This Week in Milford

April 27, 2016

There Must Be A Pop Culture Reference I’m Missing Here

Filed under: Boredom in Milford — timbuys @ 5:02 am


The girls swing by as they apparently are wont to do in Milford and Boo calls True Biff for reasons which elude me. Major plot point for today? Gil has well and truly given up on protecting True’s arm. Take that faithful followers of whatever message board Wake Forest football fans frequent!

ETA – Edited To Alliterate



  1. Now that True has used up his football eligibility, Gil’s letting him experiment with the slider. Or, in other words, “Don’t worry, kid. Tommy John surgery almost always works.”

    If True starts racking up the complete games, then we’ll know for sure.

  2. I’m sure Gil is making True use his other arm. Surfer dudes are usually ambidextrous. Wow, sometimes spell correct is helpful. Assuming that’s how ambidextrous is spelled .

  3. “True Standish” is not preppy enough of a name, Boo? I guess maybe not when compared to Addison Radley…

  4. Or Adderall Howry. I’m glad to see True ‘n Boo re-enter the picture, and still hope to see more of Kenzie. When I first glanced at the strip I thought we were seeing way too much of Boo, but then I noticed the jersey seams. Like Charlie Brown waiting for the Great Pumpkin, or Didi and Gogo patiently awaiting Godot, I still hope to see a good spring story involving the girls as well as the boys…

  5. From Wiki, urban dictionary–Biff: Adjective used to describe someone who requires little intelligence for their job; no mention of use as a preppy surfer dude.

  6. Tune in next week when Biff tweaks his arm working on that slider and Wake pulls his scholly.

  7. I agree that for a D-1 quarterback prospect, pitching is a bad idea, but at least it’s a slider rather than a curve or worse yet a screwball. To me it’s strange that after a summer filled with blah blah about True’s college plans– and with them the implication of a role in his decisions by recruiters– there is no mention of the Wake Forest coach’s attitude about his playing baseball. Parallel, I guess, to USA Rugby’s apparent silence about Kenzie playing basketball, busting up Central City assholes, etc.
