This Week in Milford

May 5, 2016

‘Taters, on the Field and on the Face


En route to the Central City lockup, the Milford PD stop off at the ballfield and back the paddy wagon up to the dugout so Del could watch his boy play before doing his time. Mighty nice of ’em, innit? I guess Del wasn’t able to successfully assert the ineffective assistance of counsel defense. He saw about as much on-field action as we have, since all we get is “tell, don’t show” of what happened.  Nice Paulie Walnuts hair, potato nose and Kaz-emulating ear stud on our other bench commentator.

I’m guessing this Oak Ridge High is the one in Tennessee so why they didn’t show up with a can of nuclear waste to intimidate the Mudlarks is beyond me.



  1. The Bader Family: Where the drunk driver is the sympathetic character.

  2. Wow,unnamed teammate is one ugly dude. Looks like something out of a Harry Potter movie. Surely his one and only cameo appearance of the season.

  3. Meinhof’s gonna become the industrial solvents connection for his peeps in the Central City lockup.

  4. OK. So, the team has seen Meinhoff antagonize the first baseman, Kaz has had to throw water on him in a baserunning incident, and now a teammate remarks ironically that Bobby Mitchell’s homer doesn’t matter next to the Magnificent Midget. As Fred Rogers would ask, “Can you say ‘ex-po-si-tion?'”

  5. Don’t look at P1 too long my friends. Yes, it foreshadows elderbader behind bars, but his solvent-soaked head has literally melted thru the chain link. He must rep that fence spray they use in Call of Duty 4.

  6. Oak Ridge has joined select company as one of the very few recurring non-Valley Conference opponents that Milford has played. Earlier this year, the Lady ‘Larks basketball team defeated Oak Ridge on the strength of a Stacy DuFord 3 pointer.

  7. @Bobby Joe — he may be ugly, but is he five-tool ugly? Does he run ugly, hit ugly, throw ugly, field ugly, and ugly for power?

  8. I’m sure Gil is clueless on Baders negative mojo for team. Has he made him captain yet?

  9. @Roscoe P. Soultrain – Remember Don Mossi well. Played for my Cleveland Indians in the late ’50’s and he was truly ugly.

  10. Fool that I am, I ignored g2’s caution not to look at p1 too long. Truly disturbing. If this were not at Mfnrd I would say the Oak Ridgers have altered “the universe as we know it” via the nuclear waste teenchy mentioned.

  11. According to Pikiwedia, “Oak Ridge High School was established in 1943 by the U.S. Army to educate children of the workers building and operating Manhattan Project facilities in Oak Ridge.” And their mascot, just as the ever-current Rubin notes, is the (Wild)cats. Given this backdrop, the magic fence is easily explained but still creepy.
