The light bulb just went on…it will come down to an important point (hopefully somebody explained to Steenz that it’s impossible for both teams to have match point on the same point), and Jackie is shown about to spike the ball at the net with Sky poised to block it…and that’s when the lights go out
There could be an “impending disaster,” but a number of us think the most likely result is a power outage that results in the match ending without having to have either Kat or Charlotte having “the winning mom”
What – no actual shots of either mom spiking or blocking? And wasn’t Kat’s last name revealed earlier in the storyline – so why is she being called “Mrs. Kat’s Mom”? At least with the musical, there was one panel of somebody actually performing (as opposed to just a reaction shot of Addy in the audience).
What, they couldn’t get enough parents to play more than three-on-three, with what is either a ten-foot-high net (have fun trying to block/spike over one of those) or one that goes down to about a foot off the ground, there’s no referee’s platform (where is he in the first panel, anyway), and there aren’t even lines on the court?
My guess: the expected (choose one: power failure; something – say, a tree – smashing through the windows, which would have the added bonus of, “Well, we didn’t make enough money for a new lunch room AND to replace the windows”) will happen with the score tied in the final set, and the last panel in the last strip of the storyline will probably be both Kat and Charlotte thinking to themselves, “My mom would have won”
Wait, don’t tell me, let me guess: power failure, “tournament” canceled, but since it’s for charity, there will be no refunds and nobody will mind – well, either that, or there will be a riot, they’ll refund all of the money anyway, and I guess the school didn’t need a new lunch room that badly after all
What happened to her new teacher? I probably asked the same thing in 2017…
Actually, I replied to someone else’s comment about it – and it was on November 12, but I can’t post a link to it
That’s what they told Ernie…just before his strip was renamed The Piranha Club
I seem to recall that the last time she needed the truck repaired, she, er, “came to an agreement” with the mechanic, and the time before that was when Agnes sold her $10,000 guitar. What a Coindicence – the previous two strips dealt with Agnes and her “new” guitar; I wonder how much this one is worth?
If you want to get pedantic, #2 is a scammer, not a telemarketer. I – will you excuse me; my phone is ringing…hello? You work for Amazon, and you say there’s a charge for an iPhone 15? You want me to go to some website to fill in the “refund form”? I have a better idea – you work for Amazon, right? How about you log into Amazon, buy Amazon gift cards equal to the difference – I have already paid for them with my fradulent credit card charge – and tell me the numbers? Hello? Hello?
What odds can I get on, “If Steenz does reveal a winner of this thing, it’s neither Red nor Blue”?
