Mystery Photo Quiz – Superbowl Edition!

Well, after my embarrassingly easy holiday-themed mystery photo quiz, I had considered throwing in the towel. I let all of you down, but most of all, I let myself down. I thought, maybe I’m just not cut out for the dog-eat-dog world of mystery photo quizzes. Maybe I don’t have the intestinal fortitude to succeed in that arena. But then I thought, is that what Vince Lombardi would say? Or would he tell me that I had the stick-to-it-iveness to take it all the way to the big dance?
Since Coach Lombardi is long dead, I guess I’ll never really know what he would have said to me, so I decided to look up some of the things he said to other people and just pretend that he was saying them to me:
“Lil Jenny, in great attempts, it is glorious even to fail.”
“Lil Jenny, it’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.”
“Lil Jenny, teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn’t do it for individual glory. They did it because they loved one another…”
It was really that last one that got me. It was like he was talking right to me! I mean, I’m not doing these photo quizzes for individual glory – I’m doing them because I love you! I love you as much as a bunch of sweaty hulking men wearing face paint and giant shoulder pads have ever loved each other.
And so now, I’m just gonna grab my helmet, brush off my short little pants, get back over there to huddle up and scrimmage out of the pocket with an audible and some play action fakes.
Hut One!
Hut Two!
Hut Three!
Hut Four!
Hut Five!
Hut Six!

    What does it say about me that the only photo I recognized immediately was the last one, a close-up of the Starbucks mermaid? Although four and five look kind of like Fruit Stripe gum and the cover of Fiona Apple’s newest CD, respectively.

    I just sort of stumbled onto here, but I’ll give it a go anyway!
    1-I’m going with the consensus on matches here

    3-A cake pan?
    4-Fruit by the foot?
    5-It’s a plant! Of some sort.
    6-A Mickey Mouse watch! (maybe?)
    7-I have no clue, so the Starbucks lady sounds fine to me
    That was fun (and definitely not easy), Coach would be proud!

    Good old Coach Lombardi – I’m sure he’s looking down on all of you and smiling.
    While I am extremely impressed with everyone’s enthusiasm, creativity and stick-to-it-iveness, no one has correctly guessed all of the answers. So… there’s still time to get in your vote! (Uh, no. No, there are no prizes. But – maybe next time I’ll have a prize – a real good prize! I promise!)

  12. Tracy Lynn Says:

    While I am all for the kind of enthusiam inevitablbly inspired by the mere mention of the name of Coach Lombard, I must admit to being completely hopeless at this sort of thing, even though it makes me feel like I’m letting down the side. *weeping*

  15. shari Says:

    Uh, Jen… not to ignore your excellent photo quiz, but, I did just remember you promised to make your comments remember us (or at least me) as a new year’s resolution.
    ***please, please, please let this distract her from the fact that I am too lacking in imagination to even hazard a guess at her deadly quiz***

  16. sandra Says:

    What if I just tell you that I know ALL of them. You trust me, right?

  17. jenny Says:

    I know the waiting is killing you, but the answers won’t be posted until tomorrow. Well, really, late tonight. But the caliber of responses has renewed my faith in mystery photo quizzes – you have truly risen to the occasion.
    [Oh, and Shari – I thought I gave myself until the end of 2006 to fix the “remember me” problem? It’s either post entries or try to figure out html crap. So which is it? Fine. I’m quitting blogging just so I can take a class in html. I hope you can sleep at night… ;) ]
