We are going to finish today, right?

Also, since it's 2009, are we going to get a decade sheep as well?

We will probably finish today, but I'm not making any promises.

I hope we do, since I have work tomorrow and wouldn't be around.

Byron Scott is a guy, not a team. Also, cinci is way too broad of an answer.

Those that listed colleges without specifying Football, Basketball or Hockey should be treated as wrong answers.

Does Central Michigan have BB or hockey teams?

I change my vote as well.

"cinci" should not be an acceptable answer.

It would have been nice if they specified the sport, but just giving the school and team name is an accurate answer to the question as worded.

But just two people bothered to include the team name. (and one was wrong)

The question implies specifying 1 of 3 sports, we shouldn't get 3 chances for one answer.

2 in my case

I think school names are good with the way the question is worded, but would understand if The Bus ruled the other way.

Take this: Name a professional or Division I team in football, basketball, or hockey that lost or fired its head coach.

You're answering this: Name a professional or Division I team in football, basketball, or hockey (with a condition)

OSU Buckeyes is an accurate answer --then you have to decide if it meets the condition.

I don't have a dog in this hunt. I went pro.

I bet The Bus is wishing he had made the question to name the coach.

By the way, I'm surprised that with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, people questioned whether their shows were on late enough at night. I would question that they host talk shows.

I also would have challenged that neither hosts a talk show.

They both have guests and interviews as a regular part of their shows. Seems like a talk show to me.

Is Nightline a talk show?

Yeah, but then he un-resigned. He's on an indefinite leave of absence.

My DVR generically describes Letterman, Leno, and Conan as comedy sketches and celebrity interviews.

It describes Stewart and Colbert as satirical takes on the day's news.

He didn't resign. He announced that he would resign in 2010. (And then retracted that.)

Well. He was still in "resign mode" when I submitted my answers.

Plus, "indefinite leave of absence" still means that Florida has lost a coach... if only temporarily.
