Round 1: WAYD? (golf wipe)

Joe kicks off w/ two G’s for the WC, two I’s and the obvious three N’s for $2,100, but after his buy of three O’s, the sole dud vowel of E stops him. Second, Tracy spins her way to the MDW’s left side. Third, Peter calls up a $600 R, but then S for sorry while on TD. After Joe says his second straight dud of T, Tracy lights up a $600 L and a $500 C before she sees…

_ _ R _ I N G / _ _ / &
C O O L I N G / _ O _ N

…she’s WARMING UP & COOLING DOWN for $1,100.

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Tracy first takes an $800 T, five E’s, three $650 R’s, a $900 H and two A’s, followed by a $700 S, a FP O, two TD B’s, and the other two vowels. Unfortunately, her next spin’s the other MDW BANKRUPT to forfeit $10,350; ouch. Peter next picks up said sparkly green wedge w/ a Q, but then squanders his turn w/ an L while on the gift tag. Joe then fills in two N’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900, a $550 G, a $500 D, and a $550 C to complete the board…

PP/Express Round: EVENT

Peter begins his road to redemption w/ two N’s for the other 1/2 CAR, two I’s, but then the LaT. Second, Joe strikes out w/ the T for the second time tonight. Third for Tracy are a $600 G, an E, but then L for loss. Peter’s second turn sees him putting up three R’s for $2,100, buying to U’s, but then BANKRUPTing near $650 to give up $2,600 and his plate. Joe then hits the other one to take the Versa out of play and surrender his WC. Next for Tracy are two $800 S’s, O and A buys (the latter via FP), a $500 C, and a D and two Y’s at $900 a pop…

Category: THING
About 1/3 of the answer to start…

_ _ _ T _

CBMO gives her a run of letters in the bottom word (and my guess of FINAL PHOTO is wrong)…

_ _ N _ L

…but she doesn’t even get the second word right w/ BOOTS; it was VINYL BOOTH and she loses the $32K.
