Title: LAT Thu. 3/24 Gagliardo & Burnikel
Post by: magus on March 24, 2011, 08:53:58 AM

Field call   CAW [I thought sports]
Cause of star wars?   EGOS [note lower case]
Sally in space   RIDE

Gabrielle REECE  [“volley ball great”?  Who is a curling great?]

Symbol of honesty   ABE [he’s the personification of honesty, not a symbol]
Top server   ACER [I’m tired of pointing out that a tennis player is not ever referred to as an acer!  I guess it’s a case of monkey see, monkey do.  At any rate, constructors must read the Forum on a daily basis to learn from the master. Ignoring a magus shows weak-mindedness and a certain lack of breeding.  But getting back to ACER, I make the following pronouncement: there are two and only two acceptable clues for the word: one referring to the computer giant; the other to the maple genus.  (Having grown up in the NYC housing projects, I am great friends with Vinny the Enforcer who will visit any constructors who violate this rule.)]

;D ;D
Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
