GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!

Strip by: Michael C. Fortner

{Liz kicks Odie off of Dilbert's head, past the goalie, and into the football/soccer goal}
SFX: BONK
{Dilbert lies face down on the field and the goalie glares at Liz as she celebrates the goal}
Dilbert: Gee, I've scored five goals that way.
Liz: You've got a good head for this game.

The author writes:

Apparently, Garfield isn't the only one who likes kicking Odie. I guess all of that abuse from Garfield enabled him to be used as the ball in some demented game of football/soccer (name depends on if you are from the USA or not). Why the SPCA hasn't been called on her yet is a mystery.

The title is from the way announcers in Latin America announce a goal. If you haven't heard it like this, here's an example.

Oddly enough, Dilbert's girlfriend in the 90s was named Liz as well.
