I keep forgetting how different American malls are of Canadian ones. Hate to sound like TPH, but I hadn't heard of any of those places (I've been in a few American malls (including Mall of America - that's still your biggest one, right?) but not often enough or recently enough). Was vaguely aware that there's a popular take-out Chinese food place in your malls, but damned if I knew the name. (Don't care much for Chinese food anyways (again, TPH impression was unintentional, I should hope by now that the difference between us is I at least like to learn about things that I don't experience, I'm sure that if that same category came up in a few months, I'd get at least 2 or 3 of them.))

It's in my mind because Winnipeg used to briefly have a basketball team (minor league) called the Thunder. (Though it was only around for a few years in the early '90s I remember it because they used the AC/DC song "Thunderstruck", which I happen to enjoy.)
Gotta feel for Gabriela, losing on a tiebreaker (and a super-easy one at that), and missing the wildcard cutoffs - but I suppose that the wagering was inexcusable. (I did think that Evan probably knew that their scores might be enough, as he wagered much smaller than the rest.) Was exciting to see it come down to that.
No comments on Michelle Obama's pace of reading, or the length of her clues? (True, she wasn't Oprah-slow, but she wasn't exactly peppy.)
