This Week in Milford

That takes care of that

Moving along in the plot after 2 (Two!) games, we find Marty interviewing Gil on the possible QB controversy thats been brewing so long a microwave couldnt heat it up. Gil says its not a controversy but a competition, and thats a good thing. Yeah, as long as you’re winning games in the meantime. Does he go with a starter and a finisher from here on out, or do they settle it where they should, in practice? Again, here’s another example of Milfords scattershot approach to everything, whether its coaches who show up mid-season, janitors who work with players privately on their jump shot, ex-players who jump in with 1 arm to teach golf, old men who whisper advice on hitting from the stands, ex-students running on the field to give medical advice/treatment, or players mothers deciding what position their son should play. Hey gang, Gil shoulda been doing all of that stuff, but no. The inmates have been running the asylum for years out here, why should it change now?
Marjie Ducey will write a column on this QB issue, and Gil will use that as a basis for his decision. Of course that might be his best idea.



  1. Gil is damn creepy in P3, there’s just no way around it. If he had finished it with “gooooooooooood”…..

  2. I think Marjie could help a lot of things. Start with an in depth interview at BAR and see where it goes. Marjie was looking a little demoralized in her last appearance and an oil change might be just what they both need. And except for Adolf Hale, the team would like the relaxed practice that would follow the next day.

  3. If Milford High was a university and not a high school, we might call this “a lack of institutional control.”

  4. […] it. Another example of Gil’s “coaching” by letting others dictate the action. “Competition is good, especially when I don’t have to think about making it happen.” Jarrod loses on style […]
