Visual Description:  “Way on the other side of the Hudson . . .”


Clue/Question:  Where THE Yankee went to get a replacement for part of his uniform.


(Just for Lesley, guys???  Just kidding!  I’ll never be a Yankee fan, but I’ve never had anything against “The Kid”.  Besides being a great all-around player, Derek Jeter exemplifies all the best qualities of just about any sport.  He’s humble and respectful to all.  He’s even-tempered and a “good sport”, win or lose.  He doesn’t complain, and does what is needed, with a superlative work ethic.  And, he’s grown into the kind of leader that coaches love.  One who can lead – primarily – by example.  As impressive as his overall numbers might be, it’s his intangibles that make him one of the – if not THE – most revered players of this era.

I don’t know about anyone else, but all the clue words jumped off page for me, today.  Also, with the sign and the New York skyline, the answer was pretty obvious.  Despite the name of the company, from this vantage point it’s more likely located in Weehawken or Hoboken.  Possibly Jersey City, but definitely not Newark.  Nice “Guido” working the counter, Jeff!  Ayyy!  Does Tony Soprano run this shop, or what?!  I’m sure, at the very least, he providing some kind of . . . “insurance”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Since yesterday was a “Name That Tune” spoof, what song does today’s Visual Description line come from?

    I don’t know the song, but I do know that I really respect Derek Jeter! I have only ever seen 2 professional baseball games in my life. I got to see Gary Carter catch for the Mets many years ago, and I got to see Derek Jeter up close and personal at Yankee Stadium over 7 years ago. Those are my 2 secret baseball player crushes. That being said, it is definitely a Weehawken view, and I’m sure Tony has his hands in some of that “laundering” business! I used to live next to the town, North Caldwell, where the “Soprano” house was. When people visited, I always had to drive them buy it. I know that rocky road leading to it very well…grew up around there! I flew through today’s puzzle. Even JUNKET was easy! P.S. I just love that word WAFFLE! It has a number of really cool meanings!

    Aww, Lesley! This song s/b right up your alley. 1977. Dean Friedman (one hit wonder). The song is “Ariel”. I’ll try the link here. If it doesn’t work I’ll re-post it in one of tomorrow’s answers.

    Were you one of Tony’s cumares? 😉
