Fleet popped into my head somehow from somewhere.
Ohhhhh. I visit the site Lawyers, Guns, & Money -- a political and cultural blog -- and had no idea it was referencing a song.
I worked in Huntsville, Alabama, for a few years, and that was my introduction to the Alabama/Auburn rivalry.
I have an Advent calendar, but I missed this clue. I was trying to think of an "A" word and came up with Ascension, though I was sure that was wrong.
So I got Auburn, Fleet Admiral, Queen Victoria, and Henry Moore, who I thought was American, but the sculpture was undeniably his.
I also got pulsar. It just came to me. I'm very weak in astronomy, but the wording of the clue led me there.
