The Kid Who Could - Page 9
Tony and the boys have made it into the stadium and are dumbfounded by all the empty stands. This is supposed to be a Cardinals game, not a game in Miami! Ozzie is able to pick them out easily among the other 7 fans in the stands and invites them all to the dugout, which is full or the most motley of characters since the Star Wars Cantina. Smirky McCopstashe in the foreground is having a good laugh at the impromptu press conference.
This panel is all kinds of awesome. We've got Oprah Winfrey's dumpy sister doing an interview while her idiot cameraman films something else. A 1940's style reporter complete with fedora and ugly suit takes noted for his beat column. It appears that a rogue camera is about to clonk the dude with the flattop and shades. All this is happening while the Cardinal player (Terry Pendleton? He's fat enough, but TP might have been a Brave by this point) is explaining something that is bizarre at best and obscene at worst to the crowding reporters. Seriously, what the hell is he doing? Somebody think up a caption for this interview, I really need to know what's going on with TP there.
