And Leisl Was Her Name-o

So Andrea Lis gets her stuff packed by Tilden’s Wes Unseld and Lysol is there to scoop it up and shoot without thinking. No total eclipse of the net here but a basket, so we’re told. Then a dance flash mob breaks out (this is kind of a thing in Milford). But there’s something a bit off-character about this mob.

Doesn’t Lysol wear #15? The #15 in the flash mob is taller and doesn’t have such a long ponytail. It may not be Lysol as her number was obscured in yesterday’s strip, and it’s possible that the Lady Mudlarks don’t wear the same uniform numbers home and away. (For that matter, isn’t #7 an illegal uniform number in high school basketball? This should’ve resulted in a technical foul on the Lady Mudlarks and we might not be talking about Lysol’s game-winning basket at all.) Maybe the travel budget for road games in South Carolina ate into the equipment budget? If Milford had an equipment manager worth their salt they might stay on top of these things.

But nooooo! Milford’s basketball manager (for the boys, anyway) fancies himself a coach, statistician, and brand/image consultant. The worst upshot of this victory is that it will somehow legitimize Bobby Howry’s coaching ability and his schtick will only get worse from here. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day – and probably doesn’t have to be asked three times to fetch the coach a towel.


  1. I’m rooting for the Lady Mudlarks to win the state title. From the looks of the football trophy, I’m guessing the girls’ basketball trophy is a giant vagina.

  2. And a Toni Basil music video breaks out. “Oh, Leisl, you’re so fine. You’re so fine you blow my mind. Hey, Leisl!”

  3. You learn something new every day. I never noticed that HS basketball numbers involve no digit larger than five, and just now learned why. In case others have been as unobservant as I, the reason is that the referee signals fouls to the sideline by showing fingers, twice for two digit numbers. Guess it’s good I did not play basketball– none of my uniform numbers from other school sports would have been legal.
