Is there no softball storyline this season? Is Milford exempt from Title IX?
Lucky’s back to hitting lefthanded. Neal should have gone all the way and made the opponent the Bryant Bears.
Either Kaz or Gil should do some coaching and tell Lucky that he’ll never get a hit swinging almost two feet above the ball.
Panel 2. Rotate home plate 180 degrees, and Lucky is closer to finding 1st base. How far passed was that ball?
What teenager in the USA would ever use the phrase “It’s a charmed life”?
Mathdog – “Charmed life” + Lucky and you’ve got “Lucky Charms.” Obviously the writers are taking kickbacks from Corporate America.
In all reality, everything in P 2 is wrong. Lucky is running towards the backstop and the catcher standing in front of the plate not looking for the passed ball. It is a charmed life for Lucky until the brakes on the bus fail.
In all reality, from the road sign in P 3 the bus Luckys on took a wrong turn and is now in Iraq. Maybe Lucky got on the wrong bus and is with Milford Natl Guardsmen lead by Sgt Rock deployed to Iraq. Good luck Lucky.
My thought, exactly. Where’s that young lawyer wannabe when he’s needed?
The catcher is casting a peacock shadow, showing the magic is still in Milford. Charmed, indeed. Or is that a praying mantis?
Apparently The Valley umpires are on strike. Or maybe just embarrassed to be associated with this plot and lurking out of panel.
A little Google search revealed there is an Omaha Bryan High School so the boys must be on a western swing as someone earlier this week identified another Omaha high school they’d been playing. Hard telling where that road sign is pointing them, but the boys could be headed into Kansas by now.
Did Milford enter a new division? Bryan? Millard North? What’s next? Ogdenville, Brockway, and North Haverbrook?
Two games in two days? It took a month to get that far into the basketball season. Watch out for those darn teenage drivers in today’s Mopped Up Thorp.
Two and oh first week of the season. Gil and Kaz should take Lucky to Milford Downs to work on his math, errr, wagering skills.
Why is there a frowny face on the undersized ball in P1?
Do the writers have any Omaha area connection? The opponents in today’s tip are “Millard North” and “Bryan high schools Bears,” both schools and teams in the Omaha area.
There is a Bryan in the northwest corner Ohio, and their team nickname is The Golden Bears. … and a Milford in southwest Ohio that has the nickname Eagles, which is a bird like a Mudlark. I think the mystery has been solived (now, where are those two precocious Thorp children ….)
2 walks & 2 strikeouts & 2 runs scored. Lucky has just moved to the top of the Padres draft board.
…anyone going to say something or should we let it go?
In all reality, I bet Bitsy Twill went to Cancun for Spring Break.
In all reality , it was Ouchie Time bigtime when I got hit by the bus in the alternative strip today.
It doesn’t save any time, but it does clutter the screen.Why tell me what the commenter said? I already read the comment.
