NYT Spelling Bee 10-18-21 final

Ugh the Dodgers lost yesterday after blowing a 2-0 lead and then a 4-2 lead. I’m super annoyed at this 0-2. It should be 2-0.

Yesterday I missed INDUCTEE (the second pangram), DEDUCE, DUETTED, DUNE, DUNNED, NUDE (despite having gotten DENUDE, DENUDED, and NUDIE), TUTTED, TUTTI, UNDID, UNEDITED, UNIT, and UNNEEDED.

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).
