    Today will bring tons of mustache comments. I’m no artist, but there must be a better way to present shading than this. Otherwise, the women in all the other comics would have the mustache look, and Gil Thorp is the only one I know of.

    Easy to get crushed on a guy… until he starts talking.

    How can you be funny and never speak? Physical comedy I guess. Angie, please do something about the one really long bang of facial demarcation in the middle. your stylist missed one.

    P- I’m expecting Dollar Shave Club to drop some ad bucks soon in this strip, P2- Why is Angie stroking Cyndy’s chin? P3- BBJ’s right arm looks bionic compared to the left arm.

    In P3 I was thinking that was R2D2 on the sidelines, but I guess it’s just a Gatorade cooler. And with the way he’s been coaching the past five years, there hasn’t been any need to dump one of those on Gil.

    On one of the “Batman” episodes featuring The Penguin (the premise was that the cagey bird had opened up a restaurant to use as a front for a forgery scheme), Stanley Ralph Ross, who was one of the series’ writers, appeared at the end as Ballpoint Baxter. Penguin’s plan was to get handwriting samples from his customers, then get arrested so that he could meet up with Ballpoint in prison, and B.B. could forge their names on blank checks. But Bruce Wayne foiled the plot in the end by having Baxter paroled to teach penmanship at one of Wayne’s schools.

    I mention this because of how it came to be that Ross got the role. He had insisted to the producers that he could be funny, and they said, Okay, we’ll put you on the show. But, let’s see if you can be funny with no lines." (As Bruce walks him toward the exit, you can see Ross stumble on the steps.)

    MHS leads the world in kids joining the team at midseason and quickly “starting.” Other Valley coaches must be suspicious.

    I guess The Count has never heard of Buster Keaton.

    Strange. You all must be seeing today’s thrilling adventure but I can’t see it. I wonder why?

    Doesn’t putting Pascoe in at right guard displace one of the “Troys”? I seem to recall as we lurched into this story line that the Troy’s appeared to be the potential feature until Rubin veered into the mute angle.

    P3- who stole Pascoe’s number off the jersey or is it Gil’s way of punishing him until he utters a syllable?
