I'll be honest: the strategy that led me to this point is sort of coming apart. Having posted three weeks' worth of base- and Calvinball-themed strips in celebration of the Royals' march towards baseball supremacy, I've expended all my material before the conclusion of their Cinderella season.
Okay, counting those two strips above, we're fresh out of Calvin & Hobbes' baseball stuff. However, take heart: one major screwup doesn't necessarily spell doom, however grim it might first appear.
That's right, True Believers: there are still a bunch of football-themed strips. Since football is also a sport, and my ability to differentiate between it and baseball is spotty at best, as far as I'm concerned, it's basically the same thing. Sports!
"Why didn't you just run some Peanuts cartoons this week? There are probably hundreds of those about baseball, many of which we'd find more relevant than your ham-fisted attempt to compare the Royals' performance in Game 1 to your own failings as a guy who posts things on this blog," you're probably thinking, or about to think. And you're correct, but I didn't think about that until I'd finished typing the second paragraph above, and re-writing this current paragraph to cop to it has eaten up much of my late afternoon. Just be thankful we made it this far, no matter what happens next.
