Good grief!

lt's morning already,

and this is the day

of our first game.

l'm no manager.

l can't run a baseball team.

Everybody knows

l'm a lousy manager.

Nobody even pays attention

to me.

They all hate me.

l think l'll just stay in bed.

Maybe it'll rain.

Maybe no one else

will show up either.

l'll just stay in bed,

and l'll...

Okay, manager,

rise and shine!

Why do we have to

play the first game

so far from home?

That's the schedule.

The only time

l hate being the catcher

is when we go on the road.

l wonder if we're

going the right way.

How much further,

Charlie Brown?

Only about two

or three more blocks.

l hate being

the visiting team.

They're here, sir.

Hiya, Chuck.

Welcome to our neighborhood.

We appreciate you coming

over here with your team

for the first game

of the season.

Thank you.

Why don't you guys

take the field

for a little warm-up?

Then we'll

start the game.

Okay. l'll hit

them a few flies.

Good grief, Lucy!

You're going to have

to do better than that.

What did you expect?

l'm suffering from jet lag.

Oh, no, you don't.

You get fed after the game,

not before.

l hate these salary disputes.

Good grief!

May l ask you how you

intend to play shortstop

with a supper dish

in your mouth?

l should never ask.

Have you seen

our baseball schedule

for this year?

My team plays

your team 12 times.

We slaughter you twice

in April,

smash you three times

in May,

and ruin you once

in June.

We murder you twice

in July,

annihilate you three times

in August,

and pound you once

in September.

lt's a great schedule,

huh, Chuck?

Yeah. Just beautiful.


Something is missing.

You know that, Chuck?

This is our first

game of the season,

and we don't have any

opening-day ceremonies.
