This Week in Milford

What Whistle?

Filed under: actual action, basketball, freak hands — nedryerson @ 3:34 am


What is there to say? Reverse image basket, celebrating freaks, whistle-less ref doing the hand jive.

Face it. It’s over. Kenzie will never be heard from again.





  1. I realize that calling this strip a pile of steaming feces is not an original thought — that’s why we’re here — but come ON.

  2. Ref standing perfectly still in an indoor gym, her hair somehow blowing in the “wind”… what is this, a shampoo commercial?

  3. Possible reasons to wave off the basket:
    1. Time expired. Unlikely. As presented in the strip, Kenzie had enough time for that Montana-sees-Jerry-Rice-deep toss.
    2. Ref is calling a dead ball because it hit the top of the backboard. I do not have a high school rulebook in front of me, but I am 100% sure that all edges of the backboard are in bounds. So, unless the ref blew the call (it’s happened), this one doesn’t work.
    3. The High School Athletic Association in New Leicestershire (or whatever state Milford is in this week) realized that basketball had gone on too long, and cancelled the rest of the season as of that instant.

  4. Off the edge of the
    Backboard, up to the rafters..
    And in! Game over!

    There’s a little Monday haiku to soothe your troubled minds. Because that Breck Girl ref is clearing waving off the bucket. And nowhere are found the words, “Milford Wins”. On to baseball!

  5. Sorry Kenzie, baseball/softball season beckons. It’s not her fault that Rubin doesn’t pace seasons 1/10 as well as Berrill or even Jerry B. Jenkins, but it is a fact of playing for Westview these days.

    We appear to already be in transition to the baseball/softball plot in panel 3, with the introduction of this spring’s new lead character… who works part time at a Foot Locker in New Thayer.

  6. Forget it, Leisl. It’s Tanktown.

  7. I have an awful feeling that we are about to prematurely say goodbye to yet another interesting female character, following Boo Radley and Amy (Amy Lange.) What does Whigrub have against girls?
