This Week in Milford

Its a true sprain

Well I was right on about the injury being a sprained ankle, of which there are many degrees. Some just require ice and rest, and others need a more involved rehab. The small ligaments need time to heal themselves regardless. Looks like Trues is somewhere in the middle. If he rehabs on schedule, he should be good to go by September. And the way Milford works, the bonfire is around mid-September, so give him another 2 weeks or so. That is, of course, if he decides to go to Milford. I think its rather late to still be deciding which school to go to, and I would urge him and his father to get that one checked off the list pronto. If he’s that good, he should be effective at any school in the Valley, and that school should be the immediate favorite to win the conference. Again, he still needs to go to practice, and work with his teammates, and he hasnt been doing any of that this summer. Even the cheerleaders are getting more exercise at their summer camps. Apparently he’s been throwing, so his arm is in decent shape. Nice of his dad to come see him at the doctors; it crossed my mind that True might try to hide the injury from him, as sometimes will happen, but the sensible approach has prevailed. So the next order of business is finalizing a school choice, then slowly working his way back to football activities.



  1. Robmize has checked all the boxes and I can add little but emphasis. For about the third time in a week, True and False have diverged on the importance of something bearing on football. I do think it’s possible True just wants to be a normal kid and that False’s campaign to prepare him for the minors (I’m sorry– I meant the Big Ten) has worn thin for him.

  2. “Throwing regimen”? Have we seen the kid throw a ball yet? Pretty much all we’ve seen him do is sit – in a hotel, on bleachers, at the Coffee Cantina, in a rental car, at Janet’s Diner, and now in a hospital. When he’s not sitting he’s falling.

  3. I see the “doctor” is wearing PJs and a nice robe. It’s important to be comfortable at work.

  4. John S, the doc is wearing hospital issue “scrubs.” They do save your nice suits when people come into the ER bleeding, as they tend to do…

  5. Hey Vaganova — the Big Ten is “the minors”. Them’s fighting words. I challenge you to an Internet duel.
