Jumble Spoiler – 01/27/22

The joys of coaching a youth girls basketball team

Visual Description:  Way to participate, girls!

LEYID  =  YIELD,  PZTAO  =  TOPAZ,  NOIWDW  =  WINDOW,  ONBTEN  =  BONNET   —   Giving us:  YLDOAWNONN

Clue/Question:  They ended the season with just a single victory, which was their – – –

Girls Basketball Camp-061316.028 - GCU Today

Answer:  WON AND ONLY

(Better than finishing 0 and . . . whatever!  If the guys had gone for the E in YIELD, instead of the L, and had gotten rid of the Y, and then added the D in WINDOW the answer could’ve also been “WON” AND DONE, as it was the last game of the season.  Yeah, they’d have to tweak the clue/question too, but Hoyt and Knurek are no slouches.  They can store this idea away for future usage.  Gratis.

Of course we have seen all of these clue words before.  We’ve even seen the jumble “LEYID” in previous Jumbles.  But the other three jumbles appear to be new.  None of them tripped me up any.  The answer letter layout was a tony ten letter jumble.  I thought it was WONderfully cryptic!  I think quotation marks always make for a quicker solve.

Cute cartoon of the young girls’ basketball team, and their coach.  The smiles on their faces say it all.  Winning feels good!  LOL!  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/27/22

Arthur Goldberg – The Reader's Catalog

Modern diplomats approach every problem with an open mouth.”   —   Arthur Goldberg

(As with most people I agree with some things that he said and did, but disagree with others.  I really wish that he had stayed on the Supreme Court, and not become the Ambassador to the United Nations.  I think – overall – he would have been a greater asset to the world as a Supreme Court Justice.  This was a difficult Cryptoquote to get started.  No single letter words, and no words ending in E.  The OIOBS sure looked like it was going to be EVERY, but I wasn’t sure until I saw ARTHUR.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
