It's been fun drawing the Braves this season. I couldn't decide what my last contribution of the year would look like, but I was struck by inspiration this morning. Playing off a conversation earlier in the week, one Larry W. Jones throws his hat into the ring for the most hotly contested seat in November's general election: Manager of the 2011 Braves. In this scene, he receives a powerful endorsement from a political veteran. Next week, I'll put together a fanpost compiling all the drawings from this season. And a first for TC: a dedication. NCChopper's grace and charm have never failed her, and her good nature never fails to brighten my day. It is her presence most of all that I look forward to in gameday threads. Her passion and dedication are to be celebrated, phenomena unto themselves. Chopper, this is for you.
