This Week in Milford

How Cool Is This? Too.

Filed under: huge earrings, TCFS — nedryerson @ 6:12 am


This season has really put us through the ringer. However, just when you thought it was safe to drink a hard lemonade and enjoy some golf shenanigans, here come the PLAYDOWNS! Well, maybe we will see playdowns, as in actual sports competition on the field. We might just see more of this panel 3 nonsense: Too Cool randos (bagel salesmen, screenwriters, bowlers, etc.) paying homage to the softball champs.

Shout out to the two Lady Mudlarks (probably Jamila and unknown teammate with a feminine take on the Bobby Bittman hairstyle). You got three panels to tell a story of pleasant surprise that the school follows the softball team (and model a weirdly childish backpack with a frog or bear or something.) But your glory is shortlived as we had to go right back to TCFS. Which TCFS dude is holding the HISTORY 101 textbook? Did we meet him before or is he a very successful teenage worm farmer or other Too Cool feature?





  1. Does Milford bring in kids from the “special “ school to participate in school sports and other activities? That would explain why there’s a teenager with a backpack that normally a three year old would use

  2. This will be the first playdown appearance by the Milford softball team since 2004, when Jessie Jensen (now Jessie Dowd, I presume) coached the team and Joe Clifford pitched (though Jensen only allowed him to do so in the regular season). It is the first playdown appearance by any Milford team since the Lady Mudlark basketball team lost to Parkland in 2016. Mimi is lapping Gil…

  3. Looks like a nose job is in order in P3.

  4. Nose job? Heaven forfend! Nancy’s nose has been the highlight of the season ever since its first starring role in Panel 2 on May 7 when cubism came to Mfnrd!

  5. Someone needs to read the banner for the dumb jockettes. Amen Bobby Joe. There’s a line about that nose in WC Fields movie The Bank Dick. “How’d you like to have a nose like that full of nickels?” Even today that’d be worth a lot of dough. I’d rather be where WC is than in Milford.

  6. Aren’t classes in the ‘hundreds’ series college level (like History 101)? I think of high school being single digits (e.g. English 2).

  7. P3: “They’re somewhere in New Zealand, they’ll be flying a shitload of hours to get here. They’ll be dog-tired, game oughta be a cinch…”

  8. Yes, History 101 is a college text. Iris Beedie used it in her 14th year at Santa Royale
