This Week in Milford

How Long Is A Quarterback Summit?

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, freak hands, huge earrings — nedryerson @ 4:21 am

We’re all bored with this.

Maybe the Milford Police Dept. has a sniper on a roof across the street and is waiting to get a clear shot to end this standoff. Maybe Gil will randomly wander in and assume responsibility for his team and put an end to this stupid Team Thayer/Team Rapson nonsense. Hahahaha!

  1. How is no answers bright? Damn this broad is dumb. Undercutting? Just win football games!

  2. Doesn’t the fact they have no answers imply that they realize their rivalry is hurting the team? And isn’t she forcing them to confront what should have been clear to them all along? As Corinarenna’s only defender in this quadrant of the galaxy, I have to suggest that despite the laughably improbably plot, she is the only one of the three with a brain.

  3. They’ve won football games. Just because there is a little strife doesn’t mean they’d be undefeated if everything was hunky dory. I don’t know anyone who is satisfied sitting on the bench. If they are they’re lying or puds. From what I’ve seen in still photos Rapp is the better QB. Ive seen guys like Thayer . Suck ass losers. They get no respect from teammates who have a clue. What’s her name is probably a shitty teammate but we haven’t seen any evidence.

  4. “…maybe Gil will wander in and put an end to this nonsense…” haha…good one! CK has already proven within a few minutes that Gil don’t know his ass from a hole in the ground. Rubin is senile

  5. It is amazing how Gil continues to find such unlikely people to do his job for him.

  6. For someone who claims to not GAF about what the football team does, she sure is putting a lot of effort to fix something for some people that she “kinda cares about”…this is dumb af

  7. Corinna doesn’t care about football, but getting these clowns to leave her alone has to be worth 15 minutes of abusing them. (Which she is enjoying, anyhow)

  8. 1. Everything I said about this fiasco during the past week is still valid, so I won’t bother repeating it all again… And this storyline started with such promise, too… Damn you, Rubin.

    2. This is looking more an more like a homage of Lucy Van Pelt’s “Psychiatric Advice” to Charlie Brown wherein she constantly tells him to be confident and find some courage within while at the same time calling him a wishy-washy blockhead coward loser…

    2a. It’s funny because Peppermint Patty is too ignorant to have any historical concept of all the famous championship teams across all sports who had internal rivalries and fights and teammates who couldn’t stand each other. I mean for fuck’s sake — Even Gilberto’s teams deal with this shit one way or another literally EVERY season!

    3. It’s weird because you’d think the Nickelodeon/ABC Afterschool Special moral to this storyline (i.e., “teamwork is good so just end the petty squabbles already”) is such an uncontested layup no-brainer that it would be accepted as a universal given even a five-year-old could understand… The problem is Peppermint Patty is so craptastic at getting this basic message across because she’s hellbent on wedging in as many condescending insults and eye-rolling one-liners and snarky smugness as she can, and her interpersonal skills of communication are utter dogshit and she has a lifelong penchant for shooting her mouth off before ever thinking how she comes across to others. You can tell she’s practically orgasmic at the thought of a “captive audience” being forced to sit through her Gilbertonian high-handed hypocrisy lecture because it’s not like she has actual FRIENDS to talk to and even her teammates have tuned her ass out.

    3a. So to recap, in this past week Patty has made unfounded accusations, she has leapt to conclusions, she has made authoritative statements about a situation that she didn’t have all the information on and wasn’t even her business to begin with, she has mocked their gullibility for being the first teenage boys in recorded history to be lured by the prospect of sex from a girl they both coveted, she has been condescending beyond reason and she can’t spew a single dialogue bubble without constantly reminding these two how stupid they are… How exactly does she expect her message to get through?

  9. @vaganova:

    1. I’ve seen zero evidence that this strife is “hurting the team” since even if everything was hunky-dory they’d still have the same won/loss record.

    2. For the hundredth time, it’s the job of Gilberto or Kazuo or the team captains to straighten this out, not some volleyball player who only knows half the story. Nevermind the fact that she doesn’t even *know* these two mooks aside from some casual 30-second hallway chats between classes.

    3. Even if her intentions were in the right place, talking down to them and scolding them like toddlers is NOT the way to mediate a dispute. Whatever happened to “you tell me your side and now you tell me your side?”

    4. Because of their romantic intentions, Patty was already compromised even before she appointed herself arbiter.

    5. And it’s clear that Patty’s intentions are NOT in the right place because it’s evident she’s getting off on dishing a never-ending wave of insults and humiliation and making these dudes cower in submission… There’s a word for this but I’m not going to say it.

    6. And I don’t care what her intentions were, using the lure of implied sex to bring these two idiots to her house when there’s no way in hell they would have shown up in any other circumstance is manipulative and borderline sociopathic. Because I promise you she wouldn’t have had the stones to bark at them like a drill sergeant in school or at that burger joint with other people watching… Nevermind the fact that if she has to be this underhanded just to talk to them alone, maybe, just MAYBE she isn’t the best candidate after all to jump into this fray as some “voice of reason” or whatever…

  10. @hhitorque: good to have a personal response! As to your points,

    1 and 2– agreed.

    3 we can argue about. Since boys, historically, have often used ridicule and abuse to control girls, I think she’s entitled to try it out herself.

    4 I’m not sure I understand the point here. Again, we can discuss it.

    5 I don’t understand her motives either, but we’re depending on Rubin’s writing, and doing so is dangerous in itself. I’d rather suspend judgment for now than apply my own suppositions.

    6 Her luring tactic is definitely manipulative but probably not sociopathic unless it is aimed at some gain for herself, which does not appear to be the case. And I never thought she was the best choice for the voice of reason (that should be Gil– or just because we need a laugh right now– Maureen.) I’m just pleased to see “the new girl” attack a problem, even if there are mountains of details we don’t know because Rubin has either not revealed them or hasn’t thought them out himself.

    Again, I’m glad hitorque has called me out, as it has given me a chance to “explain my answer.” It is entirely possible I am completely mistaken, as I am right now distracted by trying find my way through a challenging situation unrelated to Mfnrd. To hitorque and all our other cyberbuddies, do please keep callin ’em as you see ’em.

  11. Hitorque and Vaganova, I always look forward to what you both have to say. I learn something.

    P2-“Okay, Miss Grundy, I’ll quarterback the team this week and Jughead can have it next week. We hope The Bee isn’t too upset.”

    Comment by tdrewhardin — November 30, 2020 @ 5:59 pm

  12. If she just wanted to prank/troll/humiliate them for the sake of doing it or because they both had it coming, fine and more power to her… But using this situation to deliver some sanctimonious snarky sermon on growing the hell up muddies the waters… A lot.

    Because it seems like she’s really trying to do both and in that case, she can’t reasonably expect these two pinheads to take her seriously… It’s like some single antisocial co-worker you only know casually lecturing you about your marriage and how you’re parenting your kids

    Comment by Hitorque — November 30, 2020 @ 7:58 pm

  13. I don’t think any of us are happy with this story line. Hitorque is definitely right that Corinarenna is a meddler, though he did not use that exact word. I’ve probably been overlooking that because unlike anyone else, I like her overall style. But to echo others, where the hell is Gil?
