Thanks to maggiethecartoonist, who says “Always remember pants”. Related
What kind of place is he checking himself into? The standing man looks like a waiter or bartender, but there would be stuff on the counter and in the cupboards. But equally it doesn’t seem like a clinic desk.
Andertoons never dates anything, so it’s impossible to tell just when Cartoon #8881 was originally published, but it just barely missed being an amusing case of near synchronicity: Friday’s first game of the NHL Eastern Conference final missed going to a fifth overtime by just 13 seconds, the deciding goal was scored at 19:47 of the fourth overtime. It would be interesting to know just how many fans stuck around all the way to the end (at 2am on Saturday morning).
After Reply All, I really really wannabe stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis blues again.
Now the rainman gave me two cures
Then he said, “Jump right in”
The one was Texas medicine
The other was just railroad gin
An’ like a fool I mixed them
An’ it strangled up my mind
An’ now people just get uglier
An’ I have no sense of time
Quite a lot of fans still in their seats in that video, though it’s hard to say how many of them moved down from upper bowls to fill in vacated seats.
I think that’s the joke – checking oneself in “out of an abundance of caution” is normally done in a hospital, but he’s checking himself into a bar.
My take was the same as jjmcgaffey’s.
Not only did those fans stick around, they got to see the home team lose. Interestingly, all four Conference Final games have gone to overtime. In the ECF, Matthew Tkachuk has scored both OT goals. He was a classmate of basketball star Jayson Tatum who is participating in the NBA Conference finals. Both attended Chaminade in the St. Louis area.
Guess that’s not Brent Musberger in the Andertoons, since I remember him going something like this about a third overtime basketball game:
“Tied again! I don’t believe it! Garfield Heard at the buzzer! Threw one in outside! We’ve got a THIRD overtime here in the Boston Garden!”
