NYT Spelling Bee 10-12-21 final

By the time this post goes out, we’ll know the result of the Dodgers-Giants game. I really want the Dodgers to win. It’s hard for me to revel in the World Series win last year because the season was trash. It was abbreviated, players sat out, and Rob Manfred was being a terrible commissioner at every turn. That last one hasn’t changed, but this year was tremendous. And finishing one game back of the Giants kinda shows why the games early in the season DO count. The Giants were 16-10 in September, and the Dodgers were 16-11.

Yesterday I missed AFRO, FALOFF, FARRO, FILLIAL, FLAIL, FOLIC, FOLIO, and FROLIC.

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).
