This Week in Milford

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all you Thorpsters!

It looks like Gil and Kaz are ready to turn the page and start fresh with basketball. We are all looking forward to another journey on the hardwood and the exploits of the youthful Mudlark cagers. 2018 is going to be a great year. I’ve got a feeling about this.

Oh, but first there’s one more turd left over from 2017 and it’s today’s insufferable, self-congratulatory stinker! The previous strip told us there were two more football games and a talent show. We learn via post season hive fiving that Milford won the final game at Valley Tech by 20. That’s it. The record book entry for the 2017 football season will be brief and sketchy.

As far as the Sotos go, all we need to know is that Gil helped solve their problem. Yeah, whatever. He waited until the last minute, got Kaz to ask Kelly to google Uncle Gary and then apparently reminded Richard Soto Sr. that he needed to participate in raising his son because Connie was basically useless.

Oh, how proud we are of Gil!


By the way, Gil, is that an ANUS brand laptop on your desk? Seems fitting considering where most of your coaching and mentoring wisdom originates from.




  1. Suggested alternate responses to the question “What turns a good football season into a really great one?”…

    “Missing the playdowns so you can take it easy through the holidays, but with a good enough record that nobody starts calling for your firing?”

    “Getting so shitfaced that you barely remember the last two games of the season?”

    “I’m guessing ‘the mere presence of GIl and Kaz, God’s gift to Mfnrd athletics.'”

  2. One more…

    “Capping it off with an awkward ‘WAP!’ delivered in a way no human being actually does, and with you using one of your trademark fake hands!”

  3. Who is the best lineman? I don’t think we’ve met. It’s not Rick is it? The guy who played maybe four games? Look up High Fiven MF by the band Local H. Gil and Kaz’s haircut been the same since at least ‘83.

  4. Point well-taken the other day, Jive Turkey. I liked your tongue-in-cheek assessment. BTW, I also liked your on-point evaluation of Gil’s top today. I have to say it does not EVEN compare(ha) with that long-lost-third-Everly-Brother hairstyle he sported in the ’60’s and ’70’s. You could ski off the front of his scalp.
    And I liked Moon Mullins’ take on the Ronettes in relation to Rick, Jr. I think another appropriate song on the set list at said talent show, though the Villain has(I assume) long since blown town, is “Hit The Road, Jack.” Put on some shades, use the Milford cheerleaders as your backup, pretend you’re pounding on the piano, voila, Carnegie Hall, here we come.
    And, ned, keen observation on that ANUS inscription. When I went to take a look, I said, no, no, surely Thorpiverse would not leave the door THAT wide open. I pity the poor deer with a broken leg trying to escape the tiger. Well, as long as their brand is not on the basketball at the start of the game. Try explaining THAT one to the refs/an opponent such as New Thayer, Oakwood, etc.
    Well, the basketball goal at the end of the tunnel no doubt indicates basketball season is FINALLY upon us, even if it’s long past
    Time to munch down on my sausage biscuit I got off the Dollar Menu at McD’s. Hope the coffee is still warm.

  5. Meanwhile, John Wolford consumed a bowl of Kelk fast enough to get into the NFL Draft

  6. Nice catch, Downpuppy! Looks like True had a good opportunity to learn the QB position from the bench this season.
