Puzzle #82 – Finishing First

If you’re like me, you’ve got Olympic Fever already! If this puzzle isn’t enough for you, check out this puzzle from last year. It’s even more overtly Olympics-based!

And if that’s not enough for you, head over to Evan Birnholz’s new crossword site, Devil Cross. Warning: some clues/answers are even LSFW than my puzzles. (I’m looking at you, 22-Across.) Give it a go, will ya?

Finally, I received a request last week to remove the spaces from file names here. I’m trying that out with this puzzle. Let me know if that’s working better for you.

    That’s a little better. For some reason my Chrome renames the file to nf0082.txt (yours is not the only site that does that) which still requires me to rename it before opening, but at least it’s a distinct filename each time instead of “Puzzle”, and maybe I can suggest to the author of my preferred app that they support opening .txt files.

    Thanks for the plug, Neville! And I hope one day when that website is well-known enough, people won’t need a LSFW warning. It IS called Devil Cross, so people should expect at least a little bit of evil.

    Nice job — 62-Across is the best one. I did not know 8-Down but got it right through crosses — the only way I know anything about that game is through Super Smash Bros. Still, it’s appropriate with 11-Down, no?
