This Week in Milford

Ankle Taping Time

Filed under: general nonsense — nedryerson @ 3:36 am


Over some ankle taping, Quarterback Whisperer Heather Burns picks up on Kevin Pelwescki’s quarterback obsession. Heather Burns takes action and issues an ultimatum: Get your ass to my Saturday a.m. QB dojo or shut your Pelwecki hole! Should we dither around in the training room or the game vs. Sulphur High (that place stinks!) or shall we cut straight to the training montage?:


  1. Hell of a road trip. Sulphur High is in Sulphur, Louisiana; its mascot is an angry tornado. Sounds like a fun place.

    Otherwise, here we have another example of a female character suddenly displaying an unsupported trait. Like Boo loving to read, now we have Heather the football expert. Looking forward to scenes of Heather and Kevin practicing the center snap, which of course involves Kevin placing his hand firmly on Heather’s hoo-ha.

  2. This would go down a little easier if we had some basis for thinking that Heather knows anything about QB technique. Maybe we’ll learn that her dad is the offensive coordinator at Monmouth (which is in Illinois, and Sulphur HS is in Louisiana, wonder what Milford’s travel budget looks like?)
    I want to see the handoff drills Heather comes up with.

  3. After the Summer of Hate they’ve hooked me. Will Kevin or Heather end up playing QB? Probably Kevin, given the strip’s focus on Meaty Manly Men, but maybe..

  4. And where does this as knowledge of QB play come from? Can’t wait to hear this one.

  5. Good to see Dilton Doiley take a break from the Archie & the Gang set in order to make a cameo appearance. I’m sure Milford High and Riverdale High have an exchange program in the works. As for Sulphur High, couldn’t Gil get a more high-school-friendly name, like Mapleton Heights or Danbury Tech, for suggestions? He must have had an open date on the schedule.
    P3: “Do you wanna let the Sulphur Stinkums get bragging rights for a year? Then get your
    a– at the practice field at 10:00AM, this Saturday or your career will be shorter than Gil’s hair.”

  6. Is Heather going to bring a live chicken Saturday to practice the Fumble Recovery Drill the way Mickey Goldmill did his exercise regimen with Rocky? Just askin’.

  7. The name Sulphur High may top ‘Oolithic’ from “Hoosiers.” And John S’s mention of Heather’s hoo-ha prods me to ask if that is Bobby Hoo-hah (or was it “Howry?”) taping an ankle in p-2? I am fascinated by the fact Mfnrd has students treating injured players, even under Trainer Rick Scott’s supervision. This may not be as dramatically unethical as running a “reality” TV show at Mfnrd HS, but it’s pretty goddamn close. The potential for lawsuits is endless, as is the work for the law firm in which Knox Foolhardy’s father is a partner. In any case, when the Sulphur game comes up, we can be sure subs will be greeted with derisive shouts of “Last one in’s a rotten egg!”
