This Week in Milford

Monday Morning Coffee Klatch

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 4:00 am


It looks like Gil ducked the meeting with True and instead sent the mission statement spewing GilBot 2000. Maybe he really will open up about the team…

…We also have a this raging hemorrhoid named Nathan Hale or something who thinks he’s the next Tom Brady. I haven’t really watched him play much, but odds are he probably sucks and is full of hot air. We don’t a kicker yet, but I drive past this soccer field every once in a while and I’ve been keeping my eye out. Defensively, uh, well I think we still have that Irish kid that led the league in personal fouls last season, or was that two seasons ago? Kid, I’ve been doing this for a long time, this shit tends to run together. I’ll probably just make the linemen play both ways, but it usually doesn’t matter since nothing the d-line does ever really matters much, unless some hulking kid shows up in my office socially stigmatized, with a history of violence. I have my feelers out in the guidance counselor’s office for head cases like this.

As far as game planning goes, I’ve got Coach Shaw working out in the equipment shed with a dry erase board and fake bootleg DVDs of sports movies formulating this year’s “new wrinkles”.

What else do you want to know, Trevor?



  1. Tomorrow Gil levels with True.

    “Look kid, I’ve a got a good gig here. Let’s not screw it up by giving parents and fans expectations…”

  2. “Well, kid, if you’re looking for a place where they don’t take sports very seriously, or expect very much, then Look No Further.”

  4. Honestly, I can’t blame Gil. I had to think a bit before I could remember what this year’s baseball plot was. I like to take Gil at his word in panel three and assume that he, in fact, isn’t too sure if any of his kids are in multiple sports.
