Hungry for a solution

Filed under: Gil Thorp — robmize2013 @ 8:05 pm

Yeah its funny how 2 months of beating around the bush can result in finally slowly leaking all the info that we couldve had in a day or 2, then moved on to more hoops action. Guess mom Aarvark is still high on her horse (pills). So his uneven play is because of being hungry? Guess that makes a little sense, but some players actually function better on little food before a game, then eat up afterward. Food slows you down if your too full; thats why swimming right after eating isnt always a good idea. I always thought I could run faster on an empty stomach; there was a pancake 5K event I ran in for a few years where everyone ate pancakes AFTER the race. So I still have a problem with his excuse about his mom affecting his play. He could also get a part-time job somewhere (a restaurant?) that not only helps pay the bills but gets him some more access to chow.



  1. He must sneak into those lame raves. I’m with the band. Or the the DJ. Or whatever they call those “artists” who play the raves.

  2. Great music clip. Agree this mystery could have been cleared up weeks ago. Why didn’t Aaaaaardvark tell Gilbo this the first three times he questioned him about his inconsistent play. I would have preferred the point shaving scandal.

    Is Gil going to send Aaaaron you a soup kitchen before each remaining game?

  3. I’ve never been a high school teacher or anything, but it seems like Gil is just blatantly ignoring all sorts of boundaries here. Aaaaron is admitting his mom is a repeat offender druggie — to his coach? And his coach is going to do — what?

    If it was my high school coach, Mugsy McGuinness, poor ol’ Mom would be in handcuffs in the back of a squad car before Aaaaron left the room.

  4. There are federal programs for breakfast at school, etc. C’mon. Like the local AAU coach hasn’t gotten onto this already, if Aaaaaardvark has any talent? Please. I’m so tired of this totally illogical sh*t.. I’m finally gonna blow my head off. And I’ve been following this strip for 25 years.

  5. There are federal programs, etc…. (“Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses or AAU coaches?”) It’s clear I am at jeopardy of being drummed out of the TWIM corps for my pointing out the obvious, but I was a teacher and a coach for decades myself, and can tell you there is nothing remotely unusual about Aa’s predicament. I worked with cases “the system” had given up on, and can tell you that however hokey or ill-told the aa-aa story may be, I saw similar ones lived out over and over again. I have sneered like everyone else at any number of unrealistic GT story arcs, but am here to tell you this one is waaay too real.

  6. And again, there’s also nothing remotely unusual about Gil’s intervention. In most states, he is required to intervene if he suspects neglect, abuse, or crime, at least by calling the state hotline or notifying the designated person in his school who will then initiate the intervention.
