It takes a paper to raise a child

Boy these coaches sure plan ahead– instead of off-season weight-training in summer, they wait til the local rag notices their lack of muscle up front and hope the kids read the rag before it becomes a fishwrap. (Some of you remember I’m a mailman. Years ago we used to get a local news mailing once a month or so that looked like a folded paper, and we called it the fishwrap.)

What a pair of dummies. If they ever donated their bodies to science, the doctors would find nothing inside of em but wood.

P2– Last I checked, fury hath nothing to do with the size of ones biceps. Another dummy. (More wood inside)

And in P3 we have the besties reading the paper together (oh Pleeeeezze! Who the hell does that?) with a plate of cookies to one side. Methinks if you’re sharing cookies, normal people would put the plate in the middle, allowing both of you equal opportunity to graze as your perusing the local rag (future fishwrap).

Yep, 2 more dummies. (You know what goes here)


  1. What’s hilarious is the idea that teenagers would be reading the news on newsprint and not on their phones or laptops.

  3. JT… my thoughts exactly. He looks like that pipsqueak in the old Joe Weider comic book ads that gets told by the big guy “ I’d punch you out but you might dry up and blow away”. And what’s with female dumb and dumber breathlessly reading an actual newspaper and giving a fuck about what Heather sez? They should be sayin’ “… haha… look at these comics…Snoopy is fuckin cool but that Gil Thorp guy is a pud…”

  6. 1. So instead of doing some, you know, actual coaching, Gilberto calls out his own players for being soft scrawny girly boys in the local paper to inspire them somehow? Since, you know, being scrawny is totally the players’ fault and not Gilberto for failing to train them properly?? And Kazuo thinks it’s a Belichickian stroke of genius because of course he fucking does being a sniveling little kiss-ass..

    1a. You will remember that for the past 2-3 seasons Gilberto’s football teams seemed to regularly get out-muscled… Anybody noticing a trend here?

    2. Dude, don’t nobody want to see your bird chest… Go show it to the girls over at cheerleader practice…

    3. It’s funny because these girls are starters (and one of them is team captain) and they need Heather Cronkite to tell them what their problems are…

    4. It goes without saying that high school sports reporting doesn’t work this way…

  8. Trevor Lawrence has the chest of Vic and the Amazing Obnoxious Technicolor P.A. Announcements.

  9. […] in America where kids read GRIT the daily papers, Gildeaux lets Heather play up his squad’s scrawniness, then sits back and lets the volunteers roll in. Gordon obviously has confidence in his strength […]
