This Week in Milford

Uh Gil, you’re already at home

Gil gives an impassioned speech intended to fire up the line so they can block Oakwoods defense and run the ball down their throats for the win. If only it was that simple.

If they score they still have to play defense, which may require another short pep talk. Also, what took so long for Gil to figure out how to win this game? Where was all this coaching before?
And being tougher then the guy across from you means dipshit if you dont have strength and technique.

Panel 3 has one play, a gain of seven yards. Good start, but how many more panels do we need for this game to end? October is Sunday. My area teams are in Week 6 tonight. One stinkin game all of September, mostly because we were still dickin around with Chief Jaquan Case and his merry men and woman.



  1. Gil’s only interested in the “go home” part of his speech. That’s where the rotgut is.

  2. Nick Hawker ( Booger) a character who will soon be forgotten.

  4. In P2 Gil got only 4 unenthusiastic “yeahs”. I’m guess the kid laughing in P2 doesn’t think he’s tough enough. Or just humored by Gil’s 1958 rah! rah! BS.

  5. I hate to keep harping about the good ol’ days but the Berrill version of Coach Thorp was semi-involved in the game, guiding the ship safely into port. As our writers have mentioned, the new Gil climbs out of his rabbit hole to give a motivational speech like he was at an Amway meeting(stretching things to call it a pep talk). Anybody who remembers the old Hitchcock movies knows he made a cameo appearance at a time only Hitchcock knew, leaving the audience confused and guessing. Pretty much Gil now. Stranger in his own country. Oh, and Gil, dump the Sgt. Carter haircut. This is Milford, not Camp Pendleton.

  6. […] you called it! Three yards and a cloud of hair grease as The No Longer So Secret Pelwecki pounds it up the […]

  7. I agree with Bobby Joe that Nick Hawker will not be a recurring character. He’s this year’s version of one few beyond billytheskink will remember– “Bill Hawkins.”
