First thing’s, first: If you haven’t read Billy’s ode in the comments for yesterday’s post, please go read it now. It makes the usual slapdash sniping I do here in the posts look even more half-assed than usual.
Panel one: Have I mentioned I don’t know anything about softball? I have? OK, good. Can someone please explain to me why Amy, Amy Lange is standing so far up in the batter’s box? I don’t think we can attribute this to an attempt to show perspective.
Panel two: I don’t need to understand much about softball to know that if you dive at a sixty degree angle to the path of the ball, you ain’t gonna make the play.
Panel three: As noted in the title, who are these mystery people? I’m guessing that, without any other clues, the guy on the left is probably named Awesome Pickens and everything that happens to him is somehow suggestive of awesomeness. I would’ve thought the girl in the middle was Amy, Amy Lange, but where are her freckles? And, that dude on the right? Let’s see: Tonsure? Tousled forelocks? Why, hello, Keegan! Long time no see!
