OK, these answers are wrong:

Baltimore Ravens
Washington Wizards
X Boston College
X Cinci
X Byron Scott
X Flordia Satate
UNLV Football
X Flyers
Utah Jazz
X University of Virginia
X Central Michigan
X Byron Scott
Buffalo Bills {sd}
Buffalo Bills
X Kentucky
X Florida
X Oregon Ducks
Minn Timberwolves
X Florida Gators

What did that mean, scorewise?

I am also instituting the Golden Brain Award. All people who have this, and only this, question correct get a -5 bonus.

That means you, Golden Brainers:
Tracer Bullet
sauce07
Damfino
rabbit77
Suprmallet
Dooku

rabbit77 used an {sd}. Under normal scoring, this question would net him -2 instead of --1. I am scoring him -6.

Now let us never speak of this question again.

Dooku is an assassin. He does not get a -15 bonus since he's not 1st 2nd, or 3rd. He gives +15 to sauce07, +10 to Tracer Bullet, and +5 JasonF.

sauce07 gets a -7 for being a Libertarian.

And Suprmallet is a Republican. So he gives everyone below him a +1, and takes a cool -7 for himself.

End result:

sauce07 +8
Tracer Bullet +10
JasonF +5
Suprmallet -7
Everyone else +1

Vajpayee (sp? - India's dude) (+?):
Venusian

I can only assume Vajpayee is some sort of anti-Sikh slur.

Gordon Brown is a wrong answer. He is not a head of state, he is a head of government. The Queen of England is the head of state.

That was the challenge I had been preparing since the thread started, so you can all rest easy now.
