Another day, another egotist being a jerk in Milford. What else is new? Maybe I should try to look at the strip from another perspective, like that of that Navy blimp coming in to dock at NAS Lakehurst. Nah, I’m still having trouble with space and time in the Thorpiverse.
SPACE: Jarrod is 5’11”, yet stands nearly eye-to-eye with True, who stands nearly eye-to-eye with Gil. Is True only about 6’0″ to 6’1″ and Gil maybe 6’2″ tops? If there’s that little difference in height between the QBs then maybe Rubin shouldn’t have made such a big deal of it. I’m also still having trouble with the Mudlarks practicing in shorts; they’ve been doing it since August 25. Shouldn’t these guys be in full pads by now?
TIME: Jarrod only interviewed with Marjie yesterday. How far forward have we leapt today? True probably grabbed the Milford paper off Art’s stack of papers at the Central City Hilt (they still live there, right?) and got it confused with another, like the Valley Times or some such. Of course, when this is all the press you’ve gotten compared to your competition’s scads of YouTube clips, you guard it as fiercely as you can.
I don’t know who’s going to win the quarterback competition but so far, Jarrod’s the hands-down winner of the Douchebag Trophy. True’s “I just want to win” comes off a bit insincere given his ambitions but Hale’s hubris is setting himself up for a huge fall… like maybe off a curb.
