This Week in Milford

September 22, 2016

Those Who Can, Do. Those Who Can’t, Coach for Gil for Free


The Secret Pelwecki’s Other Ball just dropped from the arm of the Oakwood running back, giving the Mudlarks’ sputtering offense a shot at getting back in the game. Leading with his head helped Kevin jar the ball loose, but I’m sure that’s not the way Gil wants to see his quarterback use his head.

Speaking of quarterbacks, new assistant trainer Heather Burns has her own opinions about Milford’s. Could it be that the mediocre soccer player doesn’t want to use Rick Scott to sidle her way to becoming the Mudlarks’ placekicker, but to become their quarterbacks coach? Wasn’t one Bobby Howry enough this decade? Or could it be that she actually wants to become the quarterback herself?  By the way, whatever happened to Jarrod Hale?

Pantheon of Hair Dept.: That bowl cut with the keyhole bangs that Whigham is so fond of drawing and that would not look out of place in an Our Gang Comedy.


  1. I think that Heather in Panel 3 is an homage to Roy Lichtenstein.

  2. 1. Does anyone have any idea whether Milford won or lost?
    2. Heather: “It’s not my job … like that’s ever stopped anyone before in this strip”.

  3. Pelwecki’s not helping his case for becoming QB with all this excellent game-saving defense.

  4. I think Jarrod Hale was in True’s year and thus has graduated or at least used up his eligibility. Billy will likely clarify.

    We seem to have some missing exposition here, in that we have no idea why Heather is so focused on quarterbacking technique. Could she be connected to Kevin “spear the ball loose with your head” Pelwecki? Or did she play that position in kiddie football before turning to soccer? I am sure we will find out. I have to put in that she does not seem to be the self-propelled annoyance Bobby Howry was.

  5. And with today’s strip, this is the last I know of my Milford namesakes story. I let u guys in on my nickname, position switch and the “impact” I would make in today’s strip before they appeared. But I know nothing else. I believe Milford Kevin and Heather will be an “item” this season Hopefully she doesn’t get smoked by a drunk dude and I gotta come up with something to top lil’ libraries.

  6. Jarrod Hale was in fact in True’s class. He was introduced during summer 7-on-7 play in 2014 as a “junior QB”, so he has graduated.

  7. […] to be yet another in a very long line of Milford Idiots who want nothing more than to be the defensive lineman right guard center of attention. I blame reality […]

  8. […] reminded of the University of Oregon Ducks. Last season Oakwood had an interesting, unconventional helmet design going on so this registers as a downgrade. Then again, Oakwood may have a Phil Knight-like […]
