Welcome one and all to the brand new year of 2017. Yesterday, my pal, Tim Baker, shared on Facebook the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip that you see above. I could think of no better way to welcome in this brand new year than to place it in the first Grandstander post of 2017. This, incidentally, was the final original strip of this classic Comic by Bill Watterson. It ran on December 31, 1995. Happy New Year, one and all!
