This Week in Milford

Hey at least theyre Playing!

First panel Gil announces he followed (stalked) Mike home; well I guess Mike knew about it so it wasnt stalking but still… and Mike s depression is now out in the open, after we farted away half the hoops season trying to figure out what was wrong, AND WE STILL DONT KNOW WHATS CAUSING THE DEPRESSION!!

By the way, nice pepperoni pizza in P1. even though I dont like it (Im a cheese and sausage guy).

And hey, maybe a road game as a reward!? These guys play games less often then the Bears kicker missed field goals. ( 5 games, 7 missed kicks if your keeping score)

So Filion gets to play but the 4 guys who were in on the Fire Gil cover-up (no pun intended) get to sit. As if they havent done enough sitting already. The federal government is busier then the Mudlarks, and they were on shutdown til Trump told them to go back for 3 weeks.

Theyve played 5 games since December 21. FIVE. 2 in December, both losses. Then Bobby Howry put up the billboard.  Then they played 3 games in January. They lost all 3.

0-5 after 7 weeks of action. If Milford was a strip club theyd file for bankruptcy.

Filion was slipping in the classroom on January 4. 34 days ago. And it took this long to get counseling. I’d have sent him on January 6, and resumed playing 2 games a week like every other freakin school. By now he’d be back to normal and contributing on a team tuning up for the playdowns. Guess what — my state has its final regular season games this weekend. And these dopes have laced it up 5 times. Whoopee.

We still have the Howry issue to deal with, but its not looking like Filion is in on it like I predicted. And will Milford go winless and can Thorp as Howry wants?? Some of us are saying — Be my guest!

By the way, the groundhog predicted 6 more weeks of bad Milford basketball. His shadow was blocked —- by the billboard.




  1. I’ll be the first to predict that the depleted lineup, with a rejuvenated Mike Filion, upsets the Tilden Tilwemeetagains! Or at least plays well and loses on a Tilden last-second three-pointer heartbreaker heave from half-court.

    I’m also glad to see Gil and Mimi sent back the Red Lily Leaf Beetle Pizza Special the waitress is dutifully carrying away. Looks like it might have been a bit too crunchy.

  2. I like the groundhog crack and the cut of your jib, rob. Great job.
    Gil is trying to look all Jim Tressell while eating an… anchovie pizza? What a sicko! Jim Tressell? Good luck Gil. If coaches wear jocks you couldn’t hold Gerry Faust’s!

  3. There was a story in the Glob Today about a cop visiting a couple strippers/hookers at the Foxy Lady
    30 years ago the guys I worked with went there 4 a good time

  5. Mimi’s really scrutinizing that glass in P2. Is she looking to usurp Gil’s position as spokesman for Milford Beverage Warehouse?

  6. Anthrax, I’ve been laughing on and off all day at your remark. Priceless, My Man.
    You DO understand you’ve just given me a few more ideas to keep my warped sense of humor alive and breathing, don’t you(ha)?
    Andy, are you goofin’ on Elvis, hey baby
    Are we havin’ fun?

  7. If only the Gil Thorp Insta-Counseling Method would catch on, America’s mental health crisis would be over in a heartbeat.

  8. Are you sure that’s the first time Thorp has not four upperclassmen “not in uniform” ? What about the 1992-93 season when Kenny McCord, Lucas cobb, and at least one other player were all out with the flu ? If I remember right, the JV team had to

    fill in the gaps—it was that bad !
