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

    No, it was no gimme today. However, I assumed the first word would be FRIENDSHIP(S), given that it was in yesterday’s cryp, and the setter(s) appear to be running thematic puzzles for 2-3 days in a row. And yes, I “guessed” that yesterday’s “friendship” author was Marcus Cusak, till Google straightened me out!

    Thank goodness that “CUD” was “the” and there were lots of t’s and e’s, or I never would have solved it.

    This was a hard one. I kept wanting the author to be “Bette” or “Belle,” but knew the B was wrong. Didn’t see Jesse until the end.
