COMMENTARY
This was not originally the strip to appear today, but I could not sleep Thursday night after trying and failing miserably to find the right words to say to Casey, so, of course, I drew.  After going 8-0 for eight weeks into the season, Casey’s team suffered their first loss, which just happened to be for the District Championship.  Needless to say, it was not a good evening.

COACH BOB (In Thought): There are some times boy, when even Coach Bob doesn’t have the words.
