Citi-zens United

by George Barany, Christopher Adams, John Child, Charles Flaster, and Brent Hartzell

This Sunday-sized sports-themed puzzle was released just before a long-anticipated showdown of key interest to the puzzle's authors [truth be told, the pictorial hint to the right, taken from here, contains a certain amount of misdirection]. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), you may enjoy reading this bit of Barany family lore (see first paragraph) that  loosely relates to the puzzle's theme. This puzzle also appeared in the December 2015/January 2016 issue issue of Natural Selections, as accessed here.

Click here (two pages) or here (one page, for those with good eyesight) to view or download the puzzle in PDF format; here to download it as a puz file; here to download it as an ipuz file [requires the free Puzzazz app to solve]; here to solve the puzzle interactively (thanks to Jim Horne); here for the solution. An All-Star team that included Martin Ashwood-Smith, Howard Barkin, Ralph Bunker, Dan Chall, Tim Croce, Theresa Horan, Robert Mark, Lewis Rothlein, and Alex Vratsanos worked very hard and under great time pressure to brainstorm theme entries and clues, and to beta test and improve the puzzle. Let's Go 122-Across!
