Okay, so Kasey Flanders may be getting Wally Pipped by Amy. Thinking back to the basketball arc, a question for the long-time TWIMers: In the Valley Conference, does ejection from a game result in an automatic suspension? Or is this a Thorp thing? If the latter it might explain Milford’s inability to win in the clutch. Gil, Mimi, don’t bench your players for ejections, just make ’em run Death Valleys ’til they puke! Call it conditioning under the guise of a teachable moment.
Meanwhile, P3 offers some foreshadowing. What could that mysterious “presentation” be? Whatever it is Lucky’s not quite ready for it.

Again with the Memento-like dialogue. P2 clues us into the likelihood that the “presentation” is actually a debate. Having no clue about the rules of team debate I don’t know if a team is allowed to debate shorthanded, or if a team member can just not show up without notifying the coach who can then locate a second… but let’s not get bogged down in minutiae, shall we?
So is this debate about the Battle of Stalin_d, or is Stalin’s name just plastered up there on the wall to inspire future generations of Milford leaders? Without the unseen Rakesh to carry them, Lucky and his pudgy teammate struggle. Could Amy’s rubbing have rubbed Lucky’s luck onto her and off him? Only time will tell…
