This Week in Milford

So You’re Saying There’s A Chance?

Today we have a conversation between Corina and some of her volleyball teammates. I assumes these are her volleyball teammates. There hasn’t been much done to establish these bit players. There’s one named Becca, I think. But that’s entirely the point of this fall plot. CK is the object of fascination for our two rival QBs and then the volleyball team became a stupid bargaining chip in their game to crack through the CK barrier. So it’s no surprise that the two teammates are sulking about the state of Mudlark football.

Milford has two losses in the Valley Conference. But one of our disposable volleyball players is aware of a scenario for Milford to get the conference title. It’s probably one of those scenarios where two other teams have to tie or something. Now I remember that volleyball player’s name! It’s Becca Exposition!

So CK greets this information with an “Okay.” Is that a drawn out “ooookaay” as in and what am I supposed to do with this or is it really a spark of concern (undercut by the casual application of lipstick). My instincts say CK don’t give a toss because Friday nights are for Crazy Eights with mom.


  1. She means “ okay”, like “… what’s your point?…” in other words, she couldn’t GAF less about Rap, Thayer, Gil, or football

  2. Nothing like a cheap joke to get the blood flowing.

  3. A horse walks into a bar
    The bartender says, “Why the long f–” when suddenly the horse cuts him off.

    “I’ve heard that a million times. ‘Why the long face, haha!’ I hear that everywhere I go.”

    “Oh, I’m sorry to hear that,” says the bartender. “Other than that, how’s your life?”

    The horse responds with, “Stable.”

  4. Some students care about football and act gobsmacked that some don’t. Some students don’t care about football and act gobsmacked that some do.

    Just get back to the field or court…

  5. 1. Peppermint Patty needs to turn in her anti-authoritarian rebel anarchist punk rock badass juvenile delinquent card if she’s going to shoot off lameassed one-liners like that in a non-ironic context… Even senior citizens would be rolling their eyes at that one…

    2. We were so close, too… After five months, *JUST* when we thought Patty was going to give a shit about someone other than herself for the first time in recorded history, Rubin pulls the rug out…

    3. I’m actually impressed a couple of volleyball girls (who *aren’t* currently dating football players) knew off the top of their heads what the Mudlarks record was, plus the potential playoff implications… Back at my school, the only girls who might have known that would have been the cheerleaders…

    3a. But it’s still lame… It would have been MUCH better if the girls were gossiping about the schism and power struggle between our two QB heroes as they fight for the hearts and minds of their teammates, and Patty’s indirect role in the fracas.

  6. P 1.5, loud sarcastic laughter from Becca and the other girl: “…haha….holy shit!…you are SO fuckin’ funny…where do you come up with this stuff?…hoohoooooo…”

  7. So now she wears lipstick too? Why? She sure don’t seem to GAF about dating or looking pretty for boys or girls

  8. The Valley must be pretty damn mediocre this year if a two-loss team can win it.

  9. Look at it this way, Teenchy, they’d be currently in 1st place in the NFC East(ha), 3 games ahead of Philadelphia, who is 3-5. Gil would have no competition. He could beat up on the Cowboys and head to MCC Lounge in his spare time(ha ha).

    This Little Red Riding Hood Who Might As Well Be A Hood is wearing thin. Fast.
