Louisville, Kentucky is known for a number of things, including a pretty decent college basketball team. The city has also made its mark on American cuisine via the Hot Brown, the signature sandwich of the Brown Hotel (and one of the better ways I can think of to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey).
Just as bacon is one of the key ingredients of a good Hot Brown, Max Bacon’s passing will be key to a hot Ken Brown sinking the winning shot against Jefferson. As discussed on Thursday, why the Jeffs are leaving Ken open when he killed them in their last meeting is beyond me. Then again, so is Gil essentially handing the tactical reins of his team over to his student manager.
Wonder what the statute of limitations is on resting on your laurels after winning a championship in another sport? That question could be asked of this strip’s creators as well.
An exciting finish in store as its Max Adderall against Antoine Reed and darn if anyone else is on the court because these 2 are gonna settle it right here right now. Or maybe tomorrow. Who needs any help defense or rebounds when its one on one? Will Max score and be the hero, or miss and feel like a goat who cant win even though this opponent looks like he could play for the Lakers any day now. Hope Max finds an open man, because Reed isnt giving him any look with those long limbs blocking any shot. Gil needs a timeout to sort things out and call a play, but I’m sure he’s on auto-pilot until April when he tells Marjie the batting order.

Appropos of yesterday’s discussion in comments, we learn that Theo and Bobby – What are they doing in panel one? Are they really supposed to be drinking and talking at the same time? – are shopping at the S Mart, where they bought Big sodas and gazed away from the Yoo Hoo poster.
Hey, speaking of brands, it’s back over to Max Bacon (r) where he’s… sticky? I guess? Sure, that works. More accurately, Max looks a little stocky. It maybe that all of those sugar pills are starting to catch up with him. Nah, maybe he just needs to cut back on the flavored chocolate beverages.

Relax, everybody. Take a breather. Let’s ease into March with a wash, rinse, repeat strip.
The girls are “breaking even” while Bobby is “breaking bad”. What exactly is Bobby delivering to Max? It looks like a couple dart flights, or is that supposed to be a baggie of some sort? Whatever he’s delivering, it is still producing sizzling, silhouetted results.

Today’s strip has a Grease-like feel to it as some Lady Mudlarks get Lysol to “tell them more, tell them more” about her date with Bobby. Over burgers and bottled water, Lysol reveals little about Bobby. We don’t even find out how the date ended, though they probably kissed pretty hard given that Lysol’s mouth has shifted from beneath her nose.
Panel 3 leaves us with Lysol picking up the baton of unpaid Milford coach. Still no Mimi sighting this season beyond her appearance in the Christmas Day strip.

We’ve been to Ricozzi’s before – just once. Nice to see Whigham remember some of the architectural details of the place. The pizza tray stand is a nice little touch, too. Rubin thinks we haven’t remembered these characters’ names, or have forgotten them out of sheer boredom.
Speaking of sheer boredom, how about this date? Did you know a lot of the time coaches don’t worry about teaching proper cutting to their players? That’d come as no surprise in Milford, where the coaches don’t show up during the season, much less worry about teaching their players anything. By evening’s end, Bobby will have molded another unpaid coach for the Thorps.
