There's No Crying in Derby!

Ha HA! Fooled you there- you thought it was going to be another sad one. SYKE! And yes, in case you're wondering- all of my pop culture references in my comics must include a Tom Hanks character- it's in my contract.

Hey, will it "destroy the magic" if I post a real picture from the bout? Ah, it's my blog- I'll do what I want:

Guess what- I don't even CARE that my chest looks all bony in this picture, like the bony ladies in the "This Bony Lady is Uglier than Marilyn Monroe" memes that have been going around. No, this picture- and the memories that go with it- only makes me happy. :)

Most likely nobody in the crowd cares about your bony chest, either. They care that you passed Full Nelson - probably many times - and lived to tell the tale.

Another great strip!

You rock, Vicki! I wish I could cheer you on in person!

Vicki, I loved this post! You totally got me with your tears of joy, you stinker.

And that photograph is AMAZING. Your form is so powerful and you look like you're having so much fun! Plus, those ribs showing? They're hot!

You look amazing, so intense! I think the crowd loves you too. And the lipstick is perfect, of course!

Thanks, you guys!! :)
