This Week in Milford

The Secret of the Free Throws


Time flies in this strip when Rubin wants it to. Marcie was a good head shorter than Kenzie a week ago yesterday and now she’s almost the same height sitting down? Long torso, short legs I guess, or else she’s taking the same meds Maxwell Bacon takes to shape-shift when he’s around Kenzie.

Speaking of Bacon: is Kenzie having the little eyeball explosion because she’s gonna have to admit that her boyfriend suggested the underhand free throws? Maybe there’s a USA Rugby prohibition against dating or something. Or is it that she’s nervous about exposing the fact that Mimi Thorp hasn’t coached her a bit this season beyond showing her YouTube clips? If that’s the case, no big deal: Everyone in Milford already knows the Thorps get others to do their coaching for free.



  1. “You’re a world-class athlete, but enough about that — you look funny shooting free throws.”

  2. It’s been 10-11 months since we last gazed upon Ms. Juicey. Maybe it’s just me, but she hasn’t aged all that well. Seems to have that same botox lip thing as General Leia.

  3. I know high school kids can mine drama from darn near anything, but this still seems unlikely.

  4. I have to agree. Marjie is not looking as sharp as usual. I suspect she is suffering from TTD and from not hearing on the resumes she has been sending out.

    Kenzie’s exploding eye may be from concern that the story will end up being all about her relationship with Max instead of about basketball. She has probably seen enough of Marty Moon to know that in Mfnrd, this is a reasonable anxiety to feel.

    (TTD is a new disorder mentioned in the latest APA guides. Acronym for “tank town depression.)

  5. You want to write about little ol’ me? They’re 8 or 9 better players. They’re on the boys team but still..
    She’s so “aw shucks” she’d make Peyton Manning blush. Of course USA women’s rugby prohibits dating. The motto is “Men weaken legs.”

  6. Looks like Friday’s strip is right in Rob’s wheelhouse!

  7. Wow, Ned prompted me to take a quick look-see and… wow, kinda inappropriate line of inquiry there for Marjie.

    Edited to add that in Thursday’s strip Marjie’s hair looks like it should be over her shoulder but instead looks like it’s pulled back over her shoulder which makes no sense.
