He Blows Like He Doesn’t Care

That is stone cold, narration box. Our man quadruple A is just one member of the team who had an off night. Pretty sure the rest of the team has to take responsibility for their contributions to the outcome.

What oh what can possibly be written on AaAa’s t-shirt? I’m sure our commenters can come up with a few ideas.

Hey, what the heck happened in panel three? I thought Ken and Mike were our dynamic drug busting duo. I would really like to see the reference photo for the guy on the right’s hand. That meathook makes Chuck Bednarik look like a hand model.

  1. What’s with the kid in panel 3. Is he sweating bullets or have a terminal case of warts on his face? His buddy must have had his fingers broken by bookies to help assure a loss.

    Is Aaaaaaaron going home to confront Maaaa Ardvark for not showing up for the game because she is in a drunken stupor?

  2. “Hmmm, we never speak to Aaron or offer him any form of emotional support or encouragement. Also, Coach asked him about drug use last week because we tipped him off. I wonder why he doesn’t hang out with us?”

  3. 1. Hey — I didn’t see either of those two big clutch ballers demand the rock in crunch time and try to carry their team to victory… So both of them need to STFU and FOAD…

    2. Are these people goddamned teammates or not? Do they ever plan to you know, TALK TO AARON DIRECTLY? Or will they continue to gossip like a couple of girls?

    3. Last I checked, there was no ironclad etiquette on “how long you should linger around the locker room after a tough loss”, so I don’t see what’s the problem here?

    4. I LOVE how our amateur sleuths are pointing out Aaron’s supposedly suspicious behavior while being completely oblivious to the fact that Aaron’s reaction is completely normal because HE KNOWS SOME TEAMMATE OR TEAMMATES WENT BEHIND HIS BACK AND NARC’D HIM OUT TO THE COACH AND NOW HE CAN’T TRUST ANYONE…

    5. Isn’t Gil supposed to intervene at some point and get some control over a team that is coming apart? I mean, I know he doesn’t, but I’m required by law to at least ask once a week. Just think — If Gil was even a 10% professional, concerned and active coach, if he could meet the standard of even the worst real-life high school coaches out there, this strip would die because there wouldn’t be any plot…

    6. I don’t care, this is officially the worst GT storyline I’ve ever read…

  4. T-Shirt: Maybe AaAa is a big fan of the ancient Sumerian city of… “Ur”? They had, like, ziggurats and stuff. Big fan, big fan.

    That, or “The Turds”?

  5. Cypress Hill: “Throw your set in the air wave it around like you just don’t care.”
    Outkast: “Now throw your hands in the air and wave ’em like you just don’t care.”
    Miley Cyrus: “Red cups and sweaty bodies everywhere hands in the air like we don’t care.”

    I could go on.

  6. g2, I vote for “Ur.” I’m pretty sure I remember Mesopotamia had a Valley League too, and that Ur and Uruk were the two powerhouses. Weren’t Gilgamesh and Enkidu the rival captains? I’m remembering this from interpolated passages– there are a lot of missing words and phrases because some of the tablets got broken, probably in a celebration after a league championship.

  7. So now everybody’s getting into the act and trying to unlock the mysteries of our hero. Next thing you know, they’ll be staking out in an unmarked Gran Torino with Friday and Gannon and Callahan across the street from the Aardvark residence. Brainstorm away, gentlemen.
    I totally agree with you, Hitorque. As Coach Hudson, our cross country coach used to say, “Once it’s over, it’s over.” Yeah, some dippy of a player wrote to Miss Manners and asked whether he has to linger in the locker room after a semi-heart-breaking loss and discuss the horoscope with his teammates. “…Miss Manners says that as long as you put your jock strap in your gym bag because some smell like a dry-rotted tire submerged in a kitty litter box and don’t bleat about the points you scored since parts are interchangeable, it’s perfectly acceptable to excuse yourself from the dinner table or locker room when the contest is completed.”
    And I think one of our detectives in P3 is on the verge of imploding and suddenly becoming The Incredible Hulk. Gee, news travels fast. Like I said, too many detectives and not enough Indians.

  8. Today’s headline from the Milford Enquirer

    “O. J. To Ken And Mike: ‘Don’t Even Think Of Coming Into My House Without A Warrant!!!!!'”

  9. We’ve heard plenty about Aaaaron’s inconsistent play, but this is the first we’ve seen him leave the locker room in a perceived huff. Hey, it’s another clew!
