matchups in which the home team's name is a
"kangaroo word" of the visiting team's name
NBA: Denver at New Jersey
NHL: Columbus at St Louis
NBA: Seattle at Phoenix
contributed by Paul LeGere, who offers this explanation:
Kangaroo words are words that hide within their letters another word, in order.
Pure kangaroo words have the same basic definition or "sense" as the mother
for these purposes, the master definition can be "possible opponent."
Also, there should be intervening letters. REDSox
does not work as a Kangaroo word, but
REDSKINS does, other than the
fact the Redskins would never play the Reds. (HORNETS
doesn't really work, for the "all consecutive" reason.)
