Hats Off!

Filed under: Just Plain Awesome, softball — robmize2013 @ 9:14 pm

As Harry Carey would say– Holy cow! Its a rarity for there to be a real happy moment in the middle of a storyline, but this is it. Hats for everyone. And theyre all red, to go along with the red pants and red jerseys. How heartwarming. Oh yeah, hearts are red too!

Thats really gonna be a statement when they all walk into a room with their new fedoras on.. I think its just a rare feel-good moment in a strip that rarely has any until the end of a story, and even then its usually contrived. This is really different in that regard. Team unity should be over the top now.

Of course its possible that there are storm clouds ahead and Whigrub is merely teasing us with good feelings before the inevitable jealousy of some sort creeps in, but I tell ya, I’m gonna enjoy this while it lasts.


  1. Not to pat myself on the back or nothin’, but I think I that I predicted that there would be several strips of this nonsense about the hats, and sadly, that looks like that’s the case

  2. “If the softball team doesn’t win the rest of its games I’ll eat my hat.”

  3. Sorry, Rob, but I’m going to harsh your mellow by asking questions, questions, questions….

    How long did it take them to knit those hats? How many girls are on the team? Did everyone get the same size hat? Why is everything in the background in panel one pastel lime green?
