Abrupt transition to girl’s hoops and their own version of Mudlark Roll Call. Long road trip for one of these teams as the Lady Mudlarks’ opponent is from central Pennsylvania.

Good ol’ Wendy Wiley has returned but what’s up with this girl with the Scrabble board for a name? I’m used to seeing that first name spelled with “i” before “e” (as in the fictional name of one of the von Trapp children) but a significant number spell it “e” before “i” (as in this comic artist). The surname first made me think of the last of the Yahi but then I realized it was also the surname of Lucy Liu’s character in Kill Bill. Googling the name as a whole leads to nothing.

I suspect we’ll learn more about this girl with the German-Japanese name soon enough. Supposedly she has the hot hand but from the angle of her shooting hand it looks more like she’s passing than shooting.



  1. Liesl is a great name. Not so sure about “Leisl.” A German pronouncing that would sound a lot like he was saying “Lysol.” Glad at the hint we may see some of the girls’ team this season, though- I am not sure I can stand the manager story all winter.

  2. I can just hear the taunting now: “Robby and Lysol, sittin’ in a tree; kay eye ess ess eye en gee…” They’ll be Snow Dance Royalty, just you wait.

  3. g2design, I like your Snow Dance scenario. We can build on this…

  4. Nothing pantheon level so far, but I was struck by the various ‘tails’ on display in today’s panels. As for ‘Leisl’s’ shooting form, it looks to me as though she is levitating the ball.
