Extra practice? It’s a good thing that 7-on-7 football is completely beyond the purview of the NCAA or the coaches would be in for all kinds of trouble with these extra practices. Of course, it’s been a while since we’ve seen Sponsor-Hustler Kaz or the middle school guys (not gonna bother looking up their names) so it’s not like the coaches are really in control of anything here.

No, that would be Jarrod. Sure, his Gil-style flattop may be prematurely graying, but he sure is organizing the heck out of this team. And, while his mediocre results are also reminiscent of Gil, I think we have to give him credit for throwing a pizza party after the inevitable beatdown, even if his choice of marshmallow and blackeyed pea pizza is an unconventional topping combination.

As for panel 3? ZZZZzzzzzzz…. Interesting font choice for the JHS sign though.



  1. Guess that the VT coach didn’t come thru with the $100K payoff to secure all world QB Twue. Now it’s the Jefferson coach chance to give up all his self respect to land him. Nice start by acknowledging he knows who he is. More than the others have done.

  2. Pepperoni and olive pizza, and aluminum pints of Strohs…
    If there’s a better way to unwind after playing 3 and a half hours of flag football, I’m not aware of it.

  3. OK. True and False are making the rounds of the Valley Conference looking for a football program that will do things for them we can’t discuss in a family newspaper. Gil has given them the only reasonable answer, essentially “If you want to register at Mfnrd it’s a free country, but if you want to play a sport you’ll have to try out like everybody else.”

    Possible that Whigrub has a “corruption plot” in mind, and that some perfidious coach will do something shifty to land True? No idea what– Art gets the pizza franchise at the games? True gets two Carnegie units for playing? We see Mfnrd and the principled stiff Nathan Hale battle it out with the crooked semi-pros? (And win, guaranteeing the coveted runner-up finish in league play.)

    Not that this would not be welcome, unless you think HS football does not already get disproportionate attention. I mean neither the track team nor the drama club has a TV show about them while the advisors cultivate a game that wrecks bodies (and now brains, we find) like no other…

  4. How can True possibly resist the opportunity to become a Jeff? After all… (cue the band)

    When you’re a Jeff,
    You’re a Jeff all the way
    From your first cigarette
    To your last dyin’ day.

    When you’re a Jeff,
    If the spit hits the fan,
    You got brothers around,
    You’re a family man!

    You’re never alone,
    You’re never disconnected!
    You’re home with your own:
    When company’s expected,
    You’re well protected!

    Then you are set
    With a capital J,
    Which you’ll never forget
    Till they cart you away.
    When you’re a Jeff,
    You stay a Jeff!

  5. Wonderful, John! (But I have to caution you that Shark Week is coming up. Be careful out there!)

  6. Maybe talking pizza can hang around to liven things up.

  7. P1 dude is borderline Pantheon of Hair; his ur-Kaz ‘do just lacks burnrows.

  8. Good catch Ned. I didn’t notice that dialogue balloon was pointed at the pizza.

  9. So, I thought about doing a ‘talking pizza’ gag and indirectly referred to that in the title, but I concluded that it was the shrubbery that was just offering us some exposition after helping itself to some pie.
