NYT Spelling Bee 10-10-21 final

Wow this Spelling Bee took a long time. I was going to give up when I had about 130 points, but I continued going. I got there at 11:09pm. Whew. Also first pitch for the Dodgers-Giants game is scheduled for 6:37 tomorrow evening. After Saturday night’s game, these two home games may be exciting!!!

Yesterday I missed EGGPLANT, ENGAGE, GALA, GALL, GLEN, GNAT, LEGATE, and TEENAGE.

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).
