The activities of the brats, scoundrels and cheaters of sports will cause dark clouds to boil overhead until the heavens open up and pound them with a deluge of scorn and shame, Hinds said. Until then, there is the Tank McNamara Sports Jerk of the Year.

Co-created in 1974 by Bill Hinds and the late Jeff Millar, Tank McNamara successfully merges the sports and comics worlds with sizzling satire of the absurdities in big-time athletics.

Hinds and Millar met in 1973 when Millar who once said he couldn’t even draw stick figures went out looking for a collaborator for an adult-oriented comic strip about sports. Tank McNamara began syndication through Universal Press Syndicate in August 1974.

From 2001 to 2010, Hinds also wrote and illustrated the comic strip Cleats, which focused on the complex world of competition and camaraderie from the perspective of kids, parents and coaches. Hinds and his family currently live in Spring, Texas, a suburb of Houston, which is his hometown.
