Answer:  RELIEVED

(But, of course!  Very often they’ll act like they’re pissed off about being pulled from the game, but usually they know when they don’t have it.  And, they’re grateful to be replaced by someone who might be able give their team a fighting chance.

There were no new clue words today.  And, I didn’t even have to search my email to verify this!  All the jumbles were new, excepting the one for “dainty”.  The answer letter layout was swell.  And, another fine Jeff Knurek cartoon.  Today was my return to Mohonk Mountain House.  Still as lovely as ever!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
