I was so tempted to just answer ‘King’ for #4.

Or maybe ‘What’s King?’

Me too. I guess they were thinking about who could make that throw to third base.
I'm smart and I want respect.

My left field memories

Chasing a ball hit over my head and my pants leg getting caught at the bottom of a chain link fence allowing the batter to score as I could not free myself in time

A bee flying up my pants leg and in a panic I crushed it instead of trying to cut off the upward flight and getting it to fly back out the bottom. The next time I was at that field I had rubber bands at the cuffs.

Not having a hand sufficiently big enough to always be accurate throwing a softball I airmailed a throw attempting to nab a runner at home and the ball sailed well over the backstop and into the street

A batter lined a single and jogged to first. This game being hardball I gunned an accurate strike to first base and nipped him. Or at least as called by my local playground director also serving as ump when we were in the field.

I once won four in a row at this game and another time I won four out of five so I seem to really suck now.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Thanks to everyone for playing. I've liked my set-up on my last 2 or 3 TDs of offering a bonus for answering all questions as a means of incentivizing more answers while still allowing lifelines for those who need them. Hopefully everybody else likes that sort of compromise approach.

9. Welcome to the Machine

This song is critical of the business end of the music industry. We all know that certain aspects of the television industry have proved controversial as well. Name somebody who has hosted Jeopardy! since the passing of Alex Trebek.

Unsurprisingly, nobody dropped this question.

Savannah Guthrie - 5 (sheep)
floridagator, clt013, Woof, Leander, Woppy T

Robin Roberts - 4
gamawire, mahatma, AFRET CMS, classicroadster

Buzzy Cohen - 2
clprez, squarekara

Mayim Bialik - 2
choppernewt, Rackme32

David Faber - 2
SBurrus, econgator

Joe Buck - 2
Peachbox, merica

Singletons -

Mike Richards (lefty)
Katie Couric (MarkBarrett)
Aaron Rodgers (heppm01)
Bill Whitaker (Vermonter)
Dr. Sanjay Gupta (MattKnowles)
George Stephanopolous (threearruda)
LeVar Burton - beansandcornbread

Unused - Ken Jennings, Dr. Oz, Anderson Cooper

10. Not Now John

Give the full name of one of these famous Johns.

Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante
Would-be presidential assassin; released from psychiatric care in 2016 John Hinckley Jr.
Serial killer who doubled as a clown; executed in Illinois in 1994 John Wayne Gacy
Professional wrestler who has the record for most fulfilled wishes with the Make A Wish Foundation with over 650; you can’t see him John Cena
Late software programmer who vocally disowned the anti-virus software marketed under his name John McAfee
Current Atlanta Hawks player, nicknamed “John the Baptist” for his powerful dunks John Collins
US Attorney General from 2001 to 2005 John Ashcroft
Current US Senator from Colorado; briefly sought the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination John Hickenlooper
Lead singer of the Sex Pistols, also known as "Johnny Rotten" John Lydon

It wasn't a massive sheep, so it shouldn't be too Rotten for your score...

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to Ironhorse. I am curious about the entries that received the -4 bonus, though. It is a really nice feature to include, but I think the list might be incomplete.

Thanks for hosting, Ironhorse, from both me and beansandcornbread. In recognition of this milestone, he's attempting to get his jboard account re-activated after years of disuse. Fingers crossed!

Nobody else picked John Frusciante.

I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

Fun game, thanks Ironhorse! And congrats to the top Dogs.

I want to clarify I used the DROP because I misread the rules:
Rules wrote:5) Ten correct answers with no wrong answers, sheep, or drops will result in a -4 point bonus.
I thought this meant if I had a single answer that turned out to be a sheep response, I would lose the bonus. I now see that caveat refers to using the "sheep" option. I did put in my entry that I would have selected catcher ;)

My misinterpretation aside, I would suggest that a bonus like this be tied to a proportion of total entrants, rather than be a fixed number. I recall I had a similar loophole in one of my TDs and a few players took advantage of it.
