Now argue with the umpire.
This is one of the ones that I read a bunch in the past but didn’t process how clever it was until today.
To make it a real match, he needs to play against Hobbes.
yeah, one-on-none baseball isn’t very fun at all
I’m actually amazed that Calvin hit the ball straight up.
Time for plan B
His baseball skills are improving.
Looks boring, Calvin.
Thus, “Calvinball” is born!!
Pretty good coordination and skill for a six year old to do the hit/catch thing.
Oooh, nice hit… and nice catch.
It’s no fun to fly out.
B T D That !
Calvin, the one-man inning!
A (self) sacrifice fly?
At least he didn’t use foul language.
Reminds me of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZrU6lcxykYKenny Rogers “I am the greatest”
Reminds me of my last date. …sigh
My childhood summed up in six squares.
Better than me. I’d have struck out.
That’s loads more talent than I have!
Hobbes cheats, so Calvin has to play by himself
This kid should stop playing with himself. Some day.
I’m remembering a small panda, practicing his hitting. When I did hit the ball, I’d shag it and then return to home. OK. Start over. Toss up, swing, nuts. Repeat.
The turmoil of being an only child.Parents bought me a pitch back after I used side of house.
But who’s on first?
Calvin: Out? Are you both blind and dumb? You’re ejected. bub! Hit the showers! I hate it when I eject myself. Calvin’s parents: That boy really needs therapy.
That was a quick game!
Now tell him there is no “I” in team
Let’s see him try that with cricket. :) :) :)
Now try for a double play.
Here, in a nut shell, is life. We are both an attempt to accomplish, and the opposition that hinders us. And then we wonder why we didn’t succeed.
not quite the satisfaction of beating oneself at chess %
How high did ne have to hit the ball to give him time to do that?
Before “Geri’s Game”…
Next – a fight breaks out between the opposing team members…
This feels like something younger me would have done. Snapshot of my childhood right here.
Swings and missesSwings and missesSwings and misses“Wow! I’m a great pitcher!”
Better then I can do.
I am the greatest by Kenny Rogers comes to mind.
