Answer:  BADGER HIM

(Maybe Jeff’s dark horse pick for the tournament is Wisconsin???  They do have a good program, but they face a determined Pitt in the first round.  My NCAA Basketball knowledge is very cursory these days.  Michigan is the Weasels, right???  I usually pick teams like Kansas to go all the way.

We had no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “citdh” and “varob” before.  It was fun to see “garlic” again!  Who doesn’t like garlic?  Such a great flavor, and it’s good for you!  David’s answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  It was a masterful jumble.  Jeff’s cartoon was fun too.  I always like when he draws critters.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
