This Week in Milford

April 13, 2019

Slugger, Leader, Hat Model

Fellow TWIM bloggers, where are you going for the color version of the strip?  I used to use the Seattle PI comics page but it looks like it might be behind a paywall now and just accessed it again (thanks to loyal TWIMer Downpuppy).  If one of you find it, could you please update this post with a copy?  Check out Jocelynn’s hat in living color.

That is some serious Carmen Miranda-level shit going on right there.  Somehow I doubt she got a free bowl of soup with it.

This wraps up what has been a long week – five strips to play one game.  Something tells me we’ll see two or three games in a single strip more than once and hey, what about those Mudlark boys?  Been kinda nice not hearing about them.  Kinda nice for Mimi to play cheerleader and not field leader, though that may prove problematic down the line.

A couple of odds and ends to bring today’s post to a close:

We carp about playdowns in the Thorpiverse but I only found out recently that here in Pennsylvania we have high school playbacks!  In multiple sports even!  Best as I can tell, they’re kinda like double elimination rounds where you can play your way back into the state playoffs.

Finally, in stumbling around looking for a color version of today’s strip I stumbled upon this blog, which concisely summed up the BRobby Howry arc in far drier fashion than we did here.  Maybe that’s where all of Jason’s readers wandered off to…

  1. All the girls should wear those hats as a show of team solidarity

  2. Classic, Franku. LMAO.

    Teenchy, I was more the Dionne Warwick look singing “That’s What Friends Are For” with Paul McCartney with Mike Mills from REM on keyboards, Mick Jagger on harmonica. Performed at the Milford Outdoor Amphitheater, of course. The Young Rascals, on a reunion tour, the opening act.
    Better get my ticket at Milford Music Mart before the store closes.

  3. Seattle can be a little cranky but I see no signs of paywall

    Duly noted. Worked for me in Chrome but not Firefox. Updating post to include color version. Thanks! – teenchy

  4. Oh, right, Nebus. He has 2 blogs – the other is about math in comic strips. right now I’m after him for being coy about continuous functions

  5. I’m not any sort of fashion expert, but I’m not familiar with the practice of tucking the tops of your ears inside your hat…

  6. Just seeing that hat in black-and-white, and only the bottom part, I’m thinking it may come from the same millinery shop as the one worn by the Pillsbury Doughboy?
