Worst Overprotective Brother Ever and Stupid Questions at the Coffee Cantina

February 7, 2014


So, after leaving a trail of deconstructed faces across the Valley Conference, Wynn’s relentless bloodlust is assuaged by a ten second apology? Sure, why not?

How about that scene we see in panel three… I love that the screen brightness setting is at ‘tanning bed’ because you certainly wouldn’t want whatever “Keeg” has to see to be shown at anything less than retina searing illumination.

Oh, and you say you found this online, eh? I don’t usually post these after seeing the next day’s strip – wouldn’t want to kill the suspense and all – but I wonder if that statement might just set up a non-sequitur in Saturday’s strip. No, the authors care much too much about linearity, continuity and plain common sense for that to happen.

“You gonna post the video?”

“You mean the one that’s already online? What else would I do with it?”

“Couldn’t you delete it? That would make sure it never was seen again, right? Isn’t that how the internet works?”

Meh… In other news, Gil appears to be rolling through the Valley so it will be interesting to see how they miss the playdowns. Marty and Gil make a rare appearance replete with a reasonably freaky hand reaching from below to strangle Marty while Gil’s alcoholism has now progressed to the paranoid delusional stage. While, apropos of nothing, we are for no clear reason told that Scott ‘Birdbrain’ Fowler had a good game. Presumably, he’s now suffering from delusions of seeing his dead brother reincarnated as a chipmunk or something.



  1. Didn’t know that Scott had a “dead brother” but then I don’t follow the strip much…..unlike the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, when I read it religiously !

  2. Yeah, it was last year’s basketball plot I think. Scott was having a hard time dealing with the death of his younger brother but he started seeing peacock’s, jumped to the logical conclusion that the birds were his little bro reincarnated and started shooting lights out. His girlfriend at the time, Mia, also got in on the action. It was basically a somewhat sillier version of the M tattoos plotline.

    Update: Here’s a brief rundown for the curious and/or bored.

  3. Wow, Scott Fowler’s shot is totally flat, just like this story arc. I’m really having a hard time getting excited about it, unlike the St. Fabe’s boys and Wendy’s wardrobe malfunction.

  4. Is this Scott Fowler the son of the Charlotte Observer sports columnist ( or some other Scott Fowler?

  5. The wait will be worth it if there’s livestock involved…

  6. Milford has lost a game, but darned if we got to see any of it. All we’ve seen depicted in strip so far are wins over St. Fabians, Oakwood, and Jefferson.
