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

    Hi, UR. Yes, I’m with you…both Danish and Mettle appear to be new.
    And yes…LAIHEN has been used…twice, in 2015: August 28th, and again on October 4th.
    Also, on August 5th, 2018, the puzzle’s answer was EXPERT IN HIS FIELD.
    But Zonker? The grass and weed, Tru…deau you know the man hates to work! 😉 Be well, stay safe. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    Are the police aware than when riots breakout during, or after, their dealing with two different groups of people with different agenda ?

    The protesters are there to highlight a political issue for which they want the public and political leaders to answer.

    But, in the shadows are different groups who aren’t connected with and aren’t interested in the protest per se, but endeavor to use the protest to mask nefarious and/or illegal activities.

    In Atlanta, for instance, the protestors departed within a half hour after sundown as it was about to turn dark. Once it was dark, the rioters trashed Lenox Square Mall and a few surrounding stores.

    Jesus, please come back ! We need you.

    I think the police in general are aware of the provocateurs, but they blend in well with the more legitimate protesters. They also instigate some of the – otherwise – legitimate protesters to be more confrontational. It’s a mess, because it doesn’t take all that much for a peaceful gathering to turn into a riotous mob. — YUR

    Mayor Richard J. Daley, a master of malapropisms, speaking to reporters regarding riots during the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago in August 1968:

    “Gentlemen, let’s get this thing straight, once and for all. The policeman is not here to *create* disorder. The policeman is here to *preserve* disorder.”

    Yes, he likely meant to say “preserve order,” but that’s not what he said, and many saw this as a Freudian slip.

    Many US cities were gripped with rioting in 1967 and 1968 which recent events recall.

    I had much more trouble with DANISH than with the rest of the puzzle combined.

    Hello YUR
    I am a true Jumble follower and closely track the words used. I would say that “mettle” and “danish” are new. “danish” was troubling for me, given it is a proper name.
    So you know, I have duplicated the words from your site, that go back to March 17, 2008. This includes all the Sunday words. Thank you for all the work you put into this.

    I have very strong memories of 1967 and 1968. Scary times for a 10 year old boy, whose mother worked in a depressed, mainly black section of the inner city. Didn’t scare her a bit though.

    Yes, DANISH was no piece of cake! — YUR
