Catch Up With Random Thoughts

Filed under: basketball, Coach Kaz, Gil Thorp, Recycled art, The Bucket — nedryerson @ 7:50 am


P1: Shelby Hunter. Take her to The Bucket and hook her up to the rich dairy tube.

P2: The Bucket Featuring the Burger Plop.

P3: Mia Meeks. You’re up. Provide the sad back story of Scott’s ill fated little brother.


P1: Features background chow down by Hotdog McSportcoat.

P2: Loved bright colors. Loved to laugh. Loved walks in the rain. Loved mushing up his ice cream. Speaking of ice cream, take it easy on that shake, Shelby. You’re gonna suck your face right into that straw!

P3: Whoa Shelby, is that a milkshake or pipe bomb? (features drive-by by Flatty McSquarebutt) Oh, and Boo?


P1: Ms. Pinky, Jamjar, Screech and Phranc.

P2: Is that Scott getting de-tonsiled by the Corcoran player?

P3: Corcoran defender has a 360 degree rotating wrist?


P1: What are we looking at? Gil talking to the team? During a game? What is this strange practice?

P2: Boo Go Bonk!

P3: Step in, Kaz. Gil’s coaching gland is depleted already. Go over to Bonker McBoo and put your hand on his leg. No, your own leg. No wait, better just take an extra leg over there to put your hand on.


P1: Good game, Brian Keith.

P2: All the way from Sherwood Forest?

P3: A Paige Candy connection.


Thanks for enduring the laziest format. Happy Holidays everybody.



  1. 12/19 P3: Cameo appearance by Alfreda E. Neuman
    12/21 P1: Randy adolescents with the banner are cheering a group of women bussed in from Milford Sr Center.
    Happy Holidays Ned and all. “Time for goodness!”

  3. Started to post on the earlier thread then saw this one. Welcome to Syracuse! These Mfnrd teams sure do travel a lot. After Corcoran and Nottingham, look for Henninger, Bishop Ludden, and maybe even CBA.

  4. Next stop, Cardinal Mooney.

  5. Ned cadges the secret Mfnrd basketball schedule. Now, Ned, which Mooney? Ohio, Florida, or Michigan?

    Comment by vaganova — December 24, 2012 @ 12:21 pm

  6. Yes!

  7. Be that way, Ned. But I have figured out how Mfnrd manages all this expensive travel– away games in all parts of the country. Does anyone remember a classroom scene in GT? We see practice, games, gym class now and then, and lots of scenes at lockers, in the cafeteria, and the Bucket. But we don’t see classrooms because Mfnrd does not have academic classes– the whole school budget goes to the athletic department.

  8. and to Gil’s bar tab……..

    Comment by Knoxy — December 24, 2012 @ 2:33 pm

  9. Of course, Knoxy. Stupid of me to overlook that.

  10. It’s a constant gripe I have with GT, similar strips, and sitcoms. Not that we seldom see a classroom, but that the kids have so much free time during the school day.
    I hate to do a “back when I was in school” but, our hallways were crammed for 5 minutes of every 60, and then almost empty. You were supposed to BE someplace.

  11. Tomorrow is the annual, infamous “Happy Holidays” strip. Could the Thorp children make an appearance? Will Gil have a big mug of “eggnog” in his hand? Will Mimi be wearing her “Mrs. Claus” lingerie from Adam and Eve? We will know tomorrow!

  12. 12/21 P1: It’s Pat! Again! HRONK! FOOZLE!
