This Week in Milford

Yeah I got questions

Well I had a better week then the Cubs as I visited Denver and the surrounding area this past week, enjoying all the mountain views and driving the winding roads that define Colorado. In a 7 week span I went to 5 states, and all 3 trips were enjoyable in their own way.

I’m glad the golf round is also over, as they spared us some nonsense about someone walking in and playing good golf, as theyve done in the past. In reviewing the weeks strips, I noticed some oddities:

  1. Carter drives up in a cart with his clubs on it, then walks 18 carrying his bag. I never saw that before. When you walk, you either have a pullcart or carry your bag. Where the fuck did he leave the cart??
  2. Carter starts with a red shirt on, then it changes to pink and Gil wears red. And the guy in red sure doesnt look like Gil on Wednesday.
  3. All 3 of them carry their bags, a bit unusual as almost every girl I ever saw walk took a pullcart. Just sayin..
  4. The rain comes and theyre prepared with raingear, not unusual, but then they STAND in the rain without so much as grabbing an umbrella? When we stop playing in a rain delay we’re either under a canopy or in our carts under a tree. These mopes do neither.
  5. Heather sees ominous rain clouds, Carter sees nothing. Hard to buy that one Cart. By the way, never heard of anyone nicknamed Cart.
  6. And after the round Gil is back in red while Cart conveniently dissappears. Why doesnt he stick around for postround drinks like normal people?
  7. Heather has a wallet? All girls I know have a purse, and never say they have a wallet.

And Gil gives a tease for Saturday as he’s gonna check something. Dont tell me Carter snuck some cash outa his wallet during the rain delay. Ha! Cart, you sneaky sob.


  1. Yes, is Cart a pick pocket too? Gil is gonna check Cart’s bag for a butter knife. (I’m not letting that go!). Rob, I’ve seen LADIES!!! (Thank you Jerry Lewis and Bill Burr) carry golf bags strapped to their backs. A new fangled type of golf bag you don’t carry on your shoulder. I may be attending Sox -Cubs tomorrow. But apparently someone is less tech savvy than me. A friend of a friend of my sister doesn’t know how to send tickets by email or text. I like printed tickets! What’s going on?!

  2. Minor nitpick – that was Gil who didn’t see the rainclouds, not Cart. As far as Cart and the cart, maybe Gil and Heather called him a pussy for not carrying his clubs so he was bullied into also walking the course. And one last color change, Gil goes from a red shirt to a purple shirt while Heather is in mid-sentence.

    As far as Gil checking something tomorrow, odds are he will be either searching online or calling BSU (he of course has a contact at every college in the US) to check if Cart played collegiate golf, thereby proving he’s a sandbagger who deserves to be shunned and run out of town.

    2. I still don’t get it… Why did Gilberto and Heather set up a game with Cart? What’s their hustle? And why didn’t Cart stay for the obligatory beer and hot wings? And why did Cart even agree to play them when there’s plenty of suckers in the clubhouse just begging to get their money taken? And are we even going to hear how Cart played or what his score was?

    3. I’m so very very disappointed that Cart didn’t make a pass at Heather or slap her in the ass since he seems just like that type. I dunno… What’s it called when a 22-year-old blonde football fanatic with an athletic body, cute face, and generally pleasant attitude has the exact opposite effect in attracting men than you’d expect? I dunno, can attractive eligible women fall into the trap of getting “friendzoned” by men? Is that a thing?

  4. Wait a minute. All he said was “ let’s make it interesting “, and was quickly rebuked, and dumb blonde Heather sez” let me check for my wallet”? Like hitorque sez, she only carries pizza coupons. Fuck you heather. How does that qualify him as a hustler? Rubin has once again turned something that could be good into something dumb..

  5. Can anyone think of a reason to insert that squall other than to show us Elrod Hendricks’s BSU rain jacket? Ball State? Boise State? Bloomsburg State? There’s a Binghamton University near me, which used to be known as SUNY Binghamton if not Binghamton State. But they got all fancy and moved to Div 1 and renamed the place. In doing so, they overlooked the obvious: this made the place “BU” on the sports page, and there was already a BU, Boston University, which had been in place since 1867. This led to puzzling headlines such as “BU TO PLAY BOSTON FOR TITLE.”

  7. […] Henry Carter or some such – who played for Boise Bridgewater Bemidji Ball State in his color-shifting rain […]
