This Week in Milford

The View from Mount Gilmore

Looking across Gil’s massive schnozz is giving me a huge North by Northwest vibe.

So are the angles of the prairie style window behind his head in P3.

Nothing like starting your day with a Saul Bass title sequence, is there?

Now, about Zane Clark. There are many, but which one is within Rubin’s circle of friends? Can we expect him to comment here this spring? How can we start piecing together his backstory? Will it be as big a red herring as Doug Guthrie’s just was?

Oh, all right. Let’s take a stab. He’s a senior, so most likely this is a one-and-done arc for him. His home life has apparently kept him from coming out for baseball until now, or maybe he came out for baseball before and his home life prevented him from coming out for baseball again until now. Maybe someone in the home had a substance abuse problem, like Aaaaron Aaaagard’s mom. Maybe there was an unplanned addition to the family, like Jaxxxxon Kiser. Or maybe someone got blowtop mad, like Chance Macy. In any event, prepare to be underwhelmed.


  1. Jaxon Kiser…haha….I found a vid of him from 5th grade, that goofball….

  2. Does Zane Clark live in those dumpy apartments on Poplar?

  3. …and Zaney Zane has also heard that Gil lets kids come and go as they please for other stuff, like soap-box derby racing for example, so he figures that he can just make shit up when he doesn’t feel like goin’ to practice or freezin’ his balls off in the dugout during an early season game

  4. Rubin has a little Jimmy 2 Times in him. “I know I’m late but can I play ball?”
    “Sure you mumbling’ stuttering prick, ya! Go get your fucking glove and play catch with yerself out in right field! Then when the fucking candy Ass track squad comes by, follow their dumb asses and run about 10 fucking miles! Ya got that?!”

  6. Teenchy, I just saw your notice as I’ve been on the road all day for my dad. If you need coverage, if nobody else has laid claim, I will. Just let me know one way or the other but sure, I am more than glad to cover for you if needed.

  9. teenchy or robmize, if you can, could you clue me in on Saturday? If you could let me know, I’d appreciate it. I’m fine either way. I have tried to get a hold of you but I couldn’t get to your email. Hey, as long as TWIM goes forward, I’m good. Thanks, Guys.

  10. @tdrewhardin: I’m not going to be able to post on Saturday. I’m more than happy to pick up tomorrow’s post for Rob if he’d like to slide over to Saturday, or your Tuesday or Thursday post next week. Thanks – t

  11. Teenchy, that’s cool. I just haven’t been able to get a hold of Robmize to see if he’ll do Saturday. If he doesn’t, I will but I’d rather check with Rob first. I’m fine either way, My Man. Hope you have a great time on Saturday, Big Guy.

  12. “Zane Clark” (it could have been worse– he could have been Grane Zey) has to be one of the most over the top names since “Dell Brand,” the outlaw biker who tied Mfnrd in knots in 1966.
