2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 1, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Mon Jul 29, 2013 1:20 pm

Welcome to the 2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge.

Please read the rules thread to make sure you know what's going on before scrolling any further. Also, please remember to post your Wild Card eligibility.

For convenience sake, I'll post a blank posting form after the clues.

If you post your answers within a couple of hours (or so) of when the clues go up, please put your response in spoiler tags. After that, you can still use them if you want, but you don't have to. That way we can still mock the silly people without having the clues accidentally spoiled.

Correct answers for today's game will be posted on Wednesday.

Here we go.

I had trouble getting the spoiler brackets to work, and accidentally posted this without spoilers. Since I have fixed it, please don't delete it now. Sorry! :oops:

Edit: I guess not reading the rules is no excuse, but my answer to the last question in the first category was a total guess, which I would not have taken if I knew it was going to be deducted. As a rookie I throw myself on the mercy of the court
