Well, for you Marty Moon fans out there, the strip has been giving you the goods lately and how. Of course, the highlight of any Marty Moon appearance is his inevitable comeuppance at Gil’s hands. Unfortunately today, while Gil’s menacing ventriloquist act in panel one starts out strongly, by panel three Gil has lost the thread – c’mon, you’d have trouble holding it together too after your eighth ‘coffee’ before lunch! – and he’s starting to babble. Hey, coach! You could always mention the three star recruit who just joined the team!

Bonus points: That’s not Gil’s normal mug in panel one. Nope, he’s taking things to the next level by using his ‘L is for Loser’ mug that he pulls out for meetings with students, parents, and, of course, Marty.

Seriously, if I had any type of Photoshop skills at all, I’d feel compelled to do the red eyes thingy with Gil in panel one.

  1. A three star prospect is a top 750 player. Not copied liver but not necessarily a can’t miss major college prospect.

  4. Very disturbing laser beam eyes in panel 1. And a healthy dose of Gil Thorp dickishness: “Maybe we’re good, maybe we’re bad, I don’t know and I don’t really care.”

  5. “I coach, the kids play.” Ha-ha, Gil, don’t ever change buddy. “L” is for the way Moon looks at me…

  7. Wondering why we have a tickle of the old Marty Moon here, trying to get Gil to say something he can turn into a “scandal.” That I thought died with Jack Berrill, who pretty clearly had something against sports reporters. In the present regime, it’s been more about Marjie Ducey giving us chances to make salacious observations.

    But Gil’s response is different, too– Berrill would have had him say something more like “I can’t worry about ‘ratings,’ Marty. We just prepare for every game and play to win and leave the ratings to others.” So I am wondering if the rumpus some of us speculated about– Marty getting into the personnel controversy– is about to erupt.
