Ladies Love The Handoff

Filed under: actual action, Coach Kaz, football, Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 6:57 am


“It’s my ankle coach – but it’ll be okay if you need me.”
“Huh? Okay? Wha? Let’s just get moving before that truck flattens us like pancakes!”
“Truck? I thought the Goshen players had summoned their craft to take them back to Tralfamadore.”
“Tralfamadore? I thought the Goshen home world was Melmac? We don’t have time for this nonsense. Let’s get over to the bench so we can move this plot, in which Goshen and their lousy football team is merely a footnote, forward. Over to you Gil.”
“Plot? Over to you, Gil?? Coach, are we real?”
“There’s no time for this now. Limp this way.”

“Jarrod – you’re in for True!”
“For True? For real? seewhatIdidthere?”
“Shut yer yap, Prom Prince and do what you’ve been dreaming of since the second grade.”
“Okay coach, but who else is going to be in my internationally acclaimed boy band, that guy back there in the towel? He doesn’t have any moves!”
“Focus Jarrod. Remember that whole quarterbacking thing you’ve been griping about all season?”
“Oh yeah! Am I going in? For True?”
“Geez! Hey Coach Shaw, do we have any smelling salts?”

And now, football! Look at that handoff!

Speaking of handoffs, if anybody watched the Florida/Georgia game on Saturday, boy did you see a lot of handoffs. It was stunning how Georgia was unable to stop Florida’s running game, even if it was pretty much the same plays being run over and over again with only six passing plays mixed in throughout the whole game. I hope Emmitt Smith was watching that game somewhere. I’m sure Fred Taylor was.

This has been a non-solicited, Gator football update by a (mostly) indifferent Gator football fan. Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Twue: “Coach, I’m taking myself out of the game to help the popularity of a lesser player in what I hope will be a team building moment.”

    A real coach: “I run this team, moron, so get your ass back in that game and win! If you so much as stumble I will have you running laps until you wish your ankle was falling off! Don’t you ever forget who is in charge!”

    Milford coach: “Gee, Twue, good idea. I’ll just do what you say – less work for me that way.”

    Is that False up in the stands with Mr. Baskt? They have both disappeared.

  2. Unrealistic as this fake injury/way too nice True business is, at least the strip has been committed to it so far. Will they stay committed through the inevitable moment when Jarrod finds out he’s being patronized?

  3. Know what I mean? Know what I mean? Nudge, nudge. Wink wink. Say no more!

  4. Coach Kaz: Complicit in his players’ deception. He’d fit right in in Tallahassee.

    Jarrod Hale: Thrust into the role of game manager. Can he screw it up?

    Saturday’s blog post title: Eerily prophetic. I emphatically did not enjoy Saturday’s WLOCP, and attempted to wash away its memory in a sea of brown liquor. No such luck.

  5. I’ll fess up that I wasn’t paying enough attention to these developments to actually recognize the deception. I swear I had nary a drop of the brown liquor.

  6. It looks like a bowling alley is in the background in panel 1. True threw a gutter ball.
