This Week in Milford

Nobody Puts Bacon in a Locker


Well color me surprised. This feels less like an end to an arc and more like a “to be continued…” As the trees in Milford begin to bud, will we see these two again anytime soon? Will Kenzie make the Lady Mudlarks softball team, or will USA Rugby come calling for her? Will Maxwell Bacon be put into storage again until next December? Your guess is as good as mine, but at least we know Maxwell will be no Jamar Gaddis.

Exit our winter Milford power couple, stage right, into the yawning void of a Milford High hallway. Ducka you head!

    One day the local locker plant burned down, which I could not grok as a youngster. “Burn? Isn’t that thing full of frozen meat, Dad?” Family lore says the salvaged meat was so smelly, the dog wouldn’t eat it. But apparently we got a big check from the insurance company. So that.

    Now all that remains is Locker Plant Road, where you can occasionally buy acreage. The bear is probably not included.

  4. […] was made to “a linebacker in short pants”?  For that matter, where has all the Bacon gone? Wasn’t he still an underclassman last year? Did he drop out of Milford and follow […]

  5. […] and Big Ken Brown in best Rick Blaine and Captain Renault fashion. (This twin figures walking away into the shadows to end an arc thing is becoming a Whigham hallmark.)  All that’s missing is Tina Aagard […]
