He = H/A/M?
A famous person?
An LTPF'er? If so, you? Balin? Whirligig? Woubit? Peter? ISH? Woodworm? Someone else?

True story? Fictional?
Is he from a book? Movie? TV? other media?

LTPF lists of continents, countries, centuries & decades relevant, please?

He = H/A/M? H/T/M or H/A/M... Remember, this was UConn
A famous person? No
An LTPF'er? If so, you? Balin? Whirligig? Woubit? Peter? ISH? Woodworm? Someone else? None of these (other than "someone else" )

True story? yes Fictional?
Is he from a book? Movie? TV? other media? No to rest

LTPF lists of continents, countries, centuries & decades relevant, please? USA, earlier this year. To spare you the [LTPF List of States], Connecticut.

Did "he" do something stupid? Say something stupid?

Did this happen on campus? At a certain event? A certain UConn-related event? A sports match?

Can we give him a name? Would "Clive" suffice?

Did "he" do something stupid? Not really Say something stupid? This is closer to how I would describe it

Did this happen on campus? No, but... At a certain event? yes A certain UConn-related event? yes! A sports match? YES!

Can we give him a name? Would "Clive" suffice? Sure, but where'd you come up with that? Is this revenge for naming the scrund dad and son in your Hooker Day puzzle Blatu and Bonkweekwee?

Relevant what sport it is? It may help you figure out the rest. However, you could potentially solve this without knowing it. To spare you the [LTPF List of UConn Sports] it was men's basketball.

Was he a player? A spectator? this From your team? From the other team? I believe he was a student, but this is irrelevant.

I think "Clive" came from Garfield's invisible friend.

Was he shouting? Heckling? The opposing team? The team he was supporting?

Was he shouting? You could describe it this way, but that could mislead. Heckling? The opposing team? The team he was supporting? None of these

H/T/M and probably some H/YoungAdult (would that be YA)/M if your definition of the line between teen and young adult is 21. As for the number, I'd say several thousand. I don't have an exact number, but I'm guessing 4,000 or so.

Is the FA that he asked for something in particular? Close... It's that the relevant statement he made is asking for something in particular (what exactly he asked for before is irrelevant, and in fact I don't even know, although that too is irrelevant.) Or that the puzzle statement is a reaction to him, when in reality it was what he said himself? No, the reaction is important too

Did the section react to the game? Yesish A certain play? Yesish Something extremely good? Extremely bad? This is a tricky one to answer. It was a negative reaction, but in a way the play was good (at least for UConn).

As a hint, clarifying the ishes on the previous question would help.

Did the player get hit? The proper term is "fouled". But yes. But was not injured? Indeed he wasn't. Did it look like the player got hurt? But he wasn't? He didn't look injured.

Note: The previous answers could potentially be misleading.

did the player overreact to getting fouled? pretend to be injured? None of these, but you're OTRT. It was a pretty hard foul, and nothing else of note happened on the court. However, determining some basic information about the play could help.

was he at the front of the queue?

did he comment on the fact that he was m issing the game - or at least an exciting part of the game?

did he tell the vendor to get a move on?

Did he react to the crowd's reaction? React as if he had seen it? No

was he at the front of the queue? Well, it was his turn, so I suppose so

did he comment on the fact that he was m issing the game - or at least an exciting part of the game? He may have before saying the relevant thing, it doesn't matter specifically and I didn't arrive until he said the specific relevant thing so I can't say for sure

did he tell the vendor to get a move on? Again, he may have at some point , but this is not the relevant statement.

Did the crowd react to the play? Loudly?

Is it relevant what he was ordering? Did he gak?

Is this the right order of events: Clive (Stupid Student) was at the concession stand - probably placing an order - you arrived in the area - he said something relevant - a foul took place on the court - the crowd reacted loudly?
-or-
...you arrived at the concession area - a foul took place on the court - the crowd reacted loudly - and THEN the student said something relevant?

Did the crowd start booing?
Did Clive start booing?

Did the crowd react to the play? Yes Loudly? Yes, but there's more to it

Is it relevant what he was ordering? No Did he gak? No, but what the crowd did could be seen as a reverse gak from Clive's perspective (ooh, I just coined a new neologism - figure out what that means too)


Is this the right order of events: Clive (Stupid Student) was at the concession stand - probably placing an order - you arrived in the area - he said something relevant - a foul took place on the court - the crowd reacted loudly? Yes, bingo. But again, it's not JUST that the crowd reacted "loudly"
-or-
...you arrived at the concession area - a foul took place on the court - the crowd reacted loudly - and THEN the student said something relevant? No to rest of these

Did the crowd start booing? Not quite, but very OTRT
Did Clive start booing? No

did it sound as if the crowd were responding to what Clive said? Indeed - that is a "reverse gak" - where it sounds like the gakker(s) is/are reacting to something they're not even paying attention to (and shouldn't be - unlike in the original gak)

Did it seem like he'd predicted the foul?

Did the crowd boo?

The thing that Clive said - was it about his order? About the price? A certain food or drink?

Did the crowd boo? Noish, but somewhat OTRT

The thing that Clive said - was it about his order? About the price? A certain food or drink? I don't know, and it really doesn't matter. You're going about this the wrong way. As a hint, it's a classic phrase said by bad customers.

Was he complaining about the order? About the cashier? That they got the food wrong?

Did the crowd heckle the ref? Yell that he got the call wrong?

Was he complaining about the order? About the cashier? That they got the food wrong? Irrelevant. In fact, I don't even know because as I said, I didn't arrive until he made the relevant statement.

Did the crowd heckle the ref? Yell that he got the call wrong? Not at all. Remember, the foul was on the visiting team, and was blatantly obvious. So no.

did the crowd slow clap? hiss? jeer? laugh?

did Clive thank the vendor in a sarcastic or ungracious way?

did he say something like "I'm never coming here again?"

did he say something like "I'm never coming here again?" No, but you're OTRT in that it was a generic statement

"Don't you know who I am?" Well, "Do you know who I am?" but I'll give it to you. You're very close now. Just look over the previous answers and you should get it.

He said "Do you know who I am?" and the crowd reacted loudly, right?

Did the crowd yell at the foul-er? So by "lateral reasoning," Clive just committed a blatant foul? And is therefore one of the opposing players?

*****SPOILER******

Clive says "Do you know who I am?????" in an angry way, then a Syracuse (visiting team, though irrelevant) player commits a hard foul and the student section yells "A$$HOLE, A$$HOLE, A$$HOLE" at the player, but of course given what Clive just said, could be taken that they are calling him an A$$HOLE. The next game, they did it after a foul that led into a TV Timeout during which they announced the "Blood Donors of the Game" which in a way is even more ironic.
