Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/13/21

George Allen (1918-1990) - Find A Grave Memorial

Every time you win, you’re reborn; when you lose, you die a little.”   —   George Allen Sr.

(When I was a kid, and a little unsettled as a serious football fan, I was a fan of the Washington Redskins.  I know they no longer go by that name – 😥 – but that was their name back in the early 1970s.  George Allen was famous for putting together a team of almost all veterans.  They were nicknamed “The Over-the-Hill Gang“!  They made it to Super Bowl VII, with a record of 11-3.  There were only 14 games in a season back then.  They lost to the undefeated Miami Dolphins, but they were fun to watch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/13/21

Al Roker Trying to Break Weather Report World Record

Visual Description:  Adults are talking.

IMCCO  =  COMIC,  OLAKA  =  KOALA,  DAHISR  =  RADISH,  NIUMEM  =  IMMUNE   —   Giving us:  CCKARHINE

Clue/Question:  The weatherman predicted wet weather and was wrong, so he gave viewers a – – –

Inside Dylan Dreyer's Pregnancy Complications With Her Third Child

Answer:  RAIN CHECK

(When my supermarket is out of a sale item I often ask the customer service desk for a rain check!  They’re usually good for a few weeks.  I’m not sure, but I think the phrase originated with baseball a long time ago.  I think they’re fairly rare in MLB games these days, as it’s tough to reschedule a rained out game in a 162 game season.  But the New York Mets had a lot of them this past year, resulting in a number of doubleheaders.  Lots of bad weather in the early spring!

There are no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “olaka” in earlier Jumbles.  I got them all pretty quickly.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine – inning? – jumble.  It was pleasantly cryptic.

Nice newscast cartoon.  The weatherman looks a little like NBC’s Al Roker, but not exactly.  But Al is never wrong!  And neither is Dylan Dreyer.  She’s too cute to be wrong.  Well, accept for being a Patriots fan.  Ugh!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
