The Pros Of Potentially Taking A Pass

I’ll have to take a pass – get it? – on panels one and two as there is nothing I could say about them that would be funnier than them on their own terms. Mohawk teddy bear? Sure, that’s probably a thing. Wide body jet with overhead bin doors that open like that? I may be a triple-super-duper-platinum-coated-diamond-primus-inter-pares-elite frequent flier, but I haven’t come across that cabin configuration yet.

Panel three? The font on that guy’s sign would have me, and I would hope any other person with some sense of self preservation, walking right on by towards an officer of the law. Creepy!



  1. Is Marty Moon going on special assignment to cover True at Pro Potential Passing Camp? Looks like he put on a few pounds this spring.

  2. Is Pro Potential Passing Camp guy driving an unmarked, windowless van?
    Is their such a thing as catfishing in the elite quarterback camps? I think there is now.

    Wow. Very weird.

  3. Awwww. All it took was a little he-man lovin’ to turn Boo into a simpering teenager. Bleh.

  4. In the business travels, I have had the pleasure of being met by a driver. As I recall:

    -Your last name glowing in all caps on an iPad? No worries whatsoever; it’s likely a black Crown Vic. Dude will offer to carry your bag.
    -Your name marked on a small whiteboard? Is OK – no pretense offered nor desired. The ride will be quick with zero small talk.
    -Your name misspelled, scrawled on a torn piece of grease-stained cardboard? You walk right past and head to the cab stand.

    Keep walking True-man!

  5. I would not have expected that sort of airplane to serve Milford International.
    So the story line last summer centered on True … and last fall … and the spring … and this summer. If it weren’t for Bobby and Max (not what I’d call a breath of fresh air), we’d have had True constantly for over a year now, and the prospect of much, much more before he fades out in another year or so. I mean, he seems to be a nice kid, but I haven’t seen this much of any of my own relatives in the past 12 months.

  6. Curtis’ brother Barry has had a mohawk bear for decades

  7. OK, so Barry’s bear is a high top fade.

  8. Panel II Dude is putting his bag in overhead in a “curling” motion… for me it takes some kind of overhead “press”… the motion should mimic a “snatch”…. a combination of a power clean followed by an overhead press..

  9. I’m not sure that widebodies even land in Central City. Willing to bet the Mfnrd airport is a mowed strip where Old Man Schmidlap keeps his Citabria and practices his “Flying Farmer” act for the county fair. Perhaps we have been spared the account of how True got to Hub City from Mfnrd, on the model of the piece in The Onion about the forty minute scene cut from the first hobbit movie showing Bilbo trying to decide what to pack before dashing off with the dwarves.

    But this obscures the question of why this is called a “passing camp” rather than a quarterback camp. QBs have more to think about than passing, in fact I once saw an offsides penalty caused by the QB coming up under a guard instead of the center.

  10. English majors: Is the “potential” in regards to the Pro, as in they may have the tools to become professional; or is it that we might see some actually pass attempts at said Pro camp? Dammit, this seems really important!

  11. g2design, English was one of my majors, and I am thinking this is a jumbled version of “Passing Camp for Players with Pro Potential.” But if it is only potentially a passing camp, we have False to look forward to, raging about his paying “good money” for True’s advancement when the organizers announce “Nah, let’s make it a week of Simon Says and Karaoke.”

  12. P2: Mr. Baskt reappears! He is a frequent flier. I wonder how Charleston was?
