Stay the course

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
I mean, look, sure the wins and losses, the ERA, the OBP, pretty much everything isn't where we wanted it to be.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
But you've got to give Bobby Valentine an "incomplete." He just needs a few more years to turn things around.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
And you've got to consider how much worse it would be if not for Bobby V's brilliance.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Brass tacks: He inherited a mess, the worst collapse since the 20s.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
No manager, no manager — not Casey Stengal not Connie Mack, no one, could have repaired all the damage he found in just one year.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
But he has laid the foundation for a new, modern, successful club, of shared prosperity, and if you renew Valentine's contract you will feel it. You will feel it.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Look, are we all better off because Bobby Valentine fought for comprehensive clubhouse reform like banning beer? You bet we are.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
You know what I love? I love that we can trust Bobby to do what he says he is going to do, even when it is hard, especially when it's hard.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Bobby reminds me that we are playing a long game here, and that change is hard, and change is slow and never happens all at once, but eventually we get there, we always do.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
And if you don't agree with me, well, then you're a racist and a Nazi.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
And you hate women.

 

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
I'm looking at you, Ted.

Great stuff. There is a typo, Change is slow, not low.

Thanks, David. Typo fixed.

Brilliant h.b.!

And in Los Angeles, Beckett is chanting, "Four more beers!"

Someone actually watches the conventions?

Today's strip proves that Godwin's Law is always true.

Jeez, I never took you for a Romney acolyte. That's almost as disappointing as the Sox.

Looks like somebody is confusing HB for his characters again.

Nice one Bob, "Four more beers".

And a cardboard pot full of chicken for everyone!

Romney acolyte? Don't you mean Valentine acolyte?


Let me be clear: I love Bobby!


The onions headlines today are cant miss, and relevant to todays strip. Funny stuff.

God I hate Valentine.

Yeah, the Kenmore Square Popeyes just hasn't been the happening place it was last year.
Obama slams Bush 43, and acts as though he had to dig this country out of an 0-3 hole in a seven game series. You didn't build it! Bobby and Baracq both blame far better men than themselves to buy time on their jobs.
Romney is a distant, cold jerk, like a certain pitcher of note. Rumors of his human side persist, though.
Laser Show is in it for Laser Show.He'd hit .275, play gold glove quailty 2B and BS the media for any manager.

I can't understand the Obama hate. He is a true Javanese success story.

O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
Your act is so damn smarmy;
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
Joined Larry’s hapless army;
Beckett’s gone, you can’t blame him,
The Red Sox season is so grim.
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
I want to swallow poison!


O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me;
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
The answer ain’t John Lackey;
How often have the Sox sucked balls
If on the road or Fenway’s halls?
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me.


O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
The Red Sox have no pride!
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
Your son stillneeds a ride!
World Series rings a memory!
A smallish beer for 8.50
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
How sadly comes September!


O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
You sit there, so disarming!
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
You bike to work each morning!
This team lacks heart, not gay and bright,
But Fenway will sell out tonight.
O Bobby Vee! O Bobby Vee!
Can’t you just go now?

sorry for the double post.


as relates to the theme of today's creepy strip, the analogy would be more apt if we knew that Slappy White and Jack LaLane were the alternatives to Bobby Vee.

Nevertheless, wonderful take, hb.


lc

No way to follow that, lc. Well done. And great strip today, hb. Yes Veet Can???

"...unless I give you the group with the smug chick talking. .."


Well done, well played. H.b., the Bill Clinton of our creepy convention, conducts our orchestra with the subtle movements of a 3# hammer. None better at it either.

h.b. For what it's worth, take Monday off.
I did not get the job working for the Jeter babe. Just as well, as I'd be staring at her tits, and ignoring her otherwise. About what Teddy Ballgame did the last decade of his career, Yaz for the bulk of his days playing heah, and what Laser Show is doing now.

BRILLIANT hb!

It's 4:25 and yet it feels so late. Partly because my summer hours are now a thing of the past. And partly because 4:20 was five minutes ago.


Have a great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Monday.

Excellent strip h.b.!, Me, I'm hoping for a change...

what if the Red Sox management were polling fans, saying they'd narrowed down next year's management candidates to either Bobby "It was broken when I got here" Valentine, or the ghost of George "I love firing players" Steinbrenner?


*sigh* that wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. There's too much politics in the news these days anyway.

Wow - slam women and Democrats all in the same strip. Guess I know your party affiliation.

@sdu aoife odonovan (crooked still) kicked ass today. We need to get together @stray birds

My party affiliation is "420".


And nobody likes a bogart, Jeni. Mmmkay?


Send the next kid up....
