This Week in Milford

September 8, 2018

Thay You, Thay Me


Coquettish smiles from Gil?  A “WTF is this?” hand gesture from Kaz?  Towel-snapping incidents in the showers?  Oh yeah, Tiki Jansen’s fitting in, alright.  It’s probably too soon to apply the True Standish Principle to young Jansen but he’s sure to have an impact somewhere before long. His ex-teammates at New Thayer probably won’t be expecting the veer this time.  Maybe Gil will have him help implement Steve Owen’s old umbrella defense, but not until mid-season after the Mudlarks have had their ears pinned back a couple of times.

I just played the Pantheon of Mysterious Objects card on what looks like an outdoor executive office chair behind Kaz or maybe a blocking sled, in which case I’d have expected to see Steve Boone riding it. (edit: Then again, it may be an indoor office chair, with Kaz standing awkwardly in front of it. Thanks, Tim. Text and tags adjusted accordingly.)



  1. I doubt the Milford Tank Towners would rue the day Gil moved away. If only. Remember the movie All the Right Moves? Details may be sketchy but I remember the local high school team coached by Craig T Nelson losing an important game. The towns rabble rousers trashed Coaches yard. I’d love it if that happened to Gil.

  2. Pretty sure that’s Gil’s chair, which was also depicted in Friday’s strip.

    As poorly drawn and confusing as the background in panel two is, you gotta admit the Chief admirably captured the frolicsome nature of the ever antic Milford High locker room in P3. I think it’s the awkward splay of Tiki’s fingers that really sells it.

    So they’re indoors, and Kaz is standing in front of a huge Prairie Style window? I may need to adjust the tags accordingly. – teenchy

  3. I look forward to the diamond robbery, with Nathan Fillion as the stoolie who spends most of the season bleeding to death.
