Being a Philly sports fan and sports fan overall, and I'm not playing as much (for right now), I'm going to blog about some sports.
Baseball is on the horizon. With pitchers and catchers reporting last week, the boys of summer will be here in no time.
But before they can play, they can have some fun.
Our stud first baseman was awarded his money today....
All 10 million of it
I really wished they could settle this before the aribritation case began for a couple reasons.
1. Is 3million a huge difference? Especially, when he will get a long term mulit-million contract.
2. The Phillies had the taste of playoffs last year and after seeing that the crappy/choke artists Mets signed one of the best pitchers, that is not on steriods or HGH (maybe, who knows who is using in this league) in the league. You would think Our 2006 MVP, would accept the 7 million, and say, spend the extra 3 on some pitching.
After the Mets signing of Santana, they are now the frontrunners for NL East division. A division that Atlanta once owned is now a 3 horse race, between, Philadelphia, NewYork, and Atlanta. This division is one of the best in baseball.
Its still cold out, so hockey is still playing. Well I think it is. My fly guys are on season worst 8 game skid. They always seem to do this. Play well for a while and then shit the bed. And when it gets bad, it gets worst. News of Simon Gagne is out for the season and the playoffs (if there any). I cant go through another year of no playoff hockey in this town. Of all the professional sports, playoff hockey is the best IMO. What this team needs a good kick in the butt. There are players that really need to set up, especially this guy. The future captain, is doing all he can right now, he is having a stellar year. They also need to know who there goalie is, with about 20-23 games left they need a steady netminder.
He did it again. I'm so glad that I get to see this in my lifetime. I know Jack was great, but this guy is God. I'm sure Schaubs, will agree. I think Nike, has put some special radar in his golf balls to find the bottom of the cup.
My poker game, is non-existent. I need to re-evaluate it. I need a change.
