This Week in Milford

June 16, 2018

I Missed the Sign


Today’s strip is just three panels of “Kevin Pelwecki, the most clueless kid at Milford High.”  Where was Pelwecki last year when The Hurricane blew in from Kingsbrook and the girls from Central showed up with signs? We know they were on the field together at least once (no, make that twice) so it’s not like Kevin couldn’t have been aware of Ryan’s talent… or his reputation. Van Auken might have been going to anger management classes instead of those camps.

Finally, what sequence of events sends Pelwecki into Gil’s office in full uniform, getting all pissy about the attention Ryan got from one college?  Again, has he forgotten about the talent Van Auken showed before he got to Milford and since, and how he’s only turned serious attention to baseball in the past few weeks?

The Real Kevin Pelwecki, if you’re out there reading this, I hope you didn’t cheese Rubin off too badly IRL.  Your character deserves better. ;-)




  1. teenchy is of course right. This is why I have consistently referred to “Palooka,” to distinguish him from the real life Kevin Pelwecki.

  2. KP:”hey coach…why aren’t I being recruited like that? I’ve got 9 homers.”
    Dildo:”Couple that with the one single on an infield error, and 127 strikeouts, you’re a real catch”
    KP:”Doesn’t my hair count for anything/”
    Dildo:”Yeah, the recruiters can tell from across the field what a dipshit you are”
