Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition.”   —   Jesse Owens

(A marvelous quote from a marvelous American athlete!  One of the best of all time!  This appears to be our first Jesse Owens quote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  Seeing his, name early on, helped me in solving this not so easy Cryptoquote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ONEHIT WONDER

(What a woman!  Too bad the one in this past year’s movie was once in the IDF.  That’s why I boycotted the movie.  I’m pretty much superheroed out anyway.  I’ll watch them on cable, but I won’t spend my time – and money – to see them in theaters.  She’s a pretty girl, and I’d like to like her.  But, I also un-fanned myself from  Scarlett Johansson, for choosing Soda Stream over being an ambassador for Oxfam.  Yer uncle won’t stand for injustice, no matter that they’re a so-called “ally” and “the only true democracy in the Middle East”I’ll stick with Lynda Carter, thank you.

We’re 0 – 3 for new clue word days in 2018, but we’re 4 – 4 for new jumbles today.  I had to back into “disown” for some reason.  I don’t think I have a bias towards the word, so I’ll just have to credit Hoyt’s superior jumbling of the word.  I’ve always enjoyed the word “stodgy”.  It’s a very descriptive word.  The answer letter layout was a super jumble!  Without Jeff’s great cartoon, and the clue/question, it would have been difficult to un-jumble it to the answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
