NYT Spelling Bee 1-4-21 final

Hello from Day 46 of the current California COVID constant curfew. It’s only Monday, but it feels like this week is going by so quickly. If at least 40 people explain that to me by Wednesday, January 6, 2021, one of you will be selected to win a #raabidfun T-shirt. Winner will get a one-time-use code to use on my Etsy store. Drawing open only to entrants who are both in the USA and over the age of 18.

Yesterday I missed OOMPH, POEM, and POOH as easier ones.

Meatier Misses

OHMAGE: Electrical resistance as expressed in ohms. Oh! It’s not an alternate spelling of HOMAGE. It’s a word pronounced OHWM-idge.
OOMPAH: Used to refer to the rhythmical sound of deep-toned brass instruments in a band.
OPAH: A large deep-bodied fish with a deep blue back, silvery belly, and crimson fins, living in deep oceanic waters.

Three papas and three opahs. I won’t tell you which are which.

POME: A fruit consisting of a fleshy enlarged receptacle and a tough central core containing the seeds, e.g., an apple or pear.

Today’s summary

Final score: 22 words for 95 points.
Genius minimum: 92 points.
First word: CHAIN
Pangram: HANDICAP

Not a lot of Cannondale fans out there, I guess.

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).
