Hank: Good morning, John. Back when I was in Indianapolis, we recorded a thing where we played New York Times Connections games against each other, and I was gonna make that into a video, and then it turned out to be just too much of a lift for me at the moment, I did not have the time, because it's a harder edit than the average vlogbrothers edit, so I sent it to my friend Milo (who has been editing hankschannel videos) and Milo has created that video.

Hank: So here it is. The video. I think Milo did a great job, definitely better than I would have done. But most importantly, the universe made it so that this is a remarkably dramatic piece of sports content, which really came down to the wire at the end and it's amazing, and I love it, and I hope that you enjoy it, too.

Hank: Good morning, John.

John: Good morning, Hank. It's Friday!

Hank: I spent a lot of time looking over your collection.

John: Yeah.

Hank: It's pretty- a bunch of great, fun stuff.

John: Yeah, this is actually from the, this is from the Turtles All the Way Down movie.

Hank: Oh, it was in the movie?

John: This is in the movie. It's the grand opening ceremony of the Pickett Center for Tuatara Research.

Hank: The beer sword is the best prop by far.

John: Beer sword's a great prop. So, here's this.

John: Oh, thanks. We need that.

Hank: Do we?

John: Oh yeah. Ok, what are we doing today?

Hank: Well, John, I wanted to do a New York Times game race with you.

John: I'm ready.

Hank: I feel like this is now free sponsorship for the Times, which is not how you should take it.

Hank: We're gonna do Wordle, Connections, and then the Mini, and then to finally see who wins, who gets to the pangram first on Spelling Bee.

John: Race to the pangram.

Hank: Race to the pangram. John: Ok, 3, 2, 1, go!

Hank: I'm going to start with-- what are you starting with?

John: "Slate"

Hank: I'm starting with "Crane." That-- I just got a text from my dad which is upsetting me. Uh, oh, wow. I'm worse at this than I--

John: I just glanced at your, I just glanced at your screen. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to, I didn't mean to.

Hank: Ok, stop looking at my thing. Now you know things that I don't know.

John: I tried not to use my knowledge.  This is harder when--

Hank: Yeah!

John: the internet's watching.

Hank: Absolutely.

John: Umm--

Hank: Oh my god, stop sending me texts.

John: I've completely lost my ability to do this. I'm like, I'm very nervous.

Hank: (laughs) Me too!

John: Alright, I'm going with, I'm going with a weird word that I'm just looking to get some information from.

Hank: Yeah, me too.

John: I gotta start doing this, I gotta just move. Ok, that's helpful. This is a weird Wordle word.

Hank: It's a weird word, yeah.

John: Could it be "herpe" singular? No, I think I got it. No, that's not it, but that might give me some information.

Hank: Oh, I think I got it. No! What on Earth?! Ok.

John: What did you get?

Hank: Nothing!

John: Well, tell me what you got, though.

Hank: No!

John: Oh, ok. I got "Nerve." Are you close to that? What about, like--?

Hank: (laughs) I am closer than that.

John: Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I got it, I got it, I got it, I got it, I got it.

Hank: Oh, I think I got it. I think I got it.

John: Got it!

Hank: What the frick is this word?

John: Got it! Got it! Got it! Got it! I finished it!

Hank: Oh, there it is. I got it, I got it, I got it.

John: Nope, you don't.

Hank: I don't?!

John: You don't.

Hank: What the heck?! What is it?!

John: (laughs)

Hank: Oh my god!

John: You got what I got.

Hank: Oh, jeez. Ok.

John: I can't do Connections. Like I have no gift for this game whatsoever.

Hank: That's great news for me.

John: Ok. 

Hank: So, uh, I'll help you.

John: Yeah.

Hank: I'm seeing, like, "Kettle" and "Range" are ways to make tea, but now I don't see anything else that's a part of that.

John: Ok, yeah, just keep talking, talking, talking out loud. Just keep talking through.

Hank: Ok, ok, uhh, ok, now I've got it.

John: I made a mistake.

Hank: That's ok, you can make mistakes. I got my first one.

John: What'd you get?

Hank: I got the yellow, John. It's ok, you're gonna, you're gonna come back and get me in the Mini.

John: No. That's like a 30 second game.

Hank: These are all metal. What the heck is-- what? No, that can't be it. I'm trying anyway.

It is it! Oh, heck yeah.

John: I mean, you can give me all day and I'm not gonna get this, so.

Hank: (laughs)

John: "Comb" is something you do with your hair.

Hank: Mmhmm.

Both: "Brush" is something you do with your hair.

John: Have you done this already?

Hank: No, I haven't got this one.

John: Oh great.

Both: (laugh)

John: Oh, I just shuffled them. I don't know if that's, that was by accident.

Hank: That can help sometimes.

John: Wait, "Scope." "Extent."

Hank: Alright. There it is.

John: "Range."

Hank: I got it!

John: What's the fourth one that's like "Range?" "Reach."

Hank: I think you lost this one.

John: Woo! Alright, I got one! I got one!

Hank: (laughs)

John: I got one in the time it took you to get four. What's next? It's one to one. We're doing the Mini?


 NewSection (3:53)



John: Ready?

Hank: Okay, mini.

John: And go. 

Hank: I don't know. I don't know. Oh geez I'm so bad. 

John: Did it. Forty seconds. 

Hank: Aw I'm not even close! I knew you were going to destroy me at that. Well, but that does mean-

John: Well, you destroyed me at connections.

Hank: Although that does mean it gets to be decided by the spelling bee. 

John: Well only in the sense that you can tie. I have two points.

Hank: Oh no. 

John: You could argue that you should get two points for beating me at connections by so much. 

Hank: Yeah, a tie would be a huge win for me against a word guy. 

John: Okay. Alright. What is it?

Hank: We're going to do spelling bee to the pangram and I feel like you're going to beat-

John: I mean I'm really good at spelling bee. I'm a genius every single day.

Hank: (laughs) Okay. 3, 2, 1, go! Alright.

John: Uh-oh. I don't have it right away.

Hank: What are you doing? Why are you typing so much? 

John: I'm typing in the words that I see as I'm seeing them. 

Hank: Are you serious?

John: Mmhmm. 

Hank: I almost got it. I got one away. I don't know if that's a lot. 

John: I have not gotten even close to one away. So. What'd you type in? To get one away. Just out of curiosity.

John: Oh, you typed in "beagle." I already know what you typed in. 

Hank: (laughs) I just typed in "bangable," but that's not a word. "Bangs." 

John: Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, it has "able" in it. It has "able" in it. It's, ah. Oh.

Hank: Why did you say that? I got it. I got it!

John: I got the pangram. I got it. I got it.

Hank: What?

John: I got it. I mean I- it's going to be an instant replay. It's going to be an instant replay. 

Hank: Literally don't know. 

Hank: How did you know it had "able" in it?

John: 'Cause you said "able" and I was like "oh I can't believe I didn't see that." If it has a common thing at the end it usually is the thing. 

Hank: How many words did you get? I got "angle," "bangle," "able," and "hangable." 

John: How many points do you have? Oh, you really you were focused on the "able." I got "glean" I got "bail," "ball," "beagle."

Hank: No "bangle" was my almost-there.

John: Oh, bangle is a good word. Thank you. I don't mind if I do. Alright, do you want to have the last race be to genius? It's a hundred and forty-four more. 

Hank: Literally not. 

Hank: And then the battery ran out on my camera and I didn't get to say the end of the video. So now I'm here to say the end of the video. John, that was fun. I cannot believe I tied you.

I feel very good! John, I'll see you on Tuesday.
