This Week in Milford

Anywhere’s Better Than Delware

Well this is a bit of a cluster, innit?

Besides the obvious spelling and naming errors in P3, we also have a Milford player colored as a Goshen player at the bottom of the pile. Don’t think so? Look at the dark numbers on his back. Faithful TWIMer hitorque noted yesterday that no teams in the Thorpiverse ever wear white uniforms. I think that when Whigham draws these strips in black & white, he intends the teams with dark numbers on their jerseys to be in white. There have been a few color-on-color games in college and pro football in the recent past (the WLOCP comes to mind along with those NFL “Color Rush” games) but, with a few exceptions for the red/green colorblind, most provide enough contrast to tell the teams apart.

Good thing that Delware T-Wing is clicking. Odds are it’d click even better if Milford had more than ten men on the field.

Then they might not only be in sync but also able to move in one direction.

Post title from the occasional live lyrics to this song. Couldn’t find a clip meeting those criteria so here’s the original.


  1. Yeah, I know that of a lot of us smart asses that visit this site regularly are probably older than the average bear, but I think Rub & Whig are a lot older based on the mistakes that we see here on a regular basis such as 10 men on the field, different color schemes from day to day, opponents that only wear UNC colors, players that are as long as 15 yards, Canadian footballs, etc. is an obvious sign of aging. And in P 2….what if everyone isn’t in sync? then what Tevin? Better be sure of that unless you want to hear more whinin’ from ass-hat Spiller.

  2. There’s a play called Waggle Left Throwback in the Wing-T. I really hope they run it, both for the name and for the nearly inevitable collision between crossing Chance and backing Tevin.

  3. 1. Holy damn, that kid must be Patrick Mahomes after all, playing straight up heroball and all that shit (and making Gilberto look like an offensive genius in the process)… But I promise you that surly volleyball girlie’s legs are still going to remain welded shut. Maybe Tevin needs to track down Contessa Milton or Kay Brito because they might be DTF instead…

    1a. I give less than a rat’s ass… I still want Rubin to tell me why Captain Heroball gets to script his own plays when Gilberto didn’t let any of his THREE(!) SENIOR QBs call plays last season… Hell, maybe if he let Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum call their own plays last year they would have maybe won more games??

    2. **AHEM** I’ll field that question about the 10 men on the field. You see, Gilberto Tharpe has been very adamant in the past about not showing off the full capability of his famed ‘Delaware Turkey Wing’, and if he reveals all his cards now by playing 11 men on offense against Goshen, the remaining teams on the schedule might find a weakness and exploit it like those rebels did against the old Death Star #1….

  4. 3. As an aside, how many years has it been since we’ve seen a kickoff or punt return for a TD? Yeah they’re practically extinct in the NFL but they happen all the time in high school… I know because I see it on the local news.

  5. 4. And too bad about Tru Standish’s epic choke job out of the bullpen last night with the Rays facing elimination against Boston… Guess he’ll be starting next season in AAA Durham??

  6. That’s not a miscolored Milford player on the bottom of the pile. That’s a player from a 3rd team! This is the future of football.

  7. I’d like someone to explain how Tevin calling two running plays where he kept the ball “opened up the offense”. Since this offense is almost all running already, that’s what they’ve been doing all game unsuccessfully. Now that he kept the ball for two first downs, it opened up the……running game? Huh???

  8. While Gil is sloshed and doing his best R Kelly impression in the student section, Kaz is scratching his head on what to do. Tevin is drawing up plays in the dirt. And I guess Heather is tweeting what a genius Gil is. C’mon Marty! Show some balls and call out Gil !

  9. Yeah, Mopman, as U2 sang, Tevin is running to stand still. Could also be said about this plot. Naturally, Gil has his thumb up his hair somewhere while Tevin is engineering Zeno’s Paradox.
