Have you caught Olympic Fever yet? Yes? Good. No Olympic-themed puzzle today, though. (Okay, maybe a clue or two just to see if you’ve been paying attention.) We’re freewheeling it today.
How about this controversy with NBC spoiling the results for some events by withholding them for primetime airing but still talking about the results? (Among other transgressions, of course. Ryan Seacrest, what are you doing?) I’m trying to have these puzzles be relatable for some time beyond original publication, so #NBCfail isn’t in this grid. But who knows? Maybe they’ll try to move Jay Leno to 10 Eastern again. This could easily be a recurring hashtag, based on what I’ve seen as far as fall promos go.
In the world of crossword competition, best of luck to Lollapuzzoola 5 competitors tomorrow – I’m playing in the “highly competitive” Solve at Home Division. Join me, perhaps? A big thank you in advance goes out to Angela “PuzzleGirl” Halsted for bringing a stack of copies of this puzzle to LP5 as a freebie giveaway. She’s very awesome. Don’t forget to share the puzzle yourself.
