This Week in Milford

June 24, 2017

Which Two Did He Hit?


Poor Ryan.  Fist at the ready but he’s not supposed to punch anyone.  Way to not take advantage of a situation.

Know who else hasn’t taken advantage of a situation?  Marty Moon!  If he broadcasts every Milford game, he’d have seen the protest poster and been on the story like white on rice. Even if he doesn’t broadcast every game, surely Marjie Ducey would’ve picked up the story and he’d have commented on it. (Pouty Daftpunk isn’t the only “journalist” in town, dontchaknow.) Instead Marty’s been sitting in his basement, rolling his dice and composing music on his Casiotone. See the pile of blank staff paper on top of the keyboard?

Don’t look now folks but in a week’s time Milford has supposedly played six games. Reckon they’ll finish the season by the end of the month – or before Dafiltefish crawls back to Ms. Rizk begging to get back on the Trumpet staff?  Let’s put in an order to Rob’s Pizza and watch things unfold; I hear the breadsticks are a must. I’d say we could hang out but Rob’s is takeout or delivery only.



  1. Either end this this week or have Dafne take her story to Marty and make this interesting for once.

    4 games in two panels, that’s pacing folks…

  2. Rob’s Pizza is a good idea, but I’ll be at the sub shop hoping Herk the Mauler drops by again. Can’t think of its full name– it replaced the wonderfully named Sub Standard.

  3. I’m starting to think we’ll never hear from the shot putter, the hurdler, or the softball team again.

  4. Shot putter, hurdler, softball team? Jeeze, I forgot– this started as a spring sports plot. We did see Daffy walking out of practice, but have not seen the shot putter or the hurdler for a some time now….

  5. vaganove – that would be the Subwich chain. Thanks for the reminder of Herk the Mauler, which brought us the storyline of the most homoerotic-named wrestler of all time – Hairy Hercules.

  6. My, My, these uniforms. Ryan went from the chain gang look a couple of days ago to what the Oakland Raiders would be wearing should they ever step out of their element in the NFL and pursue baseball.
    Then there’s Marty Moon. As our writers have mentioned, how is a teen-age muckraker that just crashed and burned getting the better of someone who used to pursue people like Ryan with a vengeance only the Inquisition could appreciate? Marty must have stored up a lot of vacation time. And is he the organist for the game? I couldn’t noticing the Wurlitzer in front of him. I hope he doesn’t SING the Nation Anthem. Gil and Marty might renew their animosity over that one. We already have enough grief on our hands. P3 confirms it.

  7. It’s probably just my art background poking through uninvited, but I notice that Ryan in Panel 1 is wearing black (Mfnrd jerseys have usually been either red or white– home or away) and that Daffy is wearing black in Panel 3. OK, gothiness is a thing, even in Mfnrd, but I also notice the contrast in expressions. WP Ryan looks happy and relaxed, while Daffy looks like she’s considering whether she can get that fork to stick in the wall like Jim Bowie. Are we perhaps being set up for a “conflict” of a different sort?

  8. […] from falling back on my go-to “Who saw that coming?” from Black Dynamite except to say, well, I saw that […]
