The War of the Public Enemies
I’m a huge Johnny Depp fan and can’t wait to see his newest movie “Public Enemies”. I was, of course, particularly fond of the films title because it plays right into baseball’s ugliest family feud, the Yankees vs. the Red Sox. So here’s a cartoon that goes out to the boys of summer.
Don’t forget our caption contest for the week which is winding down. Get those last minute entries in pronto.
The Rockies have a Hurdle to climb
Somehow, someway the Rockies will have to find a way either through, over or around the dodgers if they hope to continue their June Boom and make a real run at a playoff spot.
Question of the day?
Are the Rockies better in the long run without Matt Holliday?
Question: Are you as tired of the constant focus on steroids in baseball as I am? If I don’t draw another cartoon about it all, I’m more than fine. Admittedly I am conflicted. It makes for good cartoon material. On the other hand I relate to the guy in the chair in this cartoon. Do you feel the same way? Let me know by offering your comments.
I attended Andrew Hudson’s Reinvent Event yesterday. It was kind of a Networking program. I’ll be telling you more about it soon here on the blog. Stay tooned.
You know the economy is bad when…
All of us by now are just a wee bit tired of bad economic news. How bad is it? Well, that’s where this idea came from. These are my favorite kinds of sports cartoons to do, ones that a large segment of people can relate to. Hopefully they go where every cartoonist dreams a good cartoon will go…the refrigerator, the office cubicle or break room or taped to someones cash register or the wall behind a deli. I once had some routine blood work done at one of those diagnostics places. When I sat down I faced an entire wall of my cartoon clippings. It was strange, to say the least, but it did make me feel like I was in good hands.
Not to confused with the swine flu, it seems as thought the Rockies recent winning streak has sparked new enthusiasm for some fans. So, have you turned on the switch yet or do you favor a more conservative approach, like, say, after they win the division?
By the way, there are two really great Rockies websites that you should know about if you don’t already. Former Rocky Mountain News baseball experts Tracy Ringolsby and Jack Etkin are hammering out home run coverage at http://www.insidetherockies.com and Purple Row a terrific blog that can’t be beat.

Softball Better left for the pros is my motto. These kinds of cartoons are probably my favorite kind to draw. I love how relationships revolve around sports and it's always good material for the slower days of summer, before football starts and hockey and basketball wind down." title="Warning: Weekend Warrior Alert" />
