PGT   NSE   IMI   ANO   IA   THT  =   AT THIS POINT IN THE GAME

Good Morning, Everyone!             ⚽️ GO FOR THE GOAL! ⚽️

I get no KICK from champagne…Mere alcohol, it doesn’t move me at all…So tell me why should it be true…That I get a KICK out of you. Yeah, I get a KICK…yes, you give me a boost…yea, I get a KICK out of you…🎶 “I Get a Kick Out of You” – Frank Sinatra  1962    https://tinyurl.com/y75afq2w

⚽️ The PLIGHT of any sportsman is to THWART the other team,
In Soccer it’s that CANNON shot to help you see your dream…
UNWISE to get too cocky, INFAMY is not the goal,
Steady as a rock, a SIMILE one should behold….
It’s playing for the team that counts…that is the player’s fame,
You score for one,  you score for all…AT THIS POINT IN THE GAME ⚽️

Once again today, we have a word that I could swear we’ve solved here before, yet I can’t find it amongst the listings: SIMILE. Most likely I’ve seen it while playing David and Jeff’s great JUST JUMBLE game, and I associated it with here. Our other five words are all old favorites, with THWART being the most recent, from August 26th,’18. A little quirk…That day, a Sunday also, POINT was one of the answer words. And it just so happens, that THWART was the only word that THWARTED a few of the Early Birds this morning. They knew the word, but they had trouble spelling it…It’s that “W” sound…and they wanted to start off with “TW“. The rest were all easy solves, with our oldest word being INFAMY, making its 7th appearance today, and dating back to 2015. Ok, enough BOUNCING around in the Archives…Let’s SCORE some POINTS with our cartoon…

Finding ourselves once more outdoors, today we’re on a SOCCER Field, watching the JUMBLERS play the SUDOKUS. The Jumblers are seen scoring the first GOAL, and understandably celebrating. The GOAL KEEPER  for the Sudokus is also seen, dramatically experiencing the agony of deFEET. We’re asked that if the Jumblers scored the first goal, they were ahead..? AT THIS POINT IN THE GAME! A good enough answer, but a few of the Early Birds got “SOME” and “THAT” into their HEADs...At “SOME” point, At “THAT” point…and that caused a bit of a slowdown, since we had only one M, but we did have “T’s”. And the phrasing of both choices made sense, too. The key though? …The other Jumbler player saying…”Good way to “START“. THAT gave me THIS…As I said, easy enough, but there were a few BALLS in the air with THIS ONE. And only THIS was the KEEPER!

OK, eye candy. The panel is shaded in Green. We have our cheering fans blackened in silhouette, with one holding a Red JUMBLERS pennant aloft. The SCOREboard is lit in Yellow. The Sudoku player, dressed in Red, is shown between the GOALposts, and appears to be wailing and tugging at his hair, totally up in ARMS. It’s just one GOAL! Boy, he’ll really be KICKING himself if this KEEPS up! He really needs to USE HIS HEAD, and calm down. Our Jumbler players, dressed in Green, one RUNNING, one kneeling, are both wearing wide grins…and Gold “J” emblems on the right side of their jerseys. The Player who SCORED is wearing a Gold headband, and matching wristbands. It all makes for a great picture, but nothing’s really getting into my HEAD this morning I think I’ll just PASS…and THROW IN THE TOWEL. So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone..Get out there, KICK up your heels…and have a BALL! ⚽️🙋🏻
