  1. Hi Everyone –
    Palindrome day – very cool! I didn’t know this. I remember 1961, which I loved because you could turn it upside down.
    I thought the answer was easy for a Sunday, but I had to back into Cohort.

    • Hi Caroline – I remember my teacher holding a piece of paper with 1961 written on it and turning it upside down to demonstrate that, and noting that the last time it had happened was 1881. Then he asked us when it would happen again, and the answer was –

      — SPOILER ALERT —

      not until the year 6009!

  2. Hi all – Got the answer from the cartoon and all the words except COHORT. Had to back into it from the required letters after seeing a bunch of other possibilities like TORCH, CROTCH, CHEROOT and the most strange one (but maybe the most appropriate for today), Tommy PROTHRO, who I once saw coach an LA Rams game against the Forty Niners in the ‘70’s.
    I’m sure I’ve been stuck on Cohort before, because I remember referencing the song that uses it – The Band’s “The Moon Struck One”.

    Have a great Super Bowl Sunday, everyone. Scott Ostler had this to say in The Chronicle:
    “Culture clash:
    It’s middle America (literally) vs. the krazy koastal kooks.
    Cue up Wilbert Harrison’s “Kansas City” and Otis Redding’s “Sittin’ On The Dock of the Bay,” and grab some popcorn. This feels like a classic.”

    “The KNIGHT was KICKING HIMSELF for ever trusting his COHORT to be his page, and had to FORBID him from ever working on his armor again after he had been found GUILTY of taking a bribe and sabotaging the GASKET in the seat MODULE”.

  3. Cartoon answer was a given. Cohort was the only word that gave me pause. Hope the Krazy Koastal Kooks bring home the trophy, Steve. And today is 02/02/2020 – not a palindrome but kind of unusual nonetheless. Happy Super Sunday to all.

    • A BBC article also noted that the date is a palindrome if you write it with a leading zero 02/02/2020, and that’s true for us who write month-day-year, as well as most of the rest of the world that writes day-month-year. The last time it happened was 11/11/1111, and the next is 12/12/2121.
      Today is also day number 33 of the year (also a palindrome), and there are 333 days left in the year (yet another).

      • NP! I had trouble adjusting the ink…and I had no time to spend on it, but of all the articles I scanned this morning it was the most detailed. An amazing date, that’s for sure. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hi Professor…Obvious it is…but I’m wondering if a non-football fan would think so…Enjoy the game! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. 🏈 You can’t help feeling GUILTY when you let a COHORT down
    You want to blow a GASKET, and you stand there with a frown
    No KNIGHT in shining armor, the MODULE now unmet
    Yep God FORBID you shank the ball…it’s nothing but regret
    The deed is done, no turning back…the book goes on the shelf
    A punter’s feeling bummed for sure and he’s KICKING HIMSELF🏈
    ….Jake Bailey? 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. What my mom and I do is create little cards with the letters on them, then shuffle them until something starts to click. As I solve each word, I save the letters I need for the final jumble below. It seems to help a lot! Just a thought!
