This Week in Milford

Watch 55!

Filed under: actual action, Fontastic, football, Gil Thorp — timbuys @ 6:56 am


Panel 1: I thought Fillion was supposed to be small. He’s taller than Gil.

Panel 2: Wanna bet that this mistaken Oakwood player is their local equivalent to the obnoxious/precocious Milfordian adolescent?

Panel 3: Either Nick Hawker is carrying a grapefruit or Milford is passing the ball.

Minus points: Yesterday.

Good To See Gil Is Still Playing Aaron After His Locker Room Outburst The Day Before


So many questions at this point…

  • Did Gil ever get a word in edgewise?
  • When does Aaron stop addressing Gil and start addressing the guys in the locker room?
  • I confess to not being familiar with the ins and outs of pill popping. Does ones addiction and associated tolerance become so severe that you can be seen to ‘snack’ on the pills?
  • Did Gil take Aaron out for another round of milkshakes and slices of pie or is rage (aka frustration) all the fuel that this kid needs?
  • How much had that Central fan in the background had to drink before he/she lettered that sign?

Gil Is The System

Panels one and two: Gosh is Gil ever so bad at this.

Panel three: At what point do you think Whigham just gave up on getting the print on the door to line up with much of anything?

McShanes Hardware – For All Your Escheresque Building Needs


Folks, can we just mosey on past panels one and two? Thanks.

That brings us to McSHANES [sic], where we get a comparative bonanza of new information! Viz., Quad-A’s mother’s first name is Tina (not sure what street drugs that’s code for) and she’s in the back of a hardware store, which is presumably her place of employment.

Respectful Ignorance

Filed under: ?, Boredom in Milford, Fontastic, freak hands, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 7:58 am


Nothing like pulling a tall Freezy Bomb at the Swifti Mart in the dead of winter.

Did I say I was OK with the continued antics of Ken and Mike? I suppose that I did but these two really need to pick up the pace. Grabbing a drink at the corner store ain’t exactly the most exciting plot device.

A Regular Ol’ Bad Day

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Chunky Bracelets, Fontastic, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 1:01 pm


P1: The Ken and Mike show is a bit tedious but I can live with it a lot easier than a Bobby/Max/Knox type featuring prominently.

P2: Did we ever come up with a name for those little baby’s fist size onyx earrings so popular with the Milford women? Is there some corresponding signal Kaz is trying to send with his pearl white studs?

P3: Does AAAA’s hair serve as a quasi barometer for his energy level?

Bonus points:

Nice Net.

Those panes of glass are tremendous. I wish my desk at home looked out of a window like that!

Mad props to the MHS jersey designer for having the 4 nestled into the 2.

Hayden Fry Was A Tool But Kirk Ferentz Is Alright I suppose

I’ll leave it to our commenters to parse the rest.

I Suppose We Could All Skip This

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, Fontastic, Gil Thorp, Just plain sad — timbuys @ 7:01 am


Hmmm… I wonder what the first book someone will put in there might be.

Regardless, all of those days where we really got to know about Boo’s love of reading are finally paying off now, aren’t they?

Bonus points: Are we meant to understand that Barry is surreptitiously surveilling the scene from the boys’ room?
