Being a Sports Fan…

… means a little death every time you watch your team play. O.k. — being a Philadelphia sports fan means lots of little death every time you watch your team play. Watching this Eagles v. Packers game is torture. The Eagles cannot stop the run. McNabb is off his game. And yet, we’re still in it. We’re one big play away from a tie game.

I’ll just be here, trying not to throw up all game.

Update: Yaaaaaaaaaaaahooooooooooooooo!!! Hmmmm… Donovan Lehmann has a certain ring to it.

The Land of the Free

Our country is in danger of losing everything it ever stood for.

The experiences of Maher Ahar should be an embarrassment to every American.

This is not what our country stands for.

This is not what we do in the name of freedom.

This is not something we can stand idly by and allow to happen.

The time has come to demand accountability from this government.

The time has come to demand more information from this government.

The time has long since come and gone to mobilize and take back our country.

Tug McGraw Passes Away

"PHILPHU016000.jpg"

"1-2 count on Willie Wilson… the Tugger needs one more… one more…

YES! YES, HE DID!

The Phillies are the World Champions, the World Champions of baseball! It’s pandemonium at Veterans Stadium, 65,000 fans on their seat. This city has come together over a baseball team. The Phillies are the World Champions, this city knows it, and this city loves it."
