Panel One: Gil distracts Brady Syndrome Patient Zero with inane puffery while deftly swiping the tip that True left for diner waitress.

Panel Two: The melange of metaphors gets kinda abstract as the silhouettes push through the closed door of opportunity that is Milford High School athletics.

Panel Three: Tom Brady won the Super Bowl? Four times you say? Huh, I guess I must have missed that. I pretty much stopped following the Patriots after Tony Eason washed out and I just never imagined there would ever be any news out of what has always been one of the sleepier NFL teams out there. Goes to show you learn something new every day I suppose.



  1. Never get tired of watching this. Go PATS!

  2. I got my hopes up for some sensible talk about being a f’ball player, not just a thrower, or warning Tru to prep for a weaker line. Never get your hopes up.

  3. Better than Steve Grogan syndrome, which involves appearing in Tecmo Super Bowl and throwing every pass as high and slowly as possible while hoping Mosi Tatupu runs under the ball before the other team’s defensive backs do. Milford’s had its share of quarterbacks like that…

  4. “Or, how about me? I had an insanely great quarterback drop into my lap for no reason. We won one playoff game because the other team couldn’t handle rain, and another when the other team all caught the flu. Milford scored the championship touchdown when you made a block I never drew on a chalkboard. I had less to do with that trophy than anybody, Does that make me any less great?”
    “Yeah, coach, we’ve been meaning to talk to you about that …”

  5. “What I’m saying is that you’re eventually going to have to deflate your balls to have a chance at being a great player.”

  6. Yes, Westview! I was thinking Gil could have chosen a different QB than Brady myself, especially since the Patriots’ pattern of cheating DOES bring their record into question.

  7. SUch tiny, tiny little bills!

  8. Nice of Mr. Rubin to sidestep the thing everybody’s been talking about since that fourth Super Bowl win: “If he hadn’t had the footballs deflated, would he be less great?”

  9. People minimize that deflation stunt, but as one who used to break up passes or intercept them, I can testify that a beanbag is a lot easier to hold onto than a baseball. In a tight game a dirty trick like that could easily prove decisive. Yes, the Stupor Bowl was a rout, but a lot of earlier games were not.

  10. So, Milford has taken to using Monopoly money as their fiat currency? As Ol’Froth points out, that’s some small currency; both size and denomination. Maybe Gil keeps a wallet-full just to occasionally stooge on the tip. That fits.

  11. Those are smaller than UK pound notes, which largely went out of circulation thirty years ago.

  12. Gil’s adept at passing Monopoly money. “Hey, it’s from my rich Uncle Pennybags!”
