This Week in Milford

August 4, 2021

“I’d keep playing. I don’t think the heavy stuff’s going to come down for quite a while.”

It’s a day full of cliches at the MCC, but why blind pigs and acorns? Why not blind squirrels and nuts? Blind pigs and acorns make the best jamón ibérico de bellota, but with size of the bets Carter’s been making I think squirrel jerky Underwood Deviled Ham is more in line with his budget.

Meanwhile, something mysterious appears on the horizon. Funnel cloud? Vic Doucette’s grandpa van? Hendricks’ crappy shot to bluff Heather and Gil? Why not all of the above? Will this group call it quits before they get to see the true nature of the sandbag, or will they play through and tempt the wrath of higher powers?

meta: Wasn’t Local H a topic of discussion on a Rock ‘n Roll Thursday some time back? I’ve lost track of those ever since I switched from posting Thursdays to Wednesdays. In any event I just stumbled across Local H’s cover of TV On The Radio (a band I’ve really been into for the past year or so)’s “Wolf Like Me.” Sharing it here with the original to jog memories and invite comparisons.

  1. Yes Local H was a R&R Thursday and are a band I’ve seen literally over 100 times. I’ve heard Wolf Like Me many times live. That was a staple closer in the late 2,000s , I’m thinking. I bought TV on the Radio’s CD thanks to Local H. Did not enjoy the original as much.
    Is that Trevor Lawrence in P3? Shouldn’t he be in camp? I don’t know. Not following the NFL as much as I used to. Maybe he hasn’t signed yet.

  2. So why do I get the impression that Gil thinks Hendrix is shifty? Because some old geezer golf pro thinks so? In the real world, Gil would have told Jawor to fuck himself and not waste his time with such silly bullshit. Maybe there’s a storm comin to blow away the pro shop

  3. 1. That was the greatest golf scene from the greatest golf movie!!

    2. I don’t care. I still want to know when the hell Heather Mickelson had time to take up golf, get a handicap about even with Gilberto and Cart, and where she got all the money for her golf equipment… Or maybe Heather isn’t playing and that fake golf bag she’s lugging around houses Gilberto’s mini-bar and make-your-own burrito station?

    3. Cart, please stop overplaying your role with the “aw shucks gee willikers” act every time you his the ball straight… You ain’t Gomer Pyle… And since there’s no money on the line here, why is Cart showing glimpses of his A-game??

  4. WHY IS GIL DOING THIS? Just to prove Hendricks is a sandbagger? So. What. He’s not playing in tournaments, so what’s the difference? Is he going to prove he’s sandbagging and banish him from Milford or something? We can’t have anyone without the highest morals here in Mayberry!

  5. Haha….maybe Gil will bet Cart, beat him, and then, after Cart sez that he can’t or won’t pay, offer up the never-gets-old line of “yeah…I figured you’d say that…Hey Moose…Rocco….help Cart find his checkbook…”

  6. Great Caddyshack reference, Frank. LMAO. Poetic justice for Orange Jackass.

    And this golf-game-on-a-merry-go-round I get the feeling is an omen, bigger than the omen in P3, of things to come.
