KRAK! Attack At Madison

Filed under: actual action, baseball, Madison Time, Marty Moon — nedryerson @ 10:25 am

Hey, look! It’s Marty Moon, who has been keeping a pretty low profile of late. He dragged his crate over to Madison and he’s giving us an update on what’s been happening on the diamond. A whole host of also rans have been doing baseball things. Gonzo has been pitching a “dandy” and, looking to start an offensive charge, we have Dallas George and Curtis Charles getting on base, setting the table for DUN DUN DUNNNN, Zane Clark! As you recall, Zane started in right for this game. His work on the mound has been shaky of late, but now it’s time to see how he’s doing at the plate.

The Madison pitcher throws Zane a high fastball and KRAK! Zane stings it! A stinger. Oh boy, oh boy. Did he sting it hard enough to get in at least the tying run? We’ll leave it right there for now. Hey, isn’t this better than Library Board shenanigans and Mimi forcing college down Corina’s throat? Um, maybe?

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Madison Time video. I thought maybe I had mined all the interesting (a relative term) clips from YouTube, but here’s one that showed up in the last year. It’s the standard Ray Bryant Combo recording but it features film of boring white people, Joan Darby and Joe Cash, demonstrating all the intricate Madison Time moves with plenty of close ups for those of you that haven’t been able to pick up the steps so far. Wow, look at their “Rifleman”! That oughta clear the dance floor! Their “Wilt Chamberlain” could use a little work though. Enjoy!



  1. Wait… When was it ever established that Zane plays any position other than pitcher?

    And wouldn’t Zane be a really shitty hitter? By his own admission all he did during his two-year hiatus was occasionally practice his pitching with his little brother, right??

  2. Even if it’s caught for an out, it seems like Zane ‘hit the shit out of it’ as Tommy Lasorda used to say. This proves that he’s not upset about Katy and her dick-wad dad anymore,….he’s just pissed…and that’s what he’s thinking about when he ‘stings’ that pitch. Not baseball. Not the score. Not the pitch that might be comin. What he’s thinkin’ is ….”Just who tf do those two candy-asses think they are, tryin’ to take away me and my little brother and sister’s internet access? That. Ugly. Mother. Fucker…..I’m gettin’ on that board if it’s the last thing I do….UNNNHHHH”….KRAK!

  3. KRAK is a continuation of a trend of sounds that appear to be coming out of Mr. Wacky’s Book of Sounds(Mr. Wacky was a Fame episode where Danny plays his sidekick) or a perversion of John Kruk’s name, a solid player in the Majors, primarily with the Phillies. Take your pick.

  4. Zane will get robbed or it will be caught at the fence, bank on it.

  6. Geez Mop…how the heck did you know what was gonna’ happen today? Do you have ESP or something?

  7. Well, considering my 5% accuracy rate on predictions, I wouldn’t say ESP. It just seemed too obvious with the way they ended yesterday’s strip.

  8. […] or Curtis Charles on the hardwood before, but they’ve both participated in football and baseball in the last year. Dallas and Curtis both caught passes for the Mudlarks in 2020. Maybe they were […]
