This Week in Milford

Highlanders: There Can Be Only None

Filed under: actual action, big arms, Brown Hair, Highlight reel, Neal's friends, softball — teenchy @ 7:48 am

That rarest of strips today, nothing but solid sports action, but here’s a twist: Milford’s opponent represents a school that no longer exists.

Finney High School in Detroit closed in 2009 and was merged with Crockett High School to create the East English Village Preparatory Academy. EEVPA calls its teams the Bulldogs, but at least the colorists got close here. Finney’s namesake was a prominent Detroiter who played a significant role in the Underground Railroad. So consider this a nostalgic shout-out for Rubin’s readers in the Detroit Free Press.

With bags full of Highlanders and the potential tying run at the plate, Landry Carlson gets out of the jam thanks to a diving stop by Katy Brito. Postgame, Landry will go back to, uh, Montana? and Katy will be off to The Bucket the Milford Public Library for coffee and snogs with Zane, that is if daddy dearest hasn’t immediately joined the Library Board and padlocked the place.

  1. Yes!…..It is nice to see a full set of panels that’s all sports for a change instead of stupid shit like PP making another one of her endless asinine comments or porn-stache’ boy, Bore-eato, whining like a little bitch about the library…..stick to sports, Rubin

  2. I don’t think that’s how you catch a tattooed line drive. Seems like it should be a back handed catch. But I hope the tattoo says “Fuck You Gil!” rather than “Mother”.

  3. No, that’s a fairly accurate catch with your left hand diving to your left. Although I wouldn’t call that a dive, looks more like a stretch and then she’s going to fall down to make it look more dramatic.

  4. Damn, they need to make the girl in that first panel pee in a cup… She’s got more HGH in her system than blood, most likely…

  5. Mopman, you are correct sir about not being able to backhand with left hand in that situation. I saw that wrong. BUT, I still claim you can not catch a line drive with palm up as shown. That was my main gripe. She would need to have palm of glove facing the hitter, not the sky.
