Round 1: SONG LYRICS

But he BANKRUPTs near $2,500 right out of the gate. Second, Aimee calls up a $1K pair of S’s, two I’s, a $1,300 pair of N’s, and three E’s. She follows w/ a $1,300 pair of T’s, an O, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to lose $2,850. Third, Ally takes a $700 B, a $650 L and a $2,500 M before we’ve displayed…

I T ‘ S / B E E N
S _ _ _ / _
L O N _ / T I M E

…she solves “IT’S BEEN SUCH A LONG TIME” from “Foreplay/Long Time” by Boston for $3,850.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Ally’s opponents)

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Here goes Aimee w/ an $1,100 pair of S’s, three E’s, four T’s for that SS, but she then repeats the E to likely squander $8,600 cash & SS. Ally secondly digs up a $550 T, a $900 H, A and I singles, a $550 R, a $900 D, and two O’s to clean out the vowel shop. But after a $600 X, the BANKRUPT near TD steals her $2,750. Billy then puts up a $650 L and two N’s for that 1/2 CAR near $900…

L E T ‘ S / P A I N T
T H E / T O _ N
R E D
S O X

He says “LET’S PAINT THE TOWN RED SOX” to be back in 1st by $800.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Ally
SOLE DQ: Aimee’s E repeat

Billy: $4,650/Aimee: ZIP/Ally: $3,850

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Ally insta-BANKRUPTs next to $650. Second in Billy’s future are four N’s for $2,200, three I’s, two G’s for the other 1/2 CAR, five E’s, a $1K pair of T’s, but then a bad vowel in O. Third for Aimee are two R’s to take the Fiesta out of play (she gives her plate to Pat upon request), two A’s to wipe out the vowel shop, an H for the GT, a FP S, a $900 S, and an $1,100 pair of D’s before she tries to solve all of this…

S P E N D I N G / T H E
E N T I R E / D A _
R E _ A _ I N G

…she’s won her first $4,750 in cash & GT, but she’ll also be SPENDING THE ENTIRE DAY RELAXING at the Anse Chastanet ST. LUCIA.

SOLE DUD: O (Billy)
INSTA-BANKRUPT: Ally

Billy: $4,650/Aimee: $14,250 cash & prizes/Ally: $3,850

Round 4: THING

Next on her hit list are a $1,300 pair of R’s, a $5K S, two E’s, a $1K pair of T’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to toss away $7,050. After Billy LaTs out…

_ _ – _ T – _ _ _ R S E _ _
_ R _ _ E _ T

…it’s a $1,500 FS. The man buys three O’s for free on his next turn…

_ O – _ T – _ O _ R S E L _

    One-round victory? Usually not a good sign.

    Not a good show. BR loss streak is now 3. If that BR loss continues, we could be in danger of a Wipeout

      …and if that BR shutout for this week does occur, it’s gonna refuel my worries and fears of a double-digit losing streak.
