This Week in Milford

November 30, 2018

Will the artist who drew Panel 3 please stand up?

So we hit the reset button on football on…. November 30. Tomorrow is December first. They havent played a game since.. November 16, 2 weeks ago. In that time frame my state played the semifinals and finals of the playoffs and is DONE!! DONE! And these guys are not only wearing their game unis to practice (again!!) they have their helmets on the ground next to them while they stretch. Nobody does that. When your on the field you wear your helmet, and on the sidelines you take it off.

So the dudes from New Thayer decided to call a truce after that scene? Ha. Methinks its just a cover for a sneak attack in the future.

Now— what the hell is with Panel 3?? We have the 10-yard line FIVE YARDS FROM THE GOAL LINE!!! And the end zone looks really skinny, with MILFORD literally taking up the WHOLE DAMN SPACE!!

Holy crap. I mean, how many damn years has this strip been getting drawn, and the clown in charge of drawing it, knowing its a  SPORTS strip, doesnt even draw the field correctly?? How hard is it to draw a football field?? If I was this dudes art teacher, years ago, in high school, and this dude went to my school where my football field was on the damn campus to look at EVERY SINGLE FUCKIN DAY FOR 4 FUCKIN YEARS and he drew this panel in my class, I would not only immediately flunk him, I would force him to eat the paper on which he drew this field, then shove him down the nearest toilet and push the FLUSH lever, and THEN, I would stick my head in a microwave and turn it on high.

Only then would I feel the least bit better.

Nothing further your honor.


  1. Is that Gil suiting up in P2? What a cheating prick! In his defense, he’s still has eligibility left. Because that dumb ass was never eligible when he was in high school! Glory days my ass!

  2. Where should we put the date on today’s strip? How about top dead center? Yeah, that seems right.

    I would love to have seen the detailed negotiations that lead to this so called truce. Maybe I don’t have the best sense of these things but I think a minor assault followed by the assaultees fleeing, while still filming somehow, would maybe get five minutes on the local nightly news. Film at eleven indeed.

  3. What gets me most about Panel 3 is the shadows. It’s November, the trees are bare, and the sun is with 10 degrees of vertical.
    Not knowing football is one thing for an artist, but not knowing where the sun is?
