Visual Description:  Me, on any given Sunday during Football season.


Clue/Question:  The team’s loss turned the pub into a . . .

Answer:  WHINE BAR

(I’m the guy at the bar, with his hands in the air, asking:  Why the Hell are they asking Fitzpatrick to throw on first and second down so much?  They’ve got two very talented running backs, who would love to get the ball more!  Do they want this kid – and the team – to fail???  I know that run, run, pass and – hopefully NOT – punt ALL the time CAN get kind of predictable.  But, there IS a very good reason why most teams rely on the formula for the majority of their possessions.  Yeah, mix it up a little, from time to time.  But, the probabilities are generally in your favor when you keep it on the ground, on first and second down.  The beauty of football is that it ISN’T rocket science.

Jumble???  Oh, yeah.  Words like “weigh” are a little hard to hide, so I’ve got no beef with that jumble.  But “blink” was just spelled backwards, man!  What is this?  The hiding in plain sight strategy?  I did think that both “dreamy” and “tights” were jumbled very well.  And, the answer letter layout was FA-BU-LOUS!  That’s for my LGBT readers.  And, Jeff draws a nice sports bar scene.  But, what self-respecting guy has a glass of wine while watching the game?  Perfectly acceptable for the ladies, of course.  But, us guys are supposed to drink beer, or something on the rocks, or even a soft-drink, when watching sports.  Save the wine for a cocktail reception, or a nice sit down dinner.  So, there.  That’s what I think of your stinking “bonus clue”, Knurek!  LOL!  Be well and do good, guys.)   —   YUR

    In regard to accidently spelling a few words backwards from time to time…Because I make these by hand and change things so many times, I’m sometimes so focused on making the Jumble look hard or look like another word, that I will rearrange the letters sometimes 10 or more times before deciding on a layout. Every now and then I will forgot to look to see if it’s just spelled backwards. It’s because I get so focused on the Jumbling part that I will occasionally miss this. It will happen from time to time. It’s just one of things that can happen when things are hand-made by a human. I wouldn’t want anyone to think it’s because of laziness. It’s actually the opposite. This happens when I spend too much time one Jumble and I get so focused on finding just the right layout. Basically what happens is that I stump myself and I can’t see the word even though it’s spelled backwards.
