NY Spelling Bee 11-11-20 final

The streak continues! Three days straight of a no-genius finish. With a stuffy head (I swear it’s allergies?) and heavy heart and my eyelids fighting gravity to get this out before midnight, I bring you this blog post.

AROAR is a real word. They have left it out in the past, and it’s not in this one.

Yesterday I missed some real easy ones.

CHILDHOOD, wait, that’s it. I thought the list would be longer.

CICHLID: A freshwater fish of a large tropical family (Cichlidae) which includes the angelfishes, discuses, mouthbrooders, and tilapia. I’m never going to remember this.
GODHOOD: Divinity? I’m guessing it’s next to CLEANHOOD.
HOODOO: A run of bad luck associated with a particular person, group, or activity.

And for today!

Final score: 35 words for 114 points.
Genius minimum: 159 points.
First word: DRAGON
Real first word: PORN
Pangram: GRANDPOP

Lived out in Mayfield with my grandpop

Missed opportunity: AROAR

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
