This Week in Milford

#truerthantrue

When it comes to convos, does depressing beat boring? Tevin’s fixing to find out! He might’ve found Kianna depressing, but Chance Macy has already put the kid sitting next to him asleep before Tevin even showed up.

Let’s not mince words, gentle readers: as Milford sports stars come, Chance Macy has been a pretty boring one. Except for getting situationally mad and going off on a Tilden cheap-shot artist, he’s been completely low-key. The whole Charlie Roh/Chet Ballard thing barely fazed him, and nothing else has since.

Maybe that’s by design. Have we seen someone so explicitly anti-their own postsecondary educational and athletic futures since Golden Boy True Standish’s #gottabetrue campaign attempted to set the college recruiting machine on its ear? Why yes, I think we have. Just like Little Miss Fire Hydrant this past spring, Chance will have his future decided for him by his parent/guardian and a coach named Thorp.

I can only imagine Rubin keeps feeding us these aw-shucks types ’cause he imagines his GRIT-reading base eats ’em up like flapjacks, but for once I’d like to see a college prospect in the Thorpiverse whose approach falls somewhere between this faux humility and the Jaquan Case hype machine.

  1. For as much as kids these days bitch and moan about the cost of college tuition and student loans and all that shit (and seeing in my daily job how many college students in good academic standing have to sit out a semester or two because of lacking funds),, I’d have thought highly gifted Mudlark athletes surviving on limited family income like Chance the Gardener and Corina Karinininininina would have jumped at the opportunity for a free ride, but that’s just me.

  2. Looks to me like Chance is giving us that side eyeroll look, as if he thinks this is all pretty stupid too.
