P1: Carrie Hobson is kinda terrible at pitching except when she’s thinking about boys. Noted. I’m not gonna get my hopes too high for this season’s softball plot.
P2: I recognize the Chief has little room to work with when it comes to making the various characters distinctive, but I find Rackley’s hair even more improbable than Dafne Dafonte’s or Aaron Aagard’s. (What is with the alliterative names in Milford? It wasn’t that long ago that we had Wynn and Wendy Wiley…)
P3: I hadn’t realized obnoxious was a shot putter stereotype. Again, noted.
Cute boys are all the girls can think about, amirite fellas? Ha Ha!
Bonus point: That is the most pronounced case of EES I have yet seen and somehow Carrie’s face seems (relatively speaking) OK in panel three.
Dafne Dafonte is a shoo-in for the Milford Hall of Name.
I have to wonder if sharing details of your ‘killer story’ with someone tied into the Milford administration is sound journalistic practice. Then again, looking at Mimi’s meathook in panel two, I would do my best to keep her on my side…
Panel 1: I almost want to run the color version of today’s strip as the electric blue over black shirt under with tie look is quite a striking look on Kaz.
Oh yeah… Don’t even ask me what is going on with Kaz’s collar or how he knotted his tie.
Panel 2: Julius needs to layoff the Nutboyz and the Freezi Bombs if he wants to look good in those short pants.
Panel 3: Mike and Ken really should keep this thing to themselves rather than just blab on and on in the locker room. Their fixation on Aaron is starting to get rather unhealthy it seems…
Tomorrow’s strip is so frustrating that I’m posting it today (also I’m slammed at work tomorrow by which I mean today).
Bonus point: Love Ken’s sideburn styling.
That is stone cold, narration box. Our man quadruple A is just one member of the team who had an off night. Pretty sure the rest of the team has to take responsibility for their contributions to the outcome.
What oh what can possibly be written on AaAa’s t-shirt? I’m sure our commenters can come up with a few ideas.
Hey, what the heck happened in panel three? I thought Ken and Mike were our dynamic drug busting duo. I would really like to see the reference photo for the guy on the right’s hand. That meathook makes Chuck Bednarik look like a hand model.
Nothing like pulling a tall Freezy Bomb at the Swifti Mart in the dead of winter.
Did I say I was OK with the continued antics of Ken and Mike? I suppose that I did but these two really need to pick up the pace. Grabbing a drink at the corner store ain’t exactly the most exciting plot device.
I suppose it’s important to establish the domestic situation of Milford basketball players early in the arc as it seems we’ve seen more than a few of them (Andrew Gregory and Ted Pearse for example) where that drove the plot.
Other than that, not much to say about today’s strip other than I’m impressed by Ma Aardvark’s flexible neck.
