A funny quip from Earl, after finding the first Daily Double: “I feel like I’m catching Pokemon!”
Heartbreak for Carmen on the last Daily Double: “Practicing before the 2010 games, an Austrian on his back in this event was clocked going nearly 96 mph” – he said “What is two-man luge”; the “two man” was too much information, making the response incorrect.

The scoreboard puzzle is Greg Norman’s collapse in the 1996 Masters shooting a 78 on the final day to lose to Nick Faldo.
I went down the Olympics and the Brett Favre paths. Forgot about Shark’s collapse. Thank you!
I thought it would be something in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, but I found nothing. I don’t know much about professional golf, so the scoreboard puzzle referring to that is interesting to me.
Mark Barrett upthread is a noted Vikings fan so I was really hoping that the scoreboard puzzle was Packers & Favre-related. Sadly, the number 78 did not relate and I got stuck.
