    Huh. Drunk doofus thinks real well of himself, huh? (That, and hrm, is Valley Tech in Milford? No reason the local tech HS couldn’t be, but I didn’t know that.)

    “New young buck?” Slime, say hello to sleeze. Are you ready to rumble, Milford? Break out those switchblades.

    In all reality Marty I’m going to show Thorp and his teams no mercy and the only regret I’ll have is that the clock runs out. Milford fans have been getting short changed by Thorp for years !In all reality , I’ll drink to that Luke , Cheers. Thanks Marty.

    “New young buck” and “podcast” don’t really seem to go together… unless it’s the Milwaukee Bucks podcast.

    High school athletic directors and coaches at an out of town bar? Wonder if Gil put that Old Fashioned and six pack of Hoo on his expense report?

    P-1: You’ve heard the walls have ears. In Milford, they talk a lot.

    P-2: Using reverse Psychology, Marty sits lower than his guest.

    P-3: Apparently, being in his 40’s makes Luke a young buck among Milford Valley coaches.

    It seems that buzzing brick on the table is an early warning system to let Gil know when Marty is going to interview anyone not named Thorp.

    Recently I made a comment to a friend who was moving to a new home that the movers would be strong “young bucks” (my circle of friends are all well past 60; we can’t toss those heavy pieces of furniture around like we used to). I was reprimanded that the term “young bucks” is racist, that “young bucks” was a derogatory term referring to young black men.

    Can anyone verify?

    I don’t think I’ve ever said or thought this before with this strip, but things could get interesting here. Let’s get ready to ruuuuumble!

    He was Luke Martinez in the bar. Now he’s Luke Hernnadez? What’s going on? And who spells it Hernnadez?

    Only Marty would begin an interview with a new coach by asking him about a barroom squabble. He’s sore that he wasn’t there to broadcast the play-by-play.

    “What this town needs”? How many high schools are there in Milford? And unlike colleges, most HS Athletic director positions are filled by teachers doing double duty. The last three I knew were math and history teachers as their regular job along with coaching one sport. The small town of Milford having a full time athletic director is a little far-fetched. Now if that was a 4000 student HS in Texas or in some sports oriented schools in California or Florida, yes, but Milford and Valley Tech? Not likely.

    What a doofus…instead of focusing on what his plan is as the new coach, he can’t wait to publicly talk s*** and insult another coach.

    P 4 (MM): “…well, no…Gil didn’t say anything but some other people who were there said that you were loud, obnoxious, and seemed like you had been overserved…”

    i didn’t think podcasts were done at radio stations. I thought they were done in your home. Guess I was wrong and don’t really know what a podcast is? Why not just go live on the radio??

    Henry, my dude, you’ve left me in the van for 3 days now! Why did you bother to bring me back if only to abandon me in a minivan with Kid Dork and Mimi, the queen of newfound self-pity. Seriously, dude, all those years of playing the loving supportive wife and THIS is the year she chooses to unroll this whole “you don’t love me” shtick?? I mean, I appreciate the airpods and all, but I’m literally on the verge of calling CPS!

    More Retcon. Marty now has a new-fangled “podcast” thingy, while Gil still has a flip phone and drinks Old Fashioneds.

    Hey, what is that MM under WDIG on the building? Is that implying that Marty owns the station? Surprised that he could rake in such a fortune doing attack sports radio. Attack high school sports radio in fact. And who called him about the “fight” at the bar? One of the other weenie coaches who was cowering at the bar? And speaking of weenies, don’t be a weenie and neglect to read today’s Mopped Up Thorp.
