This Week in Milford

Can You Fist Bump in Braille?

The grand scheme is in full swing, and with only three players in on it (oh, and a tennis player but who’s counting? Is she even gonna get a story this spring?) it seems to be working. The big question: how long before someone picks up on it, who will that someone be, and how will they know?

Probably not Marty; he’s too busy with his own chatter. Did he get a new set of choppers after basketball season, or has he been sucking on the sugar cubes he’s been muddling with bitters to make his sippy cup Old Fashioneds?

How about Noah Syndergaard Kaz? Gregg’s awkward return of his fist bump might be a clue. Oh wait; it’s his right-angled approach that’s making it awkward.

Maybe another Mudlark who isn’t in on the plan will figure it out, especially if one of them calls Hamm by name while out in the field. Guess it’s a given he can distinguish Scooter’s voice from his other teammates in the heat of the moment.

You know it won’t be Gil; he’s always the last to know and the pissiest when he finds out.

Nice graffiti by the Chief on the dugout there, BTW.



  1. Is that Kaz? Looks more like a happy-go-lucky flirty schoolgirl. I’ll make a fearless prediction. Scooter gets hurt or benched when Gregg is pitching, leading to Gregg throwing the wrong pitch constantly. Then, finally, Kaz or Gil or whoever shows up to coach is all, wtf is going on with you?

  2. I wanna know how Heather, who notices the most inane details about all kinds of other bullshit, hasn’t noticed that Mr Magoo is in the starting rotation. That’s the only thing keeping “coach” from finding out

  3. Teenchy, to repeat an analogy, Marty Moon lately has become like Buster Keaton in the movie “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum”. A lot of running around but really not a part of the plot. Maybe the snake will return with fangs. Maybe.

  4. […] also assumes Gregg himself has said nothing to his parents about Gil’s – not to mention his teammates’ – […]
