Showing The Coaches

Panel One: the crowd seems pretty worked up for a blowout even if it looks as though they’re all looking in different directions. Hey, it’s Cameron from Ferris Bueller! Good to see that guy still getting work.

Panel Two: Hmmm… Yes the game seems to have deteriorated to the point that Jarrod is now pulling Harlem Globetrotters tricks, like the one where you roll the ball across your shoulders. (Sorry, don’t have the time to source a video.) I do like how the narration box only grudgingly admits that Jarrod ‘oversees’ the game. I mean, hey maybe we could have used panel one to show some of that, but we had to get that crowdshot in there for what I’m sure are very important reasons.

Panel Three: I guess that’s Omari Troy? And, he doesn’t look happy? And, Jarrod is totally being a self-centered jerk? Tune in tomorrow for partial resolution of what the hell is going on here!



  1. P1: No two people are looking in the same direction; disembodied clapping hands over Cameron’s head (no way can they be attached to “M” shirt kid). Also, “Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself?”

    P2: Jarrod’s not holding a football but a wad of felt, electric football QB style.

    When Jarrod went in at QB, the score was 21-0, and the final was 45-10? Who the heck kicks field goals leading by that much, or trailing by that much? Sure Milford could’ve scored four TDs and missed all the extra points I’m not buying it. Maybe Gil and the Goshen coach thought their kickers needed practice.

  2. Well, there went the “Jarrod gets put back in as QB and screws the pooch” idea…
    Nice to see his Noted Great Modesty is still intact.

  3. Timbuys: I think you meant to say “Tune in over the next four installments to possibly get an idea of the general storyline of what is going on here.” There are so many plots/subplots/forgotten characters in addition to upcoming new plots/subplots/characters that I foresee confusion without resolution until – bam! – football ends and basketball begins over a two-day period.

  4. OK, again from Paris and with the ironic bitterness contagious here, I see two things. One is that Amari is being remarkably sarcastic in the way he addressed Jarrod, and his facial expression is hardly that of a player happy for his teammate’s success. The other is that Jarrod is STILL not getting it– he really thinks the point was to “show the coaches” rather than help the team win. True is still a nice guy and Jarrod is still an a-hole.

  5. Does Twue think that a-hole Jadoo is going to appreciate his tanking to give him playing time at QB? Doubt he will figure it out. Don’t understand his motivation to do it in the first place. Jaroo is clearly still a douche.

  6. Let us all be thankful that Jarrod Hale, Jamarr Gaddis, and GT Grayling were born at different times.

  7. If you view this storyline (?) using the “Inception” filter, I think we’re in Jarrod’s dream, which is happening in True’s dream. I think. I was hoping for a celebratory end-zone ball spin, so I could just verify where the hell we’re at in this fever-dream.

  8. Well, I think Jarrod’s accomplishment is very impressive, considering that they gave him a small duffel bag to play with instead of a football.

  9. I like the “Inception” angle, G-Man! It explains why the GT story jumps all over the place – we keep changing the dreamer as we go down another dream level.

    Remember though – in “Inception” you can go down so many dream levels that you get lost in limbo and oblivion. Of course, this explains why Gil doesn’t age, why storylines never really begin and end ….. and maybe why I’ve been reading this comic for over 40 years!
