What a way to start the day. I just read yesterday's comments and now have "I wish I was Bobby's Girl" in my head. I'm afraid the song will be with me all day! (Of course, Heena has been singing it for years.)
Well, I see where this is going. Gina will be waiting at Hotel. When Team arrives, they'll be swarmed by Groupies. One of two things will happen- Gina will see that Bobby is Major Player, she'll touch her face and run sobbing out of Lobby. Or....Bobby will see her, run to her and embrace her.
And then the Charterstone Vuvuzela Marching Band will serenade them.
As a former sports groupie, I wish I could give Hina the benefit of my experience. Really, all she need do is go to Bar, which is near Arena, after the game. No camping out on game day needed. A good thing, as that really messes up your makeup.
ROFL at the Charterstone Vuvuzela Marching Band. Meg, you really have a gift. :-)
@meg: Fans swarm. Groupies do not. People seem to equate the two these days, but the demographic is quite different.
Wait, did they just end up back in Booth, in Diner? They were at the door, and about to end this insipid encounter. We all must have been very bad in our past life to deserve such treatment.
firstname.lastname@example.org - the second part of your post will be what happens. Nothing really untoward - or even semi-interesting like sobbing - ever happens in the Worthiverse.
I was thinking that Gina/Heena might dress as a cheerleader and make a beeline for Bobby. Pompoms and ponytail - it could work.
Unbeknown to Gina, her life is about to be hit by yet another cruel twist of fate. It's been many years, but after a long night of drinking and watching DVDs about Scotland, Prof. Ian Cameron is about to revisit his long forgotten thuggish soccer hooligan past, and show up at ''Stadium'' ready to throw some hammers and bash some heads!
Oh, Maude- please tell me if Ian will be wearin' th' kilt?
I really liked Mary's idea that Heena camp out.
Wait a minute!Somebody help me with this..."Jimenez?"What happened to "Baroni"?Did I fall asleep, er, miss something?
@meg- I'm guessing the kilt, and probably commando underneath!
Would Gina's "direct way" have anything to do with a skateboard? Or maybe a flashy message on Arena's jumbo-tron? Whatever, it's bound to throw Bobby off his game and the Blazes will lose. Way to go, Gina.
Because you can't be a respectable stalker without camping out to what for your stalkee....And why can I see this wrapping up in 3 days, after Bobby blows her off, and gina shrugs (a'la Sept. 20th) with an "oh well, I tried!" i would seriously be upset with my time investment in this plot.
I can't imagine Mary even suggested Heena "camp out" at the arena!!! The thought of our Heena, who IS a fairly attractive young woman after all... unrolling her little pink Dora the Explorer sleeping bag under a dim street light, on the gum-stained sidewalk in front of Arena's front gate...it's pathetic and unthinkable!!! Mary must really hate Heena. Shame on you Mary!
There was no malice in Mary's suggestion. That's just the way she used to do it when Rudy Valee came to town. Only she had a Clara Bow sleeping bag.
tuffenuf@11:43 a.m., you missed Saturday's strip, wherein Gina came out as "Gina Jiminiz" (odd spelling and all). Maybe you need to get some of Diner's coffee, if Mary and Gina have not consumed all of it.
Why doesn't Gina just pick up the phone and call him? Thats pretty direct to me.
"Have a chance on game day?" To what, get an autograph.
lol at Meg. Gotta love the vuvuzelas. The hypnotizing droning of the vuvuzela is almost like listening to Gina having a conversation.Maude, we could only wish that would happen! (But that would explain where he's been for so long. He's holed up in his apartment, watching those videos. Poor Toby is getting hacked again by scammers.)Chester: Having Gina pick up the phone and call Bobby would be too easy. We need to stretch this storyline out until Christmas! *shudders* I'm just imagining Gina and Bobby's reunion. It'll be Christmas before Gina says hi to him. Then we have all of next year to look forward. :-p
Eeewwww! Ian Cameron going commando under his kilt is one of the few things even grosser than Adrian & that pasty dude on their local honeymoon. Thanks a lot, Maude.
In the world of soccer, DIRECT CONTACT is very often a foul.
maybe gina will sneak into the mascots locker room and steal the costume . or just give him a bottle of jim beam to wear it then jump on bobby in pregame warmups
Meanwhile, while we've been watching Gina Baroni Jiminez hem and haw about what to do, we've forgotten to pay our respects to THE stalker, the one and only Aldo Kerast. (Sept. 22 would have been the anniversary when Mary Worth gave him his marching orders.)Now he'd know what to do in Gina's situation!! Of course, it would include barreling into a soccer arena with a souped-up station wagon and a quart of rum.
