Hail! Goes Throwback To The Sonny/Billy Days

Posted by Matt Terl on April 8, 2011 – 9:35 am

Today, writer/artist Ben Ceccarelli explores yet another part of the Redskins’ Days Of Future Past with Hail! Throwback: the now-legendary QB controversy between Sonny Jurgensen and Billy Kilmer. There are a few different references in this one that might be unfamiliar to some of our younger readers — not least the bumper sticker mention in the first panel — so let me point you at this article from Washingtonian magazine, which gives at least a cursory background to everything here.

One other thing I’ve learned from these Throwback episodes: Cartoon Me’s hairstyle is shockingly timeless. I mean, it fit in with Sammy Baugh in the 1930’s, it fits in with Sonny in the 1970’s … I mean, that look transcends fashion, really. My real hair … not so much.

Anyhow, as always, click this first panel or the Read More link to see the rest of the strip.
