I've been meaning to have more Badger in the strip for...pretty much the whole strip. He appeared in Strip #8, then in Strip #64 (and weas referenced in #65), but I just never got around to it. Even Strip #36 foreshadows his (possible) future home under Drew's stump. Well, he's here now.
I'm not making this up, by the way. There is a "Tiger App" available, named in honor of its inspiration - Tiger Woods.
