Sports Engineering

I think in store they probably get mad if you try to play this game. They can’t stifle American creativity..using British products, forever. Though using a Dyson fan like this would somewhat resemble Quidditch, which is again a British invention. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Dude, my grandparents just sent me $200 for my birthday! I should do something responsible with it, like ... Read More »

You hope that they’re just kidding and don’t actually believe they have anything to do with the game. You hope. ↓ TranscriptBILLY: Hey #23, how about shooting the ball at ... Read More »

Undefeated Season

The Racers of Murray State University (where Professor Hobo began) are currently 21-0, and the last undefeated team in men’s college basketball. Pretty cool, huh?

Go Racers. ↓ TranscriptJOURNALIST: Coach T, your basketball team is ... Read More »

Whip Into Shape

This strip originates from watching a real college football practice in the rain. It didn’t seem safe, but more than that it didn’t seem like much fun. I would have taken an umbrella with me while I ran drills. ↓ TranscriptCOACH T: Now that we got these boys back onto campus, it's time to whip them into shape. ASSISTANT: But ... Read More »
