TD 413 - A to Z (Final results)

Post by clt013 » Sun Feb 17, 2019 3:39 pm

This is the 26th TD I have hosted, so the alphabet seemed like an appropriate theme. The title is "A to Z" - with twelve questions going through the twenty-six letters from start to finish.

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) There is no bonus for not using the "drop" or "sheep", so you probably want to take the former and get a zero for one question
5) Wrong responses are the "sheep" answer +4
6) All answers are due by 8 AM Central time on Monday, February 25, 2019
7) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

Questions

1. ABC = American Broadcasting Company; Given the initials, name one of these programs currently on the network. {Yes, this question was created before last Monday's FJ!}

9. RS = Abbreviation for redshirt (A designation seen in college sports programs); Given the team's nickname that includes "red", name one of these Division I basketball schools or professional teams.

A. Presidential elections - People (1st or last name) to receive electoral vote for US President since 1948 (Per Wikipedia; Accepting first names as listed on the web page, so neither nor James or William would count)

B. Top 60 US Cities in population (2017 Census estimates)

C. FBS schools with full-time football stadiums of capacity 50,000+; Those commonly abbreviated (such as "UNLV") = U. [Note: There are four schools (second letters A, C, T & T) that fall under "U" using that criteria.]

I think it was your TD's that offered the AllSheep line for me? Well, no need of that, just look at us. It's a mini-win for me that I don't have the 15 extra punishment points for wrong answers.

Shameless plug for my Academy Awards TD which drops on Monday AM.

I'm writing this so anyone with a passing knowledge of film feels inclined to play. I'm talking to you, twelvefootboy!

For this one, I'm setting aside my diabolical elimination-based mini-TD format and reverting to the classic TD game, with one DROP and one SHEEP

See you Monday!
