Cheap shot artists

In P1 I find it odd that the Tilden sign in background doesnt fit the yellow background. Its as if they made the background first and realized 6 big letters cant fit inside it. I dont know why there are big trees where the opposing stands should be.. I see stands to the far right but how long is the field if the stands are that far away? And where are the sideline personnel ( players, coaches, trainers, yard marker holders) Way too few people in the shot for it to be realistic.

P2 is ok, but P3 has Chances parents just now discovering that their son is involved in a skirmish? They both need new glasses if they didnt see the long sideline run by Chance followed by the late hit and subsequent takedown.

I would think there should be offsetting penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct meated out by the refs. Anything else should draw the ire of Gil and initiate another life lesson afterward.



  1. I see a goatee on one ref, just like Chet’s. We have seen nothing suggesting Chet is a referee, but we do know that a goatee is the one undeniable sign of perfidy in Mfnrd. Thus Chance’s grandparents may be saying “Oh no, is that that douchebag Ballard, from the school board?” If it is, we can can expect Chance to be kicked out of the game and Charlie to be sent in.

    (At my high school, the chemistry teacher, Spud Forbes, also refereed football. He had a wonderful placard on his office desk, reading “You can only coast downhill.”)

  2. What are the elderly Macys doing, looking UPWARD

    Look, up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s SUPERMAN

    “Sorry, Coach, #53 tried to stick Krypton up my jock strap. I hope I didn’t hurt him.”

    At Milford High School in Ms. Rizk’s homeroom period, he’s mild-mannered Clark Kent…

  3. I’d say that Gil needs to be involved in this somehow but I don’t think he’s even there

  4. The narration box says ‘the officials step in -‘ but to me it looks more like they are awkwardly hugging.

  5. Franku, I think you answered your own question(ha). I think he’s in that UFO that’s landing on the field that the Macys have spotted in P3. Of course, he’ll have the perfect answer even though he wasn’t at the scene of the crime.
    You da Man, Franku. Good point. What’s sad is, you’ve been doing more coaching than Coach Gilberto(ha ha).

  6. Good one, Tim. I was going to throw in Texas Two-Step, but yours works better. You da Man.

  7. […] stars come, Chance Macy has been a pretty boring one. Except for getting situationally mad and going off on a Tilden cheap-shot artist, he’s been completely low-key. The whole Charlie Roh/Chet […]
