1. Shades of Red perhaps? Or just Red.

2. Type A or O (blood?)

3. Sellers (pink panther?)

4. eternal love?

5. Probably a baseball reference (out of my league)

1.Red will do it. That’s half

2.Close. Wrong vowel

3.Nope. Think how they do it in crossword puzzles.

4.It’s a hit? Oooo! Foul ball. Reverse!

5.Close. Wrong sport.

You’re on the right track. Good job.

The Sport would be Football. 1984 the Raiders beat the 'Skins in a really terrible Superbowl.

Young American

Conservative

Love eternal, then?

The American Scholar, ???, The Young American - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

It appears I just missed hitting a Homer, but maybe my sacrifice fly was enough to push in the winning run...

Hopefully the MLB's newly instituted video replay on boundary plays will overturn the initial call...
