Re: No. 9 ... really? No Central Florida, no South Florida, no Florida International?? Guess Miami should have been in the "other than" category.

Curse you Joan Rivers! I was between Joan of Arc and Joan Jett on that one and didn't even think of Rivers. Other than that question, I had all the first answers, which should continue my climb up the standings.

I got hammered this week. Regrets on the bakery question - my first thought was bread but Mrs. Redneck intervened and assured me people don't go to the bakery for bread, they go there for pastries. Mrs. Redneck is not a good sheep. Dammit!

224. Missed the field twice and missed 13 points, I think. Alas, I'm afraid I either didn't gain or lost ground this week at the top of the pack.

I wonder if this is a regional thing. In Southern California, we can usually get away with 10 mph over the limit without worrying about being ticketed.

Surprised nobody answered 65.

Has nobody else heard you can go 9 over but once you get to 10 they will pull you over? Wow, that ruined my whole week

I knew that was your thinking when I saw your answer. I've heard it, too.

That's my real answer. My Sheep answer, though, was 70. I do 74, but seems like most people I know aren't quite the daredevil I am and stick at 70.

I was damn close to putting Collins.

229. Think I only missed a "perfect" score with the bakery question. Didn't even think of bread I guess. But went with cake, so it didn't hurt much.

Can't shake Pilot though.

Damnit... I knew i should have picked Toronto instead of Montreal.

I didn't realize that Starbucks was a brand of coffee, or else I might have said that.

I thought there were more speed demons here than the sheep question showed. I would have put 70, but thought that was too slow for most of you.

I knew I should have e-mailed Copperpot and said I'm changing my answer on any question where I scored in single-digits to a double-digit answer.

Another craptastic week -- 144. A pair of ones and a two. Has to be my worst week ever (and considering where I am in the standings, that's pretty bad)

I scored 190 points. The maximum this week was 248.

Also, copperpot, 16 people answered "junk food," not 14.

I hadn't seen any of the movies, so I Googled "Oscars predictions 2012" last week. Most sites' predictions weren't up yet,  but I found one, I think, at the Los Angeles Times' entertainment blog. The author said The Artist was better but voters love movies like Hugo. I listened blindly. I would have done a hell of a lot better on that one had I waited a few days because seemingly everyone else knew The Artist would win. That guy would be terrible at Sheep.

You should have read our Oscars thread. The Artist has been the assumed winner for months now.

Last I checked, that thread was just IJAG calling women's dresses "frumpy."

Only bombed on one instead of the usual three or four. I could surge to 28th place. Rico, your post indicates you have grounds for divorce. And I see that on one question, someone's expertise got them in trouble. And finally, I giggled at someone who was at the Toronto outing not putting Toronto
