Taking all the credit huh?

Oh we just Knew that Spiller was gonna take all the credit for the last 2 football victories, even though as far as I could tell he wasnt even on the field. Whats he gonna say when they inevitably lose a game?

When I was a baseball coach, I told the kids up front ” You guys get all the credit for the victories, and I’ll take all the blame for the losses.” I’m sure Spiller never heard that one from Gil.

At least in P2 they infer that everyone knows who he is, and they’ll let his talk fall off them like water off a rock. Whats the harm? When something negative happens, and it will, mark my words.

And in P3 we have more hypnotism ahead as one of the players needs a B on a test to be eligible for football. Huh? Arent we a bit late for this statement? I thought once the season started you were good to go, but I never played high school football so I dont know this answer very well.

But what I DO know is one freakin test result isnt gonna skew your GPA that much. Grades are quarterly, and are based on an average of ALL tests, not one. And he infers that he needs a B– that means he must be lower then standard to start with, so why the hell is he eligible NOW, by his logic?? I always thought a C average for athletes was good enough, but again, I didnt play on any teams in high school, plus maybe its different now, but a B is still a B, which is still above average.

But this strip has to simplify matters to a fault, so they come up with this ridiculous premise. I’m figuring this player will either develop eye problems or get an F on his test and then blame Spiller for the whole thing, which is the whole point of the storyline:

If you’re gonna take the cheers you gotta handle the boos. Lets see how Spiller does when his magic runs out.

In honor of the student in P1 wearing a shirt with a lightning bolt on it, here’s a clip from SHAZAM! an old TV show I used to watch on Saturday mornings. I’m sure some of you remember it.


  1. Yeah. I sort of called it yesterday. Tool bag Spiller is way too predictable

  2. I knew kids in the early 80’s who were ineligible one week but good to go the next. But no friggin B on a test should be necessary. Monkey spanker should have taken ceramics.

  3. 1. It’s all fun and games until people start believing their own bullshit and think they’re the second coming of Jesus… If I taught at Milford I’d have my English classes watch “Elmer Gantry” and “A Face in the Crowd”…

    2. Oh, and motherfuck Tevin Claxton with his flippant “What’s the harm? Boyd’s gonna be Boyd and it’s not like anyone takes him seriously anyway!” Because in the year of 2021, I’d have thought enough people would have learned their lessons already on just how dangerous this mindset can be…

    3. I’m *still* trying to work out how this is all related to Boyd’s Madden ’22 party… Too many pieces of this puzzle yet to be found.

  4. As Fred Rogers would ask, “Can you say ‘placebo effect?'”

  5. Frank, you did call it, indeed. Shoot, I think you and I should fill out applications to be the scriptwriters for Thorpiverse(ha).

    And did T-verse think we all fell off the turnip wagon yesterday and believed that Beaver was going to walk around the hallway with a great amount of humility? There is an “I” in the word “Spiller”.

  6. Those lightning bolt shirts seem to show up a lot. Wasn’t that the Valley Modified ragtag baseball teams’ emblem? Almost daily I think, “They aren’t taking this hypnosis stupidity seriously, Boyd will be called out for it, or laughed at, or something.” But then, no, it just keeps going! And getting worse! How do you hypnotize someone to pass an Algebra test? Can you put someone “under” and then feed them all the formulas, with, “you will not forget, you will not forget…”?

  7. Wait, now I remember. Valley Modified had exclamation point shirts I think.

  9. P 2: in other words, “…fortunately, everyone knows Boyd Spiller is a windbag douche…”

  10. […] all a ruse yet she tried to convince herself otherwise. No matter that Tevin has said so much on multiple occasions (as has Gordon); Kianna wanted to believe the kid getting a B on his algebra test was proof of […]
