    The author presumably got the idea from this article: google “United World Wrestling Bans Teen Wrestler From Competing in Full-Coverage Uniform & Hijab”. (It won’t let me leave the http address.)

    The UUW, er, UWW, does exist, but it seems to regulate club wrestling, not scholastic. What wrestlers wear in scholastic matches would presumably be decided by the state HS association. (It would seem that wrestling is yet another sport that the author doesn’t know much about.)

    Did the author create a whole Milford girls wrestling team — never seen in any previous comic — just to gin up this hijab controversy, and thus shame all of his readers about what awful racists they are? Yikes.

    Ah, Corina Karenna…or as I called her, “Awful Girl™”, possibly the most annoying character in GT history. (At least until the current author took over; now every character is annoying.)

    Pretty much the only way to save this strip is to fire the author, then do a hard re-boot, Bobby Ewing-style.

    And the 4th time in the last 8 years, by my count. (We really haven’t seen a “full” girls basketball season since 2004-05, the Hadley V. Baxendale team that went 23-2 and lost in the state quarterfinals on a miracle last-second shot by Council Rock.)

    Don’t try to understand it. Just lie in a quiet room and think pleasant thoughts.

    If Keri’s playing footsie, I sure hope it’s not Jami! (Then again, incest is one of the few things this strip hasn’t tried…)

    In the original strip, Gil was born circa 1930, having taken the Milford job in 1958, so no WW2 for him. (It’s possible he could’ve flown/fought in Korea, but I don’t think it was ever mentioned.)

    I’m so old, I remember when the only characters in this strip who talked were human!

    “My wife is sleeping with another woman, my daughter is pregnant and my author has absolutely no idea what he’s doing. It’s hard out there for a Thorp.”

    Marty calling the VT games isn’t so strange when you consider that Valley Tech actually tried to hire Marty as their coach/AD back in 2000!
