- Catholic cardinal (usually a bishop or someone just below the pope) - A shade of red - "A short hooded cloak, originally of scarlet cloth, worn by women in the 18th century." - Cardinal numbers - A reference to any number of sports teams
I like the Ryan Adams logic but it seems too easy.
Yeah fair enough. The key will be if the online crossword is the same as the print crossword... if not then we're at square one again. Anybody get a hold of the print version of that paper yet to double check?
Something to do with a puzzle? Crossword or jigsaw? Could it possibly be the English band Marillion? Lyrics from Jigsaw: We are jigsaw pieces aligned on the perimeter edge,Intelocked through a missing piece. Also The Rolling Stones have a song called Jigsaw Puzzle. www.marillion.com
When I read it, I see cardinal meaning direction, as in the cardinal directions. A direction that combines fire and ice in rare places. I'm liking the volcano idea, as stated above.
Edit: After a quick search, here is a hot spot in a cold place
Mt. Erebus, the world’s southernmost active volcano, is located on Ross Island, just off the coast of Antarctica in the Ross Sea. Part of the Ring of Fire, Mt. Erebus is located along the boundary of the Scotia and Antarctic tectonic plates.

Hmm, this one's a weird clue. Most of the others make it more clear how the answer fits in - "this young palette," "these former kids/nannies," "this ruffian," stuff like that. With this one I have no idea how the wording of it leads to a band/musician, y'know?
The RHCP thinking isn't bad except that the precise wording of the clue doesn't really make sense...plus I think RHCP is pretty unlikely at this point.
Really kinda flummoxed by this one because I don't know if our answer is the cardinal or the rare place or what...
