  1. Good Morning, Everyone…. ⚾️ I hope this finds you well.⚾️

    🎶 Ooohh –PUT ME IN COACH…I’m ready to play today…PUT ME IN COACH…I’m ready to play, today…Look at me, I can be, Centerfield…🎶…“Centerfield” – John Fogerty 1985 https://tinyurl.com/y4yjx3rq

    ⚾️ UNWISE to have a beef with it, it’s only a short flight,
    And since my kid has COLIC, I’ve been awake all night
    So still hearing that THUMP, thump sound…it really is a racket
    I’m glad I brought some Tylenol…it’s in the little PACKET
    And figuring way in the back there’ll be much less approach…
    I’m hoping I can get some sleep…so yeah PUT ME IN COACH! ⚾️

    Somebody may have dropped the ball with the Jumblers reservations, but that Centerfielder’s not one to balk…So like any team player, if push comes to glove? He just says..PUT ME IN COACH!

    Here’s to a good day, Everyone. Be well and stay safe out there…⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤦🏻‍♀️ She knew her neighbor loved that song, but she’d had enough of the constant THUMP of it’s chorus, 🎶PUT ME IN COACH🎶…and after being up all night with the baby who had COLIC, she reached for an ice PACKET for her headache…and wondered if it’d be UNWISE to call and ask him to can the music…🤦🏻‍♀️

    ⚾️ He still heard talk about it…the THUMP that he was served,
    The Skipper pulled him early, his ball just wouldn’t curve…
    He held the rosin PACKET, and hoped he’d keep his place,
    He wanted to get out and pitch…stay in this pennant race…
    He didn’t get much sleep last night, the baby still was sick,
    Poor kid suffering with COLIC…and nothing did the trick
    Was he still in rotation…would the Skip think it UNWISE
    To let him have another shot…to prove to all the guys…
    That he still had his thunder…despite all the reproach
    He wondered if he had the guts to say…PUT ME IN COACH…⚾️

  3. Good morning. Not our typical Monday give me which made it much better. Loved your song choice and the cartoon answer which was brilliant. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  4. They have put me in COACH hundreds of times, I have often THUMPed my head getting in and out of my seat. If I had COLIC it would be UNWISE to sit in the middle seat, but I don’t…. Loved the puzzle solution. I need to remember the ‘rule of un’ cause I miss many words with ‘un’. All told a very enjoyable Jumble!

  5. Hi all – I put IC at the end as usual and got COLIC (not literally), and used the UN trick for UNWISE. At first I thought they were trying to buy tickets for a ball game and thought “bleachers” or something like that, but when I realized what the situation actually was it gave COACH and the letter layout gave the rest – either US or ME in coach.

    Couldn’t be any other choice for the song Angela. Local (El Cerrito) boy and huge A’s fan John Fogerty.

    I guess “coach” must have been replaced by “economy class” about the same time Junior High School became Middle School.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “It might be UNWISE to THUMP your baby on the back to relieve COLIC before trying a PACKET of herbal tea or a simple change of position.”

    • Definitely not. A given…But what Fogerty? 75? Hard to believe. He looks great…Maybe he’s got that Dorian Gray thing going on…Whatever it is, I applaud him…Cento Anni! 🍷 ..And I’ll definitely have whatever he’s drinking! Be well, Steve. Stay safe. ⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I couldn’t tell, but if there’s anyone that could pull it off, it’s probably him. Unlike Ah-nold, he was winning competitions pre-steroids.

      • I think it’s probably 8-10 years old. His mustache was still completely dark. And you can tell he never messed with steroids, because he never bulked up half as much as Arnold did. Probably why he aged a lot more gracefully. Only Arnold, at 73 is just a puppy compared to him…😉 but even with the face work, he’s not looking as good as Connery, IMO. 🤷🏻‍♀️
