This Week in Milford

Dammit, Pranit!

Filed under: basketball, Milford Idiots, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 7:06 pm

Hey! What the hell is going on here? Is this basketball practice? Is Pranit Smith actually on the basketball team? Maybe this is just phys ed in the gym? I don’t know. I agree with the guy in Panel 3, Pranit does seem to suck. That shouldn’t keep him of the varsity squad though. Gil has no plans for his team to ever make the playdowns again.

I assume we’ll eventually get some clarity on the basketball team. For now, we’ve still been taking a deep dive into Pranit Smith’s heavy involvement with an online fantasy football on a site that apparently everyone knows about, Sportsduke. Really? I’m sorry if this was already discussed, but Sportsduke is the best Rubin could come up with? I guess it’s an approximation of Draftking, but still, it makes me think of Sportspuke. Whatever you call it, it’s just tone deaf that it’s something that Pranit’s friend would casually reference and not get nothing but shrugs from the rest of the “team”. Okay, sports wagering was apparently a big deal or so says gap toothed kid in Panel 2. There was a notorious football pool that Pranit dominated until they shut him out. Obviously, that means he’s a ringer in Sportduke.

Unfortunately, the die has been cast. As long as Pranit is hanging around, I have a feeling Sportsduke is going to be front and center. Shrug.


  1. I have no idea whatsoever if Pranit is the guy making a steal in Panel 3. Spent 22 seconds on it, which is 20 seconds too many.

  3. I’m guessing that Pranit is not on the basketball team, based on the way they are talking today. He obviously isn’t in the gym with him or else they’d be saying, “you suck” instead of “he sucks”. Failing to follow the logic though. He is great at fantasy football, but he’s scrawny and not good at basketball. As if being good at fantasy football normally means you’d be an asset to the basketball team?

  4. Pranit is too good for ham n egger fantasy football league so he gets booted. But apparently he sucks at hoops so will get kicked off of basketball team. Hmm…something doesn’t jibe here.

  5. God damnit, conversations like this don’t happen when the ball is in play… Where the hell is Gilberto and his whistle??

  6. As usual, Hitorque is right. The first thing I thought was that I’ve never seen a bunch of guys at practice carrying on an extended discussion with the ball in play. Doesn’t happen. It’s rare even on the bench, unless it’s about the practice itself. We overlook unrealistic developments all the time, but this one is just too much.

  7. Point shaving scandal in the wings? I dunno, but I do know today’s post is waiting there! Be up directly.

  8. I’m like everybody else, nobody talks about Fantasy Football in an intense gym class pick-up basketball game. Somebody wasn’t doing their homework when doing research for basketball. Getting off on the wrong foot before basketball goes full bore or Chance goes Canadian on us, oh my.

    Ned, BTW, kudos to you for taking one for the team. You da man, as always.

  10. […] Do those Milford High lockers keep getting bigger or what? Pranit Rock could stuff big boy in one of them without skipping a beat – that is, if he wasn’t so scrawny. […]
