A Day In The Life Of Bobby Sweatervest

Noon: Lunch with Theo at the cafeteria. Get feedback from Theo about situation vis a vis Leisl. Remember to grab complementary tennis ball from serving line.

1:00 pm: Period 5, Chemistry class with Leisl. Have new sweatervest at the ready in case lunch gets on original. Also remember collar stays. Prepare basketball focused small talk, but be prepared to break away from mono-focus if opportunity arises.

2:00 Appointment by locker with Max Bacon. Confirm scarcity of Adderall, prepare for backlash from strung out Alpha male.



  1. Combine his thorough deviousness (and mono focus) with his willingness to experiment with his players’ health and sanity, I’d say Bobby is definitely going to be a great college coach someday. All he needs is to trademark the sweater vest and start selling ad space on it.

  2. Don’t think Nike has already taken notice, John S. Walters.

  3. Collar stays! I think I still have some gathering dust somewhere in a dresser drawer. I betcha Bobby keeps his next to his cufflinks. That’s where my dad kept his.

  4. RoBob is playing Mack Swell like a violin. Bac-Os has no idea who holds the real power here, despite his stick-up-butt aggressive posture in P3.

    In the meantime, Lysol wields her feminine wiles and plays Bobbinator like a flute (he wishes).

    Do the math: we could cut RoBob out of this story entirely, and the balance of power remains unchanged. mon Dieu! Lysol IS Keyser Söze!

  5. Panel 1: Looks like Howry isn’t the only student into the sweater vest. Or is that just a sweater?

  6. I have to say this plot has taken an unexpected twist and that Whigrub may finally be showing us the real direction. Usually in GT, a kid with a medical condition ends up a kind of hero, either overcoming it or showing it is no basis for stigma. But now we have Bobby, whom we think has ADHD, revealed as a devious little shit. For a few days I was joking about the odds of Lysol going down on him in the back of the bus. Now think it’s far more likely that as she catches on to what he’s really up to, she will put her hands on his shoulders, smile sweetly, and knee him in the balls.

  7. Bobby could develop a trademark sweater vest like Lou Carnesecca, widely known his signature sweaters.

  8. Vaganova, I like your line of thought, but I’d make one change. i wouldn’t call Bobby devious as much as manipulative. He’s still a rotten little shit, though.
    Mack Swell’s still a creep, too, for the record.
