    Gil, don’t just wish for size, do something about it.

    Hmm … this could be the start of a hearing-impaired student goes out for football story. And if he uses sign language, it will give Rod ample opportunity to gratify his fondness for drawing hands.

    Was out of town and just read 28 Gils in a row to catch up. I’m left with a strange desire to whap someone over the head with a folding chair while eating a foot-long sub.

    Glad I made it back in time for football season. That yeti in the doorway looks like just what the team needs to make it to the 2nd round of playdowns before its ultimate collapse.

    In all reality, the Big Kid Gil covets was going to play football but after seeing Gil and Pop wrestle he wants to devote all of his time to becoming a pro wrestler. Will Gil have to have Pop talk the Big Kid out of a wrestling career ?

    Holy smokes Indy!, errr Gil. Size does matter. HAH! I can’t wait to peruse all the pearls and rubies that will be posted from this , ahem, material.

    Someone told me once that to have fun after cracking open a Chinese Fortune Cookie to add the phrase “In Bed” after the fortune. I tried it with this strip today and the strip actually makes more sense.

    It’s amazing how every year at some point one of the staff discovers a talented athlete in the school that nobody ever saw before. MILFord High must have 10,000 students in it.

    Mop, I like your thinking. Most schools see a kid like that in the 7th grade and they on him like white on rice.

    Hurry up Gil before Angie gets the man she needs.

    In all likelihood the kid was listening to his iPod, probably Mr Big Stuff by the late great Heavy D.

    I think you are on to this one, Chip, a deaf (“hearing impaired”) pulling guard.

    P3, Luhm, get to work on that hallway, you’ve been slacking off at Subwich this summer!
