In honor of the start of the NFL season, here’s a look at the final art for a sports piece from MAD #416, April 2002. It’s called “Their Team… Your Team…” written by J. Prete. It is one of only four jobs I ever did for MAD in black and white, although MAD was in full color by the time it saw print. The concept was gags involving how the same behavior or situation is looked at differently if it applies to a team you root for, or for one that you don’t. Clicky any to embiggen:
Their Team… has a has an overpaid prima donna. Your Team… has a superstar worth every penny.Their Team… is down 3-zip in the World Series. Stick a fork in them, they’re done! Your Team… is down 3-zip in the World Series. But, hey, it ain’t over till it’s over!
