The New Yorker Draws Sports Angst

We can’t decide if this joke by David Sipress, one of our favorite New Yorker cartoonists, is funny or just boringly true, but we couldn’t resist posting it. Sipress is always harping on the anxiety of fandom like in his “Rooting for them is a disease” cartoon, his “Daddy doesn’t hate the Yankees — Daddy has issues with the Yankees” gag, his sports transference cartoon, his Red Sox apocalyptic joke, and more.

While we’re at it, check out a classic Harry Bliss hockey cartoon, a Danny Shanahan baseball drawing, a Bob Mankoff, and a Michael Crawford.

And from Modern Spectator contributors: Go jogging with Carolita Johnson, go figure skating with Emily Richards (Hopkins), and get ready for the Olympics with Marshall Hopkins.
