Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for August 04, 1991
Not even close! Nate: Man! We're getting killed! Nate: It's times like this when a pitcher needs a few words of encouragement! Nate: He needs his catcher to walk out to the mound and give him some support! Pat him on the back! Psyche him up! Nate: Here comes Francis! He'll get me pumped! He'll inspire me! He'll say just the right thing! Francis: Good news, they're putting in their subs. Nate: How anticlimactic can you get?
