        Another score for Mikey!
        • whimsy 24:51 · 2 months ago
          "Hey! Something's missing.....Oh, never mind" I fall for it every time! Thanks for the fun puzzle, Mikey!
          • woozy 🤓22:11 · 2 months ago
            Oh... is the grid supposed to look like a hockey mask? And if we extend the clues down to include TOUCH is it supposed to look like "the Punisher" face mask?
            • woozy 🤓22:11 · 2 months ago
              "so I have all these terms that end with TOUCH going down, so if I take the first letters I get D, S, O, and .... oh......"

                                  Never got to this until today but glad I did. I solved the Grid (which was a lot more difficult than the meta) and then misread the prompt. I got the 6 touches and figured they were touch downs so I took the first letters of the clues/answers - nothing. Took the numbers of the scores (6, 12, 18, etc OR 7,14,21, etc and got NADA. I added the points (36 or 42) and thought "OHO he is being cagey with the TEAM" and #42 is Jackie Robinson so Dodgers - but that was so tricky and convoluted I thought I had better look on the forum to see any nudges. There were none of course but then I saw DPlass's comment about messing up TEAM and TERM (which I too had done) and it became clear...6 TOUCHES all going DOWN what else could it be. Nice meta and I'll take the solve even if late because I was away for the contest.
