This Week in Milford

July 30, 2015

He Said He Said

We’re well into Week 2 of True questioning everything about the college football recruiting process to anyone who will listen. Is it some kind of Jedi Mind Trick® designed to put Rodney Curtis & co. off their game, thereby raising True’s stock in the process? Or is it part of an ongoing, fourth wall-breaking Take That to the college sports machine from Neal? (Maybe we should be calling him Mary True.) Rubin certainly knows how to use the Rule of Three in his dialogue.

Well at least we were spared a scene at the Milford CC until July 30. Glad to see proper decorum is being maintained, with Gil and Kaz required to wear long pants on the course. Spares us from having to see Gil’s ankles and feet again.

edit: A non-TWIM commenter saw my reference to “sports machine” earlier and wondered why I didn’t name check George Michael. A short forehead slap later, I offer this bit of nostalgia.



  1. Geez, Gil, what a dick. Kaz – buddy, that’s a gimme.

  2. Is it me, or do people in Mfnrd eat with spoons a disproportionate part of the time?

  3. I thought same thing about that gimme. You know if that’s Gil he’s picking it up for a birdie. I’m sure Gil has a stash of Long Islands in his golf bag.

  4. “Maybe some people care too much.” Like, for instance, True’s father?

    I mean, really. True is the last person who should be shocked and dismayed by the excesses of big-time football.

  5. Just think, instead of True moping about the world being his oyster, we could have had a summer storyline about Boo following the Mystic Pranks on their summer tour. Epic!

  6. YES! Maybe it turns out that the two randos also are trailing the Planks Summer o’ Love 2015 traveling medicine show. The final throw-down would be awesome – hopefully like this

  7. I am still holding out for a return appearance by Herk the Mauler. John S is right that True (considering False’s machanominations) may be the wrong spokesman for Sanity in Sports.
