You’d Think One Of These Hangers On Would Have Given Him A Nicer Cell Phone

Not even going to guess what model of phone Rodney’s supposed to be talking into there in Panel One, but I do like the dumbbell illustration with copious annotations over his right shoulder.

Panel Two is easy to get lost in if you’ve been up for long enough and/or are under the influence of over the counter cold medications. Between the bent car with the wavy C-pillar that True isn’t quite leaning up against and the shadowy figures in the background doing…. doing…. some sort of football thing but it sure doesn’t look like a football, I can’t be sure what we’re supposed to get from that illustration.

Panel Three fails to clear things up by inexplicably taking us to Fort Worth for the very important task of illustrating for the superannuated amongst us how the kids are destroying the language these days. Were I feeling more generous, I’d award a bonus point for the carefully drawn emoji.



  1. So the entire summer plot consists of “star QB prospects suddenly realize that college athletics are a moral sewer.” Which is stupid because they’ve been exposed to this business since probably age 14. And even stupider because their families are happily splashing about in the sewer. Unless the payoff is “True and Rodney quit football, enroll at Oberlin, bond over their newfound love of poetry, and shack up together,” this season’s gonna be a real disappointment.

  3. Some dude named Fridge went there. Not sure he can read.

  4. Maybe this plot is about a “good virus” spreading, one which tells teenage football prospects that they are seen as commodities rather than teenagers? Did they catch it from True, or is he just another one affected? Suddenly flashing back to False’s introductory remarks a year ago, something about “If you know anything about high school football,” as if this entity were on a par with the Renaissance or the discovery of penicillin…

    By the way, where is Boo?

  5. What are these guys whining about? If you don’t want attention go out for the chess team. Most high school athletes crave the attention. These wussies cry about it.

  6. Bobby Joe, it might have something to do with seventeen year olds discovering they are being dishonestly manipulated by people with ulterior motives.

  7. Just a heads-up that it will be a late post from me tomorrow. If anyone else wants to take a crack at it, please feel free.

    Oh, hey. I’m still at my computer and the current strip is up. Guess I’ll post about it.

  9. […] about Marty rather than to light up social media (which, again, only Golden Child True Standish and his QB posse had any inkling of how to use). If this resembled reality in any way, shape or form, by the end of […]
