Building a Snowman


One of the most frequent comments that I hear is, “this is your best one yet.” I don’t believe that I’m continually topping myself. More likely, it is because the newest material is usually commenting on something that you are already thinking about.

That theory aside, Jim Margalus at soxmachine.com has put together a list of his top 8, Palehose 7 and Palehose 6 comic strips. It’s a huge compliment from a guy with a lot more Sox insight than I have. I don’t know how to appropriately reciprocate beyond simply urging you to check it out.

You'll shoot yer eye out, YOU'LL SHOOT YER EYE OUT! Maybe it should be, "you'll shoot yourself in the foot!"

The cartoon, not the situation we're in...

OUTSTANDING! The genius is back. Since you're on a roll as of late, I might have to get the hose out to slow you down...

Brilliant.

That sums up the sad situation of the White Sox perfectly.

Awesome! I laughed out loud. I'm saving it as my desktop to give you more exposure!

I would anticipate that there's not going to be a PH8. If there is, I hope you pick the right background story. 'Cause,it's going to be a long season.

I recently saw a reputable prediction that puts the Chi Sox last in the AL Central. Sadly, I have to agree at this point. Let's just pray that Ken and Jerrys can pull off something to get us out of the cellar and on the top.
Great strip Carl - keep up the excellent work.

This is as good as Calvin and Hobbes snowman strips! Carl, you are a freakin hilarious genius!

We should remember than Kenny has something that these other GM's don't have with their respective teams, A RING. So the laugh is still on them.

BTW- This is epidimic of all our sports teams, good one year and bad the next. Who will change the trend- Sox, Bulls, Bears? I think that's all the major league teams in town, that matter at least.

Bulls were good for a decade, remember? Won 6 titles in 8 years, and were in the Conference Finals for something like 10 out of 11 years during that span. So were the Bears during the 80s. From 84 through 88, they had 64 wins (most of any team over 5 seasons), three conference championship appearances (84, 85, 88), and post the single season defense scoring record (184 points).

This one and done thing is kinda recent, though it's been across all of our sports teams...

I love all your comics Carl. I think they helped make me more of a fan. You always convey exactly what I'm thinking in a hilarious and ironic way, and it always seems like you consistently out-do yourself. If only the White Sox were America's team like those damn Yankees; you'd be in publication all over America.
