Who Wears An Above The Knees Skirt In January?

Nothing like one of Gil’s patented zingers to squelch a kid’s enthusiasm! Please be sure to read Gil’s lines in a high pitched, sarcastic tone…

So, now that the whole Molly is a drug and also the name of some girl from Tilden thing has been resolved, what next? It would seem that we are going to get more of our dynamic duo of Ken and Mike which…. I guess I’m OK with that for now.



  1. So Encyclopedia Brown and Inspector Granger are determined to investigate. Will one of them start wearing a deerstalker cap and proclaim his search for “clews”? If this is the kind of brain power and human insight Gil has to deal with on a daily basis, well, no wonder he’s such a dick.

  2. Well, Gil is properly separating things– it’s the school’s role to investigate possible drug use, not that of the students, and it’s also the school’s role to protect students from harm that could arise from inserting themselves into what may turn into a criminal investigation. But like timbuys, I’m fine with Ken and Mike continuing to try to get to the bottom of things. And I suspect they will. I’m wondering if the fact Aa knows Gil was tipped will lead to conflict on the team and some kind of self-incrimination.

  3. Oh! You think maybe Gil’s *in* on the shenanigans? Maybe the charade with My-Girl-Molly was just for optics, a puppet show for the youngsters?

    Gil orchestrated the misdirection and closed the deal, the youths wander off, muttering betwixt themselves. The nefarious scheme is clear to proceed with weeks of time remaining; let’s see if Gil can ride AaAa and his little helpers to the playdowns.

    Very Rice/Knight/Beckman-esque of you, Gil.

  4. I suspect Gil was the most confused of anyone present. But given the fact that “Molly O’Herlihy” doesn’t explain away anything, i think there will be further investigation, whether Gil has it in mind already or Ken and Mike’s ongoing interest forces his hand.

  5. Foghorn Leghorn to The Hardy Boys in P1: “You boys, ah say, you boys run along ‘n’ play. Heah’s a Lincoln fo’ yore ef-urts. Straight outta thuh ATM. Iz a man’s job ta see ef hiz him-mo-rrhoids iz kickin’ lak a mule. Them him-mo-rrhoids’ll spring outta his butt and bite ya if ya ain’t careful. Yule be thuh butt of yore buddies. That’s a joke, son. I got a hacksaw and some sandpaper that’ll wipe them critters right offa his anus. Them ‘rrhoids won’t know what hit ’em.”
    P3: “Why don’t just say that Coach Thorp is a horse’s rear end and be done with it? I’m hungry and those brats look pretty good.”

  6. Who wears an above the knees skirt in January? Pretty much all the girls. The boys at our school protested because they couldn’t wear shorts in the winter, but the girls could wear skirts year round. I said , fine, let ’em be cold, and the board changed the dress code so they can freeze with the girls. Cool in more ways than one!

    I know Gil is trying to take on responsibility here, but I feel bad for Ken and Mike, who right now feel like they care about the team more than coach does.

  7. Is it that common for teammates to go full Stasi and rat out each other? Because this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this in GT…

  8. @AirFrobes: That is hilarious and a good illustration of just how out of touch I am with today’s kids.
