No Matter, Never Mind

Is Tip on the team or not? Today’s strip presents us with numerous philosophical conundrums that I would love to delve into. However, as I have even less time than usual to go on about this crap, I’ll have to leave it as an exercise for the commentators.

So as not to completely abjure my role though, here are a few starters:

Panel 1: Sometimes you’re the windshield : sometimes you’re the bug :: After games, we hit the Bucket : _______________________, the bucket hits us

Panel 2: How many milkshake slurping highschoolers can fit in a booth at the Bucket?

Panel 3: I got nothing… WTF is wrong with these kids? I recall being plenty obnoxious when I was a teenager and certainly remember most of my then peers being pretty terrible too as, hey, that’s just the way it is at that age. But, wow, Tip and Jarrod are really taking it to extremes today.

I think John Pascoe’s philosophy is about right: If you can’t say anything non-terrible, don’t say anything at all.


  1. The Bucket?? Hey, True, what about your dad’s eight-hour postgame film session? Gotta break down that interception, amirite?

    Also, these obnoxious hormone bags are ripe for a nice sportsmanship-lesson-imparting midseason losing streak.

  2. Where’s Herk The Mauler when you need him?

  3. They gave Nunn brown hair today, so I didn’t recognize him. This whole 50s kid vs. Spiccoli thing is really messing with the art.

  4. No post game fight for rubbing it in? Jimmy Carter must be coaching Oakwood. What a wimp!

  6. Wondering if Gil or Kaz knows what Harold Hale is up to. On most properly run teams, talk such as we see in panel 2– blasting a teammate in front of teammates in a public place– will get you benched so fast your ears will ring.

  7. What’s with our shutout.? As I recall from my playing days the defense is responsible for shutouts. How does the QB take credit for it?Shut your pie hole Jaroo. Soon you will likely cause a loss due to your own inadequate performance.

  8. Agree with Vaganova on coaches being clue less on turd boys behavior. Is he captain or have captains been named? I vote him team jackass.

  9. vaganova @6: It might not get you benched but it certainly will get you a beatdown in the showers with bars of soap-on-a-rope.

  10. […] field goal. There hasn’t been a Mudlark blowout of the Owls in some time, at least not since 2014. (This is where I place a call to the Milford SID to confirm; billy, you […]
