Answer:  BIT OF A YENTA?  No, it’s:  MATCHMAKER

(For whatever reason, many of the songs from Fiddler On The Roof really stay with you.  They are very catchy tunes.  I guess that’s a tribute to Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s talents.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, and we have definitely seen one of today’s jumbles before.  They’ve used TUCEA for “acute” before.  It took me a few seconds to realize something was “kosher”.  The answer letter layout was a well crafted jumble.   Nothing about it hinted towards the answer.  I’ve always been fond of the sports themed cartoons.  How do you think John McEnroe would do against Serena Williams?  There was some talk last year about reviving a kind of Bobby Riggs – Billie Jean King battle of the sexes grudge match.  But, I think Mac chickened out!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
