This Is Going To Be The Most Awkward Intervention Ever.

Panel two sure is carrying a lot of narrative weight, isn’t it?

Anyway, Molly isn’t a drug she’s a girl and AAAA’s mom is clearly another Rustbelt opioid addict.

Bonus points:

The risers on those bleachers look rather comfortable if impractical.

It’s nice to see Lampy from A3G picking up work.

Does Gil Even Have A Seat On The Bus?

Well, Heather didn’t end up in a refrigerator, so this is a slightly more satisfying wind up of the plot than the Addison ‘Boo’ Radley arc.

Gotta give Gil credit for flat out admitting he hadn’t really given a lot of thought to the VT game.

If I could see one alternate panel, it would be a close up of Austin’s face while Gil is delivering the panel one dialogue. I wonder if Austin is a senior?

Thinking Long-Term? Is That Even Allowed?

P1: “But don’t worry, even though you’re totally ineffective, you’ll still get snaps for some reason.”

P2: Super Moon! How topical!

P3: Again, Hakeem’s form looks terrible.

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

So, Who Is Coaching The QB’s At Milford Anyway?

111616

Among my many athletic shortcomings, the ability to throw overhand is perhaps the worst. That said, I can confidently state that my technique is better than Hakeem’s in panel two.

Bonus point: We have upgraded from an Ampeg 6×10 to the mighty Ampeg 8×10!

The Disaster We All Predicted

110916

If Heather is the second or third string TE, then why in the heck would you have her in on plays where you anticipated the TE blocking? I suppose it is a twelfth dimensional chess move on Gil’s part only the results are just what you’d expect and, indeed, was predicted repeatedly in comments.

Not sure the size discrepancy is really to blame in panel one, however, as I’m not sure how HE’s elbow to elbow blocking technique is supposed to work.

Minus points: Can’t the narration box play along with our latest game here at TWIM? That should be the LB and DE shrugging HE off…

The Chip Off The Block Doesn’t Fall Far From The Tree

We need some kind of prominent forelock tag around here…

And, just to save everyone else the trouble of looking it up, yes, that song came out right around the time these two would’ve been toddlers.

Yet Another Link In A Seemingly Unending Chain Of Idiots

Were the torrid strips of the past few days getting you a little flustered with all of the hand off practice? Today’s panels should help cool your jets.

Just Straight Up Calling Him A Dummy To His Face

1004116

So, Kevin has apparently, secretly if you will, always wanted to play quarterback but, despite diligently practicing his drills on the beach, doesn’t seem to know shit about how to do it.

As opposed to Heather, washed up varsity soccer player and neophyte trainer, who does. I am going to have to assume that at some point here we’re going to learn that her dad/brother/some-other-male-possibly-even-Aaron-Rodgers-for-all-I-know taught her so well that she is sufficiently proficient to be an ad-hoc coach. Furthermore, not only does Heather know how to coach the position, but she then immediately gloms onto the first lumbering oaf to show any interest in learning.

Yep, that all ties together about as well as spaghetti shoelaces.
