Deja LOL

They were separated by a few years in the magazine; but you might remember seeing a suspiciously similar New Yorker panel here not so long ago.

Bats

Is there any logic in making this reference about a team that not only hits well year after year, but is famous for doing so?

Now, if you wanted to make a reference to not being able to get a runner in from third base with nobody out, that would be another matter: but this makes less sense than claiming that all New Yorkers wear black.

Okay, if “getting his bell rung” caused brain damage, he must have been wearing it wrong.

Death Takes Roy Halladay

Cidu Bill on Jun 13th 2012

Okay, the important thing here is that I got to use the subject line I thought of too late last week.

But there’s also the matter of… huh??

This actually might work as a sequel to last Thursday’s CIDU.

I mean seriously… does this strip’s readership skew so old that Albert Pujols wouldn’t have worked much better?

The Switch

Cidu Bill on Feb 25th 2010

In 1972, New York Yankees ace pitcher Fritz Peterson and Yankees not-quite-ace Mike Kekich traded wives (and families and homes and dogs). Peterson and Kekich’s wife are still together to this day, while things didn’t work out so well for the other couple.

This was still back in the day when stories like this could be kept relatively quiet.

Ben Affleck now owns the rights to the story, and he might star in the film along with Matt Damon. Now, as much as I’m a non-fan of both Affleck and Damon, and I hate the two of them together, I am absolutely first in line to see this.

Okay, it looks to me as if he’s going in face first (though I think ballplayers generally refer to it as going in “headfirst,” for fairly obvious reasons) — so where’s the joke?

Paiging Frazz

Two people asked me if whether I knew of any special significance to what appears to be a Satchel Paige tribute. Sunday was not, after all, the anniversary of his birth, death or first game in the major leagues. Paige was the subject of a new biography earlier this month, but that’s all I could find.
