This Week in Milford

If you wanted sports, here’s a concentrated dose of sports. The girls’ volleyball team wins again! I don’t know who announces the win in panel 3. Is there a radio play-by-play happening, or is it livestreaming on someone’s phone or is there an exuberant fan calling the action? Hopefully, whoever it is knows what they’re doing. Maybe that was just one point and this guy is really going to get on people’s nerves.

The sound effects are doing the heavy lifting today. Wack and Pop make sense, but Spike is a little iffy. Sure, we know what a spike is, but does a spike sound like SPIKE? Not really. It’s probably more of a FAP. But Gil Thorp FAP-ed a few weeks ago so maybe we’re all FAP-ed out. I think we probably need a guy like Don Martin to do this correctly. In case you’re curious, Don Martin did once use a FAP according to the link in the prior sentence. and no, it didn’t mean what we snicker about these days. It was the sound of “a huge extension arm launched boxing glove hitting a doctor in the face”. See, that’s roughly the equivalent of a hard slap on a volleyball. It’s closer than SPIKE anyway.

Oh well. Milford wins. Are we hitting The Bucket. GAG!


  1. Hit the bucket for sure. Mimi is probably still sitting there, all pissed off, wishin she had dumped those papers on Gil after all

  3. If there’s there a tag for “Net atrocities”, Panel 3 is first team, and the flying over the net in 2 is awesomely athletic. Nice to see Keri had a growth spurt since summer.

  4. Thing is, this is the JV Volleyball team kicking ass. The Varsity could be winless for all we know. Assuming the coaches know what they’re doing (which is a big if), the Varsity players must be loaded with All State players, judging by the athleticism we’re seeing from the JV team. And these gals couldn’t make Varsity.
