Isn't TITAN SEX SMILE plus another I the same
as SEATTLE MINI SIX ?

Just checking for clerical errors before I spend too much time on it...

Well, it can be made into INGRESSIVENESS, though I confess it looks to me more like a string of prefixes and suffixes than a word.

How about GIANT INGVALL ?

OK, it's hyphenated. (I didn't realize. Sorry, dumb@@@ among giants here...)

it's a compound hyphenated adjective

For a moment thought I'd had an inspiration with "Middle-English" but then I had to say the H with that...

Then I tried all sorts of variants of -singed and -signed and -designed and of course got nowhere.

If you put me on a boat with a lot of junior officers I will find the MIDDLE ENSIGN.

If you fool me in a game of rummy I will be MISLED, GINNED

I'm not sure I still have the balls to offer this next one:

COSTUME TRANCE

(as opposed to COSTUME ILANA, of course)

Ah yes. I thought "COSTUME TRANCE" had all the trappings af a tough one. Good job, arnie!
(COSTUME ILANA was another anagram of "emasculation.")

Yours is MESALLIANCE, clued by the definition.

Do you know the properties of CARBIDES? Or at least what they're widely thought to be?

Ah, yes. The Giants wanted it more, the Patriots' line was for whatever reason over-matched, the quarterback may have been not up to snuff in other ways as well, and I think they were simply out-coached on this occasion.

It's only a game, but nevertheless there is no joy in Mudville.

I don't think he lost his nerve, rather his offensive line was completely overwhelmed. He was sacked how many times, and tackled how many more after throwing? The miracle is they only lost by three points!

Be that as it may, nobody got your target so you're still up if you'd like to be. May we have the next question, please?

Funny how I've never come across "turpitude" except with the epithet "moral".
