This Week in Milford

January 4, 2021

Dressing Them Down Fires Them Up

Gil’s halftime talk fired up the Milford squad. They’ve come out blazing in the second half, led by #34 who hustles to knock the ball away from a Rogers Ram. Is #34 Marcell Irby? Vic Doucette announced the name in a panel where #34 was standing there staring at him. But then #45 (or #49 maybe) is slamming the ball in the hoop when Vic Doucette catches the spark (because it’s contagious) and puts some flair into his announcing. Is the slamming guy Marcell Irby or am I being to literal in reading the panels. I sure hope the Vic has been given some better roster information than we have or his sparked up announcing is gonna get embarrassing in a hurry. He knows trivia about the eighties NBA, so he should be good, right?

Ultimately, there’s never enough “actual action” for us to ever really be certain who is who, so my beef is just grist for the mill. Knock yourself out, Vic! We’ll never be able to fact check you.


  1. Gil is a coaching genius!

  2. I think we’ve already been shown that 45 is Marcel Irby, so we can focus on the real mystery : How is Vic calling the game without his eyes?

  3. Vic already channeling his inner Dave Zinkoff. #34 has lost weight, gained and lost a t-shirt and gotten a haircut since opening warmups. At least someone on the Mudlarks was hustling before now.

  4. Vic calls the game by sense of smell, Downpuppy…

    I’m happy to see some basketball, finally.

  6. There is no #49. The highest number in basketball is 5 – so the ref can signal fouls with his fingers.Its 45.

  7. Great one, Frank. It makes me reluctant to contribute my own(ha).

    P3-“…and I love ya, Gal, and I want you, Peggy Sue…”

  8. Just what we need. A high schooler who thinks he’s Michael Buffer.

  9. Oh no, that’s no Michael Buffer. It is indeed Dave Zinkoff. Vic earns the shedding of the Benetti tag. You da man!
