Hey World Series partygoers. Party pug says to SLOW YOUR ROLL, the game has been postponed due to the freggin east coast rain. You can continue trying to get your groove on Wednesday evening.
Just so you know, Party Pug doesnt like to drink and drive, it’s too hard to hold the shot glass and steer.
Especially when it interferes your baseball plans. There is nothing worse than doing all the prep work involved to go to a baseball game, driving there, paying your 10-20 bucks to park, waiting in line, then hearing the game is cancelled due to the rain. Been there, done that, it blows.
You have to eat the parking fee because it’s not like the stoned parking lot attendant will give you a refund. It’s tough luck there.
Then to add insult to injury, just as you reach your car you hear someone say “it’s ok, we need the rain”.
If you live in Colorado you learn to hate that comment. I say screw that, let it rain when I’m sleeping…You can quote me.
At least with Bud deciding to suspend game five, it gives the phanatic time to dry himself out.
You think a wet dog smells bad? Soaked, the phanatic probably smells like a hundred dirty mopheads.
It may be time to pha-breeze that big Oscar with a blowhole looking muppet.
Damn, I wanted to see some baseball tonight. I don’t care about the rain. It’s dry in my living room.
Get this, the game tomorrow is the same timeframe as the Nuggets first regular season game in Utah.
Tomorrow could be the most exciting three innings in World Series history.Or another rainout. It’s all up to Bud Selig and Mother Nature. In that order.
Anyone think <—Bud Selig looks like Billl Gates?——>
Hey east coast, it was a beautiful day in Colorado. Not a drop of rain. Mid 70’s and a cloudless sky for most of the day. I heard a rumor again today about a Holliday trade coming up. Who knows? Enjoy this sunset picture…D
Admit it, you love that title. It’s probably my tv, but Kazmir looked nervous, pale and a little shook by the end of the first inning. Major pressure for this guy.
He starts the first by walking one, then launches a ball into Chase Utley ribs. Utley was expressionless. He’s used to it. Utley stands so damn close to the plate.
Victorino comes up to bat, hits a low pop to left field and scores two runs. Simple as that.
Phillies are in there like swimwear———>
Did you see the look on Kazmir’s face when they finally got the third out? I think at that point he was extremely relieved to get out that mess with only two runs scored.
Top of the fourth Carlos Pena hits a double that could have been a triple had he stopped watching the ball and just ran. No matter, Longoria was up next and scored him.
Now its 2-1 Phillies.
Philly gets a scare when Hamels tries to bunt and the ball hit the bat and jammed his fingers. I think I’ve figured out who Cole looks like.
It’s a cross between Jim Carey and Tom Brady. What do you think?
Am I way off here?? I dont think so.
You really were able to see the effects of the elements in the fifth inning. Rollins bobbles infield pop fly that Rocco Baldelli hit. Normally it was an easy catch. The wind was so bad he clearly couldn’t track it and the ball hit him in the wrist. There is some serious jacked up weather going on in Philly right now. Seems more like football weather. You know those Florida boys are hurting. Joe Maddon looked like he was colder than a well diggers butt in January.
After back to back walks in the fifth inning and Kazmir bids his farewell after a tap on the butt. Replaced by Grant Balfour who finishes off the inning with no damage.
Anybody think Balfour looks like Ed McCaffrey, former Bronco great??
I’m just saying. It’s weird. Or maybe I am.
Top of the sixth Pena singles and scores Upton and now things are interesting. Then they break to commercial, it comes back to the game, and the game is suspended due to the rain. Guess I’ll continue as the game does, if it does.
The time is now 8:57 pm MST
Game 5 is suspended until tomorrow (weather permitting). First suspended World Series game ever. . I wish Cole Hamels could carry on and finish what he started. The Phillies were of robbed of his full potential in this rainy incomplete game five, .
He said he closed his eyes and just swung.
Funny, all that ever did for me was give me a nasty bruise.
Then I’d get to listen to an impatient umpire bark at me to “take my base”.
Joe hits his first career homer, doing what no other pitcher has done in the World Series since 1974.
Out freggin standing Joe !
Rays fans want to believe. I’ve been supporting the Phillies since the postseason and even I think the Rays coming back and winning the World Series would be a hell of a story. Last to first, down 3-1, etc. Let me just say:
It’s probably not going to happen (there’s a safe statement). Lets look at some quick history:
Rays come in as the 43rd team to be down 3-1 in the World Series. Of those forty three, only five have come back to win it since 1925. Thats like twelve percent. The last team to come back from the two game deficit and win the World Series was the Kansas City Royals in 1985. So it’s safe to say it doesn’t happen a lot.
The Rays have that whole statistical history thing against them. But, so did the Phillies with their long break before the World Series and they proved history wrong.
Here’s the Rays immediate problem. Cole Hamels.
For some reason the dude reminds me of Tom Brady.
This hippy is undefeated in the postseason and if he gets his fifth win tonight, he breaks the record for most postseason wins and helps his team to a World Series ring.
That my friends(McCain moment), is a lot of pressure for a young dude.
He is a rock, lets see if he cracks under pressure….not likely.
Reality check. Tonight could be it for baseball this year. Truth be told, it’s been over for me since the end of September.
That is one of the things I like about Zack Hample. He is a fan of the sport.
He can enjoy the Phillies World Series win all year. But for me, when the sun rises tomorrow the Phillies are the enemy again(if they win tonight).
I believe I can only TRULY enjoy a World Series Championship if the Rockies are the last ones left standing. No worries, I can wait.
I dont know if what I just wrote makes sense, but I’m not going any deeper than that or I’ll lose myself.
What are your plans?? Any readers out there going to be in Tucson the first week of March?
Stop by the Mobile Blog Unit RV and say hello. You’ll have no trouble spotting the RV.
We’ll be parked at the Hi Corbett field parking lot during the days for about a week doing some live(as possible) blogging and testing out some new ideas. Should be a good learning experience.
Speculation begins now, What about Holliday, Fuentes, Atkins, Taveras??? Who should stay, who should go? I have my own opinions about each of them, but I would love to hear what others think.
When the series is over I will writing some entries called ironically “Should they stay or should they go” it should be a fun topic with some reader participation by way of commenting.
Feel free to comment. It lets me know that you actually get me, or don’t. It also lets me know if your read the whole entry or just look at the pictures.
By the way, thanks for looking at the pictures and for checking out the Rant..
I slipped off the smoking wagon on Sunday..Back on the wagon tomorrow…D
