    Hope Pop Herkelshimer doesn’t take that last remark as a challenge, or even worse, an insult.

    Eddie seems to have done an Anikin Skywalker trick there – all saccrine goobishness one panel then turning to the dark side in the next. Poppa Doc looks like all he needs is some orange hair and a red nose and he’d be Bozo.

    Anybody remember Eddie Grant and/or his brother? The name rings a bell but…

    According to this article, Eddie Grant was benched for bad grades and his twin brother Steve had to step in at quarterback. Problem is, they were in the class of 1962. Eddie looks remarkably well-preserved. But kudos to Neal for bringing back real characters from Gil’s past.

    Hmmm, Some subliminal advertising here between the pricing and the hand gestures makes me want to go to a sandwich chain for a five dollar foot long.

    Please, let’s leave this line and pick up Molly Kinsella as a surprise member of the ESPN Magazine Body Issue.Turns out Molly is both a former Vanderbilt soccer player and a party girl, although her major would suggest a future doctor. Thanks for yesterday’s research, Leblumax.

    Based on Eddie’s excessive P3 ire, the Subwich girl must be his daughter…or maybe his mentally challenged younger sister.

    If it isn’t asking too much, would you please refrain from using the term “Poppa Doc”? Some people have memories that are still too fresh of the Haitian horrors that happened during Duvalier’s reign of terror there. (I only read about them, I didn’t experience them. I’m merely speaking on behalf of those who had to live it.)

    How can a fictional character be real?

    I had already planned to go to Subway before getting on the computer this morning.

    Maybe I’m wrong — someone will correct me if that’s the case — but I think you’re the only one not liking this story, so far.

    Why do I think that this dementia arc is just beginning, like the Marfans segment of years ago.

    Aww, poor old Neil Cray. Great, way to ruin my Saturday.
