This Week in Milford

November 5, 2016

Any day with Marjie Ducey is a good day.

Marjies 2-day interview continues, again without an adult present. We’ve gone over this before, but in Milford, you can fly solo no matter your age when it comes to newspaper stories. Love Marjies deadpan expression in P2 – she’s thinking ‘ you really think I’m keeping this low-key? How? Writing it in Chinese on the last page upside down?

It wasnt even her idea at all – the fact that they were down to recruiting her out of the blue tells us all we need to know about their talent pipeline.

And of course Marty Moon is gonna talk about it on his show; after he couldnt figure it out at the game he was ANNOUNCING! Where he had a roster of names and numbers right in frickin front of him. Yeah I know “HE” isnt exactly feminine. I just cant believe she never once took her helmet off the whole game. There’s so many dopes in Milford they should glue them all together into a giant statue in front of City Hall.

Tribute to Panel 1 today featuring the Rays from 1957.




  1. Wait, what? Duplicate post?

  3. In the news business, they call it “burying the lede,” and Marjie’s editor would have rewritten her story to put FIRST GIRL IN MILFORD FOOTBALL right in the headline.

    I do love panel 3. There’s Marty, five seconds before his mic goes live, scanning the (ungainly, rustling, physical) paper for something to talk about. “Aww, Jesus, I’ve got another three hours to fill. I never get any callers to talk about Milford goddamn football. Is there ANYTHING interesting to say, or am I just going to drink myself into oblivion in the middle of my show like usual?”

  4. I saw there was no post in the evening so I decided to do one, as so happens every now and then when there’s no post by dinnertime. Didnt mean to upend teenchy. I love the similarity in our titles – the positive Marjie vibe vs the negative Marty vibe.

  5. No worries Rob. Our posts went up at approximately the same time. Great minds (or, at least, the TWIM hive mind) think alike.
