  1. Good Morning, Everyone… 🥊 ZAIRE WE GO AGAIN…🥊

    🎶 In the clearing stands a BOXER…And a FIGHTER by his trade…And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down and cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame.”I am leaving, I am leaving…”But the fighter still remains, he still remains…🎶 “The Boxer” – Simon & Garfunkel 1965 https://tinyurl.com/3tpthb3u

    🥊 October 1974, and there was all the hype,
    For some it was a HOBBY…but then there was the type….
    Who thought boxing UTOPIA, and it was all a thrill,
    To see two boxing giants who were going for the kill…
    The trash talk…was it USEFUL? It def was for a fact,
    Anticipation for this match…it covered a wide TRACT…
    And when it all was over, the man with all the clout?
    Ali was crowned the champion…’twas all ABOUT A BOUT! 🥊

    October 30th, 1974. The Rumble in the Jungle. Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman…Did the paper cover it? Uh…yes it did…And it was definitely a front page story…And you can read all A-BOUT it here… https://tinyurl.com/3aktaj9h

    Our words…Once again today…nothing to write home ABOUT. All old favorites…But again, as yesterday, all our anagrams are coming up as new. And except for an Early Bird seeing Output instead of UTOPIA, it was a quick finish… The solve? A BOUT as easy as it gets..They KNOCKed it OUT in no time FLAT…ABOUT A BOUT! A great PUNCH line!

    As for our cartoon, we have our characters talking about the fight making front page news, and The Trib’s front page headline reads…”Ali Wins By KO In 8”..and the rest is history…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe..and I’m throwing in the towel… 🥊 🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 💡 It started as a HOBBY, and while it might not be UTOPIA, it paid the bills, so it was USEFUL..he drew up second TRACT plans for electrical layouts, and he called his company…”WATT’S IT ALL ABOUT…ABOUT”💡

    🥊 The object was to write about a championship fight,
    The HOBBY House’s contest would take place on Friday night…
    He’s glad he did some reading, it was USEFUL in his quest,
    To attain his UTOPIA, and come out as the best…
    He felt a certain nervousness…digestive TRACT amiss,
    But stick it out he has to do…for writing is his bliss…
    His confidence had to stay put…there’s no room for some doubt…
    And he’s titling his entry…”Boxing…All ABOUT A BOUT”! 🥊

  3. You said what I already had but I couldn’t get to the comments quicker . But hear goes ! What started out as a HOBBY turned into a boxing UTOPIA, and Ali kept going and built a large TRACT in boxing, he found it so USEFUL to give Simon and Garfunkel the material to create one my favorite of their hits 🎶 In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade , and he carries the reminders 🎶 that not every Jumble is ABOUT A ABOUT 🎶 lie la lie , lie la lie la lie la lia , lie la lie 🎶 everyone have a “knockout day” ! I loved this one !!!!

  4. Good morning. Fun jumble today. I backed into Utopia by getting the easy cartoon answer after putting the letters down and seeing the two letters I needed to complete the double words. Enjoyed your post and song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul…Tk you. Have a good one…Be well and stay safe…🥊🙋🏻‍♀️😅

  5. Utopia was hard to reach and that seems about right. I remember the Rumble in the Jungle and Muhammed Ali’s rope-a-dope tactics. I wonder if Jumble team was inspired by the recent Ken Burns documentary on Ali. Hobby first looked like BYOB, probably because it’s my work Friday. Angela knocked it out of the park with “The Boxer” song and that’s all I got today. Have a great weekend. Go Huskers, beat Michigan!

    • LOL…You can never go wrong with BYOB! And “The Boxer”? Tk you…A given, right? Enjoy your day, OO…🥊🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Before looking at empty letter boxes below puzzle cartoon, we initially thought answer might be ABOUT something….investigating further, that middle letter must be an A….and everything fell into place. UTOPIA did take a few extra nano-seconds. It was a great Friday Jumble experience.

    FYI…will be signing off Monday for a few days to experience first hand…a double bypass surgery. A few chest pains led down this path…but will be up and running again soon.

  7. Not sure if this fight was a rout,
    But at the end there was simply no doubt
    That the winner, Ali
    Had managed to be
    The one with the greatest clout!

    • Hi Helen…

      🗣 Ali taunted and teased weeks on end,
      And the trash talk was way round the bend…
      And the fight in Zaire,
      It made things pretty clear…
      That the rope-a-dope def did defend! 🗣

      💰 The good money was put down on Joe,
      Ali laughed…and he put on a show…
      He just bided his time,
      And he made up some rhymes…
      In the end it was Joe with the woe…💰

      🥊 With rope-a-dope under his belt,
      The technique would be key, Ali felt…
      And he let Joe perform,
      ‘Till he unleashed the storm…
      Left and right…and the win it was spelt! 🥊

      🥊 While the fight in the end went 8 rounds,
      All the time we saw Joe punches pound…
      Ali contained his strength,
      While Joe wouldn’t relent…
      Then 2 punches…and Joe hit the ground…🥊

      🗣He had swagger and def a big mouth,
      And he promised to bring the big clout…
      So he floated…then stung,
      New career path he brung…
      History Ali made with this bout! 🗣

  8. Utopia stumped me as well,but after looking that up,the cartoon was a blind solve.The thunder during the night and morning fogged my brain.Yes,I do remember that prize bout!

    • Yes it was, Eleanor…and it’s always so good to see you! Have a great day…Be well and stay safe…🥊🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. No doubt about it, it was an easy puzzle this morning. Paused at utopia (all those vowels!) but otherwise it was a knockout. Wishing all of you a good day.

    • Wayyyy easy…Love your puns, Betty! 👏🏻👏🏻And wishing you a good day too…🥊🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. The answer was easy to solve. I was stunned by UTOPIA. As a young boy I would always listen to the Heavy Weight boxing fights on the radio. My hero was Joe Louis. Unfortunately he was getting older when I started to listen to the fights in1949 but heard all his last fights. The boxer I really didn’t like was Cassius Clay alias Ali although he was one of the greatest boxers we’ve had.
    Take care

    • Seems you’re not alone today, Christian…Utopia’s taking a toll, and it proved to be a thorn in everyone’s side last time it appeared also. Betty may be right…it could be all those vowels. And as far as Ali goes, it appears he wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Especially in his early years. But he did have talent, and he definitely went on to leave his mark on the Boxing world…But you know me…I don’t make the news..I just report it! 😉 Enjoy your day, Sir…Be well and stay safe out there…🥊🙋🏻‍♀️

  12. ABOUT A BOUT sounds like Abbottabad, a place in Pakistan where Obama got rid of Osama in 2011.

    • I thought more along the lines of “bada bing”…but don’t go by me…I just always had a thing for drummers…🥁🙋🏻‍♀️
