Night Owls

Well someone forgot to tell the defense to show up – all the worrying about 7 on 7’s made everyone forget about the other side of the ball, and its a free-for-all, albeit more exciting then a 7-6 taffy pull. Great Panel 1, but Panel 2 makes no sense as the defender is at least 5 yards offsides at the snap. Starting in the opponents backfield and still giving up 34 points is something nobody can help you with, let alone real coaches. Dont know where the fans all dissappeared to – maybe they saw Marty’s whiskey in his cabin and are lined up for a sip. All televised too! Hey, who’s # 44? Nice catch and score – looks like that locks up the game and we can show Gil shaking hands with the Oakwood coach who was last seen in 2013 –


and before that all the way back in 2007!

Obviously Tod Andrews either lost his hair, his color, or both. I almost lost my mind researching this info! Happy Saturday!!

Dont believe me just watch.

P1 Gil repeats what he said yesterday and adds that coaching caveat – forget about whos watching you and concentrate on your job, and the rest will take care of itself. Another life lesson from the GilFather.

And we’re back in party mode with Boo Radley announcing her weekend plans to the girls who dont seem too keen on watching a show at midnight. Well Boo will get someone to go, and his name is True. And I figure there’s some trouble ahead with a late night, a romantic setting and the Mystic Pranks ready to split your ears out. The scouts wont have an answer for how fast True can get in the soup in Central City.

Is there a pill for being mono-focused?

Well its 1 and done for mister Howry as Leisl determines he needs to broaden himself to play in her league. I suppose she’s right; he is nice enough to donate pills to Max’s cause for improving his hoop skills, and he’s a basketball savant. But that wont win a girls heart like a down-to-earth personality and better conversation skills. Sorry Charlie (or Bobby). Maybe one of the players can help him; Gil is too busy renovating his bar area.

Who’s Pushing The Pedals On The Season Cycle?

Over Chinese takeout, Art and True rehash the lukewarm drama. Wait, what is the nature of this “following”, True? We haven’t seen it, other than Hale delivering his Neidermeyerisms to a captive audience of other players he’s working out with in practice. Yeah, we’re still just in practice.

Panel two works as a nice meta-textual joke. No! Please don’t do that, Art. You keep doing it and you have none of the persuasive powers that you think you have so you’re just wasting everybody’s time. Now, pass me another squid roll.

Bonfire? I thought maybe we’d missed it. Hey, once it gets good and hot, can we toss this plot on it and start fresh?

The end of summer, a bonfire and another juncture on the “season cycle” reminds me of this haunting song:

The freak hand of all freak hands

Filed under: Gil Thorp — Tags: — robmize2013 @ 1:09 pm

Amy settles in as a supersub, not to be confused with those offered at Subway or McDonalds, and Conrad is rightfully glad that he can share success experiences with her. But wait. Something’s wrong with his hand. Dont know for sure, but in P2 it appears to be trembling a bit as I detect a motion line near his right pant leg. Then in P3 she wonders about ‘ the hand’. Who calls someone elses hand ‘the hand’? Why not ‘your hand’?  Anyway, this may be the start of a nervous disorder that will eventually cause Luckey to be completely bedridden and wish he was able to run into doors and get root beer splashed on him. The good old days. He may have to change his nickname to Shakey as well. All speculation here, dont get too worked up folks, it may just be a tic. But definitely worth keeping an eye on, as if freak hands arent easy enough to look at around here. Hope Luckey consults his physician pronto. Maybe that old player who’s now a doctor (name escapes me, think he married Bitsy Twill) could take a look at him. And also – -it looks like his right hand is on his left side as well. Was on his right side in P2. Mr. Artist, please remember which hand is which next time.

And I think you should all give me a hand for making it through this post.
