This Week in Milford

October 11, 2014

Friday Night Lights (all four of them)

October 11, 2014


Time for Milford’s (white jerseys at*) home opener and the first time the Mudlark faithful (or at least the ones that didn’t drive cross-country to Shaw) get to see The Truman Show in action. True’s reputation precedes him as the house is packed with a crowd of… four? At least the bonfire is still burning, else the field would only be lit by that guy with the Toyota truck with the light bar who’s been following the team around.

Not much room for analysis here today. Some of us thought Gil would run with a two-QB system but nothing suggests that there’s any logic behind 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 points here as he clearly doesn’t know how to strike the Heisman pose. Hopefully come Monday we’ll get some kind of postgame stats comparison to let us know who’s winning this “competition.” You know Jarrod’s keeping track of it, anyway.


*I think we had this discussion before. Maybe Milford wears white at home as some kind of good luck charm, like the Dallas Cowboys supposedly do. The obviously square-bottomed jersey collars have been drawn consistently; must be some kind of product placement though there’s no maker’s mark present. Guess Whigrub didn’t get that Nike endorsement money they were expecting.



  1. Why is Jarrod not gunner on the kick-off team yet?

  2. Wow a whole game in one day. Used to taking a week to get through a game.

  3. So Jarrod’s a showboating clown, True gets things done, and the big home opener game blips by in the blink of an eye.
    Screw it. There’s a pitcher of martinis with my name on it waiting for me.

  4. I LOVE the return of the shadow people in p3. I am especially interested in how Mfnrd gets their uniform numbers to light up like that. A good thing they do– otherwise how would we know that’s Wynn Wiley catching the pass? But other questions are biting the public:

    Who has kidnapped False Standish and holds him incommunicado?

    What is Whigrub telling us by featuring past knuckleheads Wynn Wiley and Knox Foley alongside present knucklehead Adolf Hale?

    Will success spoil Marjie Ducey?
