SPORTS MASCOTS WP

I really enjoyed this one. I'll have to post more after the puzzle is over, but thanks for a lot of fun!

One of my favorite puzzles written by an editor. Challenging and fun - what more can you ask for?

Very, very fine puzzle.

Kudos, kudos, kudos.

Thank you.

Had to hurry, but still made top ten. (It'll be years till I can match the likes of you geniuses (Donna, e.g who solve these things with 10 or 15 letters max - and maybe never)

Not that one - it spanked me. And not in a good way.

It was a well constructed and thought out puzzle, but anything about US sports may as well be written in Swahili to me. Having said that, i've been struggling this month with the WP's anyway, i always enjoy trying them though.

Fortunately the author didn't know anything about cricket, Dave.

Collioure

When I left England they did not have sports mascots. They DID have the ladies who walked round the ring between rounds in boxing but they had not started wearing pajamas to play cricket.

Well, the English do play a mean game of rugby, embarrassing the French at Twickenham last Sunday. The rugby teams in the UK and Ireland seem to have mascots, but not here in France.

One reason I loved this one is that I got a phrase that mentioned the San Diego Chicken! Woo hoo! My hometown is San Diego. The phrases were challenging and interesting. For some reason, this was my favorite:

baseballs mr met moonlights in ads for the new york city transit authority

Maybe it's because I liked the way the phrase sounded. Or maybe because I envisioned Mr. Met and wonder how anyone can walk around in that costume. Thanks again!
