Pugilist Crossword Clue 5 Letters
Your sense of difficulty will probably depend a lot on your familiarity with the names (a considerable amount) in today’s puzzle, but for me, this was a cinch. Much easier than yesterday. Much easier (and more enjoyable) for me to work around a name I don’t know (or in the case of WILLEY POST , only vaguely know) than having to wonder what a lot of difficult clues are doing with their awkward wording and trickery I think this one is a little heavy on the names, although maybe that’s simply because there are names in such positions (eg 1-Across, 2/5 of that middle stack). In fact, the pile of COTILLARD and WILEY POST , not far from EDWARD I and PANETTA , creates the illusion of a universal name. I don’t think the puzzle has more names than your average puzzle. But today are long names, in crucial positions, so they may have considered heavily whether you sailed through the puzzle (like me) or not. I once wrote an article on “Braveheart,” so EDWARD I was gimme in 1A: “Braveheart” villain, and as often happens, gimme 1-Across announcing an easy puzzle.

I did that NW corner as quickly as I’ve ever done any non-themed corner. ILE RHINO NARWHAL and the whole thing fell. Not confident that the momentum would continue, given how completely that section is from the rest of the grid, but I guessed the SCIENCE part of DATA SCIENCE , and then, as in the case of EDWARD I , I just *was know* COTILLARD , and SOLFEGE , and I was off and (actually) running. WILLEY’S JOB was by far the biggest stumbling block for me, but even there, after I had some crosses, even though I didn’t really know who he was, his name moved into consciousness, and I never felt close to legally stuck.
Despite the fact that DATA SCIENCE crossing LOGIC GATE tried very hard to put me to sleep, I thought most of this was [YOUR KISS]! Front page article about New York POT FARMERS in my paper yesterday, so [Joint venture?] was completely transparent to me. I only know the phrase CABS IT from doing the NYTXW. Seems like a very NYC thing. A NYC thing from the last century. But one of the benefits of doing this damn puzzle over decades is that you notice a lot of regions and slang names and place names and what not, which you then come across again only in crosswords, which creates a kind of crosswords, imaginary. , a composite NYC, containing all the NYCs that have ever existed since about the 20s. I wonder what would happen if I tried to draw a map of NYC if I only knew about NYC from crosswords. Let’s see, there’s the BQE and MOMA and … NEDICK’S on every corner, maybe? Anyway… CABS IT! And if someone asks you to look after their cab while they’re out of town, well then you’re a CAB SIT. Sounds made up, yes, but so is NEDICK’S, so … CAB SIT. “I was cabsitting outside the Nedick’s in 88 and Lex when this pug * named Roscoe…” – and suddenly you have a Damon Runyon story!
This puzzle could have used a little more oomph in the clue, if only because it felt at times like a trivial test. There are a few “?” clues (some are the appropriate number, btw), and they are solid, but most of what you get today in the clue section is extremely simple. I like that the “monodon monoceros” ( NARWHAL ) crosses the RHINO ( ceros ). Horny-faced creatures of the world, unite! The weirdest moment of the solution for me was malapop — this is a term for when you want an answer that ends up wrong … but then that wrong answer is *right* elsewhere in the grid! I think Andrea Carla Michaels coined that term a long time ago. It sounds like a technical term, but it happens terribly. Today, I considered “AW DANG!” in 4D: “Oh, damn!” (“AW RATS!”), and that “G” made me think DREG about 26A: Bottom of the barrel (LEES ). Fast forward to—11D: Rest (DREG ). DREG is such a strange word to see in the singular that this particular malapop feels very strange. But that’s it! Overall, I enjoyed this Saturday-level suitable solving experience, even if the trivia (in my wheelhouse) failed to put me through the WRINGER (3D: Metaphor for a difficult ordeal) (which I enjoy sometimes on Saturdays). We’ll see you tomorrow.
* “pug” is old-fashioned slang for “pugilist” or “boxer,” but if you want it to be a dog, I think the story still works. It’s an enjoyable puzzle today – and I definitely found it more difficult than Gaza’s three stars would indicate.
