Play-By-Play Commentary


Looks like a lob from Inman. Cornell wrong-footed him with that last shot. This is funny, but the momentum is still with Cornell.

Hard not to see Inman's use of Marker Felt for the "As she should have been" as a taunt directed at yours truly up here in the commentary booth.

Nice detail work on the distressed type. Inman didn't take the easy way out by using a pre-distressed font. The emphasis on "Pasiphae", though, draws attention to Cornell's cleverness, she being the mother of the Minotaur in Greek mythology.

And how, exactly, does one discern the difference between natural and imitation goat's blood? By taste, I suppose.
