TD 419 - TD or Not TD (Final results)

Posted: Mon Apr 22, 2019 11:11 am
by clt013
The first twelve questions of this quiz are based on "TD" people/things, while all of the bonus round answers also have those initials. So the title for this one is "TD or Not TD".

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 1 PM Central time on Monday, April 29, 2019
7) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

Questions

1. Ted Danson was first nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 1983 and later won twice. Name another person to win "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series" since Danson's initial nomination in 1983.

2. Tammy Duckworth is currently a US Senator from Illinois. Name another female member of the current US Senate.

3. Tony Dungy is a Pro Football Hall of Fame coach who led the Colts to a Super Bowl XLI win. Name another Super Bowl champion coach who either: 1) Won since Dungy's title or 2) Is in the Hall of Fame as a coach [That latter requirement means Mike Ditka (in the Hall of Fame as a player) does not count.]

4. Timothy Dalton has played James Bond on film, while Sean Connery did so in movies such as Dr. No. Connery also won an Academy Award (Best Supporting Actor) in 1987 - name that film or one he appeared in (per Wikipedia) since then. [Uncredited cameos or voice roles do not count.]

That question is looking for a T or D city, which may not necessarily be the team's name.

That will teach me not to read the complete question carefully as "champion" was well hidden in plain sight at the end of the line.

It will be interesting to see if 9021amyers did the same thing as he has proven time and again how well he knows sports here.
