I gather that you can see those are the initial letters of the months of the year but I can't see what MOS has to do with it. Maybe that's what you're asking!

Thanks - you've made sense of it! I must be tired: didn't actually notice they were months of the year...duh!
So the answer is Mo's, short for Months.
Thanks!!!!

You're welcome. It's morning for me! I would have expected MOY (months of year) but I have not seen your quiz. Have a good night.

I like the Washington Post puzzles - a mixture of straight, general knowledge ans mildly cryptic. I struggle with the Americanisms, and of course have to remember to spell in American too, but Google and Wikipedia are great when it comes to sports people I've never heard of who play sports I haven't heard of either!
Happy Thursday!
