Well go ph-igure. as I predicted Phillie got a little rowdy last night. The best/worst story I heard is about the Ray’s fan who climbed up a traffic lightpole and was knocked off by an “absolut” ly perfectly thrown vodka bottle .
Tossed by a drunk Phillies fan..I assume.
That F’n brutal man. Way over the top. I mean they stop selling alcohol in the 7th right? How drunk can you get in one inning?
You can’t buy advertising like that. “Absolut Vodka, the choice of drunk rowdy bottle tossers everywhere.” Priceless.
Remember people, enjoy don’t destroy. Here’s a link to the carnage:
The guy gets tagged with the bottle, loses his balance, hangs there suspended for a bit, then just drops to the ground. Hope he’s ok.
That will be one hell of a story he’ll be telling if he can get back to Florida.
Here is what Charlie had to say:
“I always thought we could win the World Series. I knew we could beat anybody in our league. I look at what I see in our guys, I see chemistry and attitude and our makeup and how much we like to play and how much the Philadelphia fans back us, I know we can win the World Series.
“This is for Philadelphia. This is for our fans. I look around here and who’s the world champions? I thank you.”
Classy guy, and he’s right.
I respect the hell out of sober Phillie fans. They understand hard times, and are stronger fans for it.
Say what you want, the “City of brotherly love” doesn’t always love a brotha.
As for the Tampa Bay Rays?
Almost there. I have a feeling that team will stay pretty much intact next season. If it works, don’t mess with it right?
Might I suggest a new hairstyle?
Go with a mullet. I know of a guy they can get styling tips from who is way ahead of the curve.
I think the World Series was decided by the pitchers.
A pitchers duel you might say.
I’m glad the game ended like it did. If it would have been a slugfest, it would have just made it harder to let go.
The next time I’ll be face to face with a Rockies player will be March 2, 2009 in Tucson…Spring Training
Rockies Vs Diamondbacks Game 3
Ubaldo was on his game tonight. He had his issues early on this season, but he has been solid and dependable this last couple months. He pitched seven scoreless innings tonight with ten strikeouts. He finishes his season 12-12, with 172 strikeouts and a respectable 3.99 ERA. Ubaldo pitched 198 2/3 innings, second only to Aaron Cook.
Manny and his mom———>
Manny Corpas allowed Chris Young to homer in the eighth and then in the ninth, Luis Vizcaino loaded up the bases and proceeded to walk home the winning run.
Ok D-backs, you got us back for making you look like chumps last year.
Johnson was incredible to watch allowing only two hits and one unearned run. He threw 105 pitches and struck out nine.
35,908 people watched the Rockies fall to the D-Backs 2-1 in the Rockies final game of 2008..there I said it
What a season this has been. One I’ll never forget. So many highs and lows. No different than life I guess.
I decided I will blog for the MLB playoffs.
Right now, I’m looking for a place to host my basketball blog.
I’ll be blogging for the Denver Nuggets and I will be known the Nugg Thug.
First in line today.
We hung out with Rockies longtime season ticket holder Alice.
Hunter and I made it to the Pavilion first. Hunter ran straight down to the field.
He asked Aaron Cook for a ball that was up against the fence.
Cookie tossed it to him without hesitation.
Hunter has been out snagging me the last couple of games(ok all year).
He and I were in different parts of the Pavilion for most of BP.
I snapped this picture of him doing his thing.
Clowns to the left of me .
Here I am stuck in the middle again.
I had a chance to snag two baseballs today and misjudged them both.
While I was taking this picture, a boy about Hunters age came up and asked if Hunter had gotten all those balls at BP today.
Hunter said “Yep”. The boy said that he hadn’t been able to get one. Hunter said ” sometimes it’s like that”.
I had to bit my lip because that came across kind of mean.
The little boy turned around and walked back to his mom. I looked at my boy and he knew what he needed to do. I didn’t have to say a word. Hunter ran over and gave that boy one of the balls he had snagged today. The little boy was elated and Hunter had that big old grin he gets when he knows he’s done something cool.
He’s getting it…my boy is getting it….Proud dad moment
Got to give some props tonight to my friend Dan. I straight up saw him catch Chris Iannetta’s home run hit in the second…
GREAT catch Dan..How many home runs balls is that for you like 40?
Dan and his daughter Emily earlier this——-> season.
I’m sitting close to where Dan caught that ball today at this Thursdays game with Berned..Maybe I’ll get lucky and catch my first live home run ball..
Then again, probably not if im sitting near Dan.
Below is a shot of Ryan Spilborghs dad during BP standing beside Robert. You think he bought that jersey??
<—Hawpe and Tulo
I took over two hundred pictures today.
Way too many to upload on here, but I will share the good ones (or at least the ones I like), with you.
Clint Hurdle giving the peace sign.
The Brat Pack The Big Unit picks up career win number 294 tonight. I hate losing to the D-Backs, but seeing Veteran Randy Johnson pitch was cool. He managed to keep the Rockies guessing this evening. What’s been up with Ubaldo his last couple of games? Has he gone back to his old ways? I’m seeing a pattern and its not pretty colors. Our pitching has to drastically improve soon. I like Ubaldo.I wonder what shook him. Was it Randy Johnson? Guess I can’t blame him. Rockies lose to the D-backs 4-2. We had chances in the fifth and seventh inning but couldn’t make anything of it. Such has been this season.
I’m still with you Rockies but losing at home sucks.
Nine games back with forty one games left. Hmmm..it’s still possible, but we are 1-9 against the D-Backs this year.
That near collision with Barmes and Hawpe was seriously close. Glad they both are ok.
Next game for me is Thursday with B.
