    Yep, the NBA All-Star’s sure up for backyard advice from the pudgy middle-aged duffer.

    P1, Just not with whom you belong.

    Nice that Ol’ Ed changed out of those ugly yellow shorts from yesterday. Now, about that shirt. . .

    P2, Nope, not gonna say it.

    P3, Now why is Ed trying to pick Jaquan’s nose?

    P4- Easy Ed: Let me show you my two handed chest pass. And my high top Black Chucks. My team used to run this 23 skiddo play that was the bees knees…..

    C’mon Ed, thanks to analytics, mid-range jumpers are a thing of the past.

    In Sicily, the two black handed pass was prevalent.

    Have we ever had a hand drawing like panel 3. Is that hair or ants?

    I still don’t understand the lesson Ed supposedly learned from Hadley’s bogus defense of Tiki.

    Hey, good old Thing, a semi-regular character who returns today in P3, is now branching out to other strips!

    They better not start a new story on Monday. As I keep saying, the moral of this so far has been it’s okay to cheat to get what you want? And, again, Hadley KNOWS that they were gaming the system based on his host family’s comment, yet she still pursued this and won. This has been the worst story so far, at least as to the outcome.

    And speaking of outcomes, I’m hoping you will all come out and read today’s installment of Mopped Up Thorp: https://moppedupthorp.wordpress.com/

    Hadley proposed that an elderly female teachers’ absence posed no threat to Tikis’ education: essentially, No Marm, No Foul.

    Dad will get his wish. Hadley will get tired of 100 hour work weeks. Hadley will get STD from Jaquan’s road trip activity and later a $20M divorce settlement and move back to Milford. Gil will get to raid other schools of talent as the school boards cave in to Hadley’s constant badgering.

    The last several years I was working I knew I had one foot out the door and was ready to hang it up any time they really ticked me off. I started wearing Hawaiian shirts from March to November every year. Actually had one kind of like what the old man has on in this segment.

    Come on guys, get in tune with analytically based basketball. The mid-range jump shot is the least efficient shot in basketball. He needs to be a 3 and D small forward or a stretch 4.

    Ha ha ha! Laugh track. And Brady Bunch outro being played. Fade to dark. That’s a take! Good job everyone! Martinis at Gils!

    P3 reminds me of the scene in Airplane with pilot Kareem Abdul-Jabaar: “You go runnin’ up and down the court with Walton all day and see how you do!” And get that finger out of my face before I slap it away!

    For those who missed the joke, Hadley v Baxendale is an old common law legal case which is taught to all 1st year law students.
