    Sweet! Li’l Guard Duck & Snuffles both!What can LGD show Snuffles about sportsmanship? If it looks like you’re losing, get the grenade launcher?

    Either Guard Duck understands sportsmanship or he thinks a bazooka is a more appropriate weapon.Which is it?

    Aww, Mr. Snuffles, with the currently-fashionable extra-long shorts! Despite his penchant for drastic means, I think Little Guard Duck does understand “sportsmanship” (e.g., offer your prisoner a last cigarette before you shoot him). Mr. Snuffles, being of the feline persuasion, may have a different outlook….

    Guard Duck and sportmanship just don’t seem to go together. His advocating not using a weapon is strange for his character. But we see him advocating against hunting knives, will he advocate against using guns in basketball games too? Or will it be okay to use hand grenades? And seriously, what chance does the other team have against Mr Snuffles. The last time I was taught anything about the game traveling was when you took so many steps without dribbling, nothing says it’s travelling if you don’t take a step as far as I know. And Mr Snuffles is the heli-kitty, he could just fly to the basket.

    There’s a fine line between strategy and sportsmanship. It’s about as fine as… say the width of the Mississippi River – no, wait… the Rocky Mountain range.

    Another practice in basketball is called “hacking.” But, can you use a real hacksaw?

    Does it actually say in the rules that you can’t use weapons during play?

    This is why I stopped watching basket ball, when MJ became the Thing that saved the game and turned Basketball to Travelball.

    I lost interest when a player (MJ in particular) could approach the basket by dribbling backwards and bumping the defender with his butt, even knocking him down, with no penalty.
