Puzzle master Will Shortz quizzes one of our listeners, and has a challenge for everyone at home.

Challenge from March 11: Take a six-letter word used in a certain sport. Add the letter "I." Re-arrange the resulting seven letters to spell the first name of a famous actress.

This actress's last name, in five letters, identifies the place where the sport is played.

Who is the actress and what is the sports term?

Answer: Kirstie Alley, Strike, Bowling

Winner: Joseph DeVincentis from Salem, Mass.

Challenge for March 18: Think of a well known two-word motto. Say it quickly and it will sound like a different two-word phrase for the result of some auto garage work. What is it?
