This Week in Milford

Even At The Half!

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Kenzie Hanley, Mimi Thorp, Where is Milford? — timbuys @ 5:12 am


So, we’re in Winston-Salem? Sure, why not?

Ah, the playdowns!™ Remember those? Who knows what dreams may come true?



  1. Yeah, well, this is all great; but when does Kenzie get to be Kenzie? Perhaps at the buzzer?

  2. Is the clock vibrating with excitement, or is that just a random stroke of the Chief’s pen?

  3. Okay, question: if the defense is sagging, how come there are THREE defenders clustered around Stacey Duford, who’s presumably gunning from downtown? Also, why are they bothering to defend someone with such a horrible shot? She’s more likely to drop the ball behind her than actually score.

    I’m putting a lot of effort into panel 2. It’s a desperate attempt to avoid the other question: If the boys’ trophy looks absolutely phallic, what does the girls’ trophy look like? I’m thinking big bronze vagina.

  4. The other two defenders must be on that offensive jugernaught Menzie. She will still no doubt score the winning points with underhanded foul shots.

  5. You would think it would be easy to beat the Winston-Salem Mustangs, given that all the girls are likely heavy smokers and should get winded easily. After all, Winston, Salem, and Mustangs are all individual brands of cigarettes, so you’d imagine that smoking at least a pack of each brand would be required at the school to maintain school spirit.

  6. Medford, MA also calls their teams Mustangs.
    Mefuh – Mfnrd would be a great game.

  7. These are all great points. What do you think? Kenzie will score the winning foul shots underhanded, then kiss Maxwell at center court, and Stacey and Leisl will lift the the bronze, uh, you know, high, while the fishermen and their wives dance in the courtyard. In the next day’s first frame, Gil will be trying to decide if he can let the junior with Tourette syndrome coach first base. If the basketball season can hinge on Kenzie breaking that kid’s jaw, baseball can surely pivot on the student-coach getting the pitcher to lose the strike zone and bean the umpire.

  8. Incidentally, I used to ride my bike through Medford, MA, all the time when I lived in Cambridge. Mfnrd vs Medfd would be a fascinating match-up even if the two teams would first have to study the other’s customs, and the referees would have to use American Sign Language.

  9. Of course we’re in Winston-Salem: the better to check in on True Standish as he enrolls early (after declaring late) at Wake Forest.
