This Week in Milford

August 2, 2016

I Dunno… We’ll Call Today’s Post: “Truly Disappointing”… Get it?

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, Chunky Bracelets, Gil Thorp, Pissy faced True — timbuys @ 8:10 am


Panel one: True makes a reasonable point.

Panel two: Gil responds with body language that unequivocally suggests True should talk to his butt.

Panel three: I’ll bet Barry’s mother, Del’s wife, has a hell of a backstory and one can only imagine all that she’s thinking about at this point in her life. Too bad, so far as I know, she doesn’t have a name.



  1. Perhaps you could get off of your dead ass Gil and talk to your team or better yet maybe talk to Master Bader about being less of a self centered , insensitive dick.

  2. P2: “Talk to the butt, ’cause the face don’t know what.”

    P3: She should have a name. I suggest “Ella Bader” (or “Anne Nonymous-Bader”?) but know there are better ideas out there. At any rate, we know that one CAN only imagine what she’s thinking — we don’t get much “what she’s thinking” around here.

    Anyway, it’s Del on the phone. Anything else might mean that she has a life and/or a mind of her own, so nah.

  3. I still say that’s not a clipboard Gil is holding. Looks like a big can of Fosters with the tab sticking up. If it isn’t it should be, because that’s one clueless coach. Take D Days advice, start drinking heavily.

  4. I wish that they would wrap this up already–it has gone beyond pointless and now is a source of irritation. Gil, the “adult” “coach” thinks that a 17-year kid should take the lead on dealing with some serious personality conflicts that involve his dead ex-girlfriend and uses the passive-aggressive play on True’s name to boot. Of course, that does make him a fairly realistic single A high school coach I guess.

  5. In Gil’s world, a teammate is more important than a dead best friend. Life lessons for everyone!

  6. True: “‘True? Truly?’ You were up all night working on that. Let’s try this. At the first practice, everybody was prepared to accept the new guys as teammates. All of the new guys seemed to want to be teammates … except Bader. He’s made it clear throughout this Endless-Death-March-To-Hell of a season that everything and everybody is all about him. He’s never shown any interest in the team record, or taken any pleasure in anyone else’s accomplishments, but he makes sure you know all about every single one of his RBI. If his dad had phoned for a ride home that night, Boo would be at a softball camp someplace right now, and Barry would still be a jerk, and no one would want to be around him. That’s on him. So, talk to him”.

  7. It must be Del on the phone Laura, as nobody calls collect these days; except from jail….

  9. BTW Jason, I’ve been absent a long time and so glad you kept this blog going. I’m the one who sent you the colored comics from Louisville C-J with the pink uniforms.

    Great Job!

  11. Hey Gils Barber – welcome back! Oh yeah, I’m on strike. Day 13. Whatever, nice to see you again, just saying I love her pose in P3, all curled up and ready to chit chat. Like talking to an old girlfriend. Lionel Richie would love todays strip too!
