LAT Sun. 7/19 Alan Arbesfeld's Con Job
« on: July 19, 2009, 10:11:23 AM »

Apple variety    IMAC
Screen names, e.g.    USERIDS [I was thinking movies]
Key contraction    OER [Francis Scott Key]
Place to find hit records?    BOXSCORE
Switch back?   EROO [back meaning end of "switch"]
Kurt refusal    NEIN
Top suits    CEOS [I was thinking playing cards]
"Da" or "ja"?   CONSENTABROAD [theme answer: da and ja mean "yes" in Europe]

Why 15 sports references I cannot say, but why did Alan stop there?

HEMEN could have been "ESPN strongman competetors"
CUPS could have been "Stanley and Ryder"
SCOOTER, "Yankee shortstop Rizzuto"
MOOSE, "Yankees Skowron or Musina"
DEAD, "Pitcher's arm complaint"
OHIO, "Reds and Indians home"
RICO, "Red Sox All-Star Petrocelli"
DUOS, "Baseball batteries, e.g."
LOPED, "Chased after an easy flyball"
ONONE, "One ___: basketball strategy"
MULE, "Army football mascot"
FINAL, "World Series or Super Bowl, for one"
TEDS, "Baseball's Williams and Simmons"
ROGERS, "Hall of Famer Hornsby"
ATONE, "'The score is tied ___'"
OOO, "Line score of a perfect game"

That's 16 more and sure to drive half of the solvers nuts.

I thought "Scrub sites" were outside ORS.
