Congrats to the podium, thanks to our host, and cheers to the weekend!
[edited to add similar thanks and congrats from "beansandcornbread," my husband who can't recall his JBoard password and is playing from out in the cold.]
After learning about the Rocket City Trash Pandas here, I had to look up their logo. In so doing, I encountered quite a few hilarious Minor League mascots like the Montgomery Biscuits, the New Orleans Babycakes, etc. A laugh and a half!

It dawned on me suddenly while on the road a few days ago that I had probably mixed up Branch/Carlton and I just feel ashamed of myself now. I love both the Benee and Branch songs. I saw Branch's face and the wrong name just popped out - luckily it didn't impact my standing much. Note to self: NEVER do these quizzes in ten minutes or less. :lol:

Thanks as always to our esteemed host and for clprez for emerging victorious!
