Answer:  PULLING FOR THEM

(Of course he was.  It’s his team!  And, sometimes you pull for a team that’s competing against your rival.  As I’m pulling for Green Bay to beat the Jets!  You’ve got to root for your team, no matter what!  All of the jumbling was fairly challenging today.  And we even had a new word, causing a “ruckus”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will need to add this to his famous clue word database.  The answer letter layout was very well thought out.  It gave nothing away, and was a great jumble in its own right.  The cartoon does a fine job of illustrating both the physical and mental tension of the event.  Very satisfying Sunday Jumble, folks.  Enjoy the brief remainder of your weekends, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

    I thought it was “Pulling the form.” I knew it didn’t sound quite right and that I should keep working on it, but I figured it was probably an idiom I just didn’t know about. “Oh yeah, he was pulling the form, alright.” Sounds plausible, right? OK maybe not, anyway I felt pretty stupid when I saw the answer!

    I love it, coughlin382! Very plausible. It kind of has a British ring to it. “Pulling the form, was he? Yes. Quite.” Letter-wise, it works perfectly. I’m sure that Brits and Aussies have a hard time with some of our more American idioms. (I think the Canadians are pretty much on board with us.)

    Thanks, for the humorous comment. You made my day. — YUR 🙂
