More Mouseketeer Roll Call for Gil’s benefit. Hey y’all, look! L’il Jaxon Kiser had a growth spurt and came out for basketball! He’s playing keep-away with some other toddler.

Who the hell keeps practice stats? Bobby may not be coaching material but he may have a space in Marty’s crate as his statistician.

Football introduced us to skinny speedster Max Ortiz; now there’s another Max – Max Bacon! I’m sure the jokes will write themselves but I’m just not up to it this morning. The only thing I can think of is fans of Milford’s opponents singing this when Max misses shots:



  1. God don’t confuse Gil with a spreadsheet that’s way too high tech for him.

  2. THE Maxwell Bacon? That one dude with his right arm surgically modified to look like the FIFA World Cup Trophy? Wrong sport maybe, but what a baller.

  3. Perhaps Maxwell Bacon is famous for playing basketball without a right elbow?

  4. “Max Bacon” must be a menu item at some fast food joint, right? Hardee’s, perhaps?

    And I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought a spreadsheet was a computer thing. Can a sheaf of papers really be a spreadsheet?

  5. The name “Max Bacon” may well be a lift from Hardee’s. Me, I’m trying to work in “Six Degrees of Bobby Howry.” Will it turn out that his mother used to date the great-grandson of the guy who delivered James Naismith’s morning paper?

  6. Well we do have the former lead singer of GTR, a British actor, a Missouri attorney/judge/legislator, or the mayor of Smyrna, GA, he in a fracas with the local school board, so take your pick.
