This Week in Milford

It’s On!

Filed under: Marty Moon, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 4:39 am


It will come down to a clash of the bitterest rivals of the Valley Conference, Milford and Valley Tech. As we can see, the Valley Tech side is not above airing grievances and making it personal in “the press”. It looks like Valley Tech is supposed to be the Bizarro Milford in this regard. The coach is petty, vindictive and he gives the Valley Tech version of Marty Moon all the smack he can handle. Look for the rest of this candid interview of Morty Maine’s Valley Prep Smackdown airing on WVTF radio (which may or may not be wholly comprised of another middle aged man located in a basement).

Would Bizarro Marty have a backwards spelling? Noom Ytram? Maybe something in an anagram? Yon Marmot? The question is, does Valley Tech have its own Marjie Ducey? Is her name Juicy Reamed, Yecud Eijram or something else entirely?

Did Milford “steal” the quarterback? The evidence is flimsy at best. That’s all the time we have for sincere Gil Thorp analysis.



  1. In panel 1, we see Milford celebrating victory over an imaginary foe. In panel 2, we see that Marty Moon likes to draw fake computer graphics on whiteboards to make himself feel relevant. And in panel 3, we get the foreshadowing of True getting a torn ACL from a dirty tackle by Valley Tech.
    Oops, there goes the playdowns. And True’s college scholarship.

  2. I really hope that’s former Milford player/broadcaster Paul Strange interviewing the Valley Tech coach. Rubin put Paul on a bus back in 2004 or so, I think just to set up the plot point where Moon gets arrested on air and Von Haney covers the broadcast for WDIG, and we haven’t seen him since.

  3. I for one am missing Juicy Reamed’s incisive interviews, but at least we are starting to see a little more of the iceberg here. VT’s dirty play– and VT’s fans showing up with carpetbags, etc– will cause Mfnrd, led by Jethro Hale, to rally around True. Not sure if they will manage that tie for second, but this year that seems not to be the point.

  4. There’s only one raspberry beret-wearing Marjie Ducey, and she will always be our Milford Star.

  5. “Juicy Reamed,” huh? And y’all thought I was trolling for pageviews! (Well played, Ned.)

    So what part of not feeling right constitutes “stealing”? VT coach is just ticked that his sucking up to Art didn’t pay off. So now he’s given Milford some prime bulletin board material. Expect a slugfest Friday night!

  6. in panel 3, this valley tech HS football player looks more a beer bellied 40 something…

  7. Agreed, Dood.

    “We love you Marjie, oh yes we dooo,
    “We love you Marjie, and we’ll be true…”

    Rowdyman, I think the guy in panel 3 IS a beer-bellied 40 year old, the Valley Tech coach whose excesses in trying to “sign” True led True to choose low-pressure Mfnrd.
