Puzzle 108 – “Just Play It Cool”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Here’s a themeless for yall. The title nods in the direction of 28-Down, obviously; it’s also inspired by what a historically, humidly, hot spell it’s been in these parts for the past week or so. Hope you’re keeping it cool wherever you are.

Favorite clue: well, clearly, it’s 20-Across, which was the seed entry here. Also dug getting 10-Down in here, and while fill-in-the-blank-in-this-quotation clues are a bit out of fashion to many, I will stand by both 8-Down and 29-Down. (Kinda dig 58-Down too, now that I look at it again…)

And with that… happy solving, yall. Comments welcomed, as always. Hope you enjoy.
