$41,000 for three days (under old values) is quite impressive. Mark (or anyone else for that matter), would you happen to know about Gordon's stats on the day he was defeated?

In the category of something is better than nothing I added 12/20/90: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6457

It's a partial game found here: https://www.facebook.com/nthnhwtt/video ... cation=ufi

with 2 games edited into 13 minutes and change leading to of course a lot missing. There were some peeks at the scoreboard though not enough. Thanks to my scoresheet for that game I know where the DDs were located. The rest is a lot of guesswork and messing around to get the numbers to work.

I'll tackle the second game at a later time.
Well done making the most of what you had to work with!

Though a Beatty film shared its name with this fertility goddess, it bore little fruit at the box office
I would argue that the relevant portion of the clue is "this fertility goddess", and thus that

I filled in 3/13/02: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1720

The links (only 3 - made the task easier) should all work, in addition to the player pics.
