And neither of them play with a live badger for a ball.

Someday there will be badgerball.

Honestly I might have to insert a reference to that somewhere in my comic, I don't really have a lego badger to show the sport.

I think this will make American Football more interesting:

• Make EVERYONE take steroids.

• Rig the ball so that it randomly explodes.

• Release 10 badgers on the field.

• Ditch the pads and make everyone play naked

• Don't pay the players anything.

It would be too easy to predict the winner, i.e. the badger.

Calvinball can never be a professional sport, it is by nature amateurish.

We should organize a Calvinball game. I'll bring the time-fracture wickets.

And we'd have to find a far less easy to destroy playing field. Or, a very easy to destroy playing field.

instead of doing what everyone said I should I went with my husbands thoughts and my gut and told my grandmother. She called my brother to "see how things were" since they hadn't talked in a long while. She left him a message and never breathed word of what she knew. He called her back immediately and told her everything without her even saying a word.
I guess in this case going with my gut was the best thing, it cleared the air and my name was never mentioned and from what she told me he seemed glad to tell her.
I do know that it wasn't really my place but I know that in this case it helped bridge a gap that had grown between the only two people in my family I am truly close to.

Phaw. "Organize." Right. :roll: I'll go grab my mask! Anyone else need one? :D

Damn, I miss Calvin and Hobbes. :cry: Still, at least it ended before it became an endless cesspool of overused (and bad) jokes. Like today's newspapers.

Rugby players ALL have nice butts.

And sexy sexy sexy legs. I don't know the rules but I love to watch it :D

And KWill: I never said I didn't like soccer (football as opposed to american football? you know what I mean), just that I like football. I had a lot of fun watching it in pubs on TV when I was in germany.
