This Week in Milford

September 29, 2016

Beef on (Pel)weck(i)


I don’t recall seeing the panel where The Secret Pelwecki told Gil he owed him a shot at QB just because he caused the fumble that gave the Mudlarks a shot to win the Oakwood game. I’m not gonna even try to come up with an analogy for that logic.

If Gil only knew that the new assistant trainer fancies herself The Quarterback Whisperer. He could let her work her magic on Kevin and help him realize his potential to come up big when it’s least expected. Gil needs to realize that his team’s winning the state championship two seasons ago rested entirely on the fluke of Art Standish finding a job in the Valley and Art’s son feeling most comfortable under Gil’s laissez-faire guidance. Maybe the fluke (or is that flake?) that is Pelwecki can lead his team back to the playdowns.

Speaking of flukes, as I write Wake Forest is 4-0!

metapost: I’m going to be traveling on Saturday morning and would be grateful if one of my fellow bloggers could step in for me. If not, it’ll be late in the day before I get a chance to post. Okay? Okay!



  1. metacomment: I can do a post Saturday.

    I guess Gil’s practices are loose enough to just give The Secret Pelwecki some reps? They can always use a quarterback!

  2. It appears an earthquake of, say, 6.2 on the Richter Scale ripped through Milford recently. There is no structural damage, judging by P2, but in P1 it’s caused the landscape to tilt at 30 degrees. Good thing it wasn’t 45 degrees or a higher acute angle or they’d be dealing with more than a potential QB controversy.

  3. I’ll predict that Hakeem Archer will either quit or get injured and Kevin will be the starter by season’s end… just in time for Gil to switch to the Wing-T.

  4. Like teenchy, I was confused over who Palooka had been talking to. Then I realized that in the 9-28 panel, he is speaking to Dory Diddle in the first strip, but Gil and Kaz in the next two. Whigrub keeps giving us these brain-teasers! But the soi-disant quarterback’s logic would confuse anyone.

  5. The first PANEL, I meant. Duh.

    Fixed! – TimP

  6. Curls? So confusing . Gil is thinking 12 oz. curls, Pelwecki is thinking curl routes and Kaz is thinking curls with dumbbells.

  7. The coaches are really being dicks this season. Today we’ve got Gil pooh-poohing Kevin’s defensive prowess. Earlier we had Kaz laughing behind Kevin’s back at the thought of him playing quarterback. And, of course, we had Coach Dawes doing an emotional beatdown on Heather. Sports may build character, but not this fall at Milford High.
