    Omari shows just how much in control he is by breaking into dance and flexing his trapezius muscle.

    How about the other Troy? Why isn’t he doing his part?

    I’ve heard “footballer” as a British term for a soccer player, but never the way Marty’s using it. Perhaps he’s speaking with a British accent, too, in an effort to sound cultivated.

    I had the same reaction to “footballer”. Would Marty do this with anyone who plays another sport?
    It probably means the basketball team is so shorthanded they have to use someone who isn’t good enough to be on the regular squad.
    Did he lead off by telling his audience why two key players are missing? The bookies want to know that stuff.

    In panel 3 it appears The Incredible Hulk has joined the team.

    And where did Marty get that jar of lightning bugs? It’s winter, for Pete’s sake

    Those are bubbles from the soda water Marty added, hoping to fool people into thinking it’s all soft drink. But we know better.

    I’m just curious as to why they are playing on an 8 foot rim.

    Boy, that “Muggers” designation was truly fitting for those Central guys. That player in P2 is about to pull a quarter out of the Milford player’s ear.

    I can’t tell if the ref is a St. Fabian graduate rocking “The Monk” hairstyle or if he’s just middle-aged.

    Another disappointing season??!! How much can we take? At least we have these comments & Omari’s dance to keep us amused.

    Why don’t you try telling us the score?

    Maybe Omari also plays on the soccer team—you know, the one team around here that actually wins.

    OK, Gil waits until 2 starters are suspended for fighting "in the Hall!!?!! and then comes up with that coaching gem. I think I need to “stay in control”.

    Pappaw57: That is Marty’s infamous sippycup, housing some of Moonshiner Tim Smith’s Climax Moonshine. P3- Omari’s favorite band is Styx since he’s doing Mr. Roboto. Secret, secret! Gil’s got a secret!
