This Week in Milford

I Felt Like Skipping, Too, But I Posted This Anyway

Say goodbye to the brutally honest Coach Dawes. Nice knowin’ ya.

Back to the gridiron where three unidentifiable lumps* converse. Maybe the lump in shoulder pads and shorts is our newfound Friend of TWIM Kevin Pelwecki, based on his size and dark mullet. Not sure what the other two are supposed to be laughing or not laughing about but it might be that already marked 40-yard line, which is put down 90 degrees off from any I’ve ever seen.  When Gil needs help getting the chalk down on the field, you know it’s gonna be a long season – figuratively, that is; I don’t see this one lasting five and a half months in real time myself.

* TWIMer Max points out that unidentifiable lump nearest the reader is one-armed Coach Steve Boone. Perhaps I should not have assumed that he could have had an arm obscured in shadow.



  1. What is going on with Heather’s left ear? It kind of looks as though Whigham gave her multiple earrings and then thought better of it after having inked several of them.

  2. I think the dots below Heather’s left ear are part of the rhinestone-studded scrunchie that keeps her ponytail in place.

    And thus ends the Lady Mudlark soccer season…

  3. So when is her tryout for the varsity football kicker taking place? That will cause Gil a lot of heartburn.

  4. Isn’t senior year a little late to be taking up football? I know that kickers are protected by the rules, but not on a kick return or a busted play. If Heather is going to play, she’s going to have to learn how to block, tackle, and cover fumbles safely, and in a major hurry.

  5. That is one-armed Coach Steve in panel 3.

  6. Heather will have the Rolf Bernishke rule. Do your job then get off the field to avoid contact. Or the Deion Sanders rule.

  7. Oh, God, no. Please, not a female kicker storyline. What a waste of an entire football season of strips this will be.

  8. Girls kicking field goals is by now a familiar– that is to say tired– story. But Mfnrd is, as we accept, in a time warp. I think of it as 1964 with cell phones. With any luck this will not turn into the journalistic abomination known as the “human interest” story, such as that of the girl who was crowned homecoming queen at halftime then kicked the winning field goal in the fourth quarter.

  9. Vaganova, not only is senior year a little late to take up football, it’s a lot late to start hitting the weight room. With any luck, trainer Rick will have her lifting with proper form by about game 3. She’ll start to see some enhanced definition in the large muscles of the limbs by game 8. Even if Rick starts her on 5 mg of Anavar a day (a promising story line), she still won’t see enough improvement by season’s end to make any difference.

  10. So will she kick the winning FG in the State Championship game so everyone can forget about St Tru of Standish?

  11. Nice vampire eyes in P1

  12. […] the next game?) We clearly know what Dafne Dafuq loves more; if the Lady Mudlarks softball team had a more observant coach, Dafne would get the hint and drop the game. But the softball diamond is Thorp country, where […]

  13. […] no!  She doesn’t even look so much Dafne’s way! Mimi needs to grow a pair like that Coach Dawes and tell Dafne to go do what she loves but never darken a softball field […]
