    For God’s sakes, Pig, don’t say anything about the players.

    I said it last year and I’ll say it again this year.

    Watching basketball is so painful snakes close their eyes.

    Pig’s commentary will be more interesting than anything going on on the court.

    if baseball, Pig’d say the ball and bases are white, the bats are either silver (metal) or brown (wooden), the diamond is brown, the outfield is green… need I go on?

    Hope Pig doesn’t have to describe “The Colour Out of Space”

    Rat is right. It WILL be a long game. But that will have nothing to do with Pig’s announcing skills.

    I just heard on my local “all sports” station that in response to “controversial” baskets, and “blind” referees, the N.B.A. is introducing two new rules to become effective Saturday, April 14, 2018; to wit:


    1. All  baskets, including free throws, shall be reviewed in real time by a committee of five people expert in the rules and practice of professional basketball, chosen the Commissioner, to ensure that the baskets were legally made within the rules and regulations of the National Basketball Association.

    2. The coach of either actively playing team may refer two challenges per quarter to the committee of a “personal foul” charge called against one of the coach’s players.

    If successful, the challenging team is to be awarded 3 points.

    If unsuccessful, two (and only two) points shall be deducted from the challenging team’s score.


    The committee shall be based in New York City, New York, and shall make use of cameras placed around the court in question by the National Basketball Association.

    I find Pig’s commentary quite refreshing compared to some I’ve heard lately.

    Still better than Dick Vitale. I have to mute any game with him talking.

    This isn’t working out, so they’ll make him the public address announcer: “The address of the stadium is 123 Pine Street. The address of the stadium is 123 Pine Street. The address of the stadium is…”

    Thought I finally saw a flat screen TV in a recent strip, but here is the ancient console. Must have been out to replace the cathode ray tube.

    Wait, Goat said “Oh, he will be great”, about Pig? (Doing anything.) I thought Goat was supposed to be the smart one. Pig might make a pretty good BLT….

    Orange you tired of this? Azure I am. It makes me blue. I am not red-y to go black to reading this over and over again. I am one of the purple who is red-y to yellow down at Stephan for being repetitive. Color me unimpressed.
