For help on how to follow a comic title,
Naw what I meant to say was there were good players playing in that game that had not played organized sports. They should have. Some of them were really better than a lot of us that did. We had a very old fashioned coach. His stand against what he called ‘long hair’ kept a lot of guys from playing. His definition of short hair was Marine boot camp length! If you could comb it then it was too long.
Mostly from 18 or 19 to about 30 on both sides.
And after the awfully windy day we had on the beach Wednesday….. a sand collector too!
Back ‘in the day’ there used to be football game called the ‘Turkey Bowl’ that took place in out little home town. It was between the older (early 20’s then was old!) former players and good sandlot players from our town. It was the Black kids vs. the White kids! It was held on Thanksgiving morning on the old HS field where we’d all played. Nobody ever asked for or got permission to use the field either. And no one ever came and ran anyone off either! (side bar – this one crazy dude on the ‘white’ team used to dislocate his collar bone every year! but the idiot kept right on coming back!)
And for the record….. WE ALL GOT ALONG THEN AND STILL DO!
Chip got ticked off at someone and he just stopped cold.
He went by “Wilbur something” at first but I forget what the second name was that he used then. Seems like it may have been Floppenheimer like you said. Anyhow he got gone for a while and then he slipped back in as someone else. I picked up it was him and actually asked and he said it was. He said they’d kicked him off GoComics for something. I can’t remember at all now what that second moniker was he went by but it looks like they must have caught him again and banned him again.
And his friend looks a little like Roscoe from ‘PICKLES’.
By the clever cartoon work of Mr. B of course
The last four or five years I worked that was the only kind of shirt I wore from March to about the middle of November. I still have about 40 of them hanging in my closet.
So not all the news is bad.
