Nuts to You!

Well here it comes!

Lucky was right on one count: he does sound selfish and stupid. Bad enough that he implied Amy’s luck was coming at his expense, but to expand that to the baseball Mudlarks as a whole? Dude’s just digging his hole deeper.  Amy’s ever-growing freak hands will help him with that.

I halfway wanted to hold off posting today so we could post today’s and tomorrow’s strips as one, because I really want to see where Amy’s going with the “I don’t want my luck!” idea. Yeah, yeah, we all know that her improved play is a result of getting more playing time, as if coaching ever does anything in Milford. But aren’t the factors that led to her increased playing time – injury, illness, ejection, academic suspension – just a bit too coincidental? More fun to think Amy’s been behind it all! A broken cleat here, an incorrect cheat sheet there, it all adds up…

If tomorrow’s strip offers some variation on “I don’t want my luck… ’cause I’ve got skills – skills I knew I had all along!” I’m gonna be a bit disappointed.



  1. Plus it was my day to do this, but I can do tomorrow. These 2 have to get off the luck thing and just take on whatever life offers, be it a good day or a not so good one, and roll with the punches. I think Amy gets it better then Conrad at this point, and if she has to temporarily leave him to drive that home (no pun intended) all the better.

  3. “First off, that’s nuts. Second off, you’re a self-absorbed jerkwad and I’m breaking up with you. Third off…” [kick to the goolies]

  4. So much for my hope that Lucky’s funk was due to guilt over blowing his team’s achievement. That kind of thing can be dealt with. His present feelings require that he grow up instead, and Amy has a major flying start in that area. No idea where this is going– the map ends here too.
