WoF Recap: May 22, 2017

Thanks to JP for covering Chicago week while I was away. I’m back now to cover the remaining three weeks of this season. This week, it’s a salute to Beantown.

EPISODE #6616: GREAT AMERICAN CITIES (BOSTON)

$1K Tossup: LANDMARK

_ _ N _ _ Y
_ _ _ _

Ross just scored a quick HR w/ FENWAY PARK. He’s not the only man on this first MA panel of the week…

Ross Metherton: office coord. for a municipal government office from Winthrop

Steve Coffey: financial planner w/ his sister from Newton Center

Jeanie Connelly: commercial lender for bank from Princeton

$2K Tossup: STAR & ROLE

_ A _ T / _ A M _ N / _ S
_ _ _ O N / _ _ U _ _ _

Steve blanks out.

_ A _ T / _ A M _ N / _ S
J _ _ O N / _ _ U _ _ _

Ross triples up w/ MATT DAMON AS JASON BOURNE.

TRIP WEDGE: Florida courtesy of DRAPER worth $6K

Week Long Gift Tag: Jordan’s Furniture (a New England retail company)

Round 1: HEADLINE

He starts w/ a $1,200 pair of T’s, only to lose it right back to the MDW’s left side. Second, Steve picks up the GT w/ an N, buys four E’s, but loses his turn w/ an A purchase. Third, Jeanie LaTs out. Back to Ross who says three R’s for the WC, four I’s, a $1,300 pair of C’s, a $600 D, and two O’s to clean out the vowels before he sees…

I N C R E D I _ _ E
O _ E R T I _ E
_ I C T O R _

…we all remember that INCREDIBLE OVERTIME VICTORY by the Patriots and he has solved for another $2,900.

SOLE DUD: A (Steve)
SOLE LaT: Jeanie
SOLE BANKRUPT: Ross

Ross: $5,900 WC/Others: $0 each

 

Mystery/Crossword Round: SNOW ______

Steve’s up first w/ a $500 N, an A, a $700 C, two O’s, and the same number of E’s, but his next call of T is no good. Jeanie secondly picks off two L’s on the MW near LaT and under that is…$$$. But she then says F for flunk on TD. Ross thirdly tries a $500 S, a $600 P and the last vowel of I via FP, but next is R for roadblock on the 1/2 CAR near $600. Steve then inserts an $800 M, two B’s on the same 1/2 CAR, and a $500 G to complete the grid…

—   — —    (C)   –  — (P)
—  —   (M)(O)(B)(I)(L)(E)
—  —   —   (N) —  — (A)
(G)(L)(O)(B)(E)  — – (S)

…and score his first $2,750.

DUDS: T (Steve), J (Jeanie), R (Ross)

Steve: $2,750 1/2 CAR/Jeanie: $0/Ross: $5,900 WC

 

PP/Express Round: EVENT

Jeanie wastes a turn w/ the MDW’s other BANKRUPT. Second in Ross’ direction are a $650 T, but then S for sorry. After Steve LaTs out, Jeanie proceeds to put up a $1,300 pair of H’s, two E’s and A’s, but the R fails somebody again. Ross then uncovers a $1K pair of L’s, an O, and two I’s to finish off the vowels…

T H E / I _ E A L
H O L I _ A _

…he’s won another $1,150 and THE IDEAL HOLIDAY — the caravan.com COSTA RICA TOUR.

DUDS: S (Ross), R (Jeanie)
SOLE LaT: Steve
INSTA-BANKRUPT: Jeanie

Steve: $2,750/Jeanie: NO LUCK/Ross: $13,050 cash & tour WC

 

$3K Tossup: WAYD?

_ L A _ I N G / F O R
_ E _ P _

Ross knows that he and the other man were PLAYING FOR KEEPS.

Speed-Up: PHRASE

We have a $1,650 FS to start the week. Ross digs up five S’s to start, but he stops himself after the second word. One T and two L’s later…

S _ _ _ T / S _ _ L L
_ _ / S _ _ _ _ S S

Jeanie finally has the SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS for her only $3,300 on the night.

FINAL SCORES
Steve: $2,750/Jeanie: $3,300/Ross: $16,050 cash & tour WC

GT: $22,100
BANKRUPT TRASH: $1,200

 

$100K Bonus Round
In play this week is a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro. Ross lands on the M of GAME.

Category: THING
This one-wordy starts as…

_ _ T _ _ _ _ R _

PMDA and B only give him the first two letters of the answer…

P A T _ _ _ _ R _

He apparently doesn’t do quilting, so he can’t solve PATCHWORK for $40K.

$5K SPIN ID: MP0893273

MY RATING: 6

    Boston episode day 1: Disappointing start to be the case. $40K loss in the BR was the low. Ross needed the W and H to have a shot at it

    My rating: 6
