Visual Description:  Dealing with off-season gains.

RUKNT  =  TRUNK,  UTOBA  =  ABOUT,  SKYCOT  =  STOCKY,  CRAFTO  =  FACTOR   —   Giving us:  RNKABOCKACT

Clue/Question:  The sprinter was losing races and needed to train harder to get his career – – –

Answer:  BACK ON TRACK

(Major groan!  Not just because it’s a stinky pun, but it just seems so cliché.  Meh.  All old favorite clue words today, with only “crafto” being a definite return jumble.  I appreciated the letter groupings though.  It makes my posting job just a little easier.  The answer letter layout might have been the best jumble in the puzzle, but the clue/question and the cartoon were both very leading.  Fun cartoon though.  Reminds me a little of the Raiders’ kicker, Sebastian Janikowski.  At least the way he used to be.  A hard partier, with a questionable diet, for a professional athlete.  I think the kicker, Nigel Gruff,  in the movie “The Replacements” was loosely patterned after him.  Talk about cliché?!  I know, but I just LOVE that movie!  Great cast, football, love story, comedy and music.  It’s got it all.  Not to mention the gorgeous girl next door, Brooke Langton!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The person who is brutally honest enjoys the brutality quite as much as the honesty.”   —   Richard J. Needham

(“Possibly more.” is the rest of the quote.  A lot of people just seem to lack that little filter that prevents us from saying hurtful, yet technically honest, things to each other.  I’m sure it’s more learned behavior, than an actual physical aspect of the brain.  With those kind of people you just take what they say with a grain of salt.  But others definitely adopt the behavior on purpose.  They try to candy coat it by calling it refreshingly honest, but there is definitely an underlying bitterness to it.  We all should follow the golden rule, and try to choose our words thoughtfully.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
