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.

I guess we’re all going to have to just be fine with whatever is going on with the different colored t-shirts and how they confusingly signal who is speaking to whom in the nominal dialogue. In any case, it’s a nice distraction from the fact that the interrogator in panel one appears to be hoisting a large pumpkin.
I’m sure Gil’s tone in panel three is supposed to be some sort of admixture of Lombardi and Patton, but I prefer to read it in a Dennis Hopper in Hoosiers voice.
Bonus Point: Mad shoutout to the Chicago Red Stars! Are Rubin and Whigham trying to tell us something?
Minus Point: Gentlemen, not gents?
I’ll leave it to our commenters to parse the rest.
It could be both I suppose.
Aside from that, I’m rather flabbergasted that Milford’s tactic is to put in a player who has been shown to be unable to compete on the assumption the defense will target her at the expense of their normal assignments, thereby allowing Austin Shuford a clear path to the end zone. However, I have to admit that it certainly seems to have worked.
