... its just the hole
Don't be so pessimistic Noah, you're already doing better than, for example, Felix.
Just kick it in the ball! Or kick the ball, that works too.
Noah can't drop out, but he can resign.
It seems the ball hit the guy from behind, so it's more kickball than ballkick ;)
Also, I understand Noah. Sports are stupid. There are more stupid and less stupid ones, but still. They may be good for training certain skills, but there are always better alternatives.
Have you seen my copy of the greatest movie of all time?
it fell in the hole...
Is the light on his belt missing in the last panel?
