    Not sure what’s funnier in P3: Tip’s response or the fact that Gil appears to have both a right arm and a right flipper.

    Tip uses Pascoe’s back as a vaulting horse and sticks the landing for the TD

    Final game of the season (I hope) against his biggest rival, final minutes of the game, and Gil turns to a guy with no experience to improvise a play. What has happened to Gil? He used to be a good coach who had his teams prepared. Now he’s visiting peacocks, putting cheerleaders in the game, wrestling senior citizens — he’s out of control.

    The hitting is fierce. Looks like a severed arm underneath #51 in P2.

    Like the Wildcat. Doyle Dane, Ransom, The Peacock and Gramps, this major accident involving Chip and Hamani will fade away. Once again, win or lose, no playdowns. However, much like The Cosby Kids, we readers take away the valuable lessons of life.

    “John Pascoe and the Troys” sounds like a Doo-Wop band from the sixties. Throw in Tip Nunn’s comedy routine and we’ve got a return to the variety shows of yesteryear. Marty Moon would be a natural for the emcee.

    I think that’s his left hand doing the pointing.

    But, I wonder why the ref didn’t call number 51 for the helmet-to-helmet hit on his own teammate in Panel 2? And, in Panel 1, Marty is talking out of his whiskers!

    Not bad…until Valley Tech comes up with the same idea and stuffs him…

    totally agree, only the Milford school district’s tenure policy keeps him around…..I heard Dr. Pearl is starting a discreet national search for a new AD.

    Speaking of pearl, Marty has the pearl onion from his Gibson stuck on his headset again!

    It’s only 3rd down. He’ll get another chance.

    In all reality, after Tips remark to Gil , Gil loses it and has a breakdown and is lead away to the Merry Milford Mental Institution sobbing I used to be a respected coach. With the team in disaray, Big John in a booming voice says Alright Men Huddle Up Victory Is Ours.

    It’s a wonder Gil can keep his balance on those tiny feet.
