This Week in Milford

March 17, 2023

No, call me Moron.

Pretty sad that after a kid misses ONE shot in a Pop-A-Shot game where you normally get a bunch of shots and try to make as many as possible in 30 seconds or so, Gil has to step in and instruct him on proper form. Hey Gil, your 2 feet taller at least, so your perspective on the rim is quite different. Its kinda like me teaching a little kid how to dunk a basketball on a 4 foot rim. Im 6’3. Dont even have to jump for that. And little kids cant hold a ball like that – they need to push the ball with 2 hands or else it wont make it to the basket. Doh.

Then we have P2 where the ball is suddenly smaller then the beach ball drawn yesterday. Great Gil you made ONE shot. The object is to grab the ball again and make MORE shots. One is shit in that game. A line drive style works best in Pop A Shot, as the ball come back faster after it goes through. Gil wants him to shoot moonballs. The way Gildo is shooting, the ball will hit the fuckin ceiling before the net.

P3 – Little Luke thanks Gil the way a kid addresses an adult, but ol Gil wants him to pretend he’s an adult already. As a kid I only called adults by their first name when they were my relatives (Aunt Murial, Uncle Ben). What happened to “Coach Thorp”? You mean to tell me all the kids Thorp coaches call him Coach Thorp and this tike already is on a freakin first name basis with him??

Nobody reading this will argue with P3. Generations come and go, but familiarity rules are timeless.

And Gil just broke them.


  1. Yeah. Go tf away Gil and let the kids be kids. Most kids would consider Gil’s attempt at instruction here a huge intrusion. If little luke is so unathletic, why hasn’t pops hairball, or “ the greatest Fuckin coach to ever put on pants” helped him more? Either way, LL would probably tell Jami later “… well, my dad is a dick, but your dad is a tool…”. P 3 is easy to say…Jami only has this kid as a friend.

  3. Rob, No problem but were you going to do Saturday’s post? I will be more than happy to do it if you don’t have time. Could you let us know one way or the other? I’m sorry, I didn’t know how to get a hold of you, Big Guy.

  5. Rob, that’s cool. No worries. I understand your point. Thanks for letting me know, Big Guy. You da Man. As long as Gil gets slayed, I’m a happy camper(ha).

  6. It’s a pop a shot… get the shots up as quickly as possible and put a lot of spin on them. That’s the only trick.
