Stretching It

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, freak hands, general nonsense, High Five Fail — timbuys @ 7:36 am


P1: I dunno something about the high fives in this strip is just off…

P2: Did Heather and Kevin just wander off while Trey and Jaquan started stretching?

P3: ZZZzzzz


  1. 1. Oh yeah, let’s make sure we keep this a secret Mr. NBA D-league, and Mr. Olympic-class physical trainer… That’s why you showed up at your old high school where there’s a chance you’ll be recognized and when you weren’t instantly recognized you went down on the field and interrupted the training of two other people JUST so you introduce yourselves and tell them just how famous and wealthy you are, and just how deeply a couple of random high schoolers should bow in your presence…GMAFB

    2. It’s funny because in his rush to shoehorn in an African-American colloquialism in an effort to sound authentic, Rubin has *NO* fucking idea whatsoever about what “the down-low” means…

  2. Hitorque @1, part 2: Funny, I was about to mention the same thing.

  3. Right you are, Hitorque. Unless Rubin comes up with some clever reason for Jaquan to hide (dodging a process server, perhaps?), this has already tripped over its own feet.
    Maybe Marty Moon will find out he’s in town. That guy broadcasts from a packing crate, and he seems to have an audience bigger than the BBC World Service.

  4. P2: Wait a minute, why should you do that, Trey, when you’ve already checked in with the Coach du Jour? Isn’t THAT enough????!!!!???As hitorque, John S., Jive Turkey, et al, have mentioned, Gil’s not around anyway. But if you must make this a redundancy, I’d check his backyard patio first, you know, the ones with the teal iced tea glasses next to the Smokemaster grill. You might want to bring your appetite and some Chinet paper plates. Gil should have enough sporks.

  5. GT has always had a retro feel– a friend referred to it the other day as “1959 with cell phones,” and this quality may well be in play here. When Max Schmeling trained for the second Louis fight in 1938, he did so here, in my small town. Fewer onlookers, fewer reporters, less uproar. This was a common practice at the time, in fact before their first right, Louis had trained in rural New Jersey.

    Now Mfnrd may be a wide spot in the road to many of us, but with year round sports teams, it is certain there is a competent PT in town. I suspect that Jaquan knows exactly what to do in rehab and that Trey Davis, a trainer, can properly monitor his work. I don’t deny that most of us would not choose to rehab in Mfnrd, but give that it’s his trainer’s home town and that he has strong positive thoughts about Mfnrd and Gil, I find his choice unusual but perfectly understandable.

  6. “On the down low” used to mean “under radar” for discrete affair. Here in Louisville the African-American community uses the phrase to mean a married man’s affair with a younger man…

  7. I did some checking on Gil’s last appearance. It was June 23rd when he got all puffy chested around Mimi and said he’d boot Cane out of school, valley and time zone if he roughs up another broad. I’m guessing Gil lost the loser leave town match with Cane in the squared circle.

  8. 3. I remember that last year Heather said she wanted to be a PT, so I guess this is the part where she helps out with Daquan’s rehab, and with no schooling, training or experience we discover that she’s an unquestioned expert and innovator in that field, too?
