Wild Thing, you make Mudlarks sing

I would think one of the school officials at the game would put an end to the sign-toting girls attendance at this game and excuse them from the premises, cardboard sign being folded and disposed of in the giant trash bin they have at these events that invariable gets overfilled with all the various empty plastic bottles and other concession items that collect during the course of several games until finally they topple to the ground and are walked around for a few days before being disposed of.

Predictably Gil is napping in the dugout and oblivious to the carnage of wildness Ryan displays until the horse is out of the barn. I recall Bob Uecker announcing in Major League: ” Ball 4, Ball 5. Ball 8.” Ah who gives a crap??”

How one of the pitches wasnt a hit-batsman I’ll never figure. Maybe Ryan needs special glasses, so he cant read signs as well. Then he’ll pitch better. Hey, that would be a better plot then what we have here.





  1. Ryan is pretty soft if he can’t handle a stupid sign that some dingy broads brought to the game. Gil and Buttermaker (Walter Matthau’s character in Bad News Bears) have one thing in common. They both get sloshed in the dugout. One big difference-Buttermaker can handle his Schlitz and still coach. Gil’s spiked Gatorade renders him useless.

  2. Is that Buddy Bader in panel 1 breaking the fourth wall and smirking to the readers? Maybe he’s in on this devious Central City plot. Seeking revenge for his dad’s imprisonment, he’s become a double agent, sabotaging Milford’s team from within.

  3. […] Star (by going to Marjie Ducey with the story), with protest posters at the games (worked on Ryan Van Auken, didn’t it?), and with a violent Tweetstorm. What kind of tweets do you all think would take […]
