This Week in Milford

January 14, 2016

Do the 45


Cherry Creek’s chippy play continues unabated (at least for now) and exposes the woodenness of the Lady Mudlarks’ power forward. It’s only a matter of moments before Mimi releases the Kenzie. Will young Tricky Dick the zebra (and he’s more Tricky Dick than Alan Mayne ever was) let her play too?

Sparse crowd for the Milford girls’ home opener. Where’s Ken Brown & co.? Cameo today by Sign Man Person who expresses his appreciation for motor racing legend Vic Elford.

Musical inspiration for today’s post title:



  1. Or the sign could be for former Michigan forward Rich Relford. He looked like Ned the wino in the Black Jesus episode of “Good Times”.

  2. JT, given the Michigan-centric aspects of this strip, I’ll give you that one.

  3. What sort of appendage has Mimi sprouted in panel 3?

  4. Today we learn that a thrown elbow, perfectly placed just below the sternum, can explode an eye.

    Also, I only come here for the Ned the wino references, and I knew that some day my patience would be rewarded.

  5. I’ll be happy if we get about four weeks of hard fouls by Cherry Creek followed by Kenzie cleaning house, leaving a trail of bodies in her wake. Curtain! Time for baseball season!

  6. The sound WUD! is especially promising, as it’s the same one that appeared when Herk the Mauler took out the punk in the sub shop with an elbow to the head.

  7. Yep, Ned the wino, SCTV and Bobby Bittman, they’re all here. I’m still waiting for Chongo references from the “Treasure Island” series . “Uh oh! CHONGO!!”

  9. … the xiphisternum bone connects to the… eye bone. Who knew?

    No, it’s: Milford Babes!

  10. metacomment for TWIM editorial staff: I will be unavailable to post this coming Monday. Hopefully, one o’ y’all can sub in and deal out some WUD-snark!

    Seems like I should be up on Ned the Wino, but I have no recollection of him, despite my years as a devoted viewer of Good Times. Maybe that episode advised “parental discretion” and my parents exercised it.
