Not to be a one-upper, but I got magi. That's the first thing that came to my mind, and I'm terrible at most of the quizzes. I realize that the hymn is "We Three Kings," among other names for them, but the only term I remember for this instance is Gifts of the Magi.

They were astrologers, which is why they were paying attention to the "star" that led them to Herod.

It's always fun to learn those little Amrican cultural things that you don't know about as a foreigner. I never knew there was an acronym to remember to colors of the rainbow in English. And this drove home that I should probably try to learn the national anthems lyrics as well.

I've heard both but didn't remember to try "eye". Come to think of it, the Estonian equivalent has "eyes" in plural as well.

Lands can be kingdoms. Not calling it a 'kingdom' does not exclude a land from being a kingdom. Plus that is how the saying goes. Our one-eyed friend could easily be the president of the republic of the blind or the jefe of the blind cartel- but Quizmaster has it right on this one.

The War of the Worlds radio broadcast wasn't a hoax, it was simply a dramatisation that some listeners thought was real because of Welles' realistic format.

I was hoping someone noticed this! They didn't lie to anyone, it's just that people at that time were a bit more unfamiliar with fiction, apparently.

The last half inning of baseball could just as easily be the top of the ninth, if the home team is winning. You might want to specify that the bottom of the ninth is played only if the visiting team is winning or the game is tied.

Fair enough - but what about a rainout? Then it's the top of the 4th (if the home team is winning) or the bottom of the 4th (if the visiting team is winning). Just kidding, of course.
