Mr. Hamfist looks like he's getting ready to sell some hot dogs at the big game. "Red Hots! Get cha Red Hots here! Bobby Black's favorite Red Hots!"
Poor Hina! She's squeezing that remote control so hard her eyes are crossing!I wonder what the remote is for? Maybe there's a robotic waitress out there doing Hina's job at Diner, because she certainly isn't doing it.I wonder if Mary will break out the ol' pennant and raccoon coat for Game? She's been a supporter of the Santa Royale Support Sox since they were founded in 1908, of course.--Beagle Vet
Oops, guess that's actually a phone.Oh well. But a remote-controlled waitress would still do a better job than Hina. Heck, the PHONE would do a better job than Hina.--Beagle Vet
So, Hina has a feeling he won't help her? Now she knows how Diner patrons feel.(Red Hots! Support Sox! Stop, you're killing me here)
Sometimes a work of art leaves one breathless, speechless.Numb.
Chris Christie/Magilla Soccerilla seems to be overprotective of his boys. He reminds me of a hamfisted Mrs. Garrett from "The Facts of Life." When he goes into the locker room, does he start trilling "Boys! Boys! Boys!!!!!"Hopefully Gina comes to her senses, realizes that she shouldn't put her faith in someone who resembles a New Jersey politician, and takes the initiative to go to the game to seek out Bobby Black herself. Gina, you owe us that much!!!WV: "Surebar," the new energy supplement that turns you into a yes man.
Maybe Hina can become Bobby's number three.
Hot dog vendor? I was thinking the shirt and cap made Coach Hamfist look like a tow truck driver.Who rearranged his office?P.S. Loving the Mrs. Garrett reference! Now if we could just find a way to work in Reuben Kincaid.
Crazy stalkers. Ok, back to chaning oil on the team's bus.
If we have learned nothing else from past MW stories, it is that minor characters, while they may "entertain" us for months on end, nonetheless almost always disappear quite abruptly and thoroughly. To wit: Bonnie? Bonnie Johnson?, Liza the stalker nurse, Hahahaha-Jill and, most respectfully, the late Aldo Kelrast. (And these are just a few characters I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure there are scores of others.) So we know that Gina-Hina will disappear as well. The question is only when and in what manner. My vote is still for her to leave Santa Royale for some kind of groupie lifestyle, wherein she follows the NY Blazes to the ends of the earth to be with her Bobby. As to when Gina-Hina's fate will be known....... Well, that'll depend on when Moy & Giella get back from their extended vacation and release the office monkeys that have been running the show back into the wild.
Time put out "DINER WELCOMES NY BLAZES!! FREE COFFEE-IF YOU CAN GET WAITRESS TO SERVE YOU" sign.
Shmoopie, I've also noticed that we seem to get a real kick out of the bit players, like Helen Clark, Magilla Soccerilla, and of course Creepy Man in Diner Wearing Mom Jeans.
Someone remarked earlier this week that Diner was funded by the government. I'm not sure how witless protection works, but maybe Papa Jiminez was set up with a business. Although we haven't seen him, maybe he's there, running the diner. It would explain Hina's casual attitude toward actually doing her job- she can't be fired.
I think Gina depended a little too much on Mary Worth's sports knowledge. Apparently the New York Blazes are a 10 year old little league team. Their manager is acting as a concerned parent would be at calls from sexual predators.
I love Guido Hamfist's cap - it looks like he used a magic marker to scrawl "New York Blazes" on a scrap of paper (maybe a receipt for a pizza) and stuck it above the bill. I can't wait to see him in the locker room with his guys!Note the head in the booth in panel 2. That's a guy who died of starvation waiting for Gina to bring him his food.
Hina will have to sit in the nosebleed seats of Stadium if she doesn't hurry up and get tickets!! And Mary will, of course, have to buy herself some fan gear and brush up on her New York accent so she pass herself off as a Blue Blaze fan! (She would MUCH rather sit on the SR Support Sox side with Wilbur and the Camerons, and Ernie? Ernie?Johnson? etc. but..oh, well. This is for Gina. *sigh*)
wow this phonecall has so perplexed gina she has gone crosseyed. whats with the hina i dont get the joke? sim sala bim for now
Vicki: SR Support Sox!!! LOL!! I love it!!!! I think that we should all get jerseys made. Then, we can organize a flash mob, show up at some random sporting event and shouting encouragment for "our team."
Funny 30Rock reference. Try as I may, I can't reconcile Frank's easygoing and irreverent personality with that of the New York Blazers uptight and diligent manager. But Frank would wear that hat...
