    Come on, we can sweep the board! Let's keep the ball rolling!

    EDIT: Come on Corran, you can do it! Keep us alive.

    This thread is reasonably entertaining, but it's like throwing 7 innings and giving up 2 runs after a no-hitter. Of course it looks lousy.

    good job harps! come on corran! daddy likes his sig the way it is!

    EDIT: the bad thing about posting from home was that I couldn't give my answer the way I had prepared it, for full, stylish effect:

    [image=http://www.americanrhetoric.com/images/fieldofdreamsmann.JPG]

    Ray, people will come, Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway, not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. "Of course, we won't mind if you have a look around," you'll say. "It's only twenty dollars per person." They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it; for it is money they have and peace they lack.

    And they'll walk out to the bleachers, and sit in shirt-sleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game, and it'll be as if they'd dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick, they'll have to brush them away from their faces.

    And besides, even a fat ******* like me can be good at baseball.
    People will come, Ray.

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. Ohhhhhhhh, people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Yeah, seems like Inty is on a completely different time schedule than most of us, so we only manage to go one answer per day. This could take a while.

    Baseball is a great answer. Keep in mind htat the people surveyed are Americans. Also keep in mind that baseball's ultimate icon, Babe Ruth, was, well, fat.

    And also keep in mind that Tischfußball, or Foozball as Americans call it, is a game, not a sport.

    And yes, we're still up. It's corran's turn. If he answers correctly, you'd be up again.

    that's a bit scary... tischfussball is serious business, mr yankee sir, if you have ever seen absolute giganten, which i trust you have or will do immediately anyway.

    i kinda figured that i wouldn't be very good figuring out what counts as american pastimes for fat people what with not being american in the first place and not having much to do with that great nation.

    ahem.

    i would not like to be up next because i don't know what to say!!!!!!!:eek: please spare me!!!!! :_| etc etc

    frared out.

    if someone repeats an answer, then surely that should count? it then provides a penalty for people who aren't following things closely enough.

    It should be a 2 hour time penalty.
