This Week in Milford

October 17, 2018

Milford @ Jefferson: Haiku


The Jeffs are wearing

Helmets that look like Dartmouth’s

Or pencil sharpeners


Another team dressed in

White at home, like the Cowboys

Or Bayou Bengals


When did the players

Stop wearing wristbands and switch

Over to Fitbits?


Tiki Jansen won’t

Be getting torched on this play

Saw that pun coming


But wait, he’s been flagged

For making a reacharound

Not in the shower


Marty Moon cannot

Believe his eyes; dancing ice cubes

In front of floodlights


That’s liquor talking

It’s just some good old lens flare

Lay off the rotgut




  1. Rubin seems really, really, bored with football. Since, as usual, he’s hiding the plot waiting for the Big Surprise, what’s the point?

  2. Someone apparently told Rubin that going for it on fourth down is the smart thing to do these days. Hopefully, that’s the lesson Gil will take from this sequence of events and he will simply not use a punter, freeing Joe to do whatever it was that he was otherwise doing before joining the team two or three games into the season.

  3. Challenge the pass interference, Gil! You can do that in Canadian football and that ball they are playing with IS a Canadian football (stripes all the way around).

  4. Also, I heartily approve of today’s all-haiku post! Major kudos teenchy.

  5. What’s this? Actual game action?

  6. The commentary includes a little of everything, including a slight against Dartmouth. (Ivy League Lightbulb Joke: “How many Dartmouth students does it take to screw in a light bulb?” The answer is “None! Hanover does not have electricity yet.” The answer for Yale is the same though with a different justification, namely that “New Haven looks better in the dark.”)

  7. 1. I thought Jansen was the punter-turned-long snapper?

    2. Stop me if you’ve heard this one — A Milford player’s personal life issues cause him to be the goat of a close game, causing Kaz/Gilberto/Teammates to probe into said player’s life like the FBI

  8. I bet Marty has nasty breath that you can smell through the radio. That ability did precede Smellivision for you Bugs Bunny fans out there.

  9. Hitorque– Jansen was a cornerback turned safety. Read my last post on Saturday the 6th.

  10. vaganova @6: Not meant as a slight toward Dartmouth, just that very few teams wear helmet striping like that. I recall the Illini wearing similar in my youth and will hyperlink a picture if I can find one.

    hitorque @7: Gee, ya think? ;)

  11. Lightbulb changing jokes are the best. It so happens that yesterday I changed a particularly inconveniently located lightbulb. I required no additional assistance aside from a surprisingly robust stool that Ingvar Kamprad sold me for something like four bucks.

    My favorite version of the joke? How many drummers does it take to change a lightbulb? Eleven. One to change it and ten to say how Steve Gadd would’ve done it better.

  12. My favorite lightbulb joke may be Princeton: one to mix the martinis and another to call the electrician. For my own school, the one in Massachusetts, the answer is “One. He holds the light bulb while the world revolves around him.”
