    Nice press, Gil. Allowed Hamiton to throw the long bomb!

    Well that was another disappointing season. I don’t mind saying that Gil’s W-L record has been taking quite a beating these past few seasons. Better be some baseball magic happening, or I might have to jump on the bandwagon there with peachyanddanny.

    How about the effectiveness of that press strategy? Oh yeah, right, after Gil mentioned it the next thing we see is the very end of the game. Damn luck of the pig stops Milford from a title shot.

    Thus begins the tradition of stealing Hamilton’s pig before the big game.

    Haha. Ain’t it sad when you put your loser life on hold and read a comic, then the comic turns to be about losers, also. Well, that makes ME feel better, anyhoo.

    And they didn’t play one home game all season as far as I could tell. I can’t remember how long I’ve read this strip (maybe back growing up in Detroit as a kid?) but has Milford ever won anything?

    I think we can all admit we learned something from this season … rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock, pig beats peacock

    A couple other things learned from today: Winning shots leave a comet tail while entering the hoop, Milford plays late away games (as this one is ending at 9:55 on a school night), Hamilton fans spit uncontrollably in P3 when they see a comet crash through the basketball hoop, and the police have not caught the thief who stole the dark Milford mens basketball jerseys at the beginning of the season.

    Back in the 1980’s Jack Berrill the originator of the strip allowed state championship teams. I had to look it up in my collection of Thorp reprint books, but they did. Maybe 49 years of coaching is enough for Gil. He has to be in his late 70s by now.
