# Connect Wall Squared

In this connect wall are 16 words. There are 4 groups of these words; your first job is to find these 4 groups and name them.

The second part is determining what 1 thing groups those 4 categories together.

Good luck!

Note: The knowledge tag is mainly for one of the categories, but a few other words might require external knowledge.

Rapids               Cardinal             Southwest            Earthquakes

Prop                 Smart                Brain                Feathered

Rotary               Delta                Home                 Jet

Galaxy               Dynamo               Tweet                Cellular


Partial solutions are welcome!

Hint: The final answer is a bit of a pun, especially in the "phone" category. It's obscure in the soccer teams, but very prominent in the plane/bird categories.

# Partial

Based on the knowledge tag, one group is:

Rapids, Galaxy, Dynamo, Earthquakes - all MLS teams, specifically in the Western Conference

From @pirate:

Home, Smart, Rotary, Cellular - all types of phones

From @North and @Heroscape

Cardinal, Tweet, Brain, Feathered - which refer to birds. "Birdbrain" is a common American insult, Cardinal is a family of birds... I don't see the jump from bird to birdbrain though

Leaving:

Prop, Southwest, Delta, Jet - Something to do with planes, I believe, maybe flying. Three are airlines (Southwest, Delta, Jet). Two are types of planes (jet, prop).

So the common word is:

wing? birds and planes have wings, there is a position of wing(er) in soccer, and the phone wings (rings) when someone calls it?

• The first sub-category is correct; the second is close. – Brandon_J Jan 30 '19 at 16:39
• Good job! I think rot13(Pneqvany Nveyvarf vf n orggre svg vafgrnq bs Cebc), and not sure about the last one – pirate Jan 30 '19 at 16:50
• @pirate thanks! Didn't know about that one! – eye_am_groot Jan 30 '19 at 16:54
• First two are correct; last two are on the right track, but a little off. – Brandon_J Jan 30 '19 at 17:28
• The groups aren't correct or the explanation wasn't? – eye_am_groot Jan 30 '19 at 17:30

Partial:

Smart, Home, Cellular, Rotary - types of phones

First answer ever on this forum. It took me time to find how to hide a block but I managed.

Partial.

As @North mentioned, there would be this category

Cardinal, Tweet, Brain, Feathered - which refer to birds. "Birdbrain" is a common American insult, Cardinal is a family of birds.

• Can you explain how you go from ROT13(oveq) to ROT13(oveqoenva)? I'm failing to see the jump (I don't doubt you are wrong, I just don't get it haha) – eye_am_groot Jan 31 '19 at 14:15
• I just had a thought that these words were linked with the word ROT13(oveq). I didn't really catch your question though. Like the group of 4 words would be ROT13(oveq) because they refer to it somehow. – Heroscape Jan 31 '19 at 14:39
• Hmm. Ok, I'd like to understand how the jump is made... – eye_am_groot Jan 31 '19 at 14:42
• @Greg Heroscape's category is correct. – Brandon_J Jan 31 '19 at 15:01
• Actually, I noticed that 3 words could create the category ROT13(oveq) so I looked for the rest by eliminating the others and with @North's help, there is the word ROT13(oveqoenva) which contains the category and the word "Brain". I assume that is the jump and why I added "Brain" to the category – Heroscape Jan 31 '19 at 15:18
