Week 7: Endeereing Sport


Category: Read this Comic


Back during my first attempt at undergraduate work, I skipped class a lot and hung around my dorm room watching premium cable.  The experience of watching people race tractors on ESPN 2 on sunny Wednesday afternoons is what inspired this particular strip.  The whole “balancing a television on the edge of a bathtub” premise would resurface later in the run as well.

This was also the first time I “dressed up” either of the Penguins, complete with changing the slogans from panel to panel.

And let’s assume that the ink blot on the side of the tractor in the title panel is blood spatter, not artist error.  Yeah…let’s do that.
