This Week in Milford

Thirsty Week in Milford


Look out, Milford! Corina and Phoebe are off to do some crimes! Will they go get sushi and not pay?

Not at the Milford Diner, they won’t! They’re gonna get coked up first. Is all this talk of crime and confrontation getting Corina thirsty for more than just a Coke?

Perhaps this chivalrous gent in the Tampa Bay Rays cap can slake that thirst. Alert TWIMers (i.e., most TWIMers) have speculated said gent is unicorn in cleats True Standish. True left for Wake Forest in the fall of 2016 where he was slated to compete for a quarterback spot. He did wow some scouts during his brief stint as Mudlark bullpen ace, but was that enough to lead him down the path of a baseball career? Even if it was, True was shown not to be the kind of guy to call attention to himself by wearing gimme gear, even if it’s from his employer.

So there’s your Saturday cliffhanger, gentle readers. Comment away and don’t be like me  – stay safe, cool and hydrated.


  1. The worst hat that plays in the worst stadium. Nice choice True!

  2. a l’autre main, he could have been drafted by the Buccaneers. The trouble is that this would require an intersection of Mfnrd, whiich exists apart from the pandemic, with Tampa, which is in the middle of the worst epidemic in Florida history. This could, however, relieve Rubin of the problem of inventing a “backing up Brady” story in competition with the real one. I don’t know; I haven’t spent a lot of time in Mfnrd this spring and summer, and for all I know the guy we assume is True is actually an anonymous field worker from the American Tuberculosis Society.

  3. Funny, funny, Vaganova. Still got it, My Man.

    Teenchy, speaking of clones, aren’t you just thrilled that Single White Female meets a carbon copy of True Standish at Mel’s Diner? This one’s getting out of the gate on a high note, oh boy.

  4. I guess Rubin is bringin back old favorites every summer from now on since last summer it was HVB & JQC. If it really is True, hopefully he’s not there to become a pain in the ass like HVB did last summer.

  5. Since Jameis Winston & Tom Brady are the QBs least likely to be confused with Tru – Good Choice!

  6. Single White Female 2: Hedra Carlson Goes Out For The Milford Softball Team

    Phoebe Keener returns home late from her date with a literal computer date with Tru Standish. She gets the key and opens the door to her apartment at Milford Ansonia Luxury Suites

    “Oh, sorry, Hedy. I was at Mel’s Diner with a wonderful guy and I forgot to call.”
    “Well, next time, give me some notice!!!!!!!!!! I needed help with my bunting and you disappeared!!!!!!!!! And the Foot Locker Umpire’s number was unlisted!!!!!!!”
    “Did you try Ardis Conway?”
    THAT’S CARHEE, ROOMIE!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. God damnit… These had better be some Lex Luthor scale crimes for all this fuckin’ buildup

  8. Tru Standish was the number *THREE* rated high school QB nationally (or it may have been #5 but you get the idea), and could have attended any program in the country so at the bare minimum he should have All-ACC by senior year if not second or third team All-American

  9. These girls ain’t nothing but trouble. That boy better keep on a walking if he know what good for him.

  10. I think Standish came to Mifnrd as a “3 Star” QB & graduated as a “4star” There seem to be about 20 of those a year. There’s only 1 name from 2016 who has a chance of playing much this year, Jalen Hurts. the #1 prospect, Shea Patterson, just got released by KC

  11. Okay thanks for the correction, but to think that other programs like USC, Texas A+M, Ohio State (iirc) would ever be sniffing around a QB prospect who started his senior season as a *THREE* star beggars belief…

    I mean hell, during his official visit to College Station, Tru Standish was instantly recognized and mobbed by students as a potential savior of the program… They wouldn’t go those lengths for a freaking four-star player when the roster is already full of those…

  12. I think you are remembering when a couple of True’s buddies from a summer passing camp visited TCU during True’s silly rebellion against recruiting attention, Hitorque. Receiver Sedrick Joy and QB Rodney Curtis were on the TCU campus on an “anonymous” visit when a student recognized Joy and drew a crowd of students who then recognized Curtis (the #1 recruit in the nation). That made some sense that Joy was recognized, as he was from in Fort Worth. Curtis insisted they leave once he was recognized, as he came to visit Joy in Fort Worth not really to visit TCU, but to escape the attention of media and hounding relatives at his home in Florida. Rodney Curtis was basically a football Jaquan Case, a reluctant and spotlight-shunning superstar athlete.

    The most prominent school True was being recruited by was UCLA, where his dad wanted him to go. He was also tabbed as leaning toward going to an unspecified “Tech” at one point because he was seen talking to a “Tech” assistant coach at the passing camp, which is what really set his silly #gottobetrue thing into motion.

  13. […] Called it! Well, kinda sorta, except for the wearing one’s employer’s uniform in public part. […]
