This Week in Milford

Milford Falls

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Madison Time, Prairie Style Windows — nedryerson @ 4:25 am


I’m returning from a week away and just caught up on all the action. Ken and Mike, boy detectives, went to the Kwik E Mart and Mrs. Aagard is dragging ass, or something like that, right?

So, it is Madison time* and Aagard is on the court for the final seconds. Coach Thorp wants the ball in Aaron’s hands. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. This must be part of Gil’s inquiry into the Aagard conundrum. The buzzer sounds. Another loss for the record book. Does Gil need to talk to Aaron again? He’s gonna be tuckered out before winter is over.

*Sure, it’s over, but how could I resist? This one has no helpful narrator to tell you what to do, but you all know the moves by now, right?



  1. I’m amazed that Madison stripped the ball, considering that in panel 1 Aaaaron seems to have his fist wedged securely INSIDE the ball.

    But hey, as long as Gil’s plan to miss the playdowns is still on track…

  2. Great video there. Nothing says “cool” like skinny ties and bowling alleys. Early Spike Jonze, I presume?

  3. Big surprise, Aaaaaaaron crapped the bed. Must be because Maaaa didn’t show up. Will Molly console him by going to another rave with him to celebrate the loss.

  4. Almost February and still no mention of the girl’s team…
    They’ll have to show up a lot before the season is out to equal the appearances made by giant prairie windows.

  5. That must be because Aaaaaaaron Aaaaaardvark is such a fascinating character. Last year’s freak lacrosse player must have graduated or went back to her first love. She was so memorable that I can’t even remember her name.

  6. Perhaps Mfnrd has dropped the girls team. This would allow Kenzie Hanley to take over at center, assuming she has not returned to rugger. The way this plot is lurching curb to curb, a little deus ex machina might fit right in.

  7. Help me out. P2: Madison11 strips the ball, but P3 has a different Madison shooting the frees. So, some desperate foul away from the ball then? Madison in the bonus shooting two? Did I read that correctly? God knows I want to get it right.

    I do take comfort they’re using the “WiRnnM Miniw” signature ball. He was my favorite, in the day.

  8. Did Aaron put on something like forty pounds, mostly in his jowels, in P1?

  9. g2, those basketballs are the latest special editions autographed by Jabba the Hutt to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his rookie year in the American Basketball Association(ABA). He was a power forward with the Oakland Oaks and won a couple of rings until his knees gave out(wonder why), forcing him into early retirement. Later, as many I’m sure are aware, he had a solid career as a crime boss on Tatooine. Anyway, Wilson developed this Special Edition in his honor and Milford High School was one of the fortunate beneficiaries of these esteemed roundballs.
