This Week in Milford

The Plot Congeals

Filed under: Gil Thorp, golf — nedryerson @ 6:55 am


The mystery couple in the Audi will be dealt with later and we’re going to settle down into some sweet little girl golfing action. Check out Kylie and her follow through! This should keep us entertained all summer, no problem! What? We need something more for to make summer tolerable? Yes we do.

Just in time, here comes our old pal Jaquan Case, interrupting yet another future LPGA champ in the making. We last saw Jaquan way back in the summer of 2017 when he and his trainer Trey Davis wandered into Milford to get Jaquan back into shape for the NBA. They ran into The Secret Pelwecki (or True was still around, maybe?) and quarterback whisperer/coaching savant Heather Burns. Jaquan ran a few pass patterns and started dreaming of going to the NFL before Heather guided him to graduate school.

So I take it that now Jaquan has a master’s degree in history and he must be basking in the glory of that achievement, ready to tell Gil all about his exciting life in the history game. That’s just great, because Gil has been coaching golf for all of five minutes and he needs a distraction (until an unattended Kylie starts swinging wildly and shanking balls all over the driving range while the other junior golfers dive for cover).

So now the “golf story” has two subplots “brewing”. Sorry Kylie, you’re just going to have to figure golf out on your own.



  1. Someone posted on here a few weeks ago that R&W don’t read the comments posted here but I think that’s bullshit….they do indeed read them because a while back I posted that even a story about that stupid NBA player would be better than Mimi and those TCFS idiots, and, well, here we are. Mystery people in SUV will have to wait for now.

  2. *gasp*

    Jaquan wants to become a professional lacrosse player now… and only Gil can help him!

  3. Franku, as I learned speaking as a coach, if the wolves in the stands are cat-calling, it’s just because they want you on their side. And I like your observations about R & W reading the comments.
    I think we got a good thing going here. As the old saying goes, imitation is the best sort of flattery. I think our TWIMers are top-notch and hilarious and we got people taking notice. TWIMers like you, My Friend.
    And when Ned covers nicely with another on-point post for another TWIM commentator on some urgent business, that just accentuates the team we have around here. THAT will make anybody notice.

    Well, time to go to Milford Putt Putt with Kylie. I can get that ball through the windmill, fer sure. She doesn’t stand a chance doing it in 3 strokes.

  4. So much for the salt mines. Another child left behind. The only salt in Gil’s future is the rim of his 10 bloody Mary’s.

  5. Once you see what I saw in panel two, you can’t unsee it.

  6. “Pardon me, Coach Thorp, but you’re sucking on my elbow.”

    Thanks for covering for me, Ned, as I recover from my bender with Mr. Bakst in Charleston.
