there is an intended one word answer/match described in three ways in each of the nine lines. from there it is sort of like a round robin.

RoyalBlue - sorry to be so short earlier. guess was late for happy hour.

mojobrain - sorry, none of those

Sounds almost like a lawnmower or weedeater.

not a match

does the third one have anything to do with the Obama Admin/ Democrats?

Not the third one but I suspect you and Framm are looking at this in the same unintended way, my bad. Each of the 9 lines has a one word answer. Each of those answers is a "match" to three components of that line. So after the nine lines are answered, we'll be left with nine words/three sets of three. Each of those three sets of three will have a "match" resulting in three more words. Those three words will then be a "match" to a final answer.

hey MissKitten - wow - of all of the nine lines, thought this one was one of the least likely to have a legit alternative answer. a great fit but not the match. ooh, and those are strictly unfounded rumors.

ebb?

am thinking you're referring to "Cut and let it rip" ? - not the match.

still a little worried I really muddled the format...

Take exit 710 -- direct/directions

Upper career pace -- fast

Cut and let it rip -- ?? seems like something w/ clothing like you cut something to start it, then rip it off....we'll guess "sleeves"

Swallow a ladyfinger -- engulf

Contest a lighter pairing -- dominate/domination

Recreate some slack performance -- dramatization

Popular blue donkey -- Clinton(i'm sticking w/ Dems until you tell me to stop)

Soak in a glass of seawater -- brine

Learn to collect a bunch -- scavenge/r

Pasadena ?

wide receiver or running back in football! (

:offtopic: Pre-season starts today, woot!!)

hey t_l - 'fraid no match

Take exit 710 -- direct/directions

Upper career pace -- fast

Cut and let it rip -- ?? seems like something w/ clothing like you cut something to start it, then rip it off....we'll guess "sleeves"

Swallow a ladyfinger -- engulf

Recreate some slack performance -- dramatization

Popular blue donkey -- Clinton(i'm sticking w/ Dems until you tell me to stop)

Soak in a glass of seawater -- brine

Learn to collect a bunch -- scavenge/r

hey t_mo - a couple of these are real close and 7. cant really get any closer w/o throwing everyone off the trail.

democratic

nice work

speeding....??? or engine....???

hey EDM - one of those is correct

speed - upper = speed as in pep pill, career = speed as in go fast, pace = speed as in rate...

all the others are similar with the three clues in each line being synonymous to (or in a couple of cases definitively associated with) the answer in different ways.

Popular blue donkey (well-known/democratic, as in shared knowledge

Soak in a glass of seawater (immerse, absorb/saline, brine)- things usually float in seawater - suspend or suspension? Or holding?

Learn to collect a bunch (knowledge/acquire, or acquiring knowledge)

My guess: the key word here is knowledge
