Weekend Genius Challenge #9 winner:

Kate jumped right on our latest Weekend Genius Challenge and won it with the first guess. While several others chimed in with perfectly plausible answers, the one we were looking for was "NBA teams." The question:

California has four, Texas has three, Florida has two, and New York has one. What are they?

California is home to the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Sacramento Kings. In Texas, you can find the Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs. Florida has the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic. And New York is home to the New York Knicks (although some fans have begun rooting for the New Jersey Nets).

You players continue to astound me with your smarts. Looks like we'll have to start making the challenges more difficult! Join us next Saturday morning for a new Weekend Genius Challenge.
