Very good!  Kudos to both of you.  I got busy and wasn't able to get back with the key letters and the final answer.  Of course, the second word was the reason I posted it.

Take the I and E from poise, the I from whirl, the V and E from beaver and the T and D from stodgy for the final answer..........that is I E I V E T D.  And the clue is "The Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees on 12-26-1919.  The problem was that he later -------.  The picture shows Babe after a big hit saying "I love coming back to Boston".

bad earl + bad boy + mixed up letter = coal for next Christmas too!

Yes, I see where I made the mistake.  There should not be two E's.  One of them was supposed to be an S.

So, the final answer should have the following letters in it........ I S I V E T D

This is what Babe Ruth did to Boston for years while he was a Yankee.  By the way, did anyone notice that this answer was a "day in sports history" bit of trivia.  He was traded the day after Christmas and this jumble was on the day after Christmas. 

Can you tell that I'm really having fun with special days in top history?  lincolnrick and ta0, when did you first throw a top?  Or when did you learn a new trick or make up a new one or something special like that?
