    “When you’re done talking to Chance, I and my unsettling asymmetrical arms will be over here.”

    Panels 2 and 3. She uses his first name. He pointedly uses her last name… and deflects to a team mate… using a first name. Tons of freighted subtleties.

    Where’s Boyd (Guts) Spiller when you need a verbose team mate? Visualizing how many post-game Bucket burgers he will down?

    Gilpa is definitely developing a condition, it looked like he was gator arming the Oakwood coach during the post-game handshake, and today the same hand and arm are noticeably withered, hope nothing else vital is shriveling up

    And Gordon plays defense for Chance off the field.

    Chance exits quickly before Burns notices her watch is gone.

    P1- suffering from an atrophied right arm hasn’t dimmed the witty GilPa’s sarcastic prowess.

    P2- By batting her eyelashes, Chance goes bobbleheady. The first EES of the season cannot be far behind.

    P3- Trust. Now there’s a word Snark Nation confident thinks of when following this strip.

    How did Chance get his name? When he was born is mom turned to the three men in the room and asked, “is this your baby by any chance?”

    It’s too bad that he’s named Gordon and not Hank. That would have made for a fun mike handover.

    Maybe Chance doesn’t want the limelight because he’s afraid it will come out that he’s really 24 years old.

    Interviewer: This is of course symptomatic of a new breed of footballer as it is indeed symptomatic of your whole genre of player, is it not? Buzzard: Good evening Brian. Interviewer: What I’m getting at, Jimmy, is you seem to have discovered a new concept with a mode in which you dissected the Italian defence, last night. Buzzard: ( pauses for thought ) I hit the ball first time and there it was in the back of the net. ( smiles and looks around ) Interviewer: Do you think Jarrow will adopt a more defensive posture for the first leg of the next tie in Turkey? Buzzard: ( confidently ) I hit the ball first time and there it was in the back of the net. Interviewer: Yes, yes – but have you any plans for dealing with the free-scoring Turkish forwards? Buzzard: Well Brian… I’m opening a boutique. ( Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Literary Football Discussion)

    Is there anyone here who just enjoys the comic without the nitpicking?

    Chance uses the paraphrased post-game interview skills he learned from Crash Davis. “It’s a simple game, you run the ball; you throw the ball; you catch the ball. We gotta play ‘em one game at a time. I’m just trying to do my part and the good Lord willing, everything will work out all right.”

    Gil is so hard to quit, it takes Heather more than one panel. The snarkers could have told her that years ago.

    alternate reply in P-3: Hey, I’m a Jock! I don’t know what you just said. They give the ball. I run… or receive,…or catch pass. Here talk to Gordon, QB’s are smart.

    P1 – Gil is just giddy and flustered from his interview with someone much younger than Marjie. Nothing he has to say is quotable.

    P2 – “Well, if you did any research whatsoever, you’d know that we actually used this formation at the end of last season, so it’s really no change. It’s just that Oakwood really sucks.”

    P3 – Chance sharing the spotlight with Gordon for no reason.

    P4 – “Um, well, Chance trusts our line from any formation. What the @%^$ am I supposed to add to what he already said about himself?”

    And speaking of what the @%^$, what the @%^$ are you doing just sitting there, instead of going to read today’s Mopped Up Thorp?
