This Week in Milford

Couldn’t Quite Get There

October 8, 2014


One of these days, I’ll make it up to all of you for the quick posts… but not today.

Panel one: Knoxious Folly can’t get the job done… maybe he should look into other fields of opportunity, like law, where his talents may be better employed.

Panel two: another middle panel close up. These aren’t any better when they’re close ups of Marty. I mean, I guess they’re better than angtsy teenage boy close ups but that ain’t saying much.

Panel three: Hey, did we skip over the week where True grew into a towering colossus? We didn’t? What the heck? Maybe Gil shrunk? What’s going on here? How many sentences can I complete with a question mark in a row? Don’t get me started on True’s left hand…



  1. This storyline really is a good one for bringing back the old Marty Moon, gleefully fanning the flames of the QB controversy and airing every little grievance against True that Jarrod “anonymously” feeds him. I expect to be let down, but a tick of hope isn’t too unhealthy here, I would think.

  2. There’s a thought. Jarrod “anonymously” calling Marty Moon’s show to pitch fits about the carpetbagger quarterback…

  3. True is a warm weather dude who is playing in Cleveland…He saw how effective Teddy Bridgewater (from Miami) became after donning gloves at U of Louisville… Maybe True should be wearing # 5…..

  4. Gil’s looking away while True is talking to him leaves open the question of whether True went outside the white lines in calling an audible. So, no huge breakthrough after all, and the QB controversy will simmer on. I agree it might not hurt to have the old Marty Moon (pre-lobotomy) back in action. But it could be that the present writers feel Jack Berrill exhausted the “bad reporter” stories many years ago. Trying to remember when Marty went dormant. Was it after the drunken period when Gil tried to help him? And when was that? Toward the end of the Berrill period, or just after?

  5. Cold weather? Bernie Kosar went to Miami. Anyhow, it’s game 2. NE Ohio is still pretty nice until the freak November blizzard dumps 4 feet. Hey! A blizzard might wake up this story. Can’t have that, no sirree.

  6. How about a QB sneak? Get the 1st down then go for the bundle. Lousy audible, and how does True know the defense THAT well already? Hale, Hale, the QB’s here!

  7. Why does every pass look like it is being dropped out of a WWII bomber ?

    Now here is my guess on what happens next. Shaw will turn the ball over and Twue will throw a TD pass, only top have the 2 point conversion fail. Milford loses by 1.

  8. Bobby Joe is on the right track, at least according to an insight I had this morning reading GT at breakfast: the goal of the current story is to run up as many successive anticlimactic moments as possible.

  9. Gil has that “Oh, is that what you thought mother^T^#^#^#^????” look in panel 3.

    As far as Marty goes, his stirring up controversy goes nowhere. The last thing I recall was him calling Cully a murderer or something.

  10. […] the game on the line, how did you slow down when you were wide open to make it look like True overthrew you? I’m really more interested in that, since if I make True look bad enough, I’ll get my […]
