This Week in Milford

Let’s Hope Gil Doesn’t Bring In Social Services Again


We’ve been down this road before, a little over a year and a half ago to be exact. Nosy classmates stick their noses where they don’t belong, Gil gets wind and the next thing you know another Milford High kid’s getting his family busted up like…uh, well, another family that got busted up.  And what’s up with Andre and Movie Boy Weird Joe Bolek getting so chummy so quickly? (I thought Andre’s first word balloon had an extraneous comma.) Are they gonna turn into this year’s Ken Brown and Mike Granger?

Why should Gil know about Tiki’s excessive tardiness? Is there some unwritten rule that Milford athletes who are chronically late to school get kicked off the team, or suspended for the first half against a cupcake non-conference opponent, or something?  Gil suspended Barry Bader for getting ejected but made him travel with the team; maybe there’s some similar obscure punishment in Tiki’s future. (Sorry, I left this sentence unfinished last night.)

Stranger things have happened, so if this ends with a GoFundMe to replace Tiki’s beater Plymouth with something newer so he can get his sister to school on time, then I’m cool with it. Sorry to keep y’all waiting on today’s post.




  1. Wake Forrest was on TV again this afternoon. No Tru Standish again. Must be red shirted or inactive. The coaching staff must not have watched his Milford tapes.

  2. Now that the punter plot has ended – or is at least inactive for a while – I will go the Bolek route and compare it to a movie: it’s a deconstructed/reconstructed version of “Rudy”. In the original, a kid with no talent but a ton of heart overcame obstacle after obstacle by determination and sheer force of will until he accomplished his goal (to Jerry Goldsmith music). In the Milford version, a kid with a little talent and no passion joined the team after a coach begged him to, overcoming no obstacles at all, and not accomplishing a goal because he never had a goal to start with.

  4. teenchy, I don’t know about you but HOW MANY DAYS DO WE NEED TO TELL A GUY TO GET HIS ACT TOGETHER AND GET TO CLASS ON TIME????????????? The 1st time, Okay, you’re not going to get bawled out over the controversial play, you’re going to get a lecture on your tardiness. Still think that’s the high school counselor’s job, but OK.

    But now, this is getting too Room 222ish and as much as I liked the show, we really don’t need repeated alternating scenes between Andre and Joe on the one hand and Gil and Tiki on the other. This M.A.S.H format DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!! Are we going to bring in Colonel Potter to bawl him out and if he doesn’t straighten up and fly right, he’ll be shoveling up Colonel Potter’s horse’s droppings? Honestly.

    Move on, Gil. We get the point.
