This Week in Milford

Transition into Ambition

gt09232017

Today we learn that The Secret Pelwecki will share linebacking duties with an internationally-known professor of economics (or maybe a bassist) who is currently on leave from his day job. If Pelwecki is to be a right guard/linebacker/fullback/butt of jokes (or, in Milfordese, RG/LB/FB/BOJ!) why is he getting reps at QB? Even more curiously, why is he wearing True Standish’s number? (BTW that link also shows an instance of Gil actually using a fullback.) You might think Gil would’ve retired that jersey and put it in a littlefreelibrary shrine on campus.

So: a bunch of slow receivers too small to play tight end. A small, scrappy, quick quarterback. A couple of decent offensive linemen, one of whom will occasionally line up at fullback. What kind of offense will Gil put on the field this fall? Speculate away.

The only tight end I care about is Marjies

Filed under: football, Gil Thorp, huge earrings, Marjie Ducey, premature baldness — robmize2013 @ 6:03 pm

Well look who’s back – – its Marjie Ducey, who we havent seen since probably last football season. I dont think they played enough baseball to warrant her presence, and I dont feel like combing through the archives to find her talking hoops either. (Need our trusty Thorpian researcher to do that job. Thanks)

How the hell does any football team have so many former tight ends at wide receiver, and no former linebackers? ( Calling Kevin Pelwicki) If thats the case, who’s playing tight end now? Oh yeah, maybe Kevin. And it really makes sense to have your fastest player at QB instead of WR or RB. Can tell by the way Marjie looks at Gil that she thinks he’s full of crap too.

I dont give a crap about Panel 1 by the way;  whenever that storyline wants to blow itself up is fine with me. The Glee Club and football havent been connected since the Brady Bunch with Peter Brady.

One more thing– how does Marjie know whos playing quarterback before Gil tells her? She’s done this before; instead of Gil telling her she tells him about someone. Kind of reverse psychology.

Love her earrings by the way. Marjie we’ve missed you…

More girl talk

Well I guess this is an improvement over the last storyline; cute girls having a discussion of roping in a stud on the track team and figuring out how to lure him in when the one who is truly interested isnt the one that needs to do the roping. Whatever.

Gary Meola looks like a surfer dude from his pic on this site, but his day job is as a real-estate agent for Coldwell Banker in Maui Hawaii. Cool. Now if we can persuade him to transfer his offices to Milford we have a real story eh? If I lived in Hawaii I’d rather stick my head in a microwave and turn it on high then move to a tank town like Milford, and hang out with girls with blue hair and that one in P2 with platinum blond hair like Marjie D. Pass the ketchup before you take another bite of burger please.

Downwardly mobile in what way?

Filed under: Chunky Bracelets, freak hands, Gil Thorp, lessons learned, Marjie Ducey — robmize2013 @ 6:01 pm

Well gang, its back to black and white for the moment as I cant copy the Seattle Times strip for some odd reason. Sorry – I know you all miss that blue hair!

So Aaron finds Ma’s pills in her hiding place and reveals her to be a pathological liar as well as a drug abuser. I suppose the pills maybe help her to stay awake for long hours or whatever, but still no excuse to sacrifice that for her sons well-being.

Of course, she could ask Gil the same question in a way – his idea of coaching is to let someone else do all the work for free until the shit finally hits the fan, then he hastily cleans up all the months-old stench left behind from his own neglect of his team(s).

Again we waste all winter with this one issue and the girls team has been left invisible with nary a Hadley V. Baxendale around to stir up some more interesting trouble.

Finally – why does Mom need her glasses on her head sitting at home?  Cant anyone in this strip who wears glasses wear them ON THEIR FACE?? Only exception is of course Marjie Ducey; but everyone else feels the need to show off their frames as a head ornament.

Largely Disappearing

Aaron Aagard, non starter, still can’t sustain his effort coming off the bench. I wonder why that is? The dumpy apartment, the sort of actuary mom, Molly the girlfriend. These are the things we know. Why won’t they add up?? So confounding. It’s Monday, and we’re still confounded.

Is that Marjie at the press table, calling the game to herself as she prepares her story for The Star?

Marjie Ducey can be a handful in the sack..

Filed under: basketball, Gil Thorp, Marjie Ducey — robmize2013 @ 7:47 pm

… aint that the truth?! Hey we need some gallows humor at this point already. And she wont get shoved around either! (on 2nd thought, why not? :)) She certainly plays bigger then her 5-4.. and with 3 guards competing for 2 spots, there’ll be plenty of solid action this season both under and above the covers.

Thats all I got today, but it may be my best work in a while. Short and sweet. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Agreed. I’m Less Than Impressed

There’s no doubt Aaron’s gonna hit the laptop. He can’t type with those freaky fingers.

Panel 2 is Aaron Aagard when he’s not ready to rumble. He totally got schooled by that other guy. Presumably.

Check out Marjie, pencil at the ready. Maybe Gil is thinking about going nom nom nom on that pencil.

Any day with Marjie Ducey is a good day.

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Marjie Ducey, Marty Moon — robmize2013 @ 5:31 pm

Marjies 2-day interview continues, again without an adult present. We’ve gone over this before, but in Milford, you can fly solo no matter your age when it comes to newspaper stories. Love Marjies deadpan expression in P2 – she’s thinking ‘ you really think I’m keeping this low-key? How? Writing it in Chinese on the last page upside down?

It wasnt even her idea at all – the fact that they were down to recruiting her out of the blue tells us all we need to know about their talent pipeline.

And of course Marty Moon is gonna talk about it on his show; after he couldnt figure it out at the game he was ANNOUNCING! Where he had a roster of names and numbers right in frickin front of him. Yeah I know “HE” isnt exactly feminine. I just cant believe she never once took her helmet off the whole game. There’s so many dopes in Milford they should glue them all together into a giant statue in front of City Hall.

Tribute to Panel 1 today featuring the Rays from 1957.
