This Week in Milford

March 6, 2013

Why Do You Think They Call It A Media “Blitz”?


We’ve secretly replaced several Mudlarks with unfrozen cavemen. Let’s see if Gil Thorp can tell the difference.

So Bobby Ottewill saw da boid, flipped out and started shooting up Oakwood’s gym. The violent onslaught continued as the Oakwood faithful were forced to flee.
Snap out of it Marty, it’s a throwaway basketball game!
Oh, nevermeind. So Gil, ready to name your starting nine for spring?


It’s nice that Marjie and Mimi are comfortable hanging out in Mimi’s office, discussing Gil’s “boys” and the Thorps’ collective issues with digestive enzymes.* (Maybe Mimi is referring to the Thorp kids, who for continuity sake have been converted into lesions of the mucous membrane?) Well, who can tell what’s going on? Both teams are cramming multiple games into the last desperate days because so much precious time was devoted to angsty deliberations over the peacock.

Oh, and one more thing: Playdowns? Playdowns?! You gotta be HRONKing my FOOZLE!

*Sounds like a job for Gil’s proctologist!



  1. Annual playdown tease… It’s March, it’s probably not happening for either team.

  2. 3/5 P2: Reminiscent of the wing-t, Gil has his guards trick the defense into doing the wave.

    This has been answered more than once. It’s regional, like Canadianish. Dictionary is your friend.

    It’s not like going roadside after eating from vendos.

  4. Yes, “playdown” is Canadian, and yes, there is a Milford, Ontario. But there is no Oakwood or New Thayer nearby. Be alert, though, to games against Picton, Belleville, or Trenton…

  5. Playdowns? Playdowns?! is a reference to the often quoted Jim Mora rant about his team’s chances of making the playoffs.

    (fun fact: Jim Mora was 0-6 as a head coach in playoff games)

  6. Not entirely true, Ned – he won a couple USFL playoff games with Philadelphia, including beating my Chicago Blitz in overtime after getting their butt kicked for 3 quarters. Watched that game in my college dorm in summer school. Being a glutton for punishment, I found a tape of it online from Japan (yeah, Japan!) and still watch that game about once a year.

  7. March 5, panel 1: Gil’s pinky is distorted; looks like he is an alien from The Invaders.
