This Week in Milford

Meet The Press

Filed under: Bobby Howry, Coach Kaz, Coffee Cantina, freak hands, Gil Thorp, Pointy Fingers — nedryerson @ 6:41 am

I doubt we’ll ever know who the member of the press is, this bearded reporter covering the billboard beat. He served his purpose by writing up the Robby Howry story and his editor printed it. So his work is done and Gil and Kaz have seen Robby’s delusions in black and white. See ya later, Bearded Reporter. Say hi to Marjie for us.

Kaz is angry! He wants Gil to fire back against this fractured media accounting of RobbyBobby’s split with Milford athletics. But Gil must remind hotheaded Kaz with the FREAK POINTY FINGER that, no, Gil can’t just fire back and set the record straight. Because….

We’ll hear more for Gil maybe, but where is Marty? The media of Milford is buzzing with something juicy which could chip away at Gil’s standing. C’mon Marty, you need to track down Robby and get him on your show. We know you’ll do a face plant eventually but you’ve got to strike now. We know there’s no way that happens because we need to talk about kettlehead.



  1. I’m seriously considering shaving part of my beard to get that long mustache/beard connector. Can’t grow the top for the full wolfman look Mr. Reporter has, but it could up the intimidation factor 38%.

  2. The reporter looks like football assistant coach Matt Shaw. I guess he has to do something in the offseason…

    Rubin’s a newspaper man, did he think about how it would play in real life if a former one or two year student manager tried to convince the public that an 8-time state championship winning basketball coach and local athletic institution wasn’t committed to winning? Student participates in activity, student is removed from participation in that activity (“canned”? c’mon now…) = student did something wrong in the minds of 95% of the population. And it’s true in 99% of cases where this does happen. No one is going to care about Howry’s Al Davis-esque proclamations, they’ll only care if Gil did something morally or legally wrong or if he allowed players to do the same with his knowledge… and even then that is a maybe.

    Perhaps Howry’s public opinion beatdown is coming, which the begs the question as to why we wasted any time on this rather than have any depiction of the girls’ team.

  3. Speaking of facial hair, Kaz’s sideburns seem rather aggressive today. Also, are they in Kaz’s office or is Kaz sitting in Gil’s chair?

    Also, assuming the reporter noted Gil’s refusal to comment, who else did he interview for this story? From what we’ve been shown so far, this guy has done little more than record and relay everyone’s pat answer. Arrogant Editor needs to get on the stick and assign this one to Marjie.

  4. Presumably Gil can’t say anything because of student privacy rules – you know, the ones that were flagrantly violated during the Holly Dobbs reality show plot.
    And, yeah, Kaz could make an anonymous call to the reporter and suggest he talk to Max Bacon about Bobby’s contributions. If Kaz can get over January 6th, 2015, at Lewistown – I’M STILL WAITING ON MY TOWEL!!!

  5. Gil’s ethics are admirable, but there is a way out of the problems of privacy rules and of blowing the cover on someone who was a minor at the time of the offense. He or Kaz can tell the reporter what happened on “deep background.” This hands the reporter and editor the hot potato, but pretty much eliminates the possibility of favorable treatment of Howry.

  6. In other words, Gil, stop being such a pussy. You get get this kid to STFU without breaking the law.

  8. Gil really can’t. He’s senile by now. Brain dead bastard!

  9. No more guessing. The bearded reporter has to be Vox writer Matthew Yglesias, aka SadBeard.

  10. P3: “only YOU can prevent forest fires, gil”
