solved by: Steve West, Amy Austin, Mike Eberhart, Dave Mitzman, Jerry Mathis, Megan Baxter, Christine Marie Doiron, and Marc Kelley

player landmarks: This was the first goo solved by Jerry Mathis.

Incorrect guesses included Joey Lawrence, Scott Peterson, Heath Ledger, Ryan Philippe, and two for James Dreyfus.
