Okay, you managed to get me completely. I managed to miss every single one.

However, I do have to take you to task about #4. By using the word hand in your clue you can't ask me for both hands in my answer.

Just like a crossword puzzle, tense and quantity must match.

Am I right?

Two hands for 10 fingers. Your answer states hand, singular.

C'mon, admit it, I got you for once.

I got the first 4 correct, but I bombed on the rest.

I'm not that into basketball, but Magic Johnson was fairly easy to come up with.

I HATE boxing, but as soon as I read that one I thought, "Didn't Leon Spinks have a brother named Larry?" Well, no he didn't, his brother's name is Michael, but the non-existent Larry is the one who gave me the right answer!

Shot put was an educated guess.

I don't know if correct reasoning gave me the answer to #4, but I remember hearing about how we are able to remember numbers if they are bunched together, which is why we do phone numbers the way we do, with 3 digits in the prefix and 4 in the last part.

I didn't pay attention to the word "Swiss" in the next one and guessed Freud (Austrian) and like I said, it was downhill from there!

You didn't have to know them. You just had to remember fake brothers like I did!

That only works for me when someone's jersey number is 7...otherwise I have no luck.

Poor Shrek was all excited about the two football games today and I didn't really care...one of these days he will remember that and not try to engage me in sports talk.

That was one good thing about my dad. We never lost the TV to sports. He hates sports. He just doesn't see the sense in them. He didn't mind playing some sports in school, and he liked to water ski and to go hunting, but to watch sports? Forget it. The only sports events I can remember him ever watching were the Olympics because we watched them. He enjoyed them, but I doubt he would have ever turned them on himself.

P.S. My 21 day Daniel Fast started about an hour ago. The last thing I had before it started was two cups of the Wild Huckleberry White Hot Chocolate that you sent us. It was good! Now I am drinking water.

I hope you finished the chocolate bar, so it won't be calling to you.

Good luck, I hope it works for you!
