This Week in Milford

It’s Hard Out There For A Thorp

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Marjie Ducey, Mimi Thorp, Volleyball — nedryerson @ 5:33 am

It’s tough to be a Coach Thorp. First we have Mimi trying to facilitate a welcoming atmosphere in volleyball practice without doing any of the heavy lifting. She thought she could count on Becca and Susan to drive the welcome wagon, but they seem to be goofballs. Mimi realizes that she might actually have to talk to Corina if she wants to make sure that Corina feels welcome on the team. Oh, poor Mimi. Sorry you might have to interact with a student.

Then we have Gil dealing with the incessant Milford media, even the one (or only) media representative who isn’t Marty Moon. Marjie wants to know who will start at QB. Gil is evasive, either because he already had to answer one question last week and he’s still recovering from the strain, or because he hasn’t actually figured out how to answer Marjie’s question.


  1. Yeah. Corina is about as funny as a toothache and Mimi knows it. The look on her face sez it all….”…. fuck!….my plan didn’t work….dumb and dumber over here are more useless than I thought…”

  2. Corina would be more interesting if there were something to make the reader think she’s actually capable of seriously bad behavior – or just bad behavior – or just – well, something. All we have so far is her running her mouth about how dangerous she is. She comes across as someone who’s read too many Harley Quinn comic books.

  3. Can this girl be anymore annoying?
    Does Gil’s comment mean they are both stiffs and it’s irrelevant who actually plays?

  4. “Off the record, we hope it doesn’t matter” is one of the more puzzling observations I’ve seen Gil make. Maybe he’s entertaining another retro formation with a direct snap, but nearly all of them require a quarterback. Perhaps Marjie, that delicate but tenacious bulldog of reporting, will press for an explanation, but Gil looks like he’s putting on his jacket on the way out…

  5. Is Mimi even coaching the volleyball team? Has that been established?

  6. And based on P2, why not? What’s Mimi going to do, try to make a difference in Corina’s life when the inmates are running the prison? Yeah, Mimi roll your eyes and go back to Another World on the tv set in the faculty lounge.

  7. What’s Gil doin in P3? Did he just get done havin a little quickie with Margie? Makes sense the way he sez hope it don’t matter because it really don’t matter to him

  8. Marji and Moon are asking the wrong person. Ask Kaz or maybe some behind the scenes OC we’ve never met.
