"Get Fuzzy" is one of my daily reads. It is a very smart, funny comic that is quite entertaining every day. He had a great series where he made fun of Pittsburgh, then proceeded to do a "Apologies to Pittsburgh" week that ended with Bucky Katt wearing a LeBron James Cavaliers jersey and Satchel Pooch wearing a Browns cap.
Suffice to say, Rob (the main guy) had a nervous breakdown last season after the Sox collapse against Bucky's beloved "Yankers". Looks like this'll be another fun go-round this year!

Anyhow, my girlfriend found the GET FUZZY book "Groovatutde: the Get Fuzzy Treasury" At Walden Books and we both laughed like morons! Had to buy it and all the other ones we could find. Having a Shar Pei mix of our own, we feel a special place for Satchel.
I got a daily "Get Fuzzy" desk calendar for Christmas this year. Having no experience with the strip, and having no "Far Side" this year, I decided to give it a try. It's consistently funny and clever.
Of course, they did a strip this year about the cousin losing his leg in Iraq, and it got attacked like mad in some of the more conservative parts of my area (i.e. anywhere off campus), but, thankfully, it's back, and the controversey seems to be forgotten.
What's whip? It's a stat I have seen with increaing regularity in recent months but have been unable to figure out its meaning. EDIT: Just a guess that just came to mind...is it walks plus hits per inning pitched?
