Jumble Spoiler – 11/01/16

Image result for Cubs hit a double

Visual Description:  The extra base hit.


Clue/Question:  He hurried to second base because he wanted to get there – – –

Image result for Indians in the outfield


(A beautiful baseball pun!  Very apropos for tonight’s Game Six of the 2016 World Series, between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians.  It’s in Cleveland, and the Indians are up 3 games to 2.  Both teams, and their fans, are long suffering, though arguably the Cubs have suffered longer.  I like both teams, though neither of them are “my team”.  In cases like these I usually default to my preference for the National League.  So, I’m rooting for the Cubbies, but I won’t be devastated if the Tribe wins.

None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles came up as new today.  For those of you under the age of 40 “holler” is the proper spelling – and pronunciation – of “holla”.  The answer letter layout was a fun jumble, that actually had me guessing for half a minute.  Sometimes I’m a little slow, folks.  The cartoon shows a great sliding double.  The only minor issue is that this looks like Wrigley Field.  Check out the ivy wall.  Games 3 – 5 were in Chicago.  But tonight, and hopefully tomorrow night, the games will be played in Cleveland.  And, I don’t give a crap who’s payed for “naming rights”, to me it will always be “The Jake”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    FORGOT was the only hard jumble. And the answer sorta came easily with a 2 and 3 letter words.

    Love the pun! I had a little trouble with HOLLER, but the rest were instant. For the final answer, I immediately figured out ON THE and DOUBLE followed from unscrambling the remaining letters. Go Cubs! Winning the World Series in this fashion would be a memorable way to erase 108 years of failure.

    Such a long night!! A long, awesome night of baseball!! A grand World Series! And a super duper jumbler!!!

    I was pulling for the Cubs. The Braves are my heart, followed by Boston. But, I so wanted the Cubs to win…they seemed to play their hearts out, kept going for it. It was the look on their faces, and how they seemed to work together, pull together, support each other. Feelings.

    Take care all! LL
