This Week in Milford

Maxwell Bacon, Qu’est-ce que c’est?


Whatever Max was futilely leaping for yesterday, it’s implied to be the direct cause of Milford’s defeat. Was he injured, or did Gil bench him for being out of control? No matter, Max will shrug it off by rubbing a ciabatta roll on his head.

A little Bacon, a little coffee – sounds like the beginning of a trip to the Waffle House (which I doubt Milford has, probably being too far north). Nah, more like Kenzie wants to drag Max to the Coffee Cantina then back to her cave for a bit of snu-snu. Interesting that she’s gotten over her fright of Max asking her out. I imagine she’ll explain why soon, but for now it’s nice to think that Max’s emulation of her on-court behavior showed her he cares.

metapost: A moment of silence for Jack Elrod, who featured balls of another kind and who, depsite generating years of snark fodder, was a sincere supporter of wildlife conservation and outdoor safety.



  1. Aww, good ol’ Jack. The Grim Reaper was too much for the Right Fist Of Justice, and the Elrod Bubble shall now be forever empty.

    As for the strip: Nice reverse-caveman vibe we’re getting. Although, if Kenzie likes it rough, then Maxwell had better be damn sure there’s a safe word.

    Jack Elrod – given the recent MT story arc (if one dares call it that), I wonder if his will stated to scatter his ashes in a fist o’ dynamite?

  3. Kenzie is going to put him over her shoulder and take him for coffee before a shower and a rah rah speech from Gil? Gil usually has a few shots in the coaches office before he collects his thoughts and money from local ham n eggers who fix high scool games. Good thing he sat Bacon. They may have won and covered.

  4. Harmless cup of coffee, or carry him out over her shoulder? To paraphrase the dialog between Geena Davis and the kid in A League of Their Own, “Can’t we do both?”

  5. […] the artwork thus far in this arc, but Kenzie’s earrings have grown and added detail since the beginning of this date. By the weekend they should be positively blinging. Almost makes ya wonder if this is […]
