1. What a certain spectator sport's spectators do

2. Doing 2,000 pounds of laundry

3. What to buy if you're only slightly thirsty

4. Mindful of a wooded valley

5. Bauxite that is missing

The hint gives the first letter of each state name.

Yes, it was a great teaser if I could have figured any of the answers out. I should have tried harder, but it is near midnight and I am getting drowsy.

Not being an American I thought I'd have more trouble with this than I did. Got 1, 2 and 3 straight away but needed the hint for 4 and 5.
Fun teaser. Would be nice to see another like it.

I got #2 right off the bat, then resorted to the clue and internet to get the rest. Different, good!
