Me on Q9: I should use Newfoundland Time.
Also me on Q9: Nah, people know Newfoundland Rime because it’s got the weird half-hour thing. I’ll just put Atlantic Time, the super secret time zone to those of us in the US.

Silly me thought DT and ST would be counted separately and went PST hoping that would do better than PDT. Luck and stupidity paid off for only two points. It would have been a DROP if I had accurately understood the limited number of choices. Whatever works in these games.

Aren't there even fewer correct options for the next question?

I knew Seattle U partly because I grew up in Pacific NW, and also because their soccer team recently played the local d1 team in my current town.

Way to go Vermonter and Peachbox and thanks for another great game clt013 (other than that Cardinal I had to swear at in my submission comments). First in and 3rd place for me. I'll take it.

Thanks for hosting, clt013, and sorry to Larry Wilcox. I waited a solid week to submit, hoping I'd recall that name, but nuthin'. Some rescues are beyond the capabilities of the CHP! :lol:

Thanks for a fun TD and shout out to the extremely cumbersome title of Golf Magazine Presents 36 Great Holes Starring Fred Couples on the Sega 32X for remembering ol’ Fred for one of the bonus questions.

Apology accepted.

Frankly, I'm just glad nobody mistakenly referred to me as Gary Sandy.

Your friend,

It occurred to me that you never specified that we couldn't name Des Moines as being in the same time zone as Des Moines :mrgreen:

Thanks for hosting! I'll happily take the top 10 finish after that many sheep and a wrong answer.
