This Week in Milford

October 3, 2017

Watch 55!

Filed under: actual action, Fontastic, football, Gil Thorp — timbuys @ 6:56 am


Panel 1: I thought Fillion was supposed to be small. He’s taller than Gil.

Panel 2: Wanna bet that this mistaken Oakwood player is their local equivalent to the obnoxious/precocious Milfordian adolescent?

Panel 3: Either Nick Hawker is carrying a grapefruit or Milford is passing the ball.

Minus points: Yesterday.



  1. Telling the quarterback the play on the sideline? Who still does that? C’mon Gil, get with the program, plays are called with hand signals or posters with pictures of old NBA logos and Arnold from Hey Arnold! now.

  2. Okay, um, if this is supposed to be a misdirection play, why is the ball carrier directly behind Pelwecki? Shouldn’t he be going somewhere — ANYWHERE — else?

    Also, I have a hard time believing the defender’s preoccupation with #55 after one stinking three-yard carry.

  3. I think timbuys has it right– Hawker is not carrying a grapefruit but is carrying out a poor fake. I’m looking for a pass to Palooka in the flat.

  4. Pelwicki’s practice with Heather “Belicheck” Burns and that beat-off NBA player finally pays off, except that he will probably drop the ball

  5. If Pelwecki is the intended receiver, drunk ref should immediately throw the flag as Pelwecki is ineligible. Also, I’m mystified by Whigham’s inability to draw modern football helmets. His look slab-sided, like those old pencil sharpener helmets I used to get out of vending machines when I was a kid.

  6. Hawker might be carrying hard, tiny plastic football cheerleaders throw out after TD’s. When my boys were young, adults who caught them would give to my kids or other kids nearby. I always thought big deal, why would my kid want that? They got 5 more of those crappy things at home.

  8. […] as Nick is the real decoy. Indeed, it’s looking grim for Oakwood as not only were they focused on the secret Pelwecki, but now they are eyeball explodingly shocked by this additional dissimulation. Well done, […]

  9. […] Again with the confusing numbers: Filllllllllion has been shown as #9 to date but the guy carrying the big croissant behind Soto is wearing a double-digit number. The […]

  10. What is truly amazing besides this plot being stretched at Laffy Taffy proportions is that The Incredible Hulk can fit a football helmet on his head. And he knows the plays too. Will wonders ever cease.
