    YES! Another wasted season has been brought to a close. OK, injuries submarined this team but if a coach is as good as Thorp, he should end up with better results, even with mediocre players.

    Shout isn’t the word for what it makes me want to do.

    It’s impossible that Tip could have landed in the end zone without a Valley Tech player anywhere close to him. Or maybe he vaulted in from the 15-yard line and cleared their line, their linebackers and their defensive backfield.

    Fonzie would be proud!

    Has anyone been keeping track of Milford’s win/loss record? I have an idea that they’ve had a winning season!

    I think “shout” is the right verb for me but “yes!” is not the right interjection.

    Tipperello’s SportsCenter highlight aggravated EES in P1. Nice Daniel Bryan reference in P3.

    Next year on Game Day, Lee Corso is going to re-create the leap when they bring the set to the Milford/Valley Tech game. Of course, the interview with Big John Pascoe will fail miserably, but no one will notice as they cart Lee away on a mobile stretcher.

    Hurdling is illegal by NFHS rules.

    TD should have been disallowed.

    Based on his cheerleading, I would have expected Tip to shout, “Positive resolution!” or “Satisfactory result!”

    On the bright side, the pointlessness of this story arc has persuaded the aliens earth isn’t worth conquering. The space fleet is turning around in P3.

    I believe hurdling is when you use an opponent for leverage. Illegal in high school, legal in college and the pros. But no level of football lets you use a teammate to launch yourself in the air.

    I didn’t know Valley Tech was the Sharks

    It would have been fitting had Nunn stuck his landing on the back of a prone Pascoe. The resulting Heimlich type exhalation might have produced at least a single, loud, single syllable word. I can think of a couple, but probably wouldn’t be acceptable for the strip. (Olympic observation: he didn’t ‘stick’ the landing. Feet apart .2 deduction)

    So before injuries they couldn’t win very often. Then after the team is decimated they go with the “run the quarterback every play” offense and upset the team going for the championship. Yah.
