Today’s Connections Category Names

Connections Answer for November 12
Have you finally given up and are ready for the answer? The answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- PRESIDENTS – Ford, Grant, Lincoln, Wilson
- SPORTS PROFESSIONALS – Coach, GM, Player, Scout
- CAR COMPANIES – BMW, HONDA, JAGUAR, SUBARU
- COMMON PREFIXES – AUTO, POST, SEMI, SUB
Today was an America-centric day as the Yellow category started with me naming all the presidents. I mean, it was easy once you paired up Lincoln and Ford together. I had my next luck with the blue categories with car companies, as clubbing them was also easy enough. While I don’t have a lot of experience in the sporting world, I’ve seen The Blind Side enough times to know what Coach and Scout means. However, I followed the pattern of sadly losing to the purple as it happened again and I finally got my answer for Connections for November 12.
