This Week in Milford

November 19, 2022

“Onomatopoeic Saturday,” or “A Slap on the Wrist, Then a Crack on the Ankle”


SLAP! AGH! AHHH! CRACK! Keri’s turning into an episode of 1960s Batman all by her lonesome. She might’ve had help from Luhm with that last one, though. Such a shiny, shiny floor.

What’s all this about a nurse? Where’s Rick Scott when you need him, not available for the jayvees? No matter; Keri’s getting sidelined for a bit. Call it karma for not getting benched or kicked off the team for punching out Dorothy if you will. Gil has done the same to kids not named Thorp for less.

This should give Barajas time to drop a couple of reaction strips about Keri’s preferential treatment. With all the jumping around we’ve seen, those have been in a little short supply. Consider the Tabitha-now-Toby making the team, making funky plays and converting into a skill position player subplot. In the days of Rubin we’d have had at least one if not more pissy middle-aged person complaining about Toby being allowed to play football, followed by A Very Special Gil Thorp in which some preachy lesson would be learned. In the days of Jenkins this would just not be spoken of.

With Keri sidelined, maybe we’ll smash cut to another subplot. Time for the Luke Martinez Revenge Tour to resume? Or The Last Days of Meemaw? Will she outlast Funky Winkerbean?

meta: Gocomics has been down all day (rumors of turning into a pay site circulating), plus I’m on the road today. Sorry for the late post.

  3. I don’t think that would be the reason. They wouldn’t just take it offline then bring it back saying, “Sorry, you have to pay to see it.” There’d be warning. Plus, other sites are inaccessible. and aren’t coming up either.

  4. Keri came in as a shortish gurl. At this point, she’s Spud Webb, trending to Muggsy Bogues.

  6. … and yes, fighting in school is a Bozo No-No at every school in the country and will get said player suspended from team activities except at Milford of course, not including butter knife sightings

  7. I’m very interested in knowing how Gilbertina would have handled the cafeteria beatdown if she was the one coaching volleyball this year…
