This Week in Milford

Knocked Him Back 11

Filed under: actual action, football, Gil Thorp, Highlight reel, lazy artwork, Tilden — teenchy @ 8:43 am


Damn, Gabe Salazar hit Tilden #53 so hard he turned the double sixes on his jersey into double fives! (Tearaway numbers, perhaps?) Still that doesn’t stop #53’s jawing; it’s a wonder he can see who he’s jawing at with that helmet slammed down so far over his eyes. Between calling the audible and mouthing off at the opponent, Gil has lost control of Gabe. Usually that results in a benching followed by the Mudlarks quickly packing in their season but hey, this show must go on at least for the remainder of this game.

Any momentum Milford had will soon be swept away when dirty #53 takes a dive at Chance Macy. No doubt Chance will be injured severely enough for Charlie Roh to come off the bench and replace him. No doubt, too, that whatever Charlie does or doesn’t do will be met with some passive-aggressive criticism from chirpy Chet Ballard, who will direct that passive aggression toward Gil. Careful, Chet: unless your name is Marty Moon, everyone from Hobart to Wildcat Maris to B/Robby Howry who takes on the Gilfather eventually gets banished to the cornfield.



  1. You’re in rare form today, Teenchy. I loved “Gilfather”.
    It’s days like today to let the other guy do the comedy and just kick back and relax. Your post was HILARIOUS. You da Man.

    I’ll be back tomorrow to mop up the remains(ha).

  2. P 2: instead of saying “ok then. me too”, he should have said “yeah….that’s what your mom said to me last night”

  3. No taunting penalty? Personal foul? Unsportsmanlike conduct? Wow this is old school football Sam Huff would appreciate. Are the bullies from New Thayer the zebras? Am I referencing the correct school? Is Gil still upright and coherent after the rotgut spiked Gatorade self induced swirlie? As usual, more questions than answers,

  4. Agree. Chet’s predictability will soon put him on the Milford milk carton list of “Have you Seen Me?” with Wildcat, Uncle Gary, Booby Howry, Steve Wilcox, tat shop owner, etc
