FYI, we don’t reveal the answer outright but hint at it. It is okay to give possible wrong answers.

Any comments with the actual answer will be deleted. Also note that the first 11 words of our comments show up on the homepage sidebar so a short observation before your hint is best. Example: I would bet a lot on this category unless I was (in the hole– or ?)

All comments and predictions on the CotD posts are deleted after about a week, so be fearless!

An Old Category: This category was called “Of the Kalahari.” It’s from the last round of the match played on 11/25/2003.

$800: The hartebeest & tsessebe are 2 of these animals you may see bounding gracefully across the plain
$1200: A depression between these “hills”, which can be a mile long & 200′ high, is called a straat, “street”
$1,600 (DD $1000): Using watering holes, this Scot struggled across the Kalahari in 1849
$2000: The Kalahari covers portions of Botswana, South Africa, and this country show

    Today’s quote is very true imo. As for the CotD my best guess is the clue is indicating that the name originated from the native american language which leads me to Q because of the description of the location. Won’t be the first or last time I’m wrong.
