Visual Description:  Manager about to cross the line with the umpire.


Clue/Question:  The dispute about whether or not the ball was fair was leading to this.


(It definitely looks like the language is getting a little blue!  The manager looks a little like Earl WeaverThat’s going back a few years!  Great scrambling on the clue words.  I got the first two right away, but I hesitated a little on “wallop”, and I cheated on “tongue”.  I was thinking NOUGAT for a minute, then something with OUT.  Then I decided I didn’t want to spend too much time figuring it out, the right way, so I looked at the cartoon and the clue/question.  I figured out the answer, knew I needed the GUE and backed into “tongue”.  Minds out of the gutter, kids!  I liked the layout of the answer letters.  Nothing was given away here.  Great, season appropriate, way to close out the work week, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Nobody argued with an ump like ol’ Earl!  Getting old is a bitch!   —   YUR

    I had the exact same issue with “tongue”. I even thought about “nougat” and something with “out”. I had to back into it. “Wallop” was weird, because I wasn’t sure that was a real word.

    LOL! LOL! LOL! I had to do the same thing as you guys with TONGUE! Late on this puzzle because I was fishin’! Caught my first sea bass and a 20″ fluke for dinner!

    “Little Bessie” knows how to take care of her man! I was just listening to “Up On Cripple Creek” on my way to get bagels this morning! Always love it when The Band comes on the radio!
