### Off-Day Puzzle #7: Dropping Into Place

You know what to do.

Puzzle Rules: The solution to the puzzle is a Dodger.

Comment freely in the thread, but if you have the solution, please don't give it away to everyone in the comments section. Instead, do the following:

• Email us the solution (first and last name), along with your reasoning. Submitted answers without the reasoning, or those submitted with the incorrect reasoning, will count for participation only, even if the answer itself is correct;

You have until midnight PT tonight to submit your answer. Answer will be posted a 7a on Friday July 29. Depending on how generous I feel (and how busy today gets at work), we may post hints during the day. Good luck!

Not familiar with SoSG's off-day puzzle competition? Read up here. And join the mayhem!

HINT #1 (10:08a): Okay, obviously you've got to start by solving the drop quote. From there, step two is to order what you've got. (Not sure how many more hints I can give after this!)

HINT #2 (2:40p): Step three is to figure out where to go next to find the treasure. And there, you'll find the answer. Good luck!

"You know what to do."

Oh, I do? Well, that'll make it easy.

Kyle Baker said...

I made the word, "Dido." What ever happened to her?

Steve Sax said...

Oh Josh S, I know you've got this one.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty Baker 7:26a: Dido finally raised that white flag she referenced. And Iiiiiiiiiiii, want to thank her.

LOL!

Not sure why that was so funny to me, but thanks Sax.

Steve Sax said...

Dusto, Hint #1 posted.

I probably won't do another hint after this...

Dusto_Magnifico said...

My second runner-up finish this season. I'm starting to feel like Phil Hellmuth. =/

ubragg said...

Probably my favorite PCS puzzle this year. Nicely done Sax. Now if only I can force myself to get up at seven and do this before work again... I can feel BCCSweet closing the gap...

Steve Dittmore said...

Completely forgot today was an off day. Spent day glued fantasy football tip sheets (not really) so I can dominate once again. But instead of Juan Pierre Dodger cards, I'm really hoping for Andruw Jones Dodger cards.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I have no Jones cards, Ditty. Will you settle for Jason Schmidt?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Seriously though, I'm going to try something other than baseball cards this year.

Maybe a singing fish.

Fernie V said...

So it is true about db and fb, rbnlaw post comforms my suspicions. Dusty send me a email if I am correct, you dont have to come out to everyone if you are not ready. I can keep a secret.

I'm with ubragg. This was a good one.

Kyle Baker said...

@RBN

Eminem up in dis bish!!!

Steve Sax said...

ubragg, Mr. Customer: both of you submitted correct answers. nice work.

Steve K said...

I thought I could quickly figure this out, but this drop quote is going to take forever...

Josh S. said...

Damn. I never had a chance to work on this, and I don't think I'll be getting it done in the next 32 minutes.

Steve Sax said...

i think the drop quote can come together pretty quickly, Josh S and Steve K. I'm up a little while longer if you want to run and gun.

Steve K said...

Thanks, Sax, but I think I'm off to sleep...
