Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for December 12, 1998
FRANCIS: What is with you? You've turned over the ball five times! NATE: I haven't turned it over! That number twenty-two stole it! There's a difference you know! I haven't just handed him the ball! He's had to work hard! So instead of piling the blame on me, why not give some credit to him? FRANCIS: Okay. That number twenty-two is doing a great job of making you look like a buffoon! TEDDY: I also like the way he's made you miss your last ten free throws!
