    Ok Andy, I try my ball from TIROL (not TYROL) one more time: 1 correct.

    Possible wrong answer: Kirk Douglas.

  3. john blahuta | June 6, 2017 at 3:36 pm |

    Well, at least I was right with 1 correct. So now I have to work on the possible wrong answers. Still, the price for the ball just went up slightly……

    The winner wins $14,000 in one day for two Tuesdays in a row.

    • Dal Higbee | June 6, 2017 at 5:57 pm |

      Andy, how often does it occur when the winner of a game wins the same amount of money on two same weekdays in a row?

  5. Dal Higbee | June 6, 2017 at 8:53 pm |

    You usually know these things, Andy.

    • I usually have a large flat file full of data that is set up to provide me with the numbers.

      This is not a statistic that my flat file is currently set up to track.

  6. Georgette B. Bohr | June 7, 2017 at 8:37 pm |

    The answers are important to me and I wondered if a crawl could give the answer. Actually I would vote for all the answers be noted on the screen, Is that far out? I love the program and would really love to know all the answers.
