Jack: Go long for a pass. Mondo: There's a fence in the way. Jack: Break toward the street before you get to the fence. Mondo: So, I can crash into the fence, or run out into the traffic. This is why always want to be quarterback.
Speaking of Mondo, quick story: I once did a Sunday strip where Mondo fantasized he was Zorro. He did this while killing time on a pommel horse as he waited for his sister to finish her gymnastics class. His mother, at one point, said, “Armando! Get down from there.” Zorro fans went nuts. Apparently, Guy Williams, who played Zorro in the 1950’s TV series, was actually named Armand Castalano. The fans thought it was an insider reference.
