    This is funny stuff! The subtle, smart humor is so well done… loved the “danced counter-clockwise” and the “tied since 1945”.Report

    The current Leftward Valley uniforms are under ligations from Nike and the U of O claiming they have universal rights to any and every garish green and yellow uni’s in all real and fictional worlds.Report

    @mark-kruger, compliments on pushing the analogy as far as you could; the characterization especially of the Leftward Caterpillars is wry and clever.

    The Rightward team seems a bit… monolithic and monochromal, I should say.

    But the punchline is fantastic.Report

      Ha – thanks Burt. Trying to illustrate the right’s tradition and order – not as much to work with as the left’s love of novelty and innovation eh. 🙂 I’ll do better I promise.Report

    Kindof went over my head, possibly due to my lack of understanding of football.Report

    The Rightville players are The Cure, making the Leftward Valley players The Disease?Report

      Electric Light Orchestra, maybe?

      Though I think U2 might be a better analogy for the Rightville team’s “we have one way of playing, and we play that way every time” approach.Report
