    I take it Jimmy Jarbo is the guy who slipped on the ice. It’ll be interesting to see what that has to do with the baseball season.

    Perhaps this Facebook page provides a clue:
    Jarbo is a lifestyle collection with European designer sensibility. Edgy, modern, and wearable, Jarbo indulges the sophisticated woman who seeks luxurious comfort and timeless fashion.

    On the side, Jimmy Jarbo plays Bigfoot for various cryptozoology channels on YouTube.

    I don’t know, the ice-slipper seemed to be a bit husky to be a high school shortstop. On another note – is Kaz from the 50’s?

    I thought the same thing about the ice-slipper, but Jarbo in panel 2 looks kind of husky for a shortstop.

    That P2 shot is Jimmy Jarbo “covering ground” at shortstop? The ball is on the ground between his legs, far away from his glove, and his body position has him running right past it, not leaning to scoop it up or nuthin. The ball is probably headed for the outfield. This is not what I would call good shortstopping.

    Jarbo has a bad case of shrunken head syndrome too.

    Jimmy Jumbo and Hard Knox Foley up the middle? A beefed up Dinty Moore in CF? Kaz is Cletus (Jerry Reed) to Gil’s Bandit. Buckle up Thor Pa fans, we are going to have ALOT of material to work with this Spring.

    Haven’t seen legs this outsized since I lost my “Keep on Truckin” poster…

    “Jimmy Jarbo.” Marty Moon is going to have trouble with this name in the late innings since he’s pretty well sauced by the fourth or fifth inning anymore.

    It’s almost like they’re pulling name out of thin air. What about the new transfer student, Madiq Burns. What position will he play?

    …well said, that’s why we are here, for the material!

    Jimmy Jarbo, Brody Abro… plenty of Eastern Europe ethnicity in Milford lately, Kaz apparently started the influx!

    How do you know in which direction the ball is going without “lines of velocity” to show you? Don’t use imagination much, do you?

    Just waiting for opposing players like Mike Hunt and Hugh G. Rection to make it into the storyline

    susanwobb, in soccer we’d say he’s about to be nutmegged. How did the soccer team do this year, anyway?
