    I can’t believe he is going to keep the silly outfit on during the competition. This strip has new surprises every week.

    Well, it ’s almost time . . .

    Let’s hope Alley’s up to it.

    Don’t get your hopes up everybody. The game isn’t going to start yet. It’ll take a week for the Benders to cover the coin toss.

    Unca Scrooge. Yesterday you mentioned that the comments here may be a wasted effort. That’s not true. The comments are the most entertaining thing on this site.
    Once again the Benders show us that the entire weeks offering can be done in six panels.
    Two days of material that they spread out over seven days.

    What coin? Did Mayan’s use coins as “money”? Not likely. The “referee” will probably rip out the heart of a sheep, and if the heart is still beating, then Yochi goes first, if not, Alley goes. Now THAT’S the Mayan way of sports!!

    CrispyBacon…I also spend a lot more time on the comments.. no matter how inane, as they are definitely the core of the fun of the strip. The strip provides the ’tators with the fuel for their ongoing annoyance with the Benders.. but some actually seem to research the Mayan culture… and that is a GOOD thing, as Martha sez.

    Good Morning Benders and all The game is about to start.
    The fix is in, with Alley ill-trained and now wearing for the first time a uniform that limits his movements. Ichik’s blowing off
    Alley’s concerns show where his mind is.

    There really is little need to look at the strip when you have the Firebrand Twins telling us the story. Maybe the Benders should just drop the art and go directly to prose.
    And yes, I find the comments here more entertaining then the strip, which is a sad statement for one that WAS an Alley Oop fan.

    It’s going to be an exciting December and January when they finally start playing.

    Wow! The story’s moving now. Looks like I might eat crow on previous comments. Good move guys!

    NightGaunt, I like that whenever Lavainge thinks of what she needs, it is there. That’s good lucid dream control. When she needs to get out of Tucker’s dream, how much of a problem will the Baron/Baroness be? Will Alley be able to cope with her and bring Lavainge out of the dream? Will Tucker be rescued? How can Alley fight things from a different dimension which have no substance in this one?
    Oooh! Will he have to go into the dream and fight the evil entity there? As long as his body is protected in this dimension, that’d work!
    Larry! excellent cliffhanger! What’s next?!?
    The Bender’s have given me a mild, pleasant surprise.
    Actual progression of the strip!
    How long will it continue? I know that Monday’s strip will only be the last panel or 2 of today’s strip. So Tuesday, can I actually expect even more progression? Perhaps, the ball will be served by 1 of the team members? Or will we have a week or 2 of trash talk by each team to the other? I hate being given a taste of hope, only to have it dashed, again!
    And again, and again!

    The real Oop wouldn’t be playing along with any of this Mayan game foolishness. Nor would he have allowed Oola out of his sight. Maybe the Arab guy will pop in and give Lola to Yochi so Alley and Oola can go home.

    I trust the Benders to do the right thing with this strip. I have enjoyed viewing it for too many years to give uo on it.

    We gotta trust them, they’re in charge. I just wish it was like the Oop of the 40’s and 50’s that I remember.
