Yeah, Wingstreet should count. Not that I've heard of it before tonight.

Oh, and screw all y'all for judging my Comic answer. Did no one else here see the nerdgasm over Quasar in the Comic Sheep thread?

Wow... I'd still be in the top 5 if it weren't for you morons not knowing Monopoly is a Parker Bros. game.

Other than that, pretty cool so far. Rockmj is burning through the questions. Definitely seems like the way to do it to avoid so many challenges.

I'm probably jinxing myself by quibbling over a point, but it looks like I only got -1 instead of -2 for question #3. Also, woo hoo! 2nd place!

Too bad I switched out Monopoly for an equally wrong answer! Should have kept with the sheep. Stupid... but 3rd place, not bad so far.

I think this should count. The question asks for an artist that won Grammy. Mili Vanilli won a grammy, they just got it taken away at a later time.

I think so too. The way the question was written, it's irrelevant that they were later stripped of the Grammy.

Milli Vanilli did not win a rap Grammy. I know we've blocked Milli Vanilli from our collective consciousness, but they were not a rap act.

It should not count since they did not win it in a rap category. They won best new artist.
