Hi guys!

It's really quite a basic puzzle, and probably a bit harder than a puzzle with such a theme has any right to be, though I actually can't see anything particularly untoward myself. However, I'm extremely adept at being able to look past certain things in my puzzles...

11:11, for me. A solidly Thursday time, a solidly Tuesday-Wednesday grid and a solid mix of gimmes and freshness in the fill and clues. In short, I loved it! A fun and satisfyingly jaunty solve, but I can't see a place for it at the NYT. But, then again, that's what this here forum is for.

5:57 for me. I enjoyed the puzzle quite a lot. Not a home run, but some sweet little moments nonetheless. I like the cluster of L's in the SE corner (wonder whether it'd be possible to zigzag a single letter diagonally all the way across a grid?).

Only one real problem: 16a is clued "Punch the air, like a boxer" and has the answer "SHADOWBOX". A clue really shouldn't have contain any part of its answer.

Keep it up!

Thank you for the feedback guys!'

TBerla: That's what I get for making last minute changes to decrease the difficulty!
