This Week in Milford

December 22, 2021

Low Budget? Wanna Bet?

Who orders tea at the Coffee Cantina? Pranit Smith, that’s who.

Full Pantheon of Hair trifecta today with Tevin’s (that’s still Tevin, innit?) Esquerita ‘do, Pranit rocking the Bobby Bittman and Trevor Lawrence-looking guy looking all Trevor Lawrence-y. Pranit’s rationale for going with the cheap option makes sense…

…but opens the door to speculation. Trevor’s Spidey-sense must be tingling.

Money’s tight for the Smiths, but Pranit is good at assembling and managing a fantasy football team. If he can raise the stakes while maintaining his level of success, maybe he can help augment the Smith family income. Maybe he’ll try to push his luck into other forms of sports gambling. But where will he find the funds to take that plunge?

This is where the Central City Mob steps in. Next thing you know, he’ll get involved in a point-shaving scandal, tanking shots to help make Milford lose or to keep Milford wins close. Nah, that would assume people bet on Valley hoops, which assumes that people are interested in Valley hoops. More than likely he’ll get in deeper in a fantasy football league, where his luck will run out. His contribution to the Mudlarks’ downfall will come via a kneecapping which will come after he can’t pony up his gambling debts.


  1. Yeah, one can only hope that Pranit gets a good ‘ole fashioned Moose & Rocco Chicago outfit-style reminder to make timely payment to the gambling powers that be. And wtf is he drinking out of?..the piss cup that Kaz told him to fill for the mandatory drug screen test?

  2. Is that one of those official, tiny authentic Chinese tea cups made out of china? No way the Coffee Cantina uses those.

    I’m still trying to understand this. They made it sound like Pranit was a big shooter with this fantasy league thing, but now it appears there is no money involved. Is he broke because of his hobby somehow, or just that’s how his family is? Stay tuned, I’m sure this will be answered within the next 9 weeks. Unless it isn’t.

  3. Rubin spell check snafu again. It supposed to say “one of those candy ass coffees with and Olde English 800.”
    I’d be getting tired of that scrawny label. Tevin should know better than to tease. He needs to be HIP-NO-TIIIIIIZZZZED !!!

  4. For the last time: Unless you’re in a big money league with some real high rollers, nobody gives a shit about your betting pool, fantasy team or NCAA Road to the Final Four bracket…

  5. Fantasy leagues are something like the derivatives markets in investment circles. Money chasing essentially nothing. Don’t put me in charge or I’ll ban ’em all.

  6. Excellent choice for the video and the timing couldn’t be better, given the story so far. The Kinks truly epitomize Classic Rock and this song certainly aids and abets in the cause.

    What is this with these celebrity lookalikes? Harold Ramis and Tom Petty(but liked Trevor Lawrence) putting in their time to help exacerbate the plot might turn a few heads but a piece of poop in the bucket is still a piece of poop, no matter who shows up.
