This Week in Milford

November 23, 2019

“And Now We Pause for Station Indentification. This Is the Milford Mudlark Radio Network.”


“I would never do something so unprofessional… Oh? Okay, so maybe I did something so unprofessional, but somebody had to think of the children!”  It’s all I can do to keep myself from making a political reference in today’s post. Chet’s denial of wrongdoing immediately followed with an admission of wrongdoing and an attempt to make it about something other than his own self-interest would serve him well in an executive branch position.

Speaking of the executive branch, looks like Marjie’s on the horn to LBJ who may or may not be giving her his pants order. Can’t be Chance Macy’s grandpa, can it? He had more pronounced male pattern baldness last time we saw him. But who else would be saying Chance would be “prepared” for whatever come next? And who’s this “us” Marjie’s referring to? Did she give Superintendent Whatshisname and Captain Man Bun a day to look into this? Just how is Chance getting “prepared”? Does it involve a whetstone?

Now let’s wrap this thing up before Christmas and move on to hoops. Milford’s lost two in the conference so playdowns are out of the picture; we’ve got enough time for a face-saving victory over Valley Tech as Chet Ballard slinks off the school board, out of his marriage, and under the desk at his office. Maybe we can revisit him a couple of years from now, after he’s sent to jail for insurance fraud. The way he sings, he’ll make a great canary.


  1. Chet almost sounds like a perv

  2. Teenchy,

    Twilight Zone Revisited

    “…and you play real good, Charlie. You might have fumbled a couple of games away but you didn’t work on the chain gang like Chance.”

    “Your running skills are real good, Charlie. I wouldn’t be surprised if Clemson or Alabama call anyday. You ought to get a full ride.”

    “Your talents are real good, Charlie. And your dad is a model booster. They need more people like him to cheer on the team.”

    “I beg to differ. Charlie, you need more development and Chet, I don’t know which is worse, your insurance or your kids sports ethics.”

    Today’s headline in the Milford Enquirer

    “Dr. Pearl Turned Into Corn Stalk On A Farm Near Oakwood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    sub headline

    “Sources trace incident to party the Ballards threw last Thursday.”

  3. Chet crumbled from the lightest scrutiny from a Tank Town sports writer. He went from never to well it was for the safety of the children. Yes Joe Pesci, he may fold under questioning.

  4. Chet crumbled like a dry dog turd too when HVB challenged him with something that rightfully could have squashed too

  5. […] “Charlie, how does it feel knowing you’re gonna get more touches without your stepfather’s involvement?” […]
