I knew George and Christopher differed by the plural ending, and went the wrong way. It was the only one of the whole list I had a shot at. They each seem equally correct and equally incorrect, even now :(.

True North strong and free!

I'm not so far off the podium, but I'm a long way from first place.

Stand on guard, TN!

I was going to say Ohio for the Jennifer Garner question, but second-guessed myself (there are a LOT of universities here in OH and I was afraid I was just making it up that Denison was one of them), and stumbled into a sheep. My questionable decisions seem to have continued from that point ... :roll:

One of my favorite songs is a Blue from 1995. (By the Jayhawks.) I wasn't sure on the exact year, but your pinning makes it a moot point.

I knew Eiffel 65 came out when I was in seventh grade so even not knowing the LeeAnn Rimes one, I knew to steer clear.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
