Odd Combinations

Odd combinations, indeed!

Let’s point out a few:

Panels one and two: Is that Mia? I think it might still be Mia… Anyway, I’m sure that’s Amy, Amy Lange and, boy, what a pair of friends Boo has in them.

Panel three: Aw, teenage romance and gratuitous injuries. Sure, it doesn’t make any sense why she would bean somebody to demonstrate her affection for True, but it’s no soda pop box bikini so I guess we’ll have to let that one slide here in Milford.



  1. I like this relationship already. No greater love hath one pitcher for another than that she will buzz the third batter in the third inning. I think we have to grant her some slack and not expect her to do so if actually hitting the batter would risk a run.

  2. The marvels of the English language: in hitting the batter, Boo would miss the pitch, which is meant to force the batter to take a dive, not be an HBP.

  3. How touching! Maybe if you actually bean her he will have an orgasm!

  4. Heh, I recall back in the 1970’s when Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis announced he was “beaning everybody” and proceeded to hit the first three Reds batters he faced. Dock also pitched a no hitter while high on LSD. If Ellis wasn’t dead, I’d suspect she’s taking pitching tips from him?

  5. “Apparently, you’re the only one who doesn’t think Boo and anybody is an odd combination”.

    See if you really had members of your Greek chorus talking (actually singing) like that you could have one of those Woody Allen Mighty Aphrodite moments where the chorus pauses and looks at each other like, “Huh? Wait, so someone doesn’t think that she and anybody means they do think that she and nobody, or wait, if nobody doesn’t think that, wait….call my agent and get me off this stupid chorus!”

  6. I like Greek choruses. They are better than having the main players telling one another things they both already know (for an example of the latter, see Mel Gibson and Chris Cooper interacting in “The Patriot.”)

    Dizzy Dean, Dock Ellis, Mark Fidrych, Bill Lee; thank god for the eccentricities of pitchers. I especially liked Lee, who once remarked that since the right half of the brain controls the left half of the body and vice versa, left handers are the only people in their right minds.
