Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for May 31, 1998
NATE: Who are we playing today? FRANCIS: The bulldogs. NATE: YYyyes! The Bulldogs stink! They're the only team in the league with a worse record than ours! For once, when Joe's Chicken takes the field we'll be the favored team! For once, we won't have to listeb to the other team laughing at us! They'll know that we are a better team than they are! I've almost forgotten what it's like to see fear in an opponent's eyes! OS: Hey guys, look who's here! OS 2: Cluck Cluck! OS 3: It's Joe's Chicken! FRANCIS: I've completely forgotten.
