    Day in and day out I have no idea what’s going on with this strip since HB took over. If you’re reading this HB, I’m sorry that I don’t get your “wokeness”, but you took something I enjoyed reading for over 30 years and turned it to garbage.

    I also agree 100% with dinerman, and I’ve been reading this strip for over 50 years.

    P 4 (Gil): “… because if we buy new shoes for him, we gotta’ get them for everyone… c’mon man… use your head… we can make fun of his shoes later, when he can’t hear us…”

    P1 (Mopman’s voice from a distance): GET OFF MY SHINY FLOOR WITH THOSE JANKY SHOES! GET OFF!

    P2 Whigham throws a changeup today, dealing semi-large feet rather than big hands.

    P3 AWKWARD Tays. Remember, your a coach now, not one of the guys busting on a teammate.

    Coach Tays has been with them for a month now—came onboard February 8—and he STILL doesn’t know this is a poor kid from a broken home?

    Also reader for 50 years. Today last time I will read it. Woke stupidity and bizarre story lines have finished me. RIP real Gil Thorp

    P3- Thanks to Willie Mays Tays comment, Leo is in the tank for this game. GilPa will have to pep him up somehow. Anyone have BStatWhiz’s number on speed dial?

    “Even a burglar alarm can be outsmarted.”

    “Really? I knew a gangster who wore a pink scarf.”

    “The raccoons are hungry and I’m out of garbage.”

    “Money is tight. Maybe we can get some from the wishing well.”

    Atazhoon-heit gets suited up in the gym? Apparently, Milford’s stringent budget cuts are now impacting hot water showers. SPOILER ALERT: Loofah drills are canceled until further notice.

    P 4 (Tays): “…hey man!…since we are flush with cash from the lift-a-thon, I can hook you up with a brand new roll of duct tape!…you’re welcome….”

    I can not agree more with dinerman. I have been reading Gil Thorpe for years. I looked forward to the daily does of sports and morality and simplicity. It was a fun place to go. Now it is just a pile of today’s “issues” thrown together in a rapid fire and scattered manner. Some of the story lines don’t even seem to have a conclusion. Feel free to continue to write this version, but please rename the comic strip. This version has recasted the main characters and destroyed a reputation built up over decades. Coach Kaz had the right idea and got out.

    P2 to P3 – did Monica follow him into the locker room? Or did Scotty transport him and Tays from the gym to the locker room?

    I remember sitting at the kitchen table learning to read with my dad with Gil Thorp. This is not my Gil Thorp!

    P 1.5: “…you bet!…and while you’re at it, do my laundry, wash the dishes, clean the toilet since it hasn’t been cleaned in over two months, wash my car, vacuum the house, and clean up my dog Carrie’s business from the back yard…thanks!…”

    Ah ha! See, everyone assumed it was his mom that he put the blanket on sleeping on the couch when he came home with his game ball. Like, I said, could be his sister…and looks like it was. Now where’s my prize?

    P 2 could be a good Pluggers panel….“…you’re a plugger if you wear ratty old shoes because you think that they still look good…”

    What’s so hard about this? Here’s what we know a out Leo Atazhoon:

    Socio-economic: Native American, lives on a reservation with his sister, mother deceased, father’s status unknown, limited financial resourcesClass: Sophomore Nickname: Atazhoon-heitSkills: Mad basketball skills, poor chocolate bar salesmanHobbies: Carrying around the team basketball, listening to the news to stay up on current events in the ValleyLikes: CarrotsDislikes: HomeworkOther: Has an enabling sister that allows him to slack by doing his homework for him, for his sake, the snark-o-sphere hopes she isn’t slow

    Tune in to…awww…who knows what future strip to learn more about Leo and whether he has a significant role in a current or future plot or story arc.

    You can now return to your regular daily ranting and ravings about the current state of Gil Thorp.

    P1- “It’s whatever” is her reply to “Thanks for coming”? I don’t know all the kids lingo but I know English.

    P2- So nobody noticed those shoes until today? That makes no sense, which actually does make sense for this strip.

    P3- I think we need a whisper bubble.

    P1 – Thanks for coming. It’s whatever. Homework? What the hell does that even mean? Then jump to P2 which has no relevance to P-1 and then to P3 Oh. Ah. Vintage? Nice. Again. Meaning? HB are the meds just kicking in or just wearing off?

    P1, with Monica’s saying “It’s whatever,” would be an appropriate first panel for every day’s strip.

    What’s with this player and his sister just blatantly walking down the middle of the court in their street shoes, especially when it looks like it’s almost game time? Do I have to do Gil’s job too and instruct his players on etiquette and showing up on time for warmups? And speaking of warmups, today’s Gil Thorp is just a lame warmup for the main event, Mopped Up Thorp!

    Quit walking on Mop’s clean gym floor. Don’t you know they like a clean floor before the game.
