The Receivers You Have

I believe it was Donald Rumsfeld who said “You go to war with the receivers you have, not the receivers you might want or wish to have at a later time.”  Or something like that. In any case, none of that registers with Art who wants the Hershey kid on the Mudlarks so that True can throw to him. Implicit in this statement is that Art has resigned himself to go along with True’s desire to play for Milford.

How’s Art gonna react when he finds out Keegan is a multi-sport athlete? True obviously doesn’t care; he sees Keegan’s layup skills as a bonus for all the times he’ll sail the ball over his receiver’s head. Maybe True wants Keegan at Milford to serve as his wingman as he pursues Wendy Wiley.

Kaz is clearly on to Art’s shenanigans; I’m guessing Gil filled him in over Long Island Iced Teas back at the pool. It’ll be fun to see if Kaz, who’s already on the record (well, sort of) as wanting to see True come to Milford, will try to get the wheels turning to get Keegan in a Mudlark uni as well. So much potential tension here – between True and his dad, True and Nathan Hale, Keegan and the Wileys, Gil and Kaz. I can’t wait to see how it all fizzles out over the course of a week.

Today’s TWIM post is brought to you by “Tires” – the official tire supplier of BACKYARD TIRE FIRE!




  1. I still want to know how “they” got those tires over the flag pole. Were we ever told?

  2. Panel 1: I think one thing Kaz will like about True is they are both fans of the “Cargo” look in slacks and shorts.

  3. Panel three is creeping me out, especially with the way Art is jutting out his jaw like that….

  4. False creeps me out from the start. Kaz will politely throw him out.

  5. Why does True not wear a “CAM WALKING BOOT”????? That’s standard treatment nowadays….. Milford’s orthopaedic clinic has not yet heard of this technology….

  6. Yeah, they suspected my wife had a sprain and then detected it was broken after the swelling went down and it was a boot all the way. She was only on crutches the first day when the urgent care clinic told her to keep weight off it until she saw an orthopedist.

  7. Of course, expecting state-of the-art orthopedic devices might be asking a big much. True doesn’t even have the same type of crutches that he did a few strips ago.

  8. Why does Milford’s 7-on- 7 team have a St Fabe player. Couldn’t find seven guys from Milford to play this “Hot” sport? What does False expect Kaz to do? Maybe he can threaten his family with bodily harm if he doesn’t tranfer. Maybe that’s what they do on the “Coast”.

  9. Now how the hell does False get the teams mixed up? Milford isnt playing an intersquad game, its a tourney with Other Schools in it. Hershey is playing for His school, defended by a Milford player. How will he ever tell the difference when its 11 on 11 if he cant now?? They have chimps smarter then that.

  10. Moon Mullins@ 7: True had to send the old crutches back to the Little White House in Warm Springs.

  11. […] back in August when I suggested True wanted Keegan Hershey as a teammate to make him look good to Wendy Wiley? Well that never came to pass, so True has decided to take a […]
