    P3 last appearance April 4th for those repeat hunters. Moon’s got his sippy cup filled with Chaldean wine, he’s sloshed!

    I am calling it right now—-Milford will lose the game and no chance at the play downs. The manner of how they lose is questionable, but don’t be surprised if the vaunted double play duo commit an error that leads to the winning run.

    Prediction for tomorrow – the world famous almost record-setting double play combination blows a game ending DP and it costs them the game and the title.

    Looks like we were typing the same prediction at the same time!

    Seems like all the characters are making cameos before the “June Swoon.” I’m going out on a limb and predicting that The ’Larks will win this one with a fantastic finish. Moonpie sure looks happy with those Pete Townsend “Chinese Eyes.”

    I love the thumbs up sign the catcher appears to be giving the pitcher. Kind of his way of saying, “Way to go, man. Looks like you’re the coaches new shower toy after that little slap on the rump.”

    But who screws up the DP, Knox?

    Does Hamani Gaines play for Milford’s American Legion team in the summer months?

    @ desertdwlr and @ Gilfan79:

    Regarding the “pat on the rear”:

    Haven’t either of you watched baseball on television, or attended a game? Every time a manager comes out to take a pitcher out of the game, he gives him a pat on the behind. So, seeing it here is nothing unusual. You two trying to turn it into something perverted makes me wonder about your minds.

    That could result in another Judge Gil episode to determine cause. I’ll bet Knox will present a better case than jimmy.

    Thanks, fellow OCD Thorpian, for saving me the trouble of searching. Notice how Whigham cleverly crops the right side of the panel to accommodate the smaller dialog bubble without having to redraw anything. Saves him time so he can take art school classes like “How to Draw Oversized Hands” and “Shrunken Heads 101”

    P3 – Since this is such a big game, it appears that Moon is doing television (considering his pose) and is being simulcast on WDIG . . . he’s hit the big tme folks!

    But alas, Moon will get the director fired for having his flask in full camera shot. Marty on the other hand, will be disciplined (suspended) and sent to rehab for the ump-teenth time.

    The Mudlarks will move on to a state title, and Moonpie will be stuck listening to another “fill-in” PBP announce call it for MILFord while in the Betty Ford clinic.

    Once he checks out of rehab, Marty will go on a killing spree during the MILFord state title parade only to be subduded by Gil and Coach Kaz . . . teaching everybody here a valuable lesson, and that is . . . don’t be like Marty Moon and hit the big time!

    I think the problem is that the player in the background of P2 is using an oven mitt instead of a glove.

    I forget. This being high school, are the games seven or nine innings and are they using aluminum bats? Bruce Wayne’s Batarangs were initially made of aluminum. If you’ve ever been to Cooperstown, modern oven mitts are superior to some of the late 19th and early 20th century gloves.

    Saves him time so he can take art school classes like “How to Draw Oversized Hands”…

    Isn’t that the class taught by (thankfully) former “Dick Tracy” artist Dick Locher?
