Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do.  There can be no courage unless you’re scared.”   —   Eddie Rickenbacker

(We had this exact quote, eleven years ago today, on 05/31/09, which just so happened to be a Sunday!  Is Rebecca testing us?  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 05/31/20

Pete Flynn, legendary Mets groundskeeper who started working with ...

Visual Description:  Dealing with weed was a chronic problem!

LAIHEN  =  INHALE,  CSTIEB  =  BISECT,  VERORF  =  FERVOR,  SANDHI  =  DANISH,  TEMELT  =  METTLE,  XFERPI  =  PREFIX   —   Giving us:  IHSEFERDNITLEPIX

Clue/Question:  The soccer stadium’s groundskeeper was an – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (6-letters) (2-letters) (3-letters) (5-letters)

Groundskeeper Willie Leak has been tending to RFK Stadium for 50 ...

Answer:  EXPERT IN HIS FIELD

(And, his assistant was outstanding in his field!  There are scads of puns in the sphere of fields.  It’s really a wide range.  Hey!  Do you kids think Zonker Harris would make a good groundskeeper, or greenskeeper?  He knows a thing or two about grass and weed, ya know?

Just yesterday, I received an updated version of the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  Despite that, or maybe just coincidentally, we appear to have two brand new clue words today, in “danish” and “mettle”.  Danish actually seems vaguely familiar to me.  Can our diligent research readers confirm, or deny, my suspicion?  We’ve seen the jumble “laihen” sometime in the past, but the other five jumbles came up as new for me.  It took me a few seconds to put together “bisect”.  The answer letter layout was an impressive sixteen letter jumble.  For about two seconds, I was a little intimidated by it.  But, I knew that the final answer started with a vowel, which helped me to see EXPERT.  The rest fell right into place.

Fine stadium cartoon.  The expert really gets right down into it.  Hopefully, we’ll be seeing some sporting events real soon.  I can’t get too jazzed for NASCAR, Korean baseball, or German league soccer.  I need me some MLB!  Be well, stay safe and do good, folks.)   —   YUR
