Palmer is a chocolate company based in Reading. They produce a lot of the seasonal novelty chocolates you see at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. It fits the question.

Singleton for the Unisphere is a relief. I had this moment where I wasn't sure what would count as a landmark, so even as a NYer I decided to play it "safe".

Pep Boys a mega-sheep? What the hell?!

I have made a frantic charge up the leaderboard in this one! In the lead from 38th after the fourth question.

I see I didn't pin that well enough to Hershey. I can give you credit for that but I'm not optimistic about you winning this TD.

715 - WISCONSIN

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.

INCORRECT - 17

Probably my favorite incorrect TD response EVER. I'd be happy to contribute to a plaque for sillymoose.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

My ultimate goal is that catastrophe happens and everyone else in the ring who's still eligible forgets to enter either 8xx or 9xx, and I'm left standing at the mountain. But this reversal at least gives me wiggle room to avoid last.

719 - COLORADO

The worst of the worst go to the ADMAX maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado. From the information given, identify one of these scourges of humanity who currently reside or once resided at ADMAX.

  • American citizen who turned rogue during the war in Afghanistan and led an uprising of Taliban prisoners
  • Because of this wretch, we all have to take our shoes off at airport security
  • Bomber of the Atlanta Olympics and murderer of one or more abortion providers
  • He was housed at ADMAX after being convicted in Denver for the Oklahoma City bombing and before becoming the first federal prisoner executed in 40 years
  • The only person convicted of the September 11 attacks
  • Founder of the World Church of the Creator, serving 40 years for trying to arrange the murder-for-hire of a federal judge over an intellectual property dispute
  • His brother turned him in after the New York Times published his voluminous manifesto in 1996
  • He thought he was clever enough to plant a pressure-cooker bomb behind a line of children at the Boston Marathon in 2013 but not clever enough to get out of town
  • Doctor who poisoned his patients
  • He beat the death penalty twice after the Oklahoma City bombing

Cheers to Mastercone as we are the only two in the TOP 10 yet to break par as the other 8 have at least one round under 72.

lol glad you appreciated it! I knew I wasn't getting a correct answer on this question (and I already used my sheep and drop), so I figured I'd go for something entertaining
