CARTOON ANSWER:  THE TELEVISED POOL TOURNAMENT BEGAN – – –

NC   OT   HRI   UGE   =     RIGHT ON CUE 

Good Morning, Everyone!           ๐ŸŽฑ CUE DO SOMETHING TO ME ๐ŸŽฑ

๐ŸŽถ Wake up Maggie I think I got something to say to you…I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school…Or steal my Daddy’s CUE and make a living out of PLAYING POOL..๐ŸŽถ “Maggie May” – Rod Stewart 1971 https://tinyurl.com/yd4ndwzq

๐ŸŽฑ You know today there’s nothing that you can’t see on TV,
From situation comedy to absurd reality…
So should Pool be your FANCY, just search ABOUT your screen
And guaranteed you’ll come across a show to suit your needs.
Get comfortable and settle in with drinks and with a snack,
Some SHRIMP, a BURGER, whatever…and watch as players rack…
A Tournament in full swing, entertainment just for you…
Check listings so that you can watch and be just RIGHT ON CUE! ๐ŸŽฑ

๐ŸŽถCUE do something to be…Something that simply mystifies me…๐ŸŽถ Well, maybe not today. With four Sweet Repeats, we find ourselves in very good company. No SCRATCHING our heads, or juggling BALLS…it was all fair GAME. One or two of the Early Birds FELT a little tic with SHRIMP, and maybe took an extra BITE out of BURGER…but all in all? We saw them all in 2018, and it was easy to STICK with them! So, CUE the Music..It’s time to HUSTLE over to the MAIN EVENT!

While we’ve visited POOL ROOMS twice this past year, today we’re UPPING our GAME. Finding ourselves at a TELEVISED POOL TOURNAMENT, I’m figuring Jeff’s PLACEd us in Vegas…We see a Gray tuxedoed announcer, facing the Camera and ready to CUE the ACTION. Our PLAYER, shown LINING UP his BREAKING SHOT, is heard asking..”Now“? In 3-2-1…NOW! Action..RIGHT ON CUE! Good one, David! You’re always a WINNER!

Ok, eye candy…I think I’ll try an aBRIDIGEd version today. Black silhouetted spectators behind the ropes. Our PLAYER, dressed in a Blue shirt and Black Bow Tie, stands ready to BREAK loose…Our mustachioed Announcer, smiling, but looking a little CUEless, has his finger raised INDEXcating it’s time to start SHOOTing…On the Camera, we see a Red TelePrompTer, and Jeff’s showing the Announcers’ image on the filming side… But the MONEY SHOT? Look real closely at the Microphone. The Networks Logo? It’s an 8 BALL in motion! We gotta’ CHALK that up to Jeff’s whimsy! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And rememberโ€ฆDonโ€™t let anyone CALL the SHOTS for you in lifeโ€ฆTake a STANCE, and a page from Teddy Rooseveltโ€™s PLAY Bookโ€ฆSpeak softlyโ€ฆand carry a BIG STICK! ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  1. Good morning. No problem with three of the words but did take an extra bite at Burger. In fact,I got the cartoon answer on the blind and realized the three letters I needed for a completion and hence ,the final word. Another cute remark. Well done Mike,short and concise. Angela great job from beginning to end. Until tomorrow stay well.

  2. Count me in with Paul & Chuck pondering over burger. I too saw berger and figured it out after I had completed the cartoon answer. It always surprises me when a seemingly simple word can trip me up. Itโ€™s 42 degrees in S.F. This morning Angela so out come the gloves and/or mittens. Happy Wednesday everyone.

And I’m enjoying the takes on this today, seeing everyone’s different TASTE! But I changed it up…
      The Dutch BURGER, insisted he be addressed as such, even though it was just a FANCY name ABOUT a council freeman…and ‘oft times behind his back he was really referred to as the Little SHRIMP! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  3. Hi all – SHRIMP was the only thing to take an extra look until I saw the SH that could go together.

    Personally, Iโ€™d rather watch televised darts or curling than pool.
    Hope everyoneโ€™s recovered from the holidays and has a great day today.

    Thanks for the details Angela. Wouldnโ€™t have seen that logo.
    ๐ŸŽตโ€Or find myself a rock โ€˜n roll band
    That needs a helping handโ€๐ŸŽต. Nice, and that song also comes in handy for posting in late September.

    • Televised Darts? What’s your POINT? ๐Ÿ˜‚ ..๐ŸŽถ Hey, G…๐ŸŽถI laughed at all of your jokes…๐ŸŽถ, but besides the song’s late September lyric line, am I missing something? You know I’m beat, you’ll have to give me a hint…You’re welcome on the 8-Ball, and I’m glad you’re BEHIND it! ๐Ÿ˜‚ TBT, I was RACKed with laughter this morning when I zoomed in on it. I just FELT for sure that Jeff’d SCRATCH one out for us! Hope you’re having a good one, Bud! ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • No, just the โ€œLate Septemberโ€ made it suitable. I was surprised when I looked back then to see that everyone has the lyric as โ€œlaughed at all of your jokesโ€. Itโ€™s actually โ€œI laughed at PART of your jokesโ€ which to me has always made it much more sly, understated, realistic and honest, and one of my favorites. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

      • It may SOUND like that was his intent, but Sir Rod had nothing sly or understated going on, when he reminisced to pen that one, that’s for sure. You know the back story right? Her name MAY not have been Maggie, but there was no MAYbe about her doing a number on him. He was young, she was older. He was “new” she wasn’t. She “had her way with him” (Family Blog)! and cast him aside without a second thought…Sort of a case of “Nod, Bod..thank you Rod”! And he never forgot it…Boy only laughed to hide his real emotions…๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป
