I’m more worried about being a good person than being the best football (soccer) player in the world.”   —   Lionel Messi

(Yeah.  I just had to be the ugly American, and went and called it “soccer”!  You can’t get away with having a quote like this during the NFL playoffs.  Not on my watch!  LOL!  Hey, Congrats to my “cousin” Toby, and all the other Vikings fans, on the miraculous last second, come from behind victory, over the Saints last night!  Stefon Diggs will go down in Vikings history, as their most memorable scorer.  The Vikings were Viktor-ious!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GRAINY

(Ta da!  We have our first new clue word of 2018, with “raffle”!  Someone wake ralis95.  He’s got a little updating to do with his world famous clue word database!  I thought “jovial” might be new, because I can’t remember it being used before.  But, I suppose it could’ve been prior to March of 2008.  And, all of today’s jumbles also appear to be new.  The answer letter layout made for another great jumble.  The cartoon is a fine, granular and gritty Mid-West farm scene.  Great way to start the week.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s pretty hard to tell what brings happiness; poverty and wealth have both failed.”   —   Kin Hubbard

(I understand how some might think that wealth might make one happy, but who thinks there’s happiness in poverty?  It’s good that we’ve had Kin Hubbard before, because I struggled with the first name . . . again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CONCESSION SPEECH

(Great stinky pun!  I loved it.  All of today’s jumbles appear to be brand new.  I didn’t struggle with any of them, but I did mis-see a couple of them for a second or two.  At first I saw science, instead of “scenic”, and stomach, instead of “mascot”.  A nice, long 16-letter answer letter layout made for a beautifully cryptic jumble.  Nothing about it looked obvious to me.  It looks like it’s the Jumblers vs. the Scramblers basketball game!  I sure hope Jeff was exaggerating a little with the food prices, because if not I won’t be going to any ball games anytime soon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Reputation is often got without merit and lost without fault.”   —   English Proverb

(This is the first time we’ve had an English Proverb since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  This Cryptoquote took me a good amount of time to get started.  I considered both the Q and the S as the E, until I finally figured out the word OFTEN.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HEAD OF THE CLASS

(Very nice.  A bit of irony with the answer.  Made me remember a television show I hadn’t thought about in probably 25 years, or more, “Head of the Class”.  It starred one of my favorite television actors of the ’80s, Howard Hesseman, who had previously been on “WKRP in Cincinnati”, as “Dr.” Johnny Fever!  I was just a young man back then.  Very good times for me.

All familiar clue words today, with two new jumbles.  We’ve seen “liduf” and “starhh” before.  I thought that “cgoek” was a very challenging jumble!  Took me a few seconds before I saw “gecko”.  The answer letter layout was just okay today.  I was able to see CLASS, and of course OF stood right out.  Fun cartoon though.  It looks like Jeff put Kobe into the Jumble.  Intentional?  Hmm!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
