This Week in Milford

Party time

Wow – Jorge scores 2 points in his debut and on Groundhog Day its cause for a celebration. He gets invited to Andre Ruffins house for a party, and also can bring his sister Paloma. Wonder how long the party will last; I bet all next week. Only in this strip can a Groundhog Day event take a week, just like the movie. Then they ask a question about their differing accents and I wonder – if shes there, why not ask her?? Evidently shes not at the party. Oh well. Time will tell.

Again we’re reminded of the extremely slow pace of the basketball season. Theyve played 2 games each?? On Feb 2. Hey, hoops out here start with Thanksgiving tourneys and full skeds in December, then holiday tourneys over Christmas break, twice a week in January, and another month of games in February before March Madness playoffs. Should have 20 games in the books by now, more then enough to figure out if these 2 newbies are the real deal or not. Instead we dick around till the lawnmower is getting more exercise then the nets in the gym; playing football on Christmas for chrissake. They dont worry about concussions at Milford; they worry about frostbite. (Oh shut up Gary)

Panel 2 features Jorge’s receding hair on his scalp; did they double check his ID when he came over to make sure his age is 17 and not 71? We may need that discount double check guy.




  1. Don’t bring Paloma! Surely the party will get raided because, ya know, she’s Puerto Rican! Is that Gil laid out on the porch? Hard to tell but he loves those Long Islands!

  2. Before it’s too late, I want to wish a happy Groundhog Day to our own Ned Ryerson. Bing!
    (Can you believe it’s the 25th anniversary of that movie’s debut?)

  3. Well hey, now that we know Paloma has a Spanish accent, her accusation against the ref makes a lot more sense. Would’ve been nice if Rubin had introduced that detail BEFORE her encounter with Mr. Baldy.

  4. And a loss in the opener calls for a lynching behind the bleachers?
    Thank God we’ll never know as “Career Night” Padilla saves the day, thanks in part to the flying rubber Professor Brainard welded on his Converses at halftime. See, all you anti-mathniks who asked in high school “when are we ever going to use this?”, yeah, you know who you are. Those quadratic equations came in handy when Milford basketball was down on the mat and the evilmongers were on a 10-2 run. Padilla literally jumped out of the gym and could have gotten more rebounds(unsurprisingly had 30 blocked shots-La Junta never knew what hit ’em) but got tangled up in one of the banners on the wall. Expect the Milford Enquirer to name Padilla “Player of the Week” next week, right under the Wedding Announcements but above Farm Report.
    What makes it interesting is The Dove’s observation that the refs are out to nail Puerto Ricans which, for the moment, has flown out of the gym along with Jorge’s sneakers. Jorge debunked that notion in this game. Like any good coach will tell you, if you can jump 50 feet in the air, as long as you don’t hit the vents, the referees won’t be a factor.
    It’s Miller time, Jorge. Whoa, I forgot, you’re not drinking age. Okay, have a Grape Nehi on me.
