This Week in Milford

June 30, 2018

Coach Colvin needs to see a trainer, amirite?


Where’s Rick Scott or Heather Burns when you need them?  Poor Coach Delano Colvin has suffered an horrific ankle sprain or worse (link is not for the squeamish).  Gil may have run into Delano on the Mudlarks’ trip back from Bluffton earlier in the season. That might lead me to believe that “State U.” is the one in Raleigh; however, a GPA of “almost 3.5” looks like it won’t cut the mustard there, being a reach at best.

While Pelwecki gets called to the office over the intercom (instead of Gil having the message sent to Pelwecki’s next period teacher, as he is often wont to do) we get spirited back to the Trumpet office in what is essentially a tell, don’t show repeat of Thursday’s panel 3.

Meanwhile, in an assisted living facility in an unnamed town, Herk the Mauler watches old wrasslin’ highlights and wonders when his rematch with Beau Dandy is coming up. Here’s a wrasslin’ highlight from one of my all time favorite heels.





  1. Dig those pork chop side burns on coach Colvin that has developed in a couple days. He’s no jive turkey.

  2. P1: the only way for a person to sit at a desk and get their right foot into that position is to have an uncommonly long leg with at least three knees, one of which would require a u-joint.
    P2: the only possible progress would involve Dafne taking all her notes and drafts and putting a trash can to its intended use.
    P3: the letter begins “This is Coach Colvin at State U. How quick can you get here and help me get out of this chair and into an orthopedist’s office?”

  3. At least you didn’t show the Gordon Hayward wreck. My wrestling career ended with a teammate saying “He’s got 2 elbows!”.

    State U f’ball & basketball coaches make absurd salaries & have huge imperial staffs, but baseball? More like a form letter than a dictation.

  4. This guy gets to dictate a letter? Yeah…. ok, I guess this must be the 1980’s. That’s the last time I can remember dictating a business letter like this chucklehead is doing.

  5. All true. In virtually every state, the highest paid public employee is the head football or roundball coach at “State,” while the coaches of peon sports such as baseball get a milk crate for file storage and four months a year of a broom closet for an office. But yet again, Mfnrd is 1959 with cell phones, or in this case, Dicta-Belts.
