FJ in a strong category & I couldn't get it. Went with Chile & Columbia.
I was hoping they would have the Poulan Weedeater Bowl but we can't have everything. :geek:

Disappointed that there were no Warren Zevon themed clues in the “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” category.

I wonder if, for the BWI clue, they would have accepted "What is the airport I hate having to drive to?"
I kept trying to come up with Barre-Wilkes...then realized I had it backwards. I've even used BWI (then took light rail to Baltimore).
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport does have the cooler code, though: AVP
Nothing beats Sioux City's SUX.
Fresno's FAT has got to be close. Learned that one from a joke about an overweight person flying there.

Instantly came up with that long, skinny country. Then spent most of the remaining time trying to recall SA geography. Decided on what turned out to be the right answer as a best guess. That didn't work on yesterday's game, but did today.

I knew there was a reason Tainted Love sounded more familiar than usual (still couldn't recall the title in time). Apparently 20/20 (on ABC) is airing a special on The Bobbitts and that song's used in the commercial.

(As this article came out on the 21st, pretty sure the spots were running at the time...)
