This Week in Milford

No Harm, No Poul

January 29, 2015


The dialogue in the first two panels almost forms the first two lines of a haiku, something we haven’t done around here in a while. So let’s give it a try today:

Ken Brown steps up on D
And gets hot from the corner
Streaky Elrod ball

Is he the same guy
Bobby Howry tried to coach?
Ken Brown’s hair grows fast!

Max still has arms up
When play has passed right by him
Will this be his brand?

Milford wins by five
But why does scoreboard list “POUL”?
Whigham can draw “F”s

Game is behind us
Let’s get out of Jefferson
Time for BBQ!



  1. Ken Brown: diversion
    for Malik, stone cold killah.
    A-Reed; R. I. P.

  2. Good stuff. If I remember correctly from my JUCCO creative writing class Haikus are only written once a day. You are way ahead of the curve.

  3. Best ideas for
    Haiku already taken
    Will try limerick

    Ken Brown’s defense controlling the lane
    From the corner his shot makes it rain
    I’m quite thankful a lot
    To break from the brand plot
    Since we did that whole shtick with Doyle Dane

  4. Are we to assume
    that Malik McCall smothered
    all-league Antoine Reed?

  5. Assume? Be assured
    He went softly, in the way

  6. That Bac~Os will not

  7. What’s left? A sonnet?
    I’ll get right upon it.

    (Yeah, right.)

    Actually, I’m incapable of creativity at the moment because I’m transfixed by Ken Brown’s freak arm in panel 2. Call the orthopod, stat!

  8. Don’t you mean “orthopedist”, John?

  9. How come Ken Brown is shooting a snowball? The size of the ball changes in each panel.

  10. So when a player gets pouled, does he get a fenalty shot?

  11. A shot from the corner to win
    Makes the ride from Milford a swim
    If Howry has his way
    He’ll coach the team someday
    And Marjie can write for the TWIM.

  12. FoolyRain: “Orthopod” is doctor slang for “orthopedist.” I’m just gettin’ jiggy widdit.

  13. […] assume Ken since he’s getting slacked off – which makes absolutely no sense considering Ken getting hot is what led Milford to beat Jefferson in their […]
