Hail! writer/artist Ben Ceccarelli is back from his honeymoon, and his comic strip returns with him. Today, Ceccarelli takes a look at an old legend surrounding Pat Fischer, which — for background — I’ll explain by quoting Tarhog & TK-IV II I’s excellent Redskins History 101 from over on Extremeskins:
Pat Fischer was an anecdote-teller’s dream. He was rumored to be fond of chewing on a mouthful of ‘stick-um’ to relax before games. Supposedly finding it difficult to find well-fitting knee pads, Fischer would allegedly tape disposable diapers around his knees. It was also reportedly common for Fischer to send young fans in the stands after hot coffee to warm him during cold-weather games.
Apparently Fischer would’ve been a cartoonist’s dream as well. As always, click this first panel or the Read More link to see the rest of the strip.
