    Amazing! I never would've thought of so many forms on my own
    • Ben Zoon constructor · 2022-02-14T21:03:41.472Z
      Same here! Our language runs so deep.

      Love the 17-Down17DSpreaders of shingles?[-------] clue!
      • Ben Zoon constructor · 2022-02-14T21:03:48.780Z
        Thanks!

        Great theme entries, very sneaky!

          Thank you!

          Needed all the crosses for 17A17ALove's new teammate?[----------] and 30A30ALove's competitor?[-------]. Still had fun! What's a FLYINGJ30ALove's competitor?[-------]? Google said "wha?"
          • Ben Zoon constructor · 2022-02-15T04:52:30.917Z
            Flying J and Love's are both major truck stop brands only in the United States. I suppose this is a bit of a localized answer in that sense.

            Very fun theme clues! And I second the comment that 17D17DSpreaders of shingles?[-------] was my favorite non-theme clue; great work!
            • Ben Zoon constructor · 2022-02-18T23:10:04.311Z
              I appreciate it!
            • Aaron 🤓2:50 · 2022-02-19T00:46:56.841Z
              Loved the long answers and theme. 17A17ALove's new teammate?[----------] as the marquee answer was tough not following sports but it was gettable from the crosses.
              • Ben Zoon constructor · 2022-02-19T02:15:19.143Z
                Thanks! Fair criticism

                I like the twist you put on this one! Fortunately I've been around the country enough to see both Loves and Flying J truck stops, so that was one of the easier theme entries for me.
