This Week in Milford

Plus I save 13K a year…

Nothing like a good old fashioned house party to close out the basketball season. In fact its not a bad idea for any team to do this. When I coached youth baseball we had a  party at my assistants house shortly after we won the league title in ’98. Of course it was more like a victory party too but the thought was – lets get together one last time before we head our separate ways for the summer. I had some time to chat with parents I had mostly only spoken to on the phone all season, and it was a nice way to end the season.

And hey, one more chance to see Divot Head before he re-applies for kindergarten.

We find out that Chris was going to .. Tufts before he changed his mind and opted for Wisconsin.  And since Alexa is gonna be a Hoosier, (guess she couldnt get a basketball scholarship with her low scoring totals) its only fitting that this plot ends with them still being rivals.

I suppose for a student of Chris’ stature, Tufts would be  suitable for him. Not quite Ivy league, but still very small and private, its cost after aid is $33,000 a year, compared to Wisconsin “only’ costing $20,000.  Maybe he figured he not only will be more on the map if he plays sports, he’ll have more dough in case he doesnt get drafted by the pros.

And thats the smartest audible we’ve seen since Gil introduced the veer.


He walked into Milford getting A’s and B’s

Aint no doubt about it was Gil he aimed to please.

He battled Alexa long before he said

Goodbye to his old friend Divot Head.












  1. Ol’ Badgerville will be more like 40,000 for a presumed out of stater. Which is pretty friggin pricey for taking on line classes like they are now.

  2. They will probably bring Alexa back in a few years in some asinine little role like they did with Hadley v baxendale and her dumb bf

  3. I once knew a woman who was an Indiana alumna. She told me that women who attended IU referred to themselves as Hoosierinas.

    Holding off on today’s post for a couple of hours; one to allow for additional comments here, two because today’s strip is so lame words are failing me.

  4. Since Tufts pays no real estate tax, they get shamed into giving Somerville & Medford a few scraps. One is a free ride to at least one SHS grad each year. They also host events in their fieldhouse, and have fairly good live theater,.

  5. Ah, the exciting plot twist that has been setting up all season… except it was never once mentioned before. Good stuff. Speaking of actual good stuff, I’m always down for The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

  6. My son went to IU. Great school and good times when we would visit Bloomington

  7. Yes, timbuys, the exciting plot twist which has been setting up all season but has just been mentioned now… I am no spoiler, but the Saturday strip is amazing in that regard.

  8. Yeah, nothing like inserting a couple of schools to wake up the Big Ten audience that was snoozing through this somnolent plot along with everybody else. In the baseball plot, a couple of representatives will be on hand from the SEC to scout a pitcher or 2. And don’t forget the ACC and PAC-12 will have dinner at the Milford Lounge with Mimi for any prospects. Booze and linguini and conversation over someone’s ability to bunt an underhanded fast pitch, attaway to spice things up, Thorpiverse.

  10. Seriously? #1 and #2 in their classes and they aren’t even going to attend one of the the so-called “public ivy league” universities? They couldn’t even attend the conference’s official nerd schools (i.e., Purdue and Northwestern, or to a lesser extent, Maryland)

    Oh, and they stopped calling it the “Big 10” ages ago — It’s the “B1G”
