    Did it in 2:18. Should've been around 1:55, but I had a brain cramp and left off Idaho and Montana at first.

    I can't type that fast.

    did it in 3:10. Geographically is the way to go. define regions and picture the map.

    I did it in 2:80 and would have been faster if I could type with fewer spelling errors. I actually did it without singing the afore mentioned song. I started in NE where all the small states are and then just moved from N to S and back up again like I was using a paintbrush to paint the states on the map. The only area where it gets a little tricky is for the Northwest Ordinance States and Mississippi-Alabama, because they line up better horizontally than vertically.

    I had 49 with about three minutes to go, but forgot Maryland. I finally resorted to going through professional sports teams, and when I got to the Orioles, I finally had it!

    Hey we did the same thing. I finally got nebraska and then maryland with 1:30 to go. I tried to remember the song but it wasn't too helpful.

    I did it with 8:08 remaining.

    I learned them all in a song for a 5th grade musical.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'm really bad with geography... and remembering it... I had no idea how to spell Connecticut. That's probably really sad.

    6:57 left. Not bad, not as good as I once was.

    Do you guys try to cross the map, or do them alphabetically?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
