Total Eclipse Of The Boone

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Milford Weirdos — nedryerson @ 3:23 am


Oh man,  the exciting neighborly sharing of peanut butter cookies on Beech Street was interrupted to go back to this? So what are you gonna do Steve? You apparently have a few options that might put you back on track to rebuild some self esteem, earn some money, I don’t know, say, move on with life. Or…


Just hang around and be roped into doing Gil’s work for him. Well, think about it Steve. We’ve got to get back to those peanut butter cookies.

Oh, her name is Maeve and she calls cookies biscuits! She must be pretending to be Irish to sell more thick, frothy beer at Milford’s latest new establishment, Paddy O’Furniture’s Ol’ Milford Tavern! (or some other recycled development that’s sure to be stunningly banal)

I’m holding out hope that commenter Benjamin’s prophecy comes true and we deal with a peanut allergy plot. That is, only if we get to witness an episode or two of anaphylactic shock. That would be different.


  1. Advantage, milfordfan – called the free coaching offer last post. C’mon, give us some stock tips now!!!

  2. Gil lobbying for pro bono coaching over getting a paying job based in Steve’s area of study… Rubin, this is descending into self-parody.

  3. “I think you for the biscuits, which look uncannily like a Tiddly Winks set. I bet they’re just as tasty, too!”

    “You’re welcome! And if you like those, I’ve got some pretzel sticks that oddly resemble Lincoln Logs.”

  4. I’m Anita from next door. Welcome to Beech street. Anita Visci. My family lives next door. Anita Visci of the Philadelphia Viscis. Anything? Beuler? Bueler?
    I’m Mauve. I don’t think I know you well enough to give you my last name. Thanks for the little cakes.

  5. Maeve? Who’s her husband, Arn? Alas and alack, does that make Marty Moon Mordred?

  6. Great! A new plot line is brewing! Let’s see if the Cookie Momster will discover that “Mauve from Ireland” is really Maude from Memphis, who runs the new Peircing Pagoda at Milford Mall. (Where they also sell “bootleg” mix tape cassettes that are really just copies of public domain songs lifted from the Time-Life History of Semi-Popular Music series.) Meanwhile, Gil figures he can get Steve the one-armed volunteer offensive line coach a paying job washing glasses down at Milford Pub after practice.

  7. Nope, Mauve/Maude from Memphis is selling bootleg Betamax tapes.

    “Biscuits”? They look like yellow hockey pucks to me. Has Milford got a Hockey team that’s missing some ell backed pucks??

    Gil is amazing! He always is able pawn his responsibilities on gullible Mifordans without any argument from them.Someone should give Gil an award for doing that. Come to think of it, I think that’s what all of the awards in Gil’s office are for. So, it’s safe to assume that the coach that Coach Shaw, Kaz and Skippy the angry janitor all all on Gil’s “work for free” program.

  8. Anita Visci. My family lives next door. Right now I’m living on your doorstep. Tell me all your family details and secrets, and I’ll go live with my family.

  10. New kid Terry is obviously a star athlete. How long did it take to get past his father and Anita to reach the plate of cookies held by his mother?

  11. Terry and Chip look almost identical, save for Chips hair part in the middle. And who says ‘I guess what you call a junior’? unless they’re from so far away that they dont speak English, but,.. they speak English.

  12. If their experience is with the English school system or a derivative, they might simply refer to grades rather than named years.

  13. […] Clara Bow was alleged to coach the boys at USC.) But hey, at least she’ll be making more than Steve Boone. Can any of the faithful confirm whether he ever got a raise? Will he quit once he finds out about […]
