The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

CBS Sports: Washington Football Team announces when it will reveal new team name

The Team Formerly Known as the Redskins plans to reveal its new team name on February 2. Is the timing of the Groundhog Day announcement an early indication that the team has settled on Red Hogs as its new brand? Whether it is or isn't, who wouldn't like to see the team hold the exact same press conference the following day?

I've seen Wordle compared to Mastermind various times at this point, and I don't think it's quite apt. After you make a guess in Mastermind, you're told *how many* pegs you have right (or right but in the wrong spot), but not *which* pegs. Wordle's feedback is more direct, specifying letters in the right place and letters in the word but the wrong place.

Maybe I was just playing wrong, but when I played Word Mastermind, we always had the pegs correspond to the letters.

I'm a little disappointed at the universe, showing how useful the separate RIP thread is from current events...
