Clue/Question: Winning the free art class was the . . .
Answer: LUCK OF THE DRAW
(What happened to that great cartoon of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings you were supposed to give us?!!! Censors turned you down, huh? It looks like I’m going to have to provide my own cheap thrills. LOL! Oh, well. A return to the traditional, with our heroes taking part in the action, is always a welcome sight. Not as welcome as Women’s Beach Volleyball, mind you, but still . . . a welcome sight. This felt a little like a re-run, but I guess that’s just because the word draw is so versatile. All the clue words were well jumbled, today. We have a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database, in the word “uncork” I would have uncorked that word a long time ago! The answer letter layout was masterful! The answer itself wasn’t too tough, but it made for a nice pun. Was that it for the Olympic-themed jumbles? I was actually expecting a few more. Not even a closing ceremony? LOL! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
