Tank McNamara is one of my daily rituals; I love the comic strip. It ain't a "funny" strip; it's a docucomedy. And I find it hugely educational!

This aspect of the strip is why I'm posting this here, and not in Entertainment: while Tank and his friends are fictional, the strip is a "news" strip, presenting the truth, or at least a satirical approximation.

Anyone else love this strip? Anyone here hate it?

Our local paper stopped carrying it a couple of years ago. Who was this year's "Sports Jerk of the Year?"

I used to be very fond of Hinds' and Millar's Second Chances. That seems to be gone, but the characters still turn up now and again in Tank.

You're right, Second Chances is no longer, but the Chances do turn up in Tank.

Bill Hinds also does a strip called Cleats, about kids' sports.

It hasn't been decided yet. They're doing a thing where they are trying to decide if Ron Artest is eligible to recieve the award or not.
