(Uh oh!  Jeff and David are likely a bit peeved with yer uncle.  With Thursday’s posted Jumble Spoiler, I – inadvertently – gave a clue to today’s answer, by referring to ABC’s Wide World of Sports.  Of course, today’s answer is a play on words to the second part of the slogan that the show made famous, during its opening credits.  “The thrill of victory!  And, the agony of defeat.”  Who remembers what constituted  the agony of defeat???  I’m sure that plenty of you know this.

No new clue words again today, but everything was nicely jumbled.  I especially liked the jumbling of “banter” and “utopia”  Maybe some of you came here to get the unscrambling of “ipouta”.  I wouldn’t be surprised.  It’s a fairly tough jumble!  The answer letter layout was sweet.  No hints there.  And, a swell cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.  Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.)   —   YUR
