We end the week with a reminder that people who are not like Elly are dumb when the coach cries because he got shut out of the big tournament.

(Strip Number 4947, Original Publication Date, 1 April 1988)

Panel 1: After the game, Mike says that that's it because they lost the tournament.

Panel 2: He then makes the mistake of telling Elly that the nearness of the thing is what really upsets the coach.

Panel 3: Elly tries to remind Mike that his coach knows that this is just a game and that grown men don't take things like this so seriously.

Panel 4: Elly gets all buggy-eyed when she looks into the locker room and sees the coach crying.

Summary: You can almost see the smug, superior smirk of Lynn's face when she thinks of this strip. To her, it's an example of a stupid man attaching too much importance to a confusing waste of Elly's valuable time. After all, time wasted supporting Mike's interests is time not cleverly invested sweeping the back porch.
