The Citadel sheeps, but the Chunnel goes unused :!: and the Ford Bronco is a singleton. I guess I should not be surprised at any TD result, but goodness...

Next TD, I'm just going to use a random number generator for the answers I know, because clearly I'm not out leveling anyone here.
Won some of Ben Stein's money, some of Roger Lodge's, some of Chris Harrison's. None of Alex Trebek's.

I might get my dog into the act. Set out a doggie treat for each response, see which one he goes for.

I had a feeling that Citadel would either be a singleton or sheep.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

I had no idea the Mark Twain Prize was targeted for comedians and stage performers. He was a writer, and it's called "humor", so it has to be for authors, right? So, I chose to make a WAG between Dave Barry and David Sedaris? Oh, well. Gimme the Sheep +5 :lol: .
Yes, exactly! I also assumed it was limited to the written word. Can I get a do-over? ;)

I wonder if we should change the name of this game from 'Think Different' to 'Confirmation Bias'.

8. Fantasy basketball - Next up in the "Big 4" sports for us was the NBA - where a Clark Kellogg catchphrase led to my team being called the Stat Sheet Stuffers Supreme. Clark's nickname is "Special K" - which is a popular cereal for Kellogg's. Given the first (and total number of) letters in each word, name one of these Kellogg's cereal brands.

Clearly I should have gone with the homer pick of North Dakota on the hockey question, considering I’m an alum. But noooo, I decided fewer people would think of little old Lake Superior State.

Maine was an educated guess. I dated a girl who graduated from there and who was really into their hockey program. I didn't know if they ever actually won it all.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

9. Fantasy football - Three years after diving into baseball, we finally got around to starting a fantasy football league.

Big guy with nickname of kitchen appliance who scored a touchdown in Super Bowl XX [William "Refrigerator" Perry]
Long-time Brewers announcer who was also on Mr. Belvedere [Bob Uecker]
Game show host who had a self-titled sitcom with "Cleveland Rocks" as the theme song [Drew Carey]
Boxer known for biting ears and a cameo in The Hangover [Mike Tyson]
Owner of the USFL New Jersey Generals and reality show host who currently holds a prominent political position [Donald Trump]
Actor known for roles as a member of The A-Team on television and Clubber Lang in the movie Rocky III [Mr. T]
Body builder turned actor turned California governor [Arnold Schwarzenegger]
Rapper born Calvin Broadus with hits such as "What's My Name?" and "Gin & Juice" [Snoop Dogg]
Formerly married to Pamela Anderson, this singer hit #4 in 2002 with the duet "Picture" [Kid Rock]

Look who is part of the "front row"…

Thanks, clt013! I always enjoy your TDs. I also like the fact that during the reveal, you display the correct responses in one place.

I'm surprised that I came in 5th because I think I got 3 sheeps, although a couple may have been co-sheeps.
