Bucket Debut


I think we may be reaching new levels of freak handedness in panel two. I defy anyone to provide me an anatomically plausible explanation of what’s going on with Bobby’s index finger (?? – maybe he’s only got four fingers and he’s holding a potato chip) there.

It’s almost enough to distract me from the halo surrounding the incredulous… Ken? That’s probably Ken, right? Why is he so surprised? Why was he so engrossed with his phone in panel one?

Sorry, folks, but it’s all too confusing to me. I have to confess I don’t know what the hell is going on here.


  1. Timbuys, I don’t KNOW what’s going on either, but that never stops me. First, I am alarmed at yet another appearance by that irritating noise Bobby Howry. The players may have set last season aside, or not known about his connivance, I suppose. And, uh, Ken? Try not to act so incredulous that Maxwell and Kenzie are an apparent couple. It’s not polite. For one thing, it implies there is something incomprehensible about one or the other of them being attracted to the other.

  2. So the guy in the ball cap is Bobby, eh? At first I thought it was the one guy always sitting at Moe’s bar in the early Simpsons episodes, who never actually said anything, or had any role beyond making the bar look like someone besides Barney was there.

  3. Is Ken Brown checking his pulse in panel 1? I guess he’s supposed to be checking his phone, but the phone is in his fingertips and he’s looking at his wrist.

  4. P3: That look on Ken’s face is: shiite! – why didn’t I call her when I had the chance. I just KNOW that chick was into me. I thought I’d get some props for showing up.

  5. The kid with the ballcap has not been identified as Bobby Howry, but he sure looks like him and he sure does keep showing up around the players. Again, PLEASE don’t let this turn into a Bobby Howry story. We’ve had boy lawyers, boy admen, and a boy coach. As the late Moe Howard would say, “Enough is too much.”

  6. Is that a Mack Truck, John Deere or Dekalb hat Bobby’s wearing? Whatever it is at least he’s not gangster.

  7. After last season I would take gangsta over dorkster. It wasn’t just the “drugs,” it was really more his presumption at imagining he was coaching the team. Same story as the kid who researched the case against the wrong gas station and the “brand” kid who almost got the Irish football player lynched. All three needed a therapist more than they needed Mfnrd sports. If the stories made a meaningful statement of some kind or were at least fun to follow it would be another matter, but all three were cringeworthy.

  8. Need Kenzie to give em both a black eye – seriously!
