    Marty’s the ring announcer? But Gil can’t stand him!

    The 3rd panel on Saturday’s strip will simply be a balloon with the words “IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?”

    And we will have to wait till Monday to find out who needs the Doctor.

    Looks like doughnut time to me.

    Sympathy for the old guy and feeling he owes one to Harry, Gil lets Herk win. Unfortunately, somewhat continuing the Vern Gagne parallel, Herk overdoes it with the sleeper hold, and puts Gil into a coma.With football season about to begin, Milford ignores the budget constraints and quickly calls the legendary Chip Hilton out of retirement. Chip assumes all of Gil’s duties, and brings H. Mop Travel in as football assistant and head wrestling coach. Milford is destined to garner state titles in all four sports this year.Stunningly bypassed for the wrestling and baseball gigs, W.Guy (that’s me), purchases WDIG, renames it WVOV (voice of the valley), fires Marty Moon and recruits his cousin S. Guy as color man.

    Wrestling in packed MHS gym, check. Leisure suit Marty announcing, check check. Scantily clad valets or ring girls Molly and Glory?

    I think Neal and Rod need to hire Wiseguy as the story plotter.

    This could be trouble. They scripted out the match but pops can’t even remember if he had lunch or not.

    Go time? I thought this was a wrestling match, but they’re going to play Go?

    I would be happy to step in for Gil, but my old coach, Hank Rockwell (the Rock) would be a better choice.

    Good job. I can’t see it, though — Gil wouldn’t want Marty there, and Marty wouldn’t want to do Gil any favors.

    @Have Mop Will Travel

    Excellent point

    Or this … Herk has a coronary, Gil is fired for coming up with the idea (never mind pocketing the proceeds) and arrested, Mimi feigns disappointment in the no-conjugal-visit rule, interim head coach Steve Boone leads the ’Larks to a 2-8 season and is promptly hired by the Oakland Raiders … and we see about five strips of gridiron action
