• • •I am seeing lots of football right now (with both Copa The united states and UEFA European Championship occurring these days) and I also nonetheless couldn't produce RAMOS. I did not see "Brooklyn, " but We watched your whole interview Colbert did with Saoirse RONAN but still could not produce the woman title. Those two brands alone taken into account 50% of trouble within puzzle, that has been otherwise pretty easy. RONAN ended up being specifically vexing, when I had no idea concerning the "R" cross (6A: Mate) because i recently had -O and all sorts of I could think of was "TWO" (?!) as well as the "B" in BRO wasn't coming because even once i acquired -OOTIE into place at 6D: infant's footwear, we hesitated. Believe perhaps FOOTIE ended up being anything (though I see given that "foot" is in the clue to make certain that had been constantly impossible). RAMOS I became in a position to take-down through crosses a tad bit more expeditiously. In addition had FERMI winning gold medals at Olympics inside '20s (60percent correct), but that worked itself out promptly as well.
[MAINSAIL!]Are you aware that motif, it really is attractive, needless to say. After all, would youn't like that song, Julie Andrews, etc. it is not a theme you need to scrutinize way too hard though, as you'll notice that typical thematic balance was completely chucked out of the screen, hence CALI is a total outlier for not pronounced in its solution the way in which its into the track, and therefore the real divide, syllabically, is ALI / DOCIOUS, maybe not ALID / OCIOUS (just pay attention, or sing it, you'll see), and therefore ATROCIOUS is a cop-out since that term (unlike all of those other motif answers containing song syllables) is clearly *in* the track. Prominently. FEROCIOUS might've been nice there. Anyway, when I say, in the event that you simply finish the puzzle, hum the tune, place the puzzle away, you're good.
