@Old Timer, I know you’re on here a lot. I’m trying to find an old Sunday Tank strip in which a batter does cartwheels around the bases after hitting a home run, and the next batter comes to the plate dressed like a hockey goalie. By any chance, do you know the date of the strip or happen to have it?

Rumor was the Native American translation of Bobby Cox’s name was “Loses With Talent.” If so, then the Spanish-to-English translation of Ozzie Guillen’s name is, “Loses With Talent While Also Putting His Foot in His Mouth.”
One of the RBs on the Giants, just back from a concussion, played last night with an oversized helmet. Although it wasn’t that noticeable during plays, in the huddle he kinda looked like Dark Helmet from Spaceballs.
Jeff and Bill, one of the best strips I remember ever reading. Well done.
@Alabama_Al, you’d think that people would look at the Miami Marlins’ situation and pump the brakes—hard—before building a new stadium. But the Falcons are winning (if just barely!) right now, so The Powers That Be will probably try to ramrod this through while they can.
Remember a few years ago they changed the rule concerning where one of the refs would stand during the play, and everyone said it would slow down the game because he couldn’t place the ball as quickly after each play? That same year they also changed the rule defining a catch, saying the player must “retain control of the ball all the way to the ground” (it cost Calvin Johnson and the Lions a TD because he spiked the ball too soon). I proposed the perfect solution to both problems: it’s not a catch unless the player retains control all the way to the ground, stands up, and runs it back to the line of scrimmage, placing the ball appropriately for the next play.
Blowback from people with speech impediments (is that the current PC term?) in 3….2….
Had a girlfriend in high school who had the same effect on me. I failed more than one calculus exam because of things she said to me just before I walked into class.
That would only make the strip even funnier, as the guys could do a followup where his girlfriend asks him why he fumbled all the names.
What?!? That first LSU-Alabama game last year was a defensive classic, a throwback to the good old days of smash-mouth football! <I kid, I kid! I didn’t drink the Kool-Aid, sorry ESPN>
Jeff & Bill, I think they’re funny too. The 2-week thing is tough to work around. I love the idea…and I could totally see the NFL going for this idea anyway. “Integrity of the game and safety of the players,” my a$$.
