but the two that were unused, so my selection skills continue to betray :lol:

Bathrooms didn't exist until the 20th century, so Columbus didn't visit the bathroom.

I can't believe so many of you knew Marty Robbins and Alabama for the country music question - Robbins is the only country singer, to my knowledge, to have a second career as a race car driver.

Two singletons moves me up --- two spots. Awesome. Love how Harvard and every well-known African country were largely ignored. Love ya TD! :lol:

Wow - a podium finish after 4th place in the previous one. Bracing for the inevitable crash back to reality.

Thanks for putting all of these together.

Did not expect a podium finish after sheeping the first two questions.

Looking forward to the rest! Thanks for putting these together so far.
