This Week in Milford

May 12, 2021

Duck! No, Pizza!

Sorry for the late and brief post: my laptop crashed and I lost my draft. At least Zane didn’t take the L thanks to his teammates’ bats, but thanks to Morton Levi he didn’t take the W either. (No idea who this Levi kid is, but Levi Morton was a Republican congressman from New York and Vice President of the United States under Benjamin Harrison. Here he’s a kid who came close to taking a comebacker to the head.) Those runners were inherited from Zane so a no-decision for him and a blown save for Morton.

Cut to the bleachers where once again we have a Milford team that’s been practicing in their game unis unless, like the boys, they just got done playing multiple games off-panel. Katy Brito unnecessarily points to herself and to – who? what? where? the general direction of Ricozzi’s? – while inviting her teammates to go get pizza with Zane and her. The two girls at far right look a bit taken aback by the proposition. They know The Bucket is the traditional post-game hangout and besides, they don’t want to watch Katy and Zane in another PDA. Corina on the other hand cocks an eyebrow in interest; she’s all about free eats and she must know about Zane’s backstory so she must figure this one’s on Katy. Wait ’til Abel finds out Katy’s been picking up the tab for not one but two freeloaders! That Milford Library Board job doesn’t pay, dontchaknow.


  1. The batter in panel one swings his bat like a cricketer. He must have gotten some good wood on the ball though.

  2. And that ball looks like a tennis ball. Maybe PP will get an earful from K n’ Z about bore-eato and have some entertaining input

  3. That’s a strange dugout scene in P2. Are they laughing at Gil who’s giving himself a Gatorade spiked swirlie or is someone getting the hot foot? Either way, good clean fun dugout tomfoolery!

  4. P 3: PP thinks that question is so stupid, that she looks like she’s gonna’ dump that water from her water bottle on Kate’s head in about three seconds.

  5. Zane is massively overscheduled & terribly poor. Time for Ricozzi’s! (Which has been a no fly zone since 2013).

  6. I played two years of high school baseball, and I can say with all certainty that no softball girlies ever came out while in uniform to watch us play, no did we ever show out to watch them, much less while wearing our game jerseys…

    I’m an academic advisor for a mid-size state university. My parking spot is right between the baseball and softball diamonds, and I can say in total certainty that players from neither team has watched the other play. (Yes, on a nice day I like to sneak out for 10-15 minutes to watch an inning or two…

    Not only that, but I have advised dozens of softball players over the years. Because I’m a baseball guy I always chat them up when they’d come to my office and believe me when I tell you that a good 80% of them do not follow MLB and wouldn’t watch a baseball game even if there was a gun to their heads. If you really want to laugh, we even have AAA minor league not even one walking mile from campus…

  13. And nice haircut Katy. You look like fuckin Moe from the 3 Stooges

  14. Nice one, Jive Turkey.

    What’s with this Ricozzi’s shit? Gil has a lucrative deal with The Bucket, and kids just going to other restaurants all willy nilly is not going to go over well.

  15. […] Aceves, Dallas George and Curtis Charles return from last season. So, for that matter, do Morton Levi (who was a relief pitcher last season), Eldrick Boston, the aforementioned Wilson Henry and […]
