He’s fine how he his, Lucy. Actually, you look kinda goofy like that!
whatever you say, Lucy
game face, a losing game, but a game face!
Let Lucy pitch. She’ll scare batters with that look.
Change the team name to The Gargoyles and make her the mascot.
Looking and acting nasty wasn’t a problem for Ty Cobb.
I think that Lucy has been sucking on some of those Super Sour candies that some kids seem to love.
Advice coming from the person who can’t even play HER position correctly?
Am I weird for thinking that Lucy actually looks cute in the second panel?
For her, is a natural face.
Lucy teaching Charlie Brown how to imitate “Dave Stewart”, the intimidating pitcher for the 80s Oakland As, long before there even WAS a Dave Stewart… :-P
You see. That’s what I mean when I say Lucy ought to be the pitcher. Her countenance alone would so effect the batter he’d never hit the ball.
Yeah, channel ol’ Al Hrabosky, the Mad Hungarian…
Now that is a nasty face Lucy made.
If you grit your teeth, it might make it easier when the batter hits the ball back at you, causing you to spin in the air before crashing back on the mound.
They might hit the ball harder back at CB
Maybe you could give a crash course in that, Lucy.
Now she’s probably going to want 5 cents
before each pitch – walk around the mound talking to the ball. smile than scowl at the batter. shake of the pitch signal at least a dozen times than nod your head vigorously, laugh wickedly and release the pitch! – then duck Charlie Brown cause the balls gonna come whizzing back at you so hard ALL your clothes are going to go flying off. SIGH
Sal Maglie.Burleigh Grimes.Face it,Charlie Brown just isn’t a meanie at heart like they were.
Ah yes, the old sneerball pitch.
Lucy is so PESAMISTIC
A great pun, and something I tried to practice throwing my Spaldeen against a concrete wall with a box painted on it at my neighborhood park. Two out bottom of the ninth, we’re ahead by one, and here’s the rock steady ace staring down the league’s home run king. You can’t hit me meat.
He pitches nasty.
Let Lucy stand there. Either she’ll frighten them with that look or they’ll beam her with the hit baseball instead of you.
One of the funky ideas of Lucy which will not work, especially on the roundhead.
Just pull your hat down over your eyes like Troy Percival used to do or squint a lot before throwing a pitch so the batter thinks you can’t see where you’re about to throw it.
The last person to take advice from on baseball, but the first to ask about looking mean.
One of my friends was a top youth baseball and softball coach. He taught all of his pitchers to glare at the batter as if they wanted to kill them.
panel 2 made me almost barf
