Just glad that I can participate. Last year I never had a chance with Stinky Pete and Queen Jeff...

Hints for the remaining 2 names:

1. It's a fairly important Central American country that had a lot going on around the turn of the 20th century.
2. If you are in a drought you wish there was one of these.

The Rainmakers?

The Red Hot Chiles?


1 for 2 - Rainmakers is correct.

Final Jeopardy clue. Teddy Roosevelt cut through this country where others failed but I am sure the workers are glad there was only one of them.

It would have to be some variation of Panama.

It wasn't in the form of a question but sure...

PanamaS

So to recap:

Colts, White Stockings, Orphans, Panamas, Rainmakers, Spuds, Trojans and Zephyrs.

Side note, the calendar uses a "," before and in that sentence. That bugs me.

If you are going to pay attention to the Calendar grammar this year, two things will happen:

1) I will be vindicated for all of last year's run-on sentences.

2) You will go crazy!
Please don't feed the psychos.

1. I will vouch for that...heck today's Trivia is one giant run on sentence.
2. I am probably already crazy.
