Heh, wonder if Marty’s going to backpedal fast from any involvement in the upcoming slander suit … That, and these days, school superintendents have fired personnel for less provocative statements in media interviews.
I can confirm.
WOW — This guy has quickly become the Darth Vader of Milford. For my money Barajas is doing our strip proud.
He seems more likely to say he’s faithful to the little woman.
I’ll go out on a limb here and bet there has never been a HS wrestling state champ who has gone on to play basketball in college at a PAC 12 school.
Flirting = unfaithful to wife? Sorry, the leap of logic there is seeing a loose screw laying in the street and saying it proves a Russian satellite dropped it. I’m hoping Marty’s expression is, “This guy can’t be that stupid!” rather than, “Whoa, absolute proof!”
P1 Both Marty Moon and Big Hand Luke Martinez…or Hernandez…or whatever Marty is calling him, slam back their first cans to begin today’s installment of “Hoo’s Talking!”
This guy is all previous villains wrapped into one, on steroids.
A forty year old man wearing all of his high school championship and college MVP rings? For any reason in public? Really?
P3 Pop goes Marty’s right eye with EES, tell him more Big Hand, make his left eye explode and truly make him a blind drunk!
I’m all for the change but let’s make it semi believable…this is getting absurd…
One of the most successful High School football coaches in our area, who can wear gold on every finger and a toe or two, is retiring after forty years at the end of this season. There are few if any who could or would speak badly of him, I can’t imagine any coach, much less anyone in the media, giving an a-hole like this one minute of airtime to spout this kind of venom toward a respected coach, real or imagined, without ever having coached a game.
One thing remains constant from former to current writer. Like a huge flounder, Marty swallows the hook and will run with heresy.
So he’s a champion in two winter sports – wrestling and basketball? That doesn’t seem implausible at all. [/s]
Even Marty Moon couldn’t possibly sink this low. I hope he kicks him out and bans him from the show.
He’s ‘faithful to his wife’ because she’s the only woman on the planet who was ever romantically interested in him
And yesterday we thought those were tats on his fingers….
And just like that, Big Hand Luke moves to the top of Mopman’s leaderboard for the March Madness Most Obnoxious Thorp Villian bracket.
Oh, no! He flirted with a bartender! Get the divorce papers ready! Mimi will take the house, the kids, everything!
(And without all those distractions, Gil can focus totally on coaching, and Milford will run the table.)
Did he coach to get those rings, or are they his high school glory rings?
Do high school state champions actually get rings? It’s usually just a medal. More nitpicking! And speaking of more, I know you want more Mopped Up Thorp, so here it is!
This guy reminds me of a character on twitter (@3YearLetterman) with all those championship rings, I bet he has difficulty turning door knobs.
High school football and state wrestling champ? Possible, but changing sports and getting the PAC 12 Basketball MVP? Not likely. And since when do you get rings for HS Sports?
Seriously, Henry? THIS is your story? You’re going to have this goateed neanderthal drag my family’s name thru the mud over the airwaves? While I sit in suspended animation in the back of a minivan reeking of pre-pubescent boy and middle-aged angst? Expect a call from my agent!
This is a train wreck
This is not your father’s Gil Thorp
How exactly do this clown’s rings show that “Thorp has gone soft”?
This guy is reminding me of Brutus (sometimes Bluto) on Popeye. I can see him grabbing Mimi and saying, “How’s about a little kiss?”
Well it would appear yet another old reliable strip’s new writer is trying hard to destroy what they were given.
meanwhile, back to sports
If Gil has gone soft, maybe THAT is the reason Mimi left him.
First of all Wrestling and Basketball are competed at the same time. Most states have a limit on what High School Athletes can compete in, one sport per season
If a guy is Pac -12 MVP I can guarantee you he did not wrestle.
P2: See this hand? El Producto, Muriel, Garcia y Vega!
P2: And no, I can’t see it….your speech bubble is in the way.
Lawyers… start your engines!
