We Tie For First Loser

June 19, 2014


So after somehow restoring Lucky’s confidence in his best tell-don’t-show fashion, Gil turns his mad motivational skills to the rest of the team.  So what does tying for second in the Valley get you? A place in the playdowns? A higher seeding in the conference tournament? A cup of coffee at Wawa (if you also have $1.39)?

At least the pep talk had some effect on Holler Boy there. Do we know who Holler Boy is? Is he southpaw junkballer Paul Dillon, the soon-to-be-beneficiary of Lucky’s flashing leather?

Just noticed that the Milford boys are wearing snapback caps. Cheapskate move, Gil. Bet he budgeted for fitted New Era 5950s and funded his liquor cabinet with the difference.



  1. I kind of expected snapback hats, actually. Milford is a tank town, you know.

  2. So, is Milford gonna go waltzin’-a-Tilden?

  3. Now we have the explanation for Lucky’s idiotic theories about luck, and so on. Putting on a snapback hat instantly lowers your IQ by forty points.

  4. How thankful do you think Gil is for Holler Boy cutting him off in the middle of his speech? I have to think Holler Boy knew that the only way to break up the awkward pause when Gil inevitably forgets whatever inspirational point he was trying to make was to just scream something vaguely hortatory and hope that they could just go play ball while Gil ‘rests his eyes’ in the dugout.
