    Another great story line. Who won?

    Couldn’t they come up with something more topical than foreign students of unusual ethnicity coming to America and taking part in high school sports? Oh, never mind.

    Milford won — otherwise panels 2 and 3 would NOT be very polite.

    Why can’t there be a story line based totally on the team’s winning or losing? Through that, can come additional story lines on team chemistry, jealousy, and envy. Oh well, I guess boring us faithful readers with this CRAP is easier to do.

    I appreciate the effort by Neal Rubin to address issues outside sports. To the best of my knowledge no other strip addresses issues such as a high school girl with a child trying to finish school and have a “normal” life. The issue during basketball season of a player dealing with the death of a sibling showed promise until the peacock made an appearance.

    You do have a point, though. Not every season of every sport has to involve a social issue. It would be fun just to follow a successful season and the development of the personalities on the team and the school/community’s growing enthusiasm as the team moves through the playdowns.

    At least The Thorpalcholics have been exposed to a game the past few days.

    Might be bad timing with the back packs just hanging there in P2. I know Neal and Rod try to be timely with their issues, but this one might be a little too close to home for those Boston folks.

    He’s being sued because they call him “Joe”? That seems a little harsh.

    If that’s what they did with “Friday Night Lights,” that show would have died an early death. By looking into the lives of the students of Milford, you have more storyline possibilities. Such stuff happens in real life, too. So, stop your griping.

    I’ll agree that a storyline involving students “just going through the season,” if for no other reason than as a change-of-pace, would be fine, but I wouldn’t want that to be the basis for EVERY storyline, or it’d get stale too quickly.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about that. Now that the surviving suspect has been caught, Boston is now in a “healing” stage. Boston’s pro-sports teams have been helpful in that.

    It’s because of the guy who slipped on the ice at the filling station. Or did you miss that?

    The story line started well before last Monday, so I have to cut Neal and Rod slack on that. Having said that, it looks like there are at least 3 sub plots going on already, and we know that they will not all be tied up nicely at the end. I’m in favor of additional smackdowns of Knox by the girls softball team.
