This Week in Milford

July 10, 2014

Summer vacations over, Gil

The scouts see – a Milford coach on the premises, who must be Kaz, though we havent seen him since he was pow-wowing with the JV coaches last week. I guess they really are strict about this stuff. And we have a call to Gil about this violation, even though we thought Kaz wasnt really coaching. Still developing the plot here, so I will anxiously await further developments, including possible forfeit of the 1 game the team won; what a shame that would be.



  1. I am simply fascinated by the whole ‘now he’s wearing the sunglasses, now he isn’t’ game going on from strip to strip.

  2. So these guys are some sort of roving compliance officers, making sure everything in the 7-7 football world is by the book? Wow, I didn’t see that coming. Gil shitfaced on the couch in the middle of the afternoon is another story.

    Wouldn’t it be a fresh and interesting storyline for Gil to have to admit that he’s in way over his head and that his plan to just casually lend his (or Kaz’s) name to a venture while sidestepping any responsiblity was a major miscalculation?

  3. Could be as simple as having seen Milford players, they want to talk to the Milford coach.
    Try the high school.

  4. Maybe Gil needs to meet the guy who is donating a liver for the still undisclosed need for a liver transplant. Good to see Gil isn’t a quitter as he pounds another High Life. What a swinging guy!

  5. “Gil, there’s someone here you need to meet. He looks like a scout or something and seems to know more about this game we are playing than anyone else here, so maybe you can get him to do some free coaching for you.”

    P3: remember Gil’s drinking schedule. Bloodys, mimosas and Irish coffee in the morning, followed by hard cider and hard lemonade late morning thru the afternoon, beer with meals, and then the Captain or JD all night. If it is after game time, that is a hard cider in Gil’s hand.

  6. I think we have to extend Gil some slack on the sauce. Dealing with self-important dipshits like Jarrod Hale (not to mention Knox Foley) is stressful. Why is it, I wonder, that consecutive assholes– KNOX Foley and Jarrod HALE– bear in part the names of heroes from the Revolution? Will Gates Thompson and Herbie Marion be next?

  7. I thought yesterday’s P3 was Gil until this strip reminded me that Gil spends his summers getting sauced. The kid looks a LOT like him though. Is it possible Gil use all the time he’s not coaching to visit the lonely women of Milford? That, or Dipsy Do remains the hair care product of choice for both Milford’s debauched gadabouts and its teenage gasbags.

  8. Yeah, Ned, I’m kind of on the fence about the roving compliance officers. First thing I thought of was

    Still I’m starting to think Older guy is trying to get younger guy onto a team, likely the Milford scrubs. Shaggy will immediately engage in a quarterback battle with douchey Jarrod Hale a/k/a Gil Jr.

  9. Damn, teenchy– you’re giving me flashbacks to that golf plot three or four years ago. The crazy father who named his kids for golf courses, and improved his kid’s lie in tournaments? Could this be another “pushy and meddlesome father” story?

  10. Yeah, when Shady McShades said demerit, it threw me. He could just be keeping a personal tally, but its a weird thing to say out loud to people who have no idea what your personal integrity index is and why you’re sharing it.
