2008 Lyrics Winner | 07/20/08
Due to an unforeseen glitch in the highly-complicated scoring system, we had to postpone declaring the winner of the 2008 Lyrics Challenge. Had an entry appeared on Friday, you would have seen that Kathy Smith was our tie-breaking winner! She got all of the questions right and while Anna's tie-breaking story was, for my dollar, a little bit funnier, it was first and foremost a lyrics challenge. Additionally, I mis-scored Rebecca's and Brian never sent me his tie-breaker. I think Anna's story was funny enough to merit reprinting so here it is:
So my sisters and I are all standing around talking, and my one sister Emily is lamenting how each of us seem to have something that we're good at and she feels like she doesn't have anything but maybe being good at sports. So she says "yeah it's not fair, Jen has good business sense and Julie is creative, and Anna and Becca are good at academics...I'm just the dumb JOCKEY." She doesn't ride horses...
