Gil finally paying attention to what is going on with his team. Hamm almost got smoked. Gil should help him find a cure now if he’s worth his salt.
Kudo’s to all the alert snarkers who called the New Thayer P3 batter switch-a-roo yesterday, if you put money on the call, see Mr. Vito to collect your winnings
P1 Gregggg Hammmm’s failure to react, much less look or blink at the liner that whizzed past his ear causes Gilpa to realize something aint right with that boy
P2 “What, you mean loofah drills here? Right now coach?”
P3 Gilpa’s messianic hand pose portends the miracle he is about to perform restoring sight to the obviously (obvious to everyone but any adult in Milford) blind Gregggg
P3: Love that cigar store Indian pose.
It took Gil this long to buy a vowel? Does he even watch practice or just sit in his office drinking a liquid whose identity remains unknown from a coffee mug?
Panel 4: Gil walks out to the mound with a giant eye chart.
P4- I’ll raise you Neal Cray Fan. In addition to the eye chart, GilPa walks to the mound with a support animal, the umpire’s seeing eye dog.
Almost another Herb Score incident
P 1.5 thought balloon: “… what was that?…”
P3: Currently 8:44am Eastern.
Greg should just get one of those face guards that the girl’s softball pitchers wear
“Get warm. In fact, get hot!” The chorus to Madonna’s next big hit.
A few inches to the right and this plot solves itself.
So, after 6 weeks + of “coaching” the Gilfather finally wakes up and notices there may be a problem with the Hammmmster’s vision. It’s not for nothing they call him State Champ Coach Thorp. And does benchwarmer Van the Man Morrison look suspiciously like another Thorp progeny? Coincidence" I think not. Finally, I won’t even take a swing at the “get hot” softball R&W lobbed up this morning.
Greg’s father comes out of hiding and confronts Gil. Hilarity ensues,
That line drive tears off Greggg’s ear as it whizzes past. Now he’s deaf and blind on that side!
Morrison reminds me of Boomhauer.
P 2: “…yes…uh…coach?…is that right?…”
In all reality , after throwing one pitch to a batter Van Morrison calls time clutching his arm and tells Gil ,sorry Coach I just blew my arm out !
Is this where we crossover with todays ‘Frank & Earnest’ Comic??
“Gregg, there’s no place in baseball for a blind pitcher. However, you can still be an umpire!”
Just as I predicted, except without the head trauma!
“Morrison! Get warm. In fact, get hot! Light my fire!”
How does he catch the throws back from the catcher? This is just plain dumb
Prediction: Mr. Hamm is in hiding because he was caught on video stealing glasses for Gregg from the Lions Club bin.
Donald and Daffy. I have yet to see a Duck blind.
HOW THE HELL COULD THIS KID SURVIVE IF HE CAN’T EVEN SEE THE BALL COMING AT HIM? HOW THE HELL COULD HE EVEN REMOTELY PITCH?
I’m just surprised that I’m the first person to notice this flaw in the plot.
As I said, must check for macular degeneration/
P2- Morrison! Yes, coach? Did you get hair plugs? Yes, at the Tattoo and Hair Plug Palace in Central City..
P 2.5: “… uh like why, man?…”
What is Gil pointing at him, a laser? Looks like he cut a hole in the dugout fence with it. And speaking holes, the plots in Mopped Up Thorp have almost as many holes as the real thing.
