Nobody Likes Limp Bacon

Wannabe Coach Bobby Howry knows the Milford lingo cold – and, for once, has a valid point. (Okay, maybe twice if you count his shoot-without-thinking advice to Lysol.) Bacon got his, uh, bacon handed to him by All-League Antoine Reed. No shame in that if it’s a teachable moment.

But where is Max going with his plea for help? Does he think Bobby’s gonna become his S&C coach too? Or just lead him to a Milford pop-up business specializing in bad tattoos pirated DVDs dietary supplements? Max needs a taste of what Silent John Pascoe and Tip Nunn were cookin’ for Saad Shamoun.

As the snow falls silently on the road from Jefferson to Milford, it should be fun to watch the Mudlark School Bus – which looks like a mashup of My Neighbor Totoro‘s Catbus and Racing President Teddy Roosevelt – make its way home. More fun, maybe, than watching Bobby try to mentor Bacon.



  1. If Max is beat up and worn out after — what, two games? — he needs a lot more than Bobby’s help.

  2. Max is going to become the three-point king and assist leader.

    I’m still waiting for B-how to be named to the team.

  3. I concur, John. He needs something much more low-impact. Does Milford have a curling team?

  4. What a wuss! Two games into the season and he is burned out. Maybe his brand is wussyboy.
