LAST WEEK’S RESULTS:
What American city concealed itself in last week’s grid? The four theme entries, all of which were clues simply as [TEAM], were:
17-A = WILD HORSES
27-A = CHUNKS OF GOLD
48-A = WESTERN RANGE
64-A = SKIING RISK
What’s going on here? Well, “wild horses” are Broncos, “chunks of gold” are Nuggets, “Western range” is the Rockies, and a “skiing risk” is an Avalanche. And those are the four major sports teams (NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL) based in DENVER, making that city our meta answer.

This was a Rapid solve.
And finally, Evad missed all the teams, but got the meta anyway:
The Mustangs, The Ingots, The Tetons and The Moguls.
This week’s winner, whose name was chosen randomly from the 610 correct entries received, is Jim Schooler of Laguna Beach, Calif. In addition to a MGWCC pen, pencil and notepad set, Jim will also receive a copy of Patrick Blindauer’s forthcoming Outer Space Puzzlefest. Next week’s winner will receive the same.
