Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for February 23, 1997
Nate: Coach, we have a problem. Coach`: We do? Nate: You know that research paper you assigned? It's due tomorrow! Coach: Yes, I know. Nate: But our big game against Jefferson is tonight! Coach: Nate, I assigned that paper three weeks ago! You should be finished! Nate: Well...yeah but that's not the point! The point is, we've got to beat Jefferson! They're our arch-rival! As your starting point guard, I have to focus on the game! I can't be worrying about finishing some paper! So we understand each other, right, coach? Coach: Oh yes. Francis: We're winning! Nate: Shut up.
well thats why you do your homework kids!
