    What was so hard about the clue that the cowboys did not get it?

    Excellent question! Perhaps he's dyslexic? He wasn't even close!

    That would make sense - as I did indeed have them backwards.

    Nate, the younger one is "Big Easy." Flight Time is the older one.

    I now = upon getting more sleep - think I'm getting FT mixed up with a gentleman from Houston who was in his 40s and played a game at my college.

    We thought it was because it was just so long. While I'm good at word puzzles, I would have had trouble maintaining my place between the order of the flags and the letters on the compass.

    (And they may not have realized that they needed to solve the entire thing.)

    Oh I agree. My point is that Big Easy and FT are not a weak team either so why give them a clue!?

    I'm sure hoping the Cowboys don't get eliminated. They're one of my favorite teams.
    Looks like everyone was helping everyone else with the clues. While I'd prefer that the teams decipher them on their own, it looks like there'll be a lot of thta, especially in the initial stages.
    Loved when the Globetrotter stated that...the important thing was that the man with the heart attack be taken care of. I just love FT and BE.
    Unhappy to see J & C and some other of my least fave teams back but, at least there are a number of teams I really like and can cheer for.
    I also loved Kisha and Jen. I give them a lot of credit for that water challenge.
    Looks like this will be a good season.

    Does the frenzied "background music" bother anyone? It seems more like "front ground music" this season. I imagined a conductor totally worn out leading the symphony. I know it wore me out. lol I wish they would tone it down a little.

    Isn't that why Margie said she helped Kynt/Vyksin? I know there's probably a season loyalty between Zev/Justin and the Globetrotters (but it shows how little I remember their season, I didn't even know they were together). But I think burning bridges this early when the other teams didn't do anything to you, or you may need their help, isn't very wise. I think the Globetrotters have an obvious physical advantage, but there might come a point Z/J don't want to help them and they'll expect it. I'd rather everyone figure it out and not get help, but it just seemed like a stupid decision on their part.

    Yes, that's what Maggie said (help Goths because they are a weaker team.)

    I can see many U-turns in the future with all the teams' history.

    I had wondered that myself. The other contestants who made mistakes only missed one word. It sounded like Jet/Cord (can't remember who) completely messed it up. Speaking of one word...have none of the contestants heard of the saying "Between the devil and the deep blue sea"? I wondered why some of them didn't solve half of it then guess the rest and run off. It seemed like everybody had problems, though.

    During the Globetrotters' season, I'm pretty sure they said Big Easy was from New Orleans, hence the nickname.
