Eyes Wide Shut

First things, first: I never got around to seeing that movie. I am simply amused by True’s mannerism wherein he apparently bashfully closes his eyes to emphasize his humble ‘aw-shucks’ approach to this crazy life we call Milford.

Other thoughts? It doesn’t appear that Tip is in fact going for a Bobby Bittman look with his hair, but never mind that as I am in awe of his stilted dialogue. Hey, should True know who Jarrod is? I guess not so it’s a good thing Tip said his full name.

What’s going on in panel two? Ah, I see we were all going on two. Now, what comes after two? According to my three year old, seven. But here in Milford, after two comes panel three and… I guess what’s happening is that Art is examining a sheaf of carpet swatches while True, who is now an elf apparently, confirms Art’s fears that Gil has no intention of exploiting True for their mutual benefit.


  1. As Emo Philips once said; “Never quarterback… in a fishnet shirt.”

  2. I foresee Milford’s offensive line either abandoning their quarterback during The Big Game or feeding him his own shoes.
    No surprise at Standish pere’s sudden apathy either. No short-term ego stroke to be gained by Standish fils’ gametime show, so why bother?

  3. Aw-shucks P1 True = 8/30 P2 True with just enough changes to the fine lines to try to pass for original.

    Jarrod, reinforcing his Doug Neidermeyerness, will be fragged in the form of lookout blocks.

    Social awkwardness is as much a part of the fabric of Milford as big wrist jewelry and the Pantheon of Hair.

  4. “Sorry I couldn’t make practice, but I have a busy schedule of couch-sitting and newspaper-holding to maintain.”

  5. Art is contemplating becoming father of the big St. Fabian WR and ruining his life too.

  6. How many parents go watch their kids practice? How many coaches would let them?

  7. False is in a funk. After all his time getting his own way through pure bluster, Gil all but threw him out of his office, and now he has nothing to do but look at a thick sheaf of photos of the replacement windows which are leaning against the wall at his feet.

    Lots of potential here. Looks like True is one of those guys everyone likes, and that poor driven, insecure Jarrod Niedemeyer is one nobody can stand. Watch for the offensive line to inexplicably go to sleep on the first blitz under full contact rules. (“Sorry, man– you said “hut-hut- FOUR” but we can’t count that high…”)

  8. I go away for 2 months and nothing changes except for the strip being about a kid with the weird name “True” instead of “Lucky”. Sheesh.
