  1. Feels like the Fiesta a few years ago when Clemson put the 31-0 on em
  2. Just the ideal backup who can step in and beat pretty much anyone. Can't believe teams keep letting him go
  3. Fluky game all around. Not worried about the Eagles yet. In the NFL, it's really hard to win when you know in the back of your mind, a loss doesn't hurt you much. Especially a division game against a team you already beat. Nothing really notable about this, other than I agree with some above that Heineke wins where Wentz would not have.
  4. Can't be mad at the Phillies. I wasn't expecting to devote so much time and energy to watching baseball the last 3-4 weeks. After 12 years not doing that, it's pretty exhausting.
  5. Yeah, did he think UF would somehow score while taking a knee at the +27 yard line? Had to pin them back to do it
  6. Those crowd misery shots, including the App State shirt, are some of the best work ESPN has ever done
  7. Cancelo blatant foul/red card in the box allows Fulham to tie City 1-1 in 29th minute. City will be shorthanded for 60 minutes
  8. This is great, and you only scratch the surface about how stupid they are. Bohm, Castellanos, even Realmuto who is so smart on the field. They have no idea what is happening in the world outside their clubhouse. I mean their current rally song was blatantly lifted from the fucking 2021 loser Red Sox (via Schwarber). And they don't know nor care that it's a remix of a remake. But those guys are prone to slumping (other than Harper). Not so much about last night as just normally having lots of 0-3 and 0-4's with mostly K's.
  9. If I didn't have rooting interest, I'd be mildly entertained by this series. But game 1 was the only time you had the late inning tension that people like to see in every WS game.
  10. It's good to know this whole stupid era, basically my entire adult lifetime, is coming to an end. Let the scumbags be scummy and see if they can actually coach finally
  11. Yeah, I think the books like to circulate stuff like that to encourage crazy parlay betting. That said, I was at the game and when Bohm was introduced pre-game, a guy in front of me at concessions said "Bohm home run, $100 to win $950 baby!". My thought was, you wasted your money dude. Turns out he was a happy bro about an hour later.
  12. Maybe the communities should be allowed to decide? Since teams are trying to draw 2 million+ local fans, maybe they should build a facility that those people want to visit regularly? As opposed to October weddings 1,500 miles away. Philly, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, DC...I don't think a dome has ever been seriously considered for any MLB or NFL team in those cities. Without CR'ing this (read: definitely CR), spending a ton of money on an unpopular facility that will run up massive energy bills is not going to fly right now in most large cities. It is absolutely true Game 3 could have been played just by starting four hours earlier, a decision which could have been made on Sunday. It's also true that one of these days, a northern host is gonna have multiple cancellations and games played under 40 degrees. Those are two completely different problems, but neither will ever change. Good news - the rest of this week will be beautiful here in Philly.
  13. It's pretty simple, they cheated but failed in game 1, then cheated successfully in game 2! I'm not picking up a lot of whining here in Philly about the new cheating. I think tonight is the Stros first trip here since the 2017 scandal though, so I'm sure there will be trash can references and signs. Otherwise our fans will take their seats and clap politely when warranted.
  14. Knebel bombed out like 3-4 months ago, he won't be anywhere near this series. Pimphand is correct, rotation is Wheeler-Nola-Suarez and probably Syndergaard but game 4 is a bullpen game either way. Astros pitching has way more postseason experience, but it's not all good numbers for those guys especially in the World Series.
  15. A trying-to-be-objective preview from a native Philadelphian who once again lives in Philly: What has worked for the Phillies the last couple weeks is sending two of the best starters in MLB into half-dead road ballparks, just needing to grab one of two weekday games, which is exactly what happened (won both in StL actually). Then come home for the weekend and just overwhelm with sporadic home runs, all hands on deck bullpen efforts and a bonkers crowd for three hours. The World Series should be different in that there are no half-dead crowds paying $39 per ticket like Atlanta. The day of week doesn't matter, everyone knows this is it. But there is still the possibility of Wheeler and/or Nola getting a road win. Then if Stros to come to Philly and DON'T win two of three? That creates a toss up at the end.
  16. Should be calm and high 50s for the next two games. Sunday possible storms in the afternoon. Teams are pretty evenly matched. Now that we're into games with the 3-4 starters and probably lots of bullpen innings, I guess that favors the Padres. Especially since I think Rob Thomson will have a quick hook and Phillies have to pray not to get blown out from like the 4th-7th innings. SD bullpen is pretty strong even in the middle. Games probably come down to which bats get hot beyond the handful of MVP types.
  17. Damn that was easy. It's definitely surprising, but in Philly we knew weeks ago things were setting up pretty well. We had an easy schedule down the stretch and were getting healthy. The bracket was setting up for us to get the Central champ (pushover) followed by the East champ, and neither ATL/NYM really had to deal with the full strength Phillies recently. The West teams are beatable too. A little concerned both those teams have bullpens that can slam the door from like the 5th inning on. Hope it's the Padres since they've waited so long as well.
  18. Strider's start was so aborted, Herschel Walker paid for it
  19. I'd be more scared of Yordan than any hitter in the playoffs. Grown ass man mode
  20. Mets fans were blaming the format too...won 100 games and now have to play these undeserving pests. (Who traveled thousands of miles to beat you on your home field.) Follow the Premier League, if your team is best across the whole season, you can have the trophy clinched weeks before the season even ends.

    No statue and the group that idolizes JoePa has dwindled steadily since they were so publicly embarrassed in 2011. No joke, I'm sure COVID claimed a lot of them. Rhule played and coached under Paterno and has spoken very highly of him. Message boards will always have a "nuke Pedo State" faction so it continually comes up. I wonder how many of them are also in the "hire Matt Rhule" or "we should go after Franklin" factions.
