not a sports guy, so maybe that's the problem. but i don't get the punchline. i read the last one so i get why he's talking about hover jets, but what's that got to do with the sport almanac?

You've seen Back to the Future II, right? Marty and the Doc go into the future and Marty buys a sports almanac with the outcome to games that haven't been played yet. The idea was to take this information and place bets on the outcomes to make money. Doc Brown shoots Marty down citing potential rifts in the timestream, but a future version of Biff grabs the almanac, steals the time machine and gives it to a younger version of himself. Biff amasses a huge fortune and alters the timestream. Yeah... It makes more sense if you've seen the movies. Don't worry. I'm done with the Back to the Future strips.

I know it's a bad idea to really start analyzing the logic behind a web comic, but... whaaaa?? How is a sports almanac that's a decade past its glory days help out in this situation? It was only useful in the film because it was for sporting events that hadn't yet been played and could thus be wagered upon. Its value is solely based upon taking being able to knowledge of the future back to the past and profit from it. To have gone back in time to get this almanac would serve no purpose if you intend on returning to our current time. If you intend on putting the book to use as they did in the film, does that mean you're going to go further into the past to use it? If that's the case why not just bypass this and go straight to 1980 and buy some Apple stock? I'm writing a letter to my Congressman to see if we can get a hearing going on this. The public has a right to know. /taking things too seriously
