Well, I've managed to manage a record of sheeps or runner up sheeps this one. I really enjoyed it, so I am happy to take a licking and keep on ticking.

I've really managed to better my standing the last few questions. Animation has been very good to me.

12. BONUS #1: Choose one of the two options - each with a maximum bonus of -10.

A. A different route home took us through Missouri - where we elected to continue towards home and not visit with other friends and/or family. An earlier "detour" to South Carolina would have given us the same option, but we passed on that as well. Anyway, the state universities of SEC members South Carolina and Missouri are both based in cities named Columbia. Many other city names are shared by NCAA Division 1 basketball campuses in different states and some are listed here. For up to five, give the two states that have a college based in a city by that name. (Example: If Athens were listed, the correct response would be Georgia and Ohio.) Each response must include the letter and two states. {Both states correct = -2, 1 wrong = 0, both wrong = +1}

A. Bowling Green
B. Charleston
C. Conway
D. Durham
E. Greenville
F. Huntsville

Thanks for the fun TD-thought I had a podium finish in the bag until I re-read the bonus question. Oh well, still my best finish ever, I believe.

Thanks for hosting this fun TD. I seem to have lost my mojo from the time I won Four TD's in a row. Maybe hosting 9 tds in the first half of this year took something out of me. I'm disheartened by all the mediocre responses I gave that scored four or five. And I'm terribly embarrassed by mistaking "you got it all" by the Jets for a Madonna song.
