Sorry for the missed week – it was a busy one.

I’ll let a solver explain the solution to puzzle 74:

Answer: SEATTLE MARINERS
================
The 7 theme answers can each be described by the singular of an MLB team’s nickname. The cities for those teams are found in various clues.
JUNIPERO SERRA -> PADRE -> SAN DIEGO -> 1A
PRINCESS ANNE -> ROYAL -> KANSAS CITY -> 112A
BLACKBEARD -> PIRATE -> PITTSBURGH -> 46D
ASHLEY OLSEN -> TWIN -> MINNESOTA -> 70A
PAUL BUNYAN -> GIANT -> SAN FRANCISCO -> 20A
THOMAS WOLSEY -> CARDINAL -> ST LOUIS -> 114A
ADOLPHUS BUSCH -> BREWER -> MILWAUKEE -> 12A
The letters in those numbered squares spell LORD JIM, who can be described as a MARINER.

Next up is puzzle #75, “Wooden Idols.”
