In the on-air puzzle, clues are given to two words. If you add "C-O" in front of the first word, you'll get a new word that is completely unrelated to the first one. For example, if the clues are a woman's undergarment and a venomous snake, the response would be "bra" and "cobra."

Challenge from Last Week: Name a place where most people would like to go. The name of this place contains the letter "V" somewhere inside it. Replace the "V" with "T" and "H" to name a person you wouldn't expect to go there. Who is it and what's the place?

This challenge comes from listener Jerry Cordaro of Cleveland, Ohio.

Answer: Heaven and Heathen

Winner: Sharon Dell-Gallagher, from Etters, Pa.

This Week's Challenge: Name two outdoor sports or games in seven letters. The first two letters of the first sports name are the same as the first two letters in the second sports name. And the last two letters of the first sports name are the same as the last two letters in the second sports name. Hint: The names do not end in "N-G." What sports or outdoor games are these?
