This Week in Milford

January 16, 2016

Kenzie Lays the Smack! Down



It’s Clash of the Titans under the Milford rafters as Cherry Creek’s chippy #45 throws a hip check into Kenzie “The Big Unit” Hanley.* Scoreboard malfunction in P2? Score’s not gonna matter for much longer once the elbows start flying. Thursday’s observation by billytheskink is spot on, as an elbow to the midsection causes Exploding Eye Syndrome. What kind of weird streak is that along #45’s jawline? I’m hard pressed to figure out where that motion begins and ends.

Finally, Kenzie Hulks out, flexes her delts and jams the heel of her hand into #45’s funny bone. It’s about to get real in the paint: tune in on Monday when we see if this turns into an out-and-out brawl.



* Randy Johnson was who first came to mind when I saw Kenzie’s #51, although with her style of play maybe the 51 is meant to pay homage to Dick Butkus?



  1. Kenzie “the Terminator” Hanley.

  2. I think she is, in effect, counterpunching– turning at attempted elbowing by the opponent into a funnybone incident.

  3. I’m no martial artist, but I think Big Mac-Kenzie will bust her hand if she keeps open-palming like that.

    It’s all physics and leverage; drive thru the heel of your hand, Mac, not the palm.

  4. The drawing makes it hard to be sure, but she appears to be dead on that ulnar nerve, though if she’s hitting with the base of her thumb instead of the heel of her hand she’s asking for trouble herself. In any case, leave it to a rugby player to hit ’em where it hurts while making it look accidental. Look for Monday to open with an injury timeout and a drama club scene from the Cherry Pit coach.

  5. I bet Kenzie’s rugby coaches will be pleased as punch that she’s become the designated enforcer for the Mudlarks, when she’s supposed to be taking time off to heal up.

  6. Fellow TWIM bloggers, I have been marooned on a desert island… well, a desert anyway. Maybe more of a desert in the sense that I won’t be able to post this week. If anyone can step in, it would be appreciated. There is a minor chance I will be able to get to Wednesday’s update but Tuesday won’t be coming from me.

  7. Hey there gents, I can step up on Monday for Ned. I’ll metapost later in the day if things go well enough for me to step in on Tuesday as well, but will defer to Ned or Rob if they’d care to do it.
