This Week in Milford

No kicker? No problem!

Every time we start a new storyline  we have high hopes and invariably they are dashed a few days later. Its now sinking in that we’re gonna have to deal with this kicker situation until Christmas. The Mudlarks take 3 months to figure out what everyone else takes a day or 2 to.

P1– I had said before that it didnt matter who recovered the muff– it was 4th down, so either way Oakwood had the ball.

How on earth is #73 on Milford laying FACE-UP with his left arm on his stomach?? How do you dive backwards when the ballcarrier is coming at you? The Milford helmet to his right is in a position that the players whole body must be underneath #73. So he was lined up to #73’s Right, and dove Underneath him –trying to stop the blue ballcarrier to the right. And we have white legs facing the same direction as the Oakwood offensive line! How the hell did they get there?? Plus some other white body parts behind and to the right of White Legs. A miserable panel as a whole. Nothing makes sense. And the ref is standing in the pile. How he sees the goal line is beyond me. He’ll need new feet after this play, since his original feet are now in pieces from 8 bodies laying on him.

P2– nice that Oakwoods D-line has such a huge gap between the nose tackle and DT. I would drive a truck through that line, but Gil says throw the ball. Good thing Oakwood doesnt bother to cover the TE– usually a linebacker will stay with him; but P3 isnt big enough for 2 players.



  1. Comments from the Oakwood sideline:

    “Yeah, their punter is illin’.”

    “Oh no, a strike to TE Jason, and now — Weibe illin’.”

  2. Better a muffed snap than a snapped… uh, you know.

    I think #73 is face down, the left arm belongs to the Oakwood player, and its across #73’s back. But I haven’t played Twister in decades so it’s anybody’s guess.

    Today’s post will be up directly.

  3. This is one of those times where the full color version of the strip is so intriguing. It looks like there is a white wall on the field about ten yards behind the Milford line and panel three looks like it ran out of time before the chief had a chance to draw a background. Finally, it’s too bad this is a road game and we aren’t being treated to the Milford’s very, very red uniforms to contrast with Oakwood’s teal.
