FEATURED SS: DICK’S Sporting Goods

Round 1: THING

First up are a $700 T, four E’s, a $600 S, two O’s, two $700 R’s, but then the MDW’s right side to lose $2,200. Second, Emily calls up a $650 Y, two $2,500 N’s, and two I’s to clean out the vowels; she follows w/ two G’s and a V at $500 a pop, but then the same BANKRUPT to forfeit $6,900. Third, Lango takes a $700 L, but she’s BANKRUPTed near TD. Tony then picks a W as in WC and a $600 H…

O V E R W H E L _ I N G
G E N E R O S I T Y

…we have the OVERWHELMING GENEROSITY to give him $1,600.

BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

Emily: $0/Lango: $0/Tony: $4,600

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Emily’s off to a bad start w/ a T call. Second, Lango LaTs out. Third, Tony gives up the WC to the same normal BANKRUPT. Emily next says her second straight dud of S. Lango‘s second turn sees her choosing a $1K pair of N’s, an A, but then D for dummy. Tony follows w/ two R’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, an O, two $600 B’s, two E’s, FPs of I and U and a G while on the MW near LaT. He risks the $1,700 and his plate for…the BANKRUPT. Emily then puts up a $900 K, but she’s shot down by the same MDW BANKRUPT. Lango then inserts the $650 C and V single to complete the board…

K E V I N

B U R G E R

…and win her first $2,050.

Emily: BAD LUCK/Lango: $2,050/Tony: $4,600

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Lango would like an F, but that stands for flunk. Second for Tony are an N for the ticketmaster gift tag, two $500 G’s, two obvious I’s, but then a baddie of O. Third in Emily‘s future are a $1,200 pair of T’s, the remaining vowels of two A’s and three E’s, but then the same normal BANKRUPT to hand over $700. Lango then puts up a $700 M, but the other normal one bites her. Tony then lights up a $2,400 R trio…

R E _ _ A R G I N G
