This Week in Milford

Respectful Ignorance

Nothing like pulling a tall Freezy Bomb at the Swifti Mart in the dead of winter.

Did I say I was OK with the continued antics of Ken and Mike? I suppose that I did but these two really need to pick up the pace. Grabbing a drink at the corner store ain’t exactly the most exciting plot device.



  1. P3: “Have you tried their tartar sauce? Boy, that hits the spot with the Chocolate Freezy Slop. You can’t ignore that. There’s some on the shelf right behind you.”

  2. A good brain freeze will enhance their cognitive abilities, I’m sure.

    This has got to be a Swifti-Mart, right? While you’re there, why not pick up a Nut-Boy to go with those Freezy Bombs?

    I’m focusing on the culinary delights of Milford’s finest convenience store chain because I can’t stand speculating on the team-destroying hijinx that these two dumbasses are plotting.

  3. Do not even with tartar sauce. 30 years ago, at a Ponderosa salad bar, my wife confused tartar sauce with an ice cream topping. It has not been forgotten.

    Of course, the normal way to investigate would be to spend time with Aaron: go to a rave, talk more to him, etc. Pretty sure they’ll come up with something much cleverer.

  4. If Aaron Aagard plays best when he is in front of his girlfriend, there are two options:

    1. Bring Molly to every game.
    2. Get Aaron girlfriends at every school in the Valley Conference. Shouldn’t be hard, as he has somehow turned into the least obnoxious character in this storyline.

    OR we could let Gil write a LETTER to Representative Betty Bright about it.

  5. I don’t like the look’s of this. Conspiring to undermine the coach with tattered logic over a couple of freezy slops doesn’t bode well when attempting to get the combination number necessary to unlock the skinny to a teammate’s inconsistencies.
    Can you imagine Jesse James talking over robbing the Wells Fargo Wagon with his gang at the 7-11 over a chocolate Slushee? The Clanton brothers intending to ignore BUT respect Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday over strawberry & lemon Freezee Slop at the Tombstone, Arizona Territory, Gas ‘n’ Goodies?
    If they don’t live to tell about it and get detention even with good intentions, at least Ken Brown has a solid career modeling for beer ads.

  6. I guess we ignore the obvious case of solecism/equivocation here. Trying to remember if there is precedent in GT for stoonts independently pursuing such an investigation. If anyone did it, it was probably Hadley v Baxendale, but I’m not remembering details. It may be important to remember that Gil did not so forbid Ken Brown from doing anything as much as excuse him from doing so, while directing him to look after his own game.
