Contrary to my expressed hopes in the comments yesterday, it looks like we’re sticking with the boys team for the week. Luckey seems pretty confident, but then again, the authors seem to have gone out of their way to lower the stakes even more here. That notwithstanding, I would find it plenty amusing if, in keeping with the formulation grimness=reality, they keep it real by having Conrad ground into a double play when all he needed was to pull a flyball to right field to tie the game.

Tune in tomorrow when there is a 50-50 chance of the plot creeping ever so slowly forward and we draw ever closer to learning some inscrutable lessons.

Bonus point: the parallel rows of hair in Kaz’s sideburn are weirding me out…..



  1. Burnrows! It’s the hot new trend.

    Well, it’s more exciting than watching an endless baseball game with SECOND PLACE on the line. Back in the day, Gil’s teams actually contended for championships. But that was long ago, when Gil was sober and had kids.

  2. Ric Devore definitely should be graduating, er ah, should have graduated.
    I remember when he was just a slender sophomore.

  3. Maybe Ric is a 5th year senior, something generally restricted to college football. My guess is that Lucky will come through in some fashion, thus clinching the first loser title. Personally I would prefer the GIDP result. Lucky would then go into seclusion never to be heard from again.

  4. I’m ready to move on from these second-place shenanigans to the Summer-o’-Fun.

  5. More off-model shenanigans: Doesn’t Conrad look ten years older today?

  6. teenchy –

    That’s his war face. He can’t hold it for more than a few seconds before he starts giggling.

  7. @John S. Walters: ‘Burnrows’ made me laugh! I wish I could go back in time to steal that one…

  8. I say a gapper that clears the bases and wins the game, or would’ve won the game had Luckey not been tagged out between 1st and 2nd watching the winning run score. Since he was tagged out before the run scored the run doesnt count. And on we go into extras!
