    You should get credit for all the NE states by just typing New England

    Same thing here, except it was Kansas for me. Took me about 6 minutes to go through the entire map in my head and dwindled my time from 8 remaining to only 2 remaining.

    I won a lot of bar bets with this question. A few beers addles ones concentration.

    All my kids learned that state song. They'd perform it at school music functions (and wear like a vest brown grocery bags with the state flower, crest, motto, etc. on it).

    My youngest can also do them in reverse-alphabetical order.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I think using the song is cheating. That proves you know the song, not the states.

    The only "true" competitors here are the ones with the mental maps

    But can you do capital cities as well?

    Thanks, Yachtzee. I had completely forgotten the name of it.\

    Here's a link for all you plebians who need to learn it:

    The lyrics kind of remind me of Borat's version of the Khazak national anthem.

    My freshman History teacher made us learn to draw a map of the U.S. During my senior year in high school, a bunch of us visited him, and he asked us to draw the map again to see what we remembered. My map included things like "East Virginia" and a large section of unexplored territory.

    5 flat. I got stuck on Michigan. Comes from a lifetime of being an Ohio State fan, I guess.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I forgot Rhode Island, Nevada, Wyoming. All flyover states to me.

    Got all of them with 1:14 to spare. I couldn't think of New Jersey for some reason.

    The real contest would be naming all the capitals in 10 minutes.

    I left out West Virginia, a state I've been to at least a dozen times to visit family. How in the world did I leave off a border state? Man, I'm dumb.
