3. WESTERN TROPES: COWBOY, DRIFTER, OUTLAW, SHERIFF
4. TV SHOW TITLE SURNAMES: LASSO, MARS, ROGERS, SMART
Connections #99 was a good one to start off the new work week.
At first, I tried including SMART with three of the other "intelligent" words to form a group. I also wondered if LASSO was going to be related to the other cowboy-related words at one point.
I'll admit that in my final category, I could name Ted Lasso, Veronica Mars and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, but I wasn't sure what show had SMART in the title. Spoiler alert: it's Get Smart with the character Maxwell Smart.
Luckily, I was able to solve all four today without using up my guesses—much better than Saturday's experience!
How'd you do?
