This Week in Milford

September 14, 2018

Oh buddy you’ve got more then 2 problems

Panel 1 features 2 guys talking to each other while not looking at each other. And the paint scheme didnt go too well, so why the HELL are we wasting panel space on it?? 10 minutes of watching kids paint. Really scintilating television. I’m signing up for the Milford Channel asap. Then the cops show up. Boy thats a surprise. Blocking off a street for say, a block party, requires written approval from your local authorities. You cant just take a horse and stick it in the middle of a street. Hey, maybe I’ll block off Michigan Avenue for a protest tomorrow. How you think that’ll go? 10 minutes? Maybe 5.

Aaand back at football, the boys are stretching while Big Yellow Hair Guy finishes Gils sentence. They do that a lot in this strip. One person says something and the other one finishes the thought. How often does that happen in real life? My guess is –no kicker, and no punter, and the solution is– use a lineman to do both. They used to do that all the time in the pros. Paul Hornung was a punter as well as a halfback. Who was Joe Recichar? He held the NFL record for the longest field goal made, at 58 yards, until Tom Dempsey broke it with a 63-yarder. Recichar was a lineman for the Colts. (Dempseys record has since been broken) I once answered a trivia contest in the local newspaper regarding that fact, and had my name in the paper. Cool.




  1. Can we establish a little bit of continuity, please?

  2. That’s Steve – don’t feel sorry for me! – Boone! In addition to losing his arm in an accident while serving in Iraq, he creeped on Molly Kinsella after she tried to help him improve his golf game. What a guy!

    edited to add: hope no one minds me adding a tag for Steve!

  3. One small correction. Paul Horning was a place kicker. I’m old as dirt so I am him play back in the day.

  5. robmize, you always come through as I was just laughin’ my ass off at your observations. If Gil EVER becomes a vampire, I want YOU to be the one to open the coffin and drive the stake in his heart. You are a master at it. I’d sleep better in the haunted mansion that night.
    And downpuppy, you showin’ why you’re downpuppy with this excellent video that captures the absurdity in P3 of my post the other day. You always shine, My Man.
    The other comments were excellent as always and gave a good scouring of the matters at hand. Keep Democracy and Free Speech going, folks.
