Gil Thorp


Hope everyone had a a merry Christmas because its back to a new season of hoops, and the glow of the football title hasnt quite ended. So we’re developing a new character that doesnt even play, and I’m just not getting a warm and fuzzy feeling about this nerdy dude.  A battery-operated microphone?? I remember years ago a product called Mr. Microphone that needed batteries, but dont they run on the same feed that powers the scoreboard these days? As in – electricity? Oh yeah, this is Milford. Different season, same old equipment. Bobby better have a good broom to knock the snow out of that net when someone scores.




  1. I’m Timmy O’Toole and I’m stuck down the well!

  2. I had a great Christmas celebration but now I’m back home and ready to snark on all things Gil Thorp.

    Panel three is, I think, one of the most intriguing questions posed in this strip in the time that I’ve been reading it. I’ve enjoyed the work of Alan Alda in no small number of productions – boy there was that two period of time where I was essentially a shut-in and watched reruns of M*A*S*H more or less non-stop – but I’ve never once even contemplated whether it was Gil or Kaz who most closely resembled Alan Alda. That said, I think I preferred Donald Sutherland’s more acidic take on the character of Hawkeye. Of course, as for RoBob Howry here, I can definitely see Gary Burghoff playing the part…

  3. You’ve got to hand it to Gil – he found another non-paid patsy to do all his work for him!

    About time for he an Kaz to go lift some weights and “admire” the football trophy!

  4. Our local high school soccer field is across the street from a Catholic church, and a few years ago both went to wireless mics. Until they got the frequencies sorted out, the reading of the gospel at Saturday evening service could get complex: “Thus Jesus said unto his disciples– #23, obstruction– indirect kick…”

  5. As far as sitcom references are concerned, the student manager reminds me more of Sheldon Cooper than Radar O’Reilly.

  6. I was thinking Steve Urkel myself.

    Alternate title for today’s strip: Suicide Drills Are Painless

    Does the M*A*S*H analogy make Marty Moon Frank Burns or Charles Emerson Winchester III?

  7. Marty Moon is definetly Frank Burns. But who is Hot Lips?

  8. Jive – it depends on if Loretta Swit does it (did it) for you or not.

  9. Cant help any with the MASH references – didnt watch the show much, my college roomate did, that was my main exposure. 10PM every weeknight. Saw Allen Alda in a restaurant in LA in ’82.

  10. Who’s Hot Lips? Marjie, obviously!

  11. Frank Burns eats worms.

  12. Marty Moon is definitely Frank Burns. Winchester had some redeeming qualities.
