This Week in Milford

Texting to the Max

Gil Thorp

Love Bobbys expression and hands in both panel 1 and panel 3, where he puts up 3 giant fingers to show Max Headroom how far apart they are. And Max texts about Bobby needing to show what kind of big-time coach he will be by solving Max’s deficiencies. Now Bobby looks like the normal person, where before he came off as a pompous sob. Max looks like an idiot texting someone right in front of him, but we’ll see where this leads when trhey get back to Milford.



  1. I’ll have a pompous idiocy with a side of pill pusher, please.

  2. uh, that’s exactly how the kids and I discuss at the dinner table. RoBobuddy, get with it; that’s how it’s done when you’re The Youth of America (TM).

  3. Ya think maybe a normal coach — the kind who, y’know, does his job — would notice one of his key players getting tired in late-game situations, and get him more rest earlier in the game? Why yes, a normal coach would. But not Gil Thorp!

  4. Is Gil still the coach? Haven’t seen any sign of him in a week.

  5. He’s off getting hammered again. Old Gil will return just like James Bond.

  6. What the hell is the matter with Bacon? He was announced as undersized despite having the same height and weight as probably 50% of all HS basketball players, but he runs out of gas. Undiagnosed health problem, poor conditioning, or just a tendency to whine?

    OK, we have several trajectories here. Max scores some Adderal elsewhere (a drug that would not help him in this application, incidentally) and gets caught. Does he pin it on Bobby or did Bobby get sick of this and complain to the coaches? How will Lysol fit into the plot now that she has been announced as important to it? Will she help Bobby “do the right thing?” Will success spoil Rock Hunter?
