1. Name a host of "Saturday Night Live" whose primary claim to fame is sports. (Pro wrestling doesn't count, sorry Hulk Hogan and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.) (Also, Mark Harmon, Ed O'Neill, and Carl Weathers did play football, and Tony Danza was a boxer, but they are much better known as actors, so they don't count either.) (Feel free to ask if any borderline answer you have is acceptable; if not, I'll ask for a replacement without penalty) (29 answers)
2. Name one of the 12 sons of the Biblical patriarch Jacob. (12 possible answers, obviously)
3. Name a person who has won multiple Nobel Prizes OR a Nobel Prize winner whose parent, child, or spouse also won a Nobel Prize. (no in-laws) (23 answers)
4. Name a husband or ex-husband of a Best Actress Oscar winner since Susan Sarandon won in March 1996 (Sarandon not included). (The marriage can be before, during, or after the Oscar win, but has to be official.) (20 answers)
5. Name a winner of the AL or NL batting title (that's batting average) since 2001. (The 2001 season is included.) (20 answers)
6. Name a PROFESSIONAL winner of the U.S. version of "Dancing with the Stars." (To help jog your memories, here's a list of the celebrity winners who partnered with those pros: Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, Helio Castroneves, Kristi Yamaguchi, Brooke Burke, Shawn Johnson, Donny Osmond, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Hines Ward, J. R. Martinez, Donald Driver, Melissa Rycroft, Kellie Pickler, and Amber Riley.) (9 answers)
7. Name a professional team primary mascot (NBA, NFL, NHL, or MLB) that is a non-human animal (living or costumed) but is not an animal in the team name. (For example, a bulldog mascot for the Bulldogs would not count, but a bulldog for a non-Bulldogs team would count. Also, the animal has to be a recognizable kind of animal, so creatures like the Phillie Phanatic, Mr. Met, or Youppi! don't count). (43 answers as far as I can tell.) (If you have a questionable mascot, ask and I'll tell you if it counts; if it doesn't, I'll let you submit another mascot.)

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark
If music be the food of love, play on
A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players
If you prick us, do we not bleed?
Out, damned spot! Out, I say!

What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet
Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown
I am a man more sinned against than sinning
