    “But be proud, too. Except you, Knox. You blew the court case, and now you cost us the Valley title. There are no words to describe how you’ve disappointed everyone who was depending on you. By humiliating you in public, I’m doing you a favor. This is how the real world works.”

    In the interest of realism (ooo, that would be refreshing) let’s carry this through the inevitable locker room excoriation and parking lot beating that Knox gets.

    For that matter, why did Gil not exercise the Star Trek protocol and remove the obviously “emotionally compromised” player from the field? Was this actually part of a larger plan to teach Knox a lesson by sacrificing the championship?

    Or a set-up for the parking lot beating?

    What about the girls? Did Mimi forfeit the rest of their games after Darby slipped on the upended Gummy-vite display? (OK, I don’t really care, but I think Title IX requires that at least one of us feigns interest.)

    Oh thank God: this lame story line is finally finished. To this comic strip’s credit, it doesn’t usually stray into outright fantasy, but a scenario where a law firm anywhere above “Vinnie’s Mall Lawyers-R-Us” who genuinely gives any duties to a high school student whatsoever (beyond emptying out the trash or cleaning out the restrooms) is freaking farcical.

    What a waste! Again, I call for a season of NO side line stories and instead give us readers a sport season devoted totally to the sport!!! No lawyer crap, meddling fathers, no teen pregnancy or drunken parties! No dead siblings, or mentally challenged team mangers, no bullies, or tattoo parlors, no dead beat dads, or no diseases!

    You mean to tell me a dominant hurler like BB Stuff got touched up for 4 runs? I agree the storyline droned on. However, the court scene was priceless showing I crapped my pants look by Jim Rome. Noww…MCC for Gil, fun for Kaz and girlfriend Kelly Kawpowski, Milford Downs for Moonpie and Pedro at poolside for Mimi.

    Those are some sad faces in the dugout. Looks like Gil showed up just as the game ended to gloat in another failure. Despite losing the league, shouldn’t they still be happy, after all they tied the highly coveted all-time double-plays turned by a SS-2B combo!

    Now on to wrap up the softball season. Wait, what do you mean it already was wrapped up?

    Yes, but in Gil-Land you only get to participate in the playoffs if you win your league.

    This story line was pretty lame, but not as lame as the last story based on peacocks. So, in one sense, the strip is getting better.
