    How about GIl, despite locker room discord, finds a way to pull his team together and leads Milford to a state title instead? At least it’ wouldn’t be the “Gil’s team stinks; Gil finds one kid he thinks can turn it around for him; Milford misses the playoffs anyway”. Besides, “The Bad News Bears” already did that plot and did it better than what “Gil Thorp” could muster on its best day.

    Asperger Syndrome, why, yes … British lad, kicked for Milford back in the ‘50s, right? I believe he’s Lord Asperger Syndrome now.

    Asperger sounds a bit like the menu item at the Bucket named after Coach Kaz. Is it a compulsion to try to demonstrate your ability to draw hands in every panel of a comic strip?

    Can’t resist nitpicking by pointing out that 3.3 is not a range. 3.3 to 3.6 would be a range.

    Nobody can communicate with each other in Milford without drinking coffee, or whatever it might be in those cups, and where did Gil get his, he walked in yesterday without one.

    So many disjointed and alien hands keep appearing.

    And Sarah, quite intently, flashes Gill that wedding ring in P3 just to let him know that all this office conversation will stay on the up and up despite what Gill’s real intentions might be in stopping by the guidance office (since Gill has never been to the guidance office in some fifty years of coaching).

    Gil keeps a mug in every office in the school. Wildcat got him a good deal for a case of them. I see Brody kicking the winning FG and named Homecoming King the same game. Will we have a 6’10" Bosnian/Lituanian/Moldovian transfer student who is legally blind for the upcoming basketball season?

    Aspergers or no, I bet Molly could persuade him.

    Molly has graduated, Coach Thorp needs a new shrew.

    Our new Syndrome of the quarter… except unlike Neal Cray’s Marfan Syndrome, I have heard of this one. Gil seems to be the only one who does not know about various health conditions affecting the youth of today.

    He’ll kick the winning FG in the last game and Gil will somehow cure him.

    Once again, no Playdowns for Gil. Valley Tech will again knock them out of the running and Gil will continue his streak as the world’s luckiest coach who can’t lose his job, regardless of performance.

    That’s quite a puss on Gil’s face in P1 today . . . must be the coffee the school counselor brews in her office.
