Juggling 101

Filed under: Milford Weirdos — robmize2013 @ 4:45 pm

When I was in high school, our gym teacher one year was the assistant football coach. And we needed to be occupied in gym class by more then basketball and knee football. So one day he taught us how to juggle. Yep – its one of the few skills I learned in high school that I can say I still use today. Another English teacher played the guitar and we’d sing songs on Fridays. Another geography teacher (that I didnt have because I didnt take the class, it was so banel that the few kids that were behind me in class rank took it because they couldnt pass anything else besides gym and study hall) allegedly showed movies all the time. But I digress. If I made the honor roll I wouldnt be reading this dreck.

So I got pretty good at juggling, even graduating to 4 tennis balls (that was what we used.) We started with 2 balls to get used to catching and tossing, then worked our way up to 3. The whole trick is you have 1 ball in the air all the time and the other 2 are in each hand, and you learn to catch without watching your hands so you can focus on the ball in the air and then move your hands around to where its gonna land and hope 2 balls dont hit each other coming up and down. Aaron is using apples. I suppose he’s so good he can take a bite while he’s juggling. How anyone that actually tries to juggle can be the worst juggler in the Valley is beyond me, but these kids are borderline normal anyway so who’s to say anything?

Happy New Year everyone – hope 2017 brings us not only health, but a slew of Milford victories.




  1. Ken Brown doesn’t see to be the type to not get steamed at a guy because said guy is a silly juggler. Each seasons story gets worse and worse.

  2. I’m missing those overwhelmingly endearing qualities supposedly posessed by Young Mr. Aaaagard. Seems like a complete tool to me. Unreliable teammate, stays out all night during the week, treats everything like a big fat joke, and ooooooh, that hair. That’s a full bushel of hate right there. He’s already far more annoying than Heather Burns was in an entire season of endless precocity.

  3. Taking the baton from John S. Walters,

    A script from “Hoosiers” that was thrown in the trash can and later retrieved for other purposes

    “Jimmy Chitwood’s a fine feller. He may’ve blown the easy layup against Terhune when all them Hoonies had all fouled out and nobody on th’ floor, he may have pissed on the refs and gotten a 3-game suspension, Hell, who we gonna use when we play Jasper this Friday, he may’ve scratched his butt silly causin’ the Oolitic crowd ta laugh him outta the gym, he may be a hick who’s not from French Lick. And juggler? Fergit it. He fumbled with Merle’s wrenches when the Ringling Brothers came ta Hickory. But ya gotta lak hi-im.”

  5. […] recall AaAa’s apple gag so I looked it up. The relevant strips were essentially a pre-hash of the story in today’s strip. I’m not entirely clear how serial apple larceny is an […]
