Cryptoquote Solved – 08/19/22

Seabiscuit and the World's Best Racehorses | FlipGeeks

And though she be but little, she is fierce.”   —   Shakespeare

(In the movie “Seabiscuit” the Toby Maguire character changes “she” to “he” to describe Seabiscuit to a reporter.  Not being the biggest Shakespeare pupil, I never gave the line a second thought!  Now I know better.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 08/19/22

New WILSON 34" A900 CATCHER'S MITT Baseball & Softball / Catchers Gloves

Visual Description:  Mitts in a snit.

CNASK  =  SNACK,  CHAMT  =  MATCH,  NOUFED  =  FONDUE,  RWUFOR  =  FURROW   —   Giving us:  SAKMAHFNDEFRRO

Clue/Question:  After the game, the baseball gloves’ conversation included – – –

Rawlings Heart of the Hide Limited Series 217 11.75" Infield Glove  PRO2175-13SBC (2021)

Answer:  OFFHAND REMARKS

(The Jumble, like baseball, is an American Classic!  For folks like us, it’s our national pastime.  You have to have that attitude of:  winners in life don’t always win; they just don’t give up.  Today’s Jumble is a great example of that.  The individual clue words were probably a quick solve for you, as they were for me.  But that fourteen letter answer letter layout jumble was a bit of a beast!  Nothing really jumps out at you.  After a minute, or two, I keyed in on:  there only being four vowels, there were two F’s, and no C to go along with the K.  Then, with the dialog and the cartoon of the two gloves, it all fell into place, right into my bare hands.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumble were reruns as well, with only “rwufor” coming up as new, for me.  I’m liking these longer final answers!

Cute cartoon of the reporter interviewing the baseball player in the locker-room, after what was likely a loss.  In the foreground, the catcher’s mitt is kind of giving it to the fielder’s glove.  And, the fielder’s glove is trying to give it right back to him.  Catchers have to be fearless, and it’s arguably the hardest position in baseball.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
