Largely Disappearing

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Marjie Ducey — nedryerson @ 4:34 am


Aaron Aagard, non starter, still can’t sustain his effort coming off the bench. I wonder why that is? The dumpy apartment, the sort of actuary mom, Molly the girlfriend. These are the things we know. Why won’t they add up?? So confounding. It’s Monday, and we’re still confounded.

Is that Marjie at the press table, calling the game to herself as she prepares her story for The Star?



  1. Well, there’s certainly nothing in terms of plot development here. The most interesting thing is the possible transgender person behind Marjie in panel 3: spangly bangle bracelets and what appears to be a, {cough}, package.

  2. I like the uniform switch at halftime.
    Like to see more of Five Fouls Funchess.

  3. I like how we are told Jefferson has built a 12 point lead and then see a Jefferson player bricking a layup off the bottom of the rim.

  4. Five fouls on Funchess? For fighting, or freakin forgetting he had four beFore? And why is Marjie (or whoever that is) sitting sideways at the table? Her rear end looks nice, but that must be hard on her back to twist her neck and spine for 2 hours. So Funchess fouled out even though AArvark is in the game, presumably just taking up space at this point? What now? Do the Bobsy twins save the day and motivate AArdvark to fully confess his story? Why would not having Funchess in the game motivate AA when it didnt before? I’m ready to Flip!

  5. If Marjie keeps writing with the kind of posture she’s taking up at the press table she’s headed for back problems. The Star’s ergonomics coach needs to have a sit-down with her (pun intended).

  6. Is Marjie wearing a black armband or is that a fairly bold black cuff on a short sleeve (in February) shirt?

    If Milford is so good, then why is the inconsistent play of one player having such a dramatic impact?

  7. Pursuing John S.’s train of thought, based on the crotch shot of (possibly) The Great Pelwicki, I’m tempted to declare that he raided Heather’s jewelry box so that he could be more macho a la Mr. T. I’d hate to see what the earrings look like.
    “Hey, Fool, quit breakin’ down on the court!!!! And who the H— is Molly?”
    And billytheskink, that was funny and is the epitome of the “less is more”(from “Angels in the Outfield”) scenery I’ve been used to witnessing for 40+ years. It’s amusing watching a guy pitch looking like his arm is about to disintegrate while the caption avers that he just pitched a no-hitter. A bit of an exaggeration, admittedly, but not too far off.
    And I love our writers’ observation of Marjie’s posture in P3. Only a grasshopper in the savage savannahs of Africa as seen on “Wild Kingdom, before the hapless grasshopper gets devoured by a ferocious killer ant(s), deftly narrated by Marlon Perkins, could endure the torso convoluted in such manner.

  8. If that’s Marjie– and I’m not sure, since the eyeglass frames look wrong– she’s definitely courting a case of scoliosis. Gil, by contrast, can cross off “sub him in” as a solution to Aa’s lethargy. I have a feeling that the Boy Detectives’ approach– try to figure out what’s wrong rather than try to shock him out of it– may be more successful.

  9. Speaking of boy detectives, I was sure that the fellow in the headset sitting behind Margie was one of the Hardy Boys. Frank? Joe?
