Technically, in order to be an acronym, it has to be a pronounceable word. If you can't pronounce it, it's an initialism.

Well, Bob, I don't know about these others, but I love a good night in with the old Oxford English Dictionary. I'm assuming you've already read it, but I've only just started Chapter L, so no spoilers please. That labascate bit? Killer stuff. I was so on the edge of my seat, I was beginning to fall off.

When you're a sports fan, you see GOAT a lot. I have mostly seen it associated with Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, and a few times with Mariano Rivera, though for him it is GOAT not of an entire professional sport, like MJ and the Great One, but of his position.

Wayne Gretzky played hockey in the 80's and 90s (best known for his play with the Edmonton Oilers and LA Kings)and he is considered to be the greatest hockey player of all time. Mariano Rivera was a baseball pitcher (closer to be specific) with the Yankees in the 90s-2000s and only retired a few years ago.

Actually, Dwight was his first name. David was his middle name.

All depends on WHEN... Yes, his original name was David Dwight, but his mother changed it to Dwight David when he was young, to avoid the confusion of having two Davids in the household (his father's name was David Jacob Eisenhower).

Never heard GOAT before, but it was actually guessable with a bit of thinking. I was gonna complain it's too sports centered (2 questions with the same subject!), but since I got those right I guess I can't? VIN remained a mystery, though having seen the answer it shouldn't have been as hard as it was.

Nope, I'm a grandma. I was thinking of the arcade game my kids used to play in the '80s, but after looking it up I realized it was actually called "Hero in the Castle of Doom". I always heard them call it just "Castle of Doom".
