Very clever and fun to do once I caught on. I'd like to see more of this type.

I know so little about sports but even I was able to get along fairly well on these. I, too, would like to see more along this line.

I can't stand it when I don't catch my mistakes before hitting that button. Cost me 9 moves.....but that is my own stupidity. Great puzzle however.

Is it just me who gets the title of the puzzle printed wrong...the ampersand becomes a question mark.... please bear this in mind future sploofus editors!

And by the way a great quiz; nicely clued as well.

One or two of them were critical for my solving the clue as opposed to that 'doh!' moment you get when you solve the puzzle and work out what the clue meant...

I'm sorry about the ampersand, Garrybl, it was my turn to check puzzles this morning and I mistook Bbear's very specific punctuation for one of the wierd C&P glitches. Bbear's editor let me know I shouldn't have done that, and you caught the puzzle just as I was putting it to rights.

Again, sorry to you, Bbear, and anyone else who may have been confused.

I groaned when I saw the word 'sports' in the WP title but I always like BBear's puzzles and I like the before & after format so I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. If you aren't a huge sports fan and you haven't taken it yet, don't be afraid!

Fun puzzle, I am fairly sure if I had solved them in less moves I would have done better

I haven't taken it yet but I'm still seeing the semicolon and the question mark rather than the ampersand

The first two puzzles were easy to guess because of solid clues.
Made the rest go smoothly- again the clues were very helpful for me.
Wondered about the grammar marks but ignored them anyway.
Sports lovers have a big advantage.

Very entertaining and relaxing puzzle. I was also worried I would utterly bomb, but that was not the case. Thanks!

It's actually supposed to be a semicolon and a question mark. Bbear can explain later.

Noticed a little spelling problem; reported it to the proper authorities.

Enjoyed your puzzle Bbear. Not sure how I lost so many pts ;?

Dammit, got the boot with four of them done and couldn't get back on in time.

Fun while it lasted, though - good puzzle, Bb.

Thanks for playing; it was a blast to make. The title was supposed to be "Sports before...? After", which might have made the clues work a bit better, but alas. Because the "afters" were songs and movies couldn't have done it any other way. But thanks for playing!

REALLY annoying to get bounced out. I didn't have anything for Slick, but I was doing okay and I think I could've managed single digits, maybe just.
