This Week in Milford

Land of the Free, Home of the Mud


Two high school girls power tripping on who they get to include and exclude from their clique? One high school girl practically begging to be let into their clique then getting pissy when they don’t let her? Riveting reading!

Just you wait: Linda will have her revenge! She’s gonna tank the season for the Lady Mudlarks. Kind of ironic given that we’re coming up on the centennial of the Black Sox scandal.  Staring into the bleachers is her prearranged signal to Arnold Rothstein that the fix is in (or is it switching her glove from her right to her left hand?). Pity she didn’t time that a little better; that sharply hit ground ball off her toe is gonna ruin her meal ticket out of this tank town.

Without that volleyball scholly to fall back on, Linda will be doomed to stay in Milford and stew about things that happened to her in high school for the rest of her life. Maybe she can spit in the brisket when she’s waiting the mean girls’ tables at Bob’s BBQ.

A rare glimpse of the Milford mascot atop the scoreboard there. Let’s blow it up so we can get a better look.


More like a turkey than a lark, the better to fit this plot.


  1. She shouldn’t just say “you won’t listen”…she should say “you are too cool to listen”; I gotta’ admit that I’ve never seen an infield with two lefties other than the pitcher and first baseman or are RW just tryin’ to add that kids Sunday comic game to the art by going righty-lefty-righty and the caption ‘find at least six differences between these panels’? It’s ok if they did; I always enjoyed that game. Does that make me cool? Where’s MY damn button?, dammit….

  4. I’m sure Tyler is long ago over the so called snub. Get over yourselves. He has.

  5. There was a story I read once about a left handed third basemen. At one point he was on a team with another leftie 3rd baseman named Pharoah Yannuck. They had to move Yannuck over to short. Don’t remember the main character, title or Arther, but I think the cover was blue.

  6. “or Arther,” Someone has been spending too much time over at… :)

  7. Teenchy, your kind words are gold to me. I am nothing without the readership. Stay humble, stay hungry, I’ve learned. You da Man, as always.

    Like the rest of the readership, speaking of which, I just love this sleight of hand that Linda is displaying in P2-P3. Not only did she manage to switch hands in 2.5, as Frank mentioned, she graduated from the Swiffer picker-upper in P2, went to the Port-o-Let in 2.5 and came back with a DiGiorno Pepperoni model she had stashed behind the toilet paper dispenser. Naturally, ya gotta use the damn thing, shut the tailgate we learned in baseball and softball but I’m sure Mimi will go over that in practice. As Teenchy pointed out, misplayed ground balls will ruin her toenail polish.

  8. […] lose in the opening round of the playdowns to a supposedly inferior opponent, apparently. That Black Sox analogy from a couple of weeks ago doesn’t seem so far off […]
