Coming Wight Back to Wynn Wiley

Remember 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 more direct route by sucking up to making her brother Wynn look good. Wynn’s more used to catching bigger (and rounder) balls, so he’s taken by surprise when True throws him one of the souvenir mini footballs the cheerleaders tossed out to the crowd at halftime. On the next possession True switches back to a regulation size ball and Wynn easily makes the catch.

Today’s strip is more notable by who’s missing: Art Standish, who’d be chagrined that True had to throw to a multi-sport athlete who clearly lacks his son’s dedication to his craft*, and Jarrod, who’d be pitching a hissy to get back in the game since True didn’t lead the team to a score on his first drive. I suspect Jarrod’s plotting to tell True to get Wynn to set him up with Wendy. Wynn will go ballistic on True, injuring him and giving Jarrod back his starting job.


*Where the heck is Art, anyway? Did Gil banish him to the cornfield?



  1. And another contrast noted. True’s got a big ol’ (rather effective) charm offensive going, while Jarrod… well, Jarrod’s just offensive.
    The Amalgamated Geegaws office in Milford must be working 3 solid shifts, forcing Standish pere to never leave the office.

  2. It ours strange that Art has disappeared. When Twue was only holding the clipboard it would have been an ideal time for him to be raising a fuss. Now that Twue is seeing more action it seems like there is less reason for him to make an apearance. It will be interesting to see how he will resurface.

  3. Oh, by all means, yes. Let’s re-introduce the loathsome Wynn Wylie to the strip. Between the callbacks to Tip Nunn and Knox Foley and the introduction of Jarrod Hale, we might be approaching some sort of Milfordian adolescent male critical mass here.

  4. The answer to Art’s disappearance is clear, explained in segments by the three posts above. With Wynn, Knox, AND Harold Hale on stage, we are already exceeding the OSHA limit for the permissible number of assholes in one place at one time. But False (Art– it’s been long enough to forget his name) will resurface, perhaps as soon as the dustup over who the next game starter will be in light of the game in progress.

  5. And we crawl along, as they make a big first down after 2 possessions – whoopee! True hasnt closed the deal yet either, and I thought for sure this game would end today, but it may be Wednesday yet. They need at least 3 scores, with conversions, and if True is throwing the ball sideways like in P2, no wonder everyones got stone hands. We can tell True’s playing with house money the way he keeps everyones chin up when they fail to execute the plays.

  6. Robmize, been thinking the same thing. The QBs are not making it easy for Gil. Is it possible that we will see Gil actually think, agonize, consult with Mimi, Kaz, and the guys at BAR before reaching a decision? Given that this is only October 4th and the football season extends until a year from Christmas, I am pretty sure we are in at most Act II of a five act show. Ten years ago Marty Moon would be inciting every form of controversy, but since his lobotomy the responsibility for the inevitable shit show falls to Harold Hale, False, and others to be named later.

  7. “Banish to the cornfield”–nice Twilight Zone reference!
