I'd have loved to spell out S-P-O-R-C-L-E in full, but I couldn't come up with "E" images to fit the category. Suggestions?
Dec 28th, 2012 at 05:38 GMT
For the music E, Everclear and Kathleen Edwards released albums this year. There's also Ellie Golding who was a bigger seller, but its her first name that begins with E. Maybe Edwin Encarnacion or Monta Ellis or Patrik Elias for the sports E. Not big names, but all had good years. For the news E, you could use the presidential Election.
Dec 28th, 2012 at 17:50 GMT
Yeah, E for Election makes the most sense (maybe an electoral map). As for sports, one thought might be to switch the Spain image to E and call it EURO, although that leaves you with a different (perhaps easier) problem (SAINTS bountygate, maybe). The only other lame suggestion I could think of was Eli Manning, but that doesn't quite work.

I like the idea of switching Spain to "E" for either Espana or Euro, and I'd prefer Elizabeth II's diamond jubilee for the news part. But what can I use for E in music? I'm a Kathleen Edwards fan, (listen to Change the Sheets or I Make the Dough, You Get the Glory - sublime!) but I doubt even 1% of Sporclers would recognize her. Would El Camino be too big a cheat?
Dec 28th, 2012 at 22:38 GMT
Well, Danny Elfman did do the MIB3 soundtrack. Not sure if that qualifies as sporcleworthy or not. And Elizabeth would be an improvement on Election, what with both candidates there already. Also, Maria SHARAPOVA won the career grand slam this year at the French...

For the purposes of this quiz, I think El Camino would be fine. It was released in Dec. 2011, but had 3 singles off it released in 2012. However, if the release date (or the fact that it is an album title not an artist's name) is an issue, you could also "cheat" by going with Eminem for his appearance on Rihanna's single "Numb" which was released last month.

For news, as stated above - "Electoral Map" (with a little picture of one of those once ubiquitous blue and red suckers, election could be an alternate answer), "Equestrian" (with a picture of a horse in the Olympics, it was big in the Olympics because of Ann Romney's horse, Rafalka, as well as for having a relative of the royal family competing, and for the most problematic category (album) a picture of absolutely nothing which would represent an "e-album" (simply typing the letter "e" could be sufficient for this answer) The world of music continues to shift towards purely electronic downloads. I still have hundreds of LPs with nice large pictures on the covers and backs and with record sleeves and inserts. Album art received a serious hit when CDs replaced LPs. Electronic Downloading has made that size even smaller, if not non-existent in many music-listening formats. You could also make your answer - "electronic album downloads" while once again having a simple "e" as an alternate answer.

Is it just me, or does Michael Phelps look like he has a beard?
Dec 31st, 2012 at 02:52 GMT
Yeah, Michael Phelps looks a little like Santa with his beard.

its a stretch but the Olympics were in "ENGLAND"
