Herriman Saturday

Saturday, February 29 1908 -- Pretty self-explanatory, Stanford meets the St. Vincent Saints in a collegiate baseball game.


SVC was Herriman's alma mater. I always wonder if he is lampooning any of his old associates in these St. Vincent's sports comics, or what it was like when he went back to his old school to attend games as a Hearst cartoonist.
I like the goat wondering what's going on, anyway. I sure animals think that about humans all the time.
Nothing too funny there (mostly inside jokes, I guess) but it's neat to see this. I think it shows that people were much more connected to their teams in the past. I imagine a lot of readers on the sports page knew who all these people were. --Matt
