(Not bad, for a fried out aprés-Super Bowl XLVI Monday morn! Eli and the G-Men took it to Brady and the Pitty Pats. Congrats to the New York (Football) Giants, and their fans, everywhere! Condolences to the chowder heads. They put up a great fight, and the game could have gone the other way . . . but it didn’t. My household is ecstatic! I partially lost my voice, screaming at the – new? – rule that says it doesn’t matter if you’re forced out of bounds, you still need to get both feet in bounds on a catch! When did they put that little injustice into the game? No matter. Manningham did get both feet in bounds, before being knocked out of bounds, so the point was moot! THAT and when it was looking like Manning was going to take a third delay of game penalty! Although, he did just barely beat the clock, I was losing it there. That could have messed up the momentum, but fortunately they got the play off. I’m getting too old for this crap, folks. I’ll tell you one thing. I bet Rex Ryan is kicking himself for cutting Danny Woodhead a few years ago. That little man nearly won the game for the Pats. He’s all of 5’7″, and he looks like he could be on your local high school team. I was hoping the Bills would snatch him up, after the Jets released him, but Belichick & Co saw the kid’s talent first. Tsk, tsk!
Good jumbling all around, but nothing too tough. Two new words for the ralis95 database, in “buddy” and ” stormy”. The answer letter layout gave nothing away. Decent Jumble. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. Click on the word “Pitty” if you’d like to hear a great rock band out of Brazil. I’d never heard of her/them before, but they’ve been around for a few years, and apparently they are huge in Latin America. Anyway, they kick ass! If you do a Google Image search you’ll see that she looks like a Brazilian Amy Winehouse,
but hotter. I’m going to have to put in a call to Caroline Corley and/or Jimmy Fink, to see if they can get them some airtime. Looks like now I have another reason to want to go to Brazil!
