I don’t read the New York tabloids that often, so until YankeeFanLen sent me this link the other day I had never seen any of Bill Gallo’s sports cartoons, at least not that I know of.
On one level I appreciate the effort and the artistry involved. And it certainly takes one back to newspaper days of old (really old: check out the dancing girls with the “cha cha” music playing in the background here), so good for Gallo to keep plugging away at this.
But really, can you find much if any difference between these and the “Kelly” cartoons at The Onion? The obvious labels, the obvious (hmmm . . .how should I put this . . .) elder-sensibility. It’s right on the nose, isn’t it?
Tuck! — are you in the same union as Gallo? Can you mention to him that ballplayers don’t go out cha-cha dancing anymore?
