This Week in Milford

A Deflection… Until Monday


Holy carp, three solid days of basketball action!  How are we gonna snark on this?  I mean, besides the obvious weekend cliffhanger, that is.  Let’s try to break down the action:

  1. Who is passing the ball to whom in P1?  Looks like it’s Hatter #23 that’s making the pass to the guy in front of Mudlark #11 Filion who, I’m guessing, will make the deflection.
  2. Paul Beaudry (if that’s supposed to be who was leading the “late rush”) wore #4 for the Mudlarks in the home opener.  Either Paul dyed his locks in the interim or that’s another kid wearing #4 on the road.  It could happen.
  3. Deflecting the pass to the opponent isn’t exactly “swatting it away.” If this leads to the Hatter making the basket and giving Danbury the one-point win, that will give Filion even more to stew over on the bus ride home and during me time.

Then what?  Then who needs to toughen up?  Then who goes all postal thinking Two Billboards Outside Milford are about them?  Then who tracks down Older Bobby Howry via Skyborne Advertising and stuffs his Adderall where the sun doesn’t shine?  This and more will be revealed to us sometime before Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, but probably not before the start of spring training.



  1. Tell me, why don’t ya. How does a Gil Thorp coached team erase a double digit second half deficit? A guy whose favorite offensive set is the four corners. I’m not buying it.

  2. Usually it works better to shoot with your eyes open, but hey, this is Mfnrd.

  3. Teenchy, without the basketball, #23 does an admirable job of Joe Cocker at Woodstock performing “With a Little Help From My Friends”. He’s just missing his backup singers.

    “…OOOOOHHHHHHHH, GET BY, WITHALITTLE, HELP from my FRIENDS,” Joe thrashing here, there, and everywhere.

    Marty”…credit Joe with the assist as Coach T. finds a way to lose another one.”

    I understand Ten Years After is Milford’s next opponent.
