"gas giant" isn't alliterative, is it? Different sounds start each word. Maybe they could replace that one.

My American son played on a soccer team for over ten years during middle and high school and in college. Soccer is alive and well in the USA. And a lot of parents prefer it over American-style football because in soccer people don't deliberately smash into to each other or try to throw each other to the ground and jump on them.

The percentage of people that got the answer correct is more than likely directly proportionate to the percentage of people that watch soccer in the US, if not an over statement. Point-in-case, I'm American and don't watch soccer but gotit right because I've heard of the Golden Goal. I hold that my generalization, not a stereotype, still holds true.

Actually, you realize that is impossible because in America is where it's called soccer, so... in order for that to happen somebody has to watch it. Now, if it was 'Americans don't watch football', then we would have to go into the fact that we may not watch international 'football', but we have our own football. Therefore, please stop making these unfounded assumptions. Thank you.

America isn't the only place it's called soccer. It's called soccer in Australia (our national team is The Socceroos), and I suspect it's called soccer in other places that have their own codes of 'football'.

We Americans get so bent out of shape when people stereotype us but have no problems stereotyping others. Soccer is just not popular here. That's not a stereotype...that's fact.

Adding "in extra time" would be helpful for the soccer question. I kept thinking about thunder and lightning as the only way to stop a game immediately. And couldn't for the life of me come up with an alliterative combination of G's to work, but also couldn't change my mode of thought. That little bit more of a clue would have certainly helped.

I don't want to write a paragraph for every clue. Like crossword puzzles, some of our quizzes are exercises in lateral thinking.

Only one I missed the first time. I agree the clue is confusing, but even if it was better I still would have missed it. I was trying to think of some outrageous penalty that would result in immediate forfeiture. Maybe a goalkeeper garroting?

Gas Giant is not alliterative. It is not sufficient for the words to begin with the same letter (nor is it necessary, incidentally); it is necessary and sufficient for the words to begin with the same phoneme.
