Title: Sat. 3/23 Joe DiPietro
Post by: magus on March 23, 2013, 10:29:25 AM
THEME:   none, yet 32 blocks which is above par for Saturday
Sports figures   STATS   
Contests with no ultimate winner, hopefully   ARMSRACE [that depends on one's political opinion.  If one is a John Lennon "one world" dreamer, perhaps.  If one is an American, no.  In any event, arms races do have winners: who has the best weapons wins and is least likely to be attacked.]   
Inclined to believe   OFTHENOTION [I am of the notion that this clue and the last clue are weak; I am not "inclined," which suggests some tentativity.]   
Don't know why ELIOT was clued by Spitzer, a disgraced politician, when there are so many better clues available involving T.S. Eliot.   
RATING:     :'(
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
