Who’s Marty’s Friend?

Welp, no conclusion today. These are the longest seven seconds ever….

Panel one: The T.J. Stowe memorial is going less well than previously.

Panel two: Seriously, who is that guy in the booth with Marty?

Panel three: C’mon, weren’t they on the four yard line? ‘Hale nears the goal line’? I mean, it looks kinda like Jarrod should be in, but if he’s just a-moseying on in to score, I do believe the Popes might run him down.

Oh well, enough for today, we’ll just have to wait for it.



  1. Wow,how long can you drag this out? My great grandmother could have scored by now. How much drama can we take?

  2. Has Coach Shaw had a line of dialog yet this season? Isn’t that part of his contract as long as he mixes the sangria for August’s two-a-days?

  3. Hope a Peanut Tilman protege pokes ball loose. Can’t handle Jarrod as hero. Maybe True will recover the ball on Saturday .

  4. I see True with a debilitating, perhaps crippling and career ending injury.

  5. Stowe looks to have perished; thank goodness Truemeo appears considerably less dead. P3 can be even more exciting if you play this audio track whilst you take in all the drama.

  6. It’s time dilation, I tell you. Two or three games in six panels, and now- how many is it?– on a four yard play? I haven’t minded until today when we learned Jarrod is” nearing the goal line” (but isn’t there yet, and by implication may still not get there.) The distracting thing that came to mind was the memory of Eddie Murphy telling about Aunt Bunny falling down the stairs (bubbadubbabambumpbumpabudda SHE’S HALFWAY DOWN! bumpaboompabambam etc.)

  7. Oh no, vaganova, it’s much worse than that. Zeno’s Dichotomy Paradox damns us all to an eternal journey towards, but never quite reaching, the goal line.

    Comment by G-Man — December 10, 2014 @ 11:31 am

  8. vaganova, thanks for making me laugh when I remembered Aunt Bunny. The Pius XI guys might not like it if Jarrod calls out like Aunt Bunny did.

    G-Man, thanks for making me cry when I remembered having to write about Zeno’s paradoxes for an undergraduate History of Science course. I wasn’t gonna make that Stowe perishing joke because, well, you know, but it does look like he and True have suffered career-ending injuries. Hope you’re happy now, Jarrod!

    I hope Jarrod doesn’t fall into the tesseract tomorrow so I’ll have something to write about.

  9. In panel 2, is that Art Standish sitting along side Marty??? Doing Color work?? Can’t be Pius announcer as they both have open mikes…

  10. G-Man, teenchy, mention of Zeno’s Paradox raises a sense of despair here. He proved, according to the logic of the time and the mathematical understandings of the time, that motion and change were impossible. Thus we may have to wait as long as our ancestors did– until Newton and Leibniz– to see if Jarrod actually reaches– let alone crosses– the goal line. But by the time of Plato there was a kind of gentlemen’s agreement to tiptoe around that issue and pretend it did not exist, so Marty could make the call as soon as tomorrow. Or not. This is taking me back to calc and that infinite series of vectors forming a curve…

    Tesseract? Klein Bottle? Schrodinger’s Cat? What’s next?

    Comment by vaganova — December 10, 2014 @ 3:08 pm

  11. vaganova – let the interwebs show: you went there first. Forget Zeno, Schrodinger is a much better fit here. To wit, if Marty does not “make the call”, does J-Rod’s journey actually resolve to 6 points, or not? Frankly, there’s no way I’ll deem Marty Moon a reliable observer, so we may never know!

    I will say this makes the superposition of the legs in yesterday’s P3 a bit more reasonable.

    Comment by G-Man — December 10, 2014 @ 4:21 pm

  12. G-Man, I have to agree about the superposition. Marty’s observation of the event will alter it in any case. We may need to agree that no one bring up Planck or Heisenberg. And G-Man, I do thank you for the shout-out. It helps to dispel the stereotype of ballet dancers– that we are all terminally ignorant and can only count to eight in any case.

  13. Wow, this is getting deep… I’m going to have to go pull up my archive of Schrodinger’s cat jokes to keep up.

    I dunno, all of these phsyics/philosophy jokes are not Fermi, but if you all want carry on with them, that’s Feynman.

  14. timbuys has just run the table…

  15. NO EFFING WAY!!!
