I recently watched "Major League". It's a really good movie. And I love the opening song by Randy Newman about the Cuyahoga River Fire.

In my top 5 sports movies ever. If you've never watched part 2 do yourself a favor and skip it.

Harriet Beecher Stowe was a Connecticut native who moved to Ohio as an adult, wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin as a resident of Brunswick, Maine, moved to Florida and was an early promoter for its development. She settled back in Connecticut as a neighbor of Mark Twain and lived out her life in senility to the point of rewriting the novel without realizing she had previously written it.

That's my pedantic point and I know everyone will say, "but yeah she was technically an Ohio resident for part of her life before that" even though she wasn't raised there nor famous yet.

Never heard Cincinnati called the Queen City. I've always only known the Queen City as Charlotte.

I think Buffalo is also the Queen City. There seems to be a lot of them, for a country that was never a monarchy.

That V clue is horribly generic and could be used for any state. Try better next time please.

1. Stop being so rude

2. Ohio is the state with the 2nd most presidents, so your argument doesn't make any sense. Please be nicer to people in the future.

Why does that Kent State clue continually say there were four protesters? Two of them were definitively NOT protesters.
