wouldn't it have been awesome if gilligan had done "sunshine on my shoulders"?
This is what happens when you do a TD in a hurry. I remember thinking "Wait, is that the dude from Gilligan's Island? Should I just write 'Denver'? Screw it, moving on..."

we never learned Gilligan's first name, but according to a book by producer Sherwood Schwartz, he and Bob Denver agreed that if one were needed, it would be Willie.

I'll play the drums, although I'm not much for the double bass thing, so it'll have to be A Slow Death.

I didn't even know where to begin with "strategizing" on the Ivy League question but was leaning toward Cornell. Looks like I made the right choice.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Cornell is the one that no one cares about, which means that it was definitely gonna sheep.

Of the Ivies, Cornell, Penn and Columbia get the least respect IMO (and I say this as a Columbia alum). The most famous are just as clearly Harvard, Yale and Princeton. It's interesting to see how the choices skewed on this question.

Even with the last question being a mega sheep ... I WON?!?!? (I wasn’t surprised when I saw Des Moines sheep like crazy, but I was very surprised to see the final results as I kept scrolling down.) I’ve been playing these off and on for something approaching 10 years, and I’ve made the podium a handful of times, but never to my recollection taken the top spot. Thanks, clt013, for your excellent work in running what is now my favorite TD game. :P And congrats to the fellow boardies on the podium, especially my co-leader Ironhorse!

Thanks for the TD. I'm very surprised to make 3rd place. I noted above that I was having a mediocre TD but it looks like everyone else was also.
