Spring has returned.  The earth is like a child that knows poems.”   — Rainer Maria Rilke

(How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? With eyes wide open, fellas!  I was thinking Rainer sounds like a strange name for a girl, then I Googled the . . . guy?!  Oops!  My bad, bud.  I’m STILL having trouble with the singer of Hey Soul Sister being a guy!  Dude sounds like a lady to me.)   — YUR

(Timely) Jumble Spoiler – 04/04/11

Shooting a 3pt buzzer beater to win the game f...

Visual Description:  A desperation half-court buzzer-beater.


Clue/Question:  Making the winning shot would be up to him because the ball was . . .


(A nice, ease in to the work week, Monday jumble.  Well scrambled.  Nothing obvious.  But, not too difficult.  If this was to tie in with tonight’s championship game there couldn’t be a player number 7.  Only 0, 00, 1-5, 10-15, 10-25, etc.  You would only see a number 7 on a national team, as in the Olympics, where the numbers run 4-15.  Was yer uncle aware of this regulation before this morning?  Hell no!  I was trying to look up if either Butler or UConn had a number 7, when I noticed neither had a 6-9.  Looked at other teams and saw the same thing.  Did a Google search and discovered the official squad designations for all major amateur and NCAA sports, on a Wikipedia page.  I learned something new today.  By the way, the reason for the groups of fives is so that the refs can communicate, among themselves and with the official scorer, the player’s number by holding up their fingers.  Makes sense.  Tonight, I’ll be rooting for the under-dog.  The Bulldogs are mostly a bunch of homegrown Hoosiers – an organic squad, if you will.  While the Huskies ship ’em in from all over the country, Germany, and even Nigeria!  I say Buy American  . . . gol dang it!  Cause if ya don’t . . . well, then the terrorists win.)   — YUR
