This Week in Milford

November 18, 2020

I’m Just Saying, But Did Milford Cover the Spread?

All action – well, almost all action – today as Milford dominates Tilden. Tom “Don’t Call Me Butt” Muench is all over the field, stripping oversized footballs and causing Theismannesque leg injuries.* Chance Macy, perhaps the most realistically drawn player we’ve seen in some time**, racks up the yardage and probably scores some points. Quick cut to the sidelines where a lineman who appears to be part flounder makes an aside to a young Sylvester Stallone that maybe the Mudlarks should have run up the score.

The Chekhov’s guns left strewn about over the past few strips are leading us to a logical conclusion that the Valley title will boil down to point differential. Either out of a sense of sportsmanship or of continued punishment, Gil will keep Stallone Rappson on the bench when his free-wheeling style of play would be more likely to help Milford obtain those margins of victory necessary to win the Valley. Someone will have learned a lesson, though I’m not sure who will learn it or how valuable that lesson will be.

In any event, it’s more entertaining than watching Corinna be a bitch to everyone she meets.

*Thirty-five years ago today. What a coincidence.

**Sticking with the NFC East theme, whenever I see a running back wearing #31 and an OPO-DW style face mask my mind goes immediately to Wilbert Montgomery.


  1. I’m sure that I’ve mentioned this before but any strip without Corina is a good one. Hopefully, she’s a senior and not a junior, otherwise we will be seeing two more years of her bullshit rather than just through next June, as Rubin will probably make her dumpy ass a great basketball & softball player too

  2. Oh, so neither QB gives a shit about winning unless they can air it out and pad their stats?? Weak…

  3. So THAT’S how Hall & Oates made their start. And they based their song “Sara Smile” on Peppermint Potty.
    No. I can’t go for that, no can do.

  4. EDIT: Okay, that’s the BFF lummox OL that Rapson is talking to, not Macy

  5. Sorry for the late reply, I’m catching up on a backlog of posts — but “a lineman who appears to be part flounder” had me laughing out loud. Nice work!
