This Week in Milford

March 3, 2021

We’re the Mudlarks, Not the Cougars

Good: Vic Doucette shifting away from providing advice on motorsports careers and back to what he does best: falling back on Bermanisms for Milford hoopsters since he’s run out of NBA PA guys to emulate. Glad he used Tessi’s nickname else we wouldn’t have known if this was a girls’ or boys’ game.

Not so good: some rando Mudlark mom giving Vic the bad touch* while grooming heaping praise on him. Timing couldn’t be much worse given the current headlines about [insert politician/women’s gymnastics coach/team doctor name here]. Doubt the Chief gave that much thought while he was drawing this, unlike the additional details he added to Mudlark mom’s blouse in closeup. I’m imagining an unseen P4 zooming in further to show the stitchwork in the blouse and the unplucked hair in her mustache.

Who are these people? Who is handsy Mudlark mom’s daughter? Tessi? Corina? Becca Ramirez? Or some as yet identified player named Robinson?

Retcon alert: Did we ever hear a rotating parent do PA work for Milford before? After Vic, will we ever hear another Mudlark PA announcer again?

*This was my tentative title for today’s post until I realized I used it about a year ago. Didn’t link to the video then, suppose I could do it now.


  1. Don’t think touchy-feely mom is PP’s mom. Back in the fall, they showed her playing go-fish on a Friday night as PP’s way of showin everyone that she had better things to do than watch Dumb-and-Dumber play football. As far as parents doin’ rotating PA work, they do that shit at grade schools like back when my kids played, however, maybe MHS is really a small-time HS, so they do it there too.

  2. And still yet ANOTHER plot? Someone pawing all over Vic and we’re sure where THAT is going to take us? Sheesh, we have enough worrying about Doug thinking he’s Napoleon in the front row at the Indy 500.

  3. 1. JESUS FUCKIN’ CHRIST, LADY! The kid already has a big enough head without your help… And does small-town high school Chickball played in front of *maybe* 150 spectators really warrant the whole NBA/Pro Wrestling announcer schtick?

    1a. Has anyone reminded Vic that people are buying tickets to see a basketball game and not his ass?

    2. I’m guessing this woman must be Latina because if she were Asian the tone of her skin would be just a shade below “loud neon yellow”…

    2a. Oh I forgot — This woman is probably trying to schmooze a coupon for free soda at the Bucket, isn’t she?

    3. So we’re just going to ignore that whole “Vic is doing this all for the 0.000000000003% chance that the hottest girl in school will give him a hand job” -setup?

  4. ….and if that was a student/player/former player’s dad doin’ that shit to a female student, his ass would be viral within seconds of this entire interaction with captions like #creepydad….#MilfordCreepyParent…#MHSMolester…etc

  6. The worst part is that Vic is neglecting his duties while the two of them flirt inappropriately. Note the crowd going wild, someone did something great for Milford and Vic missed it. He’s not earning his wiener.

  7. I wonder if this ever happened to the real Vic.

  9. No, the real Vic comments on the GoComics board, and he never did any announcing at high school games.

  10. Look at Tuesday’s strip. her daughter is #2. Haven’t seen her before and doubt we will again.

  11. @MopMan: The real Vic was commenting here early on in this arc. Think we might’ve scared him off.

  12. Here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson.

    “Is that a microphone in your pants, Vic, or are you just glad to see me?”
