    Oops. Should have said “not bald spots.” Or was I just giving you fodder to come after me? Rod Whigham, er, make that HooDad.

    I’m all for giving Whigham grief over his artwork, but only when he deserves it. I’ve said this before but, the “tonsure” comments are just wrong. If you look at the strip in color — http://www.seattlepi.com/comics-and-games/fun/Gil_Thorp/ — you’ll see that those are bald spots, but blue spots, much like Superman’s hair was black with blue in it. Now, if you want to nail Whigham for giving so many “blue jobs,” have at it. These guys give us enough fodder for our jokes, without our making stuff up. That’s Luhm’s job.

    Gil w/6 fingers on his right hand and saying he’s not been at many practices. Kaz stroking the trophy and saying “good wierd.” Crazy hand positions all the way around. It’s either a last day of Chanukah gift to the Go Comics commenters or a Festivus miracle.

    Ok, it’s mid-December and no one is wearing a coat outside the bucket? I thought maybe it was inside, but there are stars in P1 and what is obviously the outside sign. Hey, is that sign new?

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. You don’t have to run up the middle to play smashmouth.

    Ernie didn’t encounter many inferior teams, given that the Cubs stunk during most of his career.

    The artwork in P2 is worse than usual. If you didn’t know which strip this was, you wouldn’t know it was Gil. It seems that the quality of the drawing is inversely proportional to the number of characters in a panel.

    There’s no such thing as too many Hoos. Also, I get that Rubin is going for alliteration, but who says “pals” in real life?

    Actually, the Larks are wearing red jerseys with black letters and numbers, white pants with black stripes, and red helmets with black letters and stripes. Check out the color version of the strip: http://www.seattlepi.com/comics-and-games/fun/Gil_Thorp/

    Say it ain’t so, Mop Man. I’m actually jealous of how funny you are.
