Today's strip features our one and only look at Gordon's father; one glimpse at the screwed up troll is more than enough because what he is is a nutcase who takes the game waaaaay too seriously.

(Strip Number 4139, Original Publication Date, 4 March 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with Elly showing the proper level of support for Mike by yelling "Go! Go! GO!"; John reels as the man next to him yells "KILL'EM!!!!"

Panel 2: The Pattersons blanch as the man screams "GET OUT THERE, GORDIE, YOU DUMMY!!! SKATE!!!"

Panel 3: His yelling "GET UP, STUPID!! GET IN THERE AND HIT HARD!!!" makes them feel sorry for Gordie.

Panel 4: Gordie's Dad, having noticed how freaked they are, turns and asks "What do they think this is? Some kinda kid's game??"

Summary: Since it IS some kinda kid's game, his getting all pissed at Gordon is, while a fact of life whenever there are sports parents, kinda dickish. Looking at this strip, I can well see why Gordon lives in fear of this troll's temper.
