Finally, those hours as a 12-year-old looking up baseball stadiums on the Internet and watching Figure It Out pay off!

Good game!

Ha same here. When I was about nine or ten years old I bought a big book with pictures and write-ups about all the baseball stadiums. Read it so much it got worn out. All I had to do this time was run through a mental list of the teams and was home free from there.

Changing Munich is going to hurt for a while.. if you ain't first, you're last! :mrgreen: Congrats to you on the dub, and thanks clt for another great game!
