First, let's get to the missed "words of the day". Friday's word of the day was Limn, meaning 1. to depict by drawing or painting, 2. to portray in words, to describe.
Saturday's word was Quandary - a state of difficulty, perplexity, doubt or uncertainty.
I'm starting to think they don't do the Word of the Day on Sundays. But today's word is Corroborate, which means to strengthen or make more certain with other evidence.
As for the world of sports, yesterday was a sad, sad day. My beloved Steelers made mistakes and lost to the Giants, we definitely should have won that game, just screwed it up.
