…And Then Maybe Show Us

Filed under: actual action, football, Tilden — nedryerson @ 6:59 am


We are still at Tilden and we must now, once again, see the performance of Charlie Roh from the perspective of overly invested stepfather Chet Ballard. Does panel 3 indicate that Charlie has succeed in carrying the ball or is Chet just congratulating him for getting out on the field?

There are always questions left unanswered. Will we circle back to Chance Macy and why his parents (or grandparents?) expressed some concern when the cheap shots started flying?

I love Chet’s very precisely constructed turtleneck. It reminds me of those Star Fleet uniforms from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.



  1. Well, I guess that Charlie will fumble-up the game into a loss and Step-dick Ballard will place blame on Gil for not “playing him more”, even though all he himself ever does with the kid is play a lazy game of catch in the back yard. He doesn’t play more because he fumbles, Chet. P3 looks like he could be sayin’ “call me ‘dad’ or I’ll beat your ass” too.

  3. Crutches? Is that like Guy Cabellero’s wheelchair? “IT’S FOR RESPECT!!!”

  4. Doncha just love that REM Shiny Happy People video background in P2? The only thing missing in that scene is the B-52 singer. She may in on the next play.

    Loved the Wrath of Khan observation, Ned. Not even gonna try.

  5. I didn’t take a very close look at those crutches before dashing off my post this morning. It’s a little weird how Chance is resting on the crutches with his left arm threaded behind the hand grip part. He may want to take a few steps back before he gets bowled over and gets his arm broken.

  6. CRUTCHES this early?! RICE or METH,this is where Chance should be elevating the ankle.

  7. …and why is Chet trying to live vicariously through someone else’s kid? The bored look on Roh’s face sez it all

  8. P1 is wrong 3 ways. Chance hurt his Left ankle, as the trainor is examining it on 10-5. But he’s walking on his left ankle with the crutches. The handles of the crutches are above his hands thus he cant grip them properly and his arms are just dangling down. Lazy artwork times 2! He also in full fucking uniform even though he’s obviously not playing! Is this the same game still? If so I take back the last comment about the uniform. But why not just sit on the bench til the games over then use crutches later? Why stand up so soon after an injury like that?

  9. You don’t reckon Chance faked an injury to give Charlie some playing time, kinda like True Standish did for Jarrod Hale a few years ago?

  10. Either Trainer Rick Scott is not paying attention or Chance is an uncooperative patient. Those who have said that the ankle should be iced and elevated at this point ARE paying attention. (“You can either stay down with this icepack or you can wait for us in the locker room.”) Unless it’s a warm night, he should also have a poncho as he is vulnerable to shock, especially after going from flat out to stationary.
