This puzzle is called Trianagrams because the puzzler has to fill in the three words in each sentence or phrase that are anagrams to each other. For example, if the clue read “Now that Darryl was mired in a ____, he had to take his ____ from the fans. One hollered, “Hey Strawberry what happened? Did you lose your _____ and pears,” you would have to fill in the words “slump,” “lumps” and “plums.” As an added help to solve these sport Trianagrams, I will tell you that the missing words get longer as the puzzle progresses. Good luck!
