I will follow your advice and get on to Sunday, but first ... is "Continental" the final answer to "Windows^$poiler" ?

Now to Sunday ...

"How many Sundays in the last century would be related to the word we are looking for? Hmm.. I don't know. Maybe about 1000." So, on average over that time period, about 20%.But maybe they were not evenly distributed ...

How many Sundays in the last millenium would be related to the word we are looking for?
How many Sundays in the last decade would be related to the word we are looking for?
How many Sundays in the last year would be related to the word we are looking for?
How many Sundays in the last month would be related to the word we are looking for?
How many Sundays in the last week would be related to the word we are looking for?

Time for another recap?

Autumn Leaves? :P
That's probably wrong, but if it isn't, I was thinking it before AL came up.

Sundays in Autumn? Not relevant. Actually, in January could also be 1 or 2.

This object, is it a traditional thing which goes way back? Or is it something that doesn't depend on tradition at all and goes back to infiniti? Or something that is more modern?

So we're talking about a period in the year that begins on the second Sunday in September and lasts until end of December - middle of January, right?
Are these 15-20 Sundays consecutive? (that is, all Sundays between some Date A and some Date B have these property, and only these Sundays?)
One of the following relevant:
sports?
academic/high school year?
sessions of the parliament?
some exhibition or fair?
an art project?
a TV show?
one of these "reality TV" shows, like Star Search, where people get money for playing the fool?

Do we need to know which sport?

With the season you suggest, American Football seems a possibility. Is it American Football?

If not:
Is it a team game?
Does it use a ball?
Is it played globally?
Which continent(s) is it most associated with:
Europe?
South America?
North America?
Africa?
Antarctica?
Asia?
Oceania?

Something related to football...

A Pass? An interception? Something like this? You said it yopeishly has a physical presence. Does Sunday matter, any more, or did that just clue football?

Something related to football... If this is a question then the asnwer is noish.

A Pass? An interception? Something like this? No. You said it yopeishly has a physical presence. Yes. Does Sunday matter, any more, or did that just clue football? Pretty hard to answer. You could solve this even without mentioning football (so, by using Sunday for something else), but football may be helpful.

Has it got something to do with an acronym? For example, In Australian Rules Football, the National game is called the AFL. Is there an American League of Football? (I was following this line of thought when i originally asked the AL question)
