Hat Day!

Filed under: huge hats, Just plain sad, Mimi Thorp — nedryerson @ 6:30 am


In all the shuffle of idiotic plot devices, I had totally forgotten about the hats. It’s hat day? Game days are hat days, so it must be game day.

Linda looks a bit unnerved. She’s probably not into the hat. Also, her outfit makes her look like the water bottle in the foreground. See the cafeteria group looking at her like, who’s the person sized water bottle with the red cap?

It’s time for Mimi to address Linda’s issues. She already brilliantly sorted out Nancy and Molly with book club. Now she has to get Linda fired up for volleyball. Because Linda has a full ride scholarship to play volleyball, and it’s mid June and Linda is moping up a storm because she’s not on the Olympic volleyball team yet.

Mimi’s first salvo: That mid level college you’re attending has a craptastic volleyball team. A player of your caliber is probably not going to make a difference there.


  1. Ah, my favorite Coaches Thorp coaching maneuver: Affecting whithering contempt. Gets ’em every time!

  2. I had forgotten that game days are hat days too. I thought Linda might have been going for some sort of women’s Jacques Cousteau Halloween costume look.

  3. Is that supposed to be Linda? or is it Jaxon in P2?

  4. So, Mimi is basically sayin’ to her” you know what?…..that team you want to play on ain’t shit and neither are you, cookie, so good move..” That’s right Mimi….Make her mad….”fuck you coach….I’ll show you and your coffee-swilling husband that I can too play dammit”….Mimi is a coaching/counseling genius. She got to Moon, and a HS girl with a bad attitude is no problem for her either.

  5. I was expecting a more positive approach, but heck, if guilting the kid is easier, Mimi, go for it.

  6. Looks like Linda is on Team Zissou. Wonder if she’s got a Speedo on under that outfit.

  7. Well gee Mimi- I’ll still have 3 more years to play after next year when we get crushed. How the fuck do you know they wont be really good the next 3 years?? What an assinine remark to make. No coach would ever discourage a player from chasing their dream. Tell her to stick it up her ass Linda!

  8. Linda no look too tall. Mimi is taller. Linda must be a setter. “Gee, if I was as big as Wilt Chamberlain I could be an Olympian.” Boo f’n hoo!

  9. Linda’s skirt is the same color and pattern as Snooty Girl’s thermos. Interesting style choice.
