  3. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I'm going to guess number 7. Blaisdell sounds like a jukebox man.
  4. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Number 6.......
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

  6. TomB Administrative Assistant

  7. Jigglypuff Big Cute Pink Thing

    #4

    (- Steve -)
  8. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I Know I've heard that name before.... now if only I could place it.... hmmm....

    How about #1... I am thinking it's sports, but for some reason I thought we hadn't won at hockey ever when we won the miracle on ice...
  9. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Sorry, lost track of time and forgot to answer...will get the next one....
  10. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Well... since there are 10 answers, and only 9 can answer, then I take it none of us originally submitted the right answer...

    hmmm...
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Sorry, it's a bit of a change since the last time we played. Having someone act as the "Reader" as you would in real life seems kinda pointless here; I know you guys are honest :) but I feel having additional rewards for getting/not getting the right answer encourages Net lookups. So I'd like to be able to use most of the categories here, even those are easily susceptible to Net lookups, but to minimize the fallout, I'm not giving extra points to those who get the right answer or if everyone fails to get the right answer.

    Does that makes sense? :)

    So remember to get your guess in before Monday!
  12. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I challenge anyone to find a "famous" person, place, thing, or idea which isn't easilly found online... :D

    if you had even 15 minutes of fame, someone has a webpage about you.... somewhere....
  13. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    I thought we were on the honor system? If you have to cheat to play this game, you truly have problems with having fun.
  14. Melkor Active Member

    The beauty of trust, is that you only need it when the results are actually important. Anyone who wants to cheat is free to do so if they really care that much. Anyway, I like number 7, inventor of the jukebox.
