How did you do? And how awesome are my answers to #7, truly?


  1. I can't believe you posted before me. I had some of the same answers but some not nearly as cool as you. And I gave up on the books. My answers included 1/ Sixteen Candles, 2/ Dallas, 3/ The Reflex, When Doves Cry, 4/ Reagan, Ferraro, 5/ Carl Lewis, Bobby Weaver, Mary Lou Retton (believe it or not, couldn't think of any swimmers!), 7/ Olympics boycotted by Communist Countries, Baby Fae, Vanessa Williams forced to resign as Miss America. I would have only gotten a 90%. Your answers are crazy, as usual! I'm not worthy!
