You should really accept "Football player" for Pelé, Ronaldo, and David Beckham; otherwise non-Americans will be supremely irritated.

That's like saying 'musician' should work for Ray Charles or Artist for Picasso. They are technically right, but not what the creator had in mind. So deal with it.

Not that it's a big deal, but Billy Graham and Billy Sunday weren't really pastors. Both Graham and Sunday were on the circuit and weren't dedicated to one body congregation like a pastor would be.

Did you notice that only 6 of the 60 people mentioned as examples are female? Women make up 51% of the population, yet just 10% of your professionals. That is creepy weird in 2015. It sends a subliminal message you may not be aware of but girls receive this message many times a day. Yet almost no man wants a wife or daughter who lacks a profession. They need a message of inclusion. We all do... Also, Dershowitz, et al, are defense attorneys. If it's just lawyers, you might include an attorney general, prosecutor, politician, entrepreneur, aujthor, or someone like the first lady or former first lady, Hilary Clinton, as well. How about historical examples, such as Thomas Jefferson, (I'd say John Adams, but he was the defense attorney for the soldiers accused in the Boston Massacre LOL), or Abraham Lincoln. Three MALE defense attorneys are a weird choice for the general title of "lawyer." Great quiz tho.

It's not the Quizmaster's fault that men are far more famous in these professions. The women that are currently in there are probably in there just for diversity. Sofia Coppola instead of Francis Ford Coppola? The point of the quiz is to give clues that people will know, not preach diversity. Very few people would know any female boxers or footballers. Including politicians who used to be lawyers would be confusing.

Have a strong family unit, and your daughters will be influenced by you, not by TV, magazines or other ridiculous sources. If your daughters draw their identity from silly things like that, you're doing something really wrong as a parent.

Difficult one for non-Americans. Watch the movie, "All the President's Men" if you want to know who Bob Woodward is. He and Carl Bernstein are the Washington Post reporters who pushed the Watergate scandal that brought down President Nixon. Mencken was a reporter in the first half of the 20th century and was probably best known for his reporting of the Scopes trial. I never heard of Seymour Hersh, but according to Wikipedia he is the reporter who exposed the My Lai massacre and coverup during the Vietnam war, and is also the one who reported on the US military's torture of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison.

While Ray Charles was a pianist, he was more famously known as a jazz musician/artist. This clue threw me off. I guess if I knew the other two pianists, I would have gotten the correct answer.

Glenn Gould and Lang Lang are classical musicians. Ray Charles is a jazz-influenced pop musician who also made a country album. What connects all three people? The piano.
