Very deep thinking little leaguers.
I couldn’t have said it better myself, CB in the final panel.
This is one of my favorite strips.
Schulz in top form.
DEFECT and join the other Baseball team, you’re SURE to Win EVERYTIME…
That’s bound to happen when you play baseball on a Sunday I suppose.
Maybe they should have prayed before their games…LOL
The pitcher’s mound is not regulation!That is the problem!
Get that Job fella on the mound. Nine home runs in a row. Good grief!
Not if CB pitches for them, Zero-Gabriel. The secret to making CB’s team a winner is making CB the bench-warmer. But as a player/manager he’d never do that. He’s a lousy manager too.
Would be interesting what Snoopy would say if he was shown in the last panel instead of CB.
What is the score?
Great! Now I don’t have to go to church today… it’s been covered!
Liō is a must see for Peanuts fans today.
Peanuts fans – DO NOT MISS Lio today on gocomics!
Why does he keep on playing baseball?
Start a Bible League, Charlie! Your team is sure to be champions!
Ah, for the days when you could have a theological seminary in the Sunday funnies and no one worried that it would be “offensive.”
Did Job’s wife have 20 children?
Baseball games were enough to put me to sleep, but adding sermons to them will turn me into Rip Van Winkle.
Thanks for the links to today’s Lio. The interpersonal dynamic of the early Peanuts was a lot different from what we saw in the Sixties and beyond: Violet and Patty both liked Charlie Brown, who use to babysit Lucy, who was neither crabby nor a foil for Snoopy, who did his thing on all fours, and…
Good to see Shermy and 5 in today’s strip, too. Peanuts evolved over time to all but eliminate both of them, along with Patty and Violet because Schulz figured their characters were spent so he replaced them with Peppermint Patty, Marcy, Franklin and Woodstock (among others).
Later, of course, Charlie Brown would surrender nine routine fly-outs in a row, all of which Lucy would miss (in a row)! There were always plenty of these philosophical sessions on the pitcher’s mound, usually with Schroeder and Charlie Brown alone, but often Linus or Lucy would wander in. These were some of the best Sunday strips.
Wow. I’m used to Linus quoting The Bible.
If there is anybody who knows about suffering it’s Lucy.
Oh yes… She makes people suffer every day!
This is indeed one of those “messy areas” in the Old Testament…
This is what made the Peanuts comic “great” in an era of “good” comics.
Loved today’s especially! Love Charlie’s statement in the last panel. LOL!
I’d hate to know what CB’s lifetime ERA is.
On 8/19/1960, Shroeder said at the end of the season their team had given up 3040 runs and commited 300 errors. Charlie Brown’s team plays 20 game seasons so that means he pitched 160 innings that season. There’s no word on how many runs were unearned so lets say 740. (One time in 9/5/1966, Peppermint Patty pitched for Charlie Browns team and pitched a no hitter but still gave up 37 unearned runs due to the teams errors)
Given all these facts and assumptions, his lifetime ERA would be around 115.00. Seems about right.
