This Week in Milford

November 21, 2008

Marty’s only one of the mistakes of the day.

Filed under: bizarre cameos, football, freak hands, Gil Thorp, Marty Moon — jasbeattie @ 2:11 pm


Mistake 1: Gil, working with his receivers? Yeah right, we all know he’s packed it in for the season.

Mistake 2: Letting #70 on the field when he’s clearly not potty-trained. (Or maybe he’s just so scared to be a starter that he’s literally shitting bricks?)

Mistake 3: Gil brought his flask on the field rather than his clipboard. OK, that one wasn’t a mistake, really.

Mistake 4: The two random TV people, who have appeared a grand total of once (Pat Summit) or twice (Billy Dee Williams) finally realize that they hired Marty Moon. (“Nope, I didn’t hire him either…I thought you hired him…OK time to release the hounds on this loser.”)

Mistake 5: Wait, that’s not Billy Dee. That’s Carl Weathers. I imagine he’s just hanging around trying to score some free food

Mistake 6: Reading this pointless comic and then writing 140 words about it…



  1. Holy crap. Marty might get replaced on his whole show? Panel 2 clearly shows that he’s doing his rant in front of a swastika tapestry. How can that be a tired act?

  2. This will almost certainly lead to a boring, prolonged story line in which Marty gets fired, cries about free speech, and Gil tries to get him reinstated. This will run through the end of the football season and into hoop time.

  3. If #70 is a receiver, he must be planning a lot of tackle eligible plays. Are they out of real receivers?

  4. I’m looking forward to Pat Summit and Carl Weathers telling Marty to put on his pimptastic coat and beat it. Wait a minute…how can they tell him to get lost when he’s doing this in his basement? Oh right, just take out the one video camera taping this crap for public access channel 220.

    Marty seems to be getting off smelling his fingers…did he get some behind the camera action from Pat? Maybe Carl. Anyway, he seems just a little too happy. Maybe he’s got a flask with some muskatele under the desk.

  5. It looks like Carl drew a nice picture Marty on his etch-a-sketch in panel three. Now that’s talent!

  6. Panel 3: I seriously thought that was Elmer Vargas’ dad. (I kinda slept through the Elmer storyline.) Cruella DeVil, now, I’ve never seen before in my life.

  7. Guys that is Obama and Hillary waiting to be interviewed by the great Marty Moon!!!!

  8. Perhaps they are just getting tired of Marty’s fanboy looks in panel two, complete with the heart over his head.

  9. Panel3 NOW??? Marty’s act has been a tired one for a very long time. WHY NOW????

    Comment by JJ — November 21, 2008 @ 5:30 pm

  10. Agreed with Comment 6: Armando (Says No!) Vargas is all I can see on the rare occasions that guy (The TV dude, not Armando) shows up.

    Anyway, anyone remember that one Batman storyline where the Joker gets put to death for pretty much the only crime he didn’t commit? That’s kind of the vibe I’m getting here; Marty’s about to get canned for actually raising a legitimate weakness with the Milford game plan this year.

  11. Fine time to be working with your new receivers. Tomorrow is semi
    final action in my world. The system should be taught the same way
    at all levels, so in the inevitable case of injury, a new player
    can be plugged in without major consequence.

  12. Mistake 7: Reading TWIM with the comments and being so entertained.

    Comment by SemperFi4evr — November 21, 2008 @ 8:01 pm

  13. Great, once canned Marty will start a blog about Milford and Coach Thorp…oh wait!


    Comment by Bill-DC — November 21, 2008 @ 10:06 pm

  14. How do you know that Marty is the tired act? Maybe they’re agreeing with him, and soon will convince the other denizens of Milford to go on a witch hunt for Gil. I mean, when they hired him he was supposed to actually win the championship, right?

    Comment by Wynne — November 22, 2008 @ 10:40 am

  15. Anyway, I’d consider Marty a very new act, considering he was just replaced by Eddie Izzard.

    Comment by Wynne — November 22, 2008 @ 10:45 am

  16. Saturday: It looks like this story arc is going to deal with sensationalism in the sports media. And it’s high time–note how both Obama and McCain studiously avoided this powderkeg issue!

  17. The Reverend Marty Moon will encounter troubled waters. He’ll get the sack for getting stale. He’ll be dunned by bookies for his gambling debts. He’ll hit the bottle. When things are at their worst, Gil Thorp will offer pity. That will be Gil’s biggest mistake in his lifetime. The Lady Mudlarks, in the meantime, will start the basketball season at 2-2.

  18. Marty will hit rock-bottom when he wakes up in the Motel 6 on Goshen Highway wearing nothing but a pair of panty hose with the rear end reamed out, several gin bottles (Gordons) on the nightstand, and that Ben Franklin golf dude hogging the sheets. ewwww. double-ewwww.

  19. What’s with the scar on “Pat Summit”‘s face? Did she win her position at the station in a knife fight?

    Comment by Tim — November 23, 2008 @ 6:10 pm

  20. There seem to be a lot of facial scars showing up in Milford lately. Has MFSS replaced MMES? Maybe Marty can host a telethon.

    Comment by KarenD — November 24, 2008 @ 8:14 am

  21. Look out, Marty! Evil Pat Summitt is about to activate the Tantalus Field!

    Comment by Ned Ryerson — November 24, 2008 @ 8:30 am

  22. How did Martin Luther King Jr. and Joan Crawford get the job as the producers of Marty Moon’s Public Access sports show? Really, I could see this being eternal damnation for Mommy Dearest but what did MLK do that was so terrible to warrant this punishment?
