This Week in Milford

Call It Milford Blue

More Oakwood action!

Tevin Claxton’s throwing motion looks a little odd. The Milford helmet behind him is also odd. It turned Oakwood Blue. I guess someone defected because they didn’t like sloppy joes and cleaning up after massive bonfires (of inanity).

As Gil predicted, it’s turning into the Chance Macy Show. He’s got a receiving touchdown and is breaking loose for a long punt return. It’s probably a score, but we’ll find out more tomorrow.

This blistering pace is wearing me out. I think I’ll go back to bed.


  1. Yep, Chance is gonna’ be a stud all season and then tell Gil later that he’s not sure about college ball, giving Gil all the reason he needs to meddle in the kid’s life. Hey! Didn’t Rubin just do that story not too long ago?

  2. Quite a crowd behind Tevin as he throws.
    I like the guy with the high helmet who looks like a silver age Marvel support villain. Not sure that adding an extra 10-15cm of height inside helmets is really a bad idea.

  3. C’mon Whigham, your job is drawing an American sports comic strip. Cut it out with the 360 degree stripe Canadian footballs. Commercial artists putting together grocery store circulars prior to the Super Bowl have an excuse to not know any better. You don’t.

  5. Ned, You know I can’t resist. From Steely Dan’s classic “Aja”

    “…they got a name for the winners in the world
    And I want a name when I lose
    They call Alabama
    The Crimson Tide
    Call me Oakwood Bluuuueeeee…”
