This Week in Milford

How Much Longer?

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Pissy faced True — nedryerson @ 3:21 am


It looks like Gil wants to dip his toes in the water a little bit and take an interest in what’s going on in the locker room. But rather than confront the problem in the locker room, with the team, he’d rather stroll around with True and make it about True. We don’t know why. We ask why over and over here, but there are no answers.



  1. It’s those sad, soulful blue eyes. Gil gets lost in them.

    Plus, his counseling technique apparently consists of forcing a bereaved high school student to befriend a teammate who’s being a total douchenozzle about his best friend’s death.

    That’s trolling of the highest order. Maybe it’ll be Gil who winds up stuffed into a locker.

  2. Three questions:
    1. Doesn’t Gil recognize that this can’t improve until Barry changes … so why not start by talking to Barry?
    2. In the real world, wouldn’t a head coach presented with this sort of problem talk to his team captain rather than a relief pitcher?
    3. Is the Milford HS baseball season going to end before the Atlanta Braves are mathematically eliminated?

  3. Yeah Gil is definetly talking to wrong guy. True is at Wake Forest getting ready for big game vs maybe The Citadel?

  4. Just his teammates, Gil?

  5. Wake Forest opens its 2016 football season a month from today, hosting Tulane on a Thursday night. Just sayin’.

  6. Wake Forest football apparently has its first practice this Friday, 5 August. Not to mention the foreshadowing Rubin did regarding True and pro baseball … he almost has to at least have True turn down a contract offer. This is going to be a busy week for young Mr. Standish.

  7. Is Gil carrying a clipboard or 12 pk in panel 2? I think they are on school property. Gil demonstrating how above the law he is in that tank town. He’s a gosh darn disgrace!

  8. “Would you tolerate that on your football team, True? I mean, I couldn’t give a shit about it happening on my baseball team, but with the exception of picking up a cold brew, I’m a pretty hands off guy.”

  9. My theory is still that the Syndicate has pulled the plug on the strip as of the end of the baseball season.Sometime around Labor Day they’ll figure out that this season will never end and then .

  10. I’m still trying to parse “It’s not the same.” Seems pretty similar to me. And it’s definitely puzzling that Gil is talking to a walk-on reliever rather than Captain Ken.
