The Good, The Bad, and The Stupid (and, as always, The Hot)
The good: Taking 2 out of 3 in this past weekend’s series with the Mets. Combining Saturday’s and Sunday’s runs, we had 21…to their 5. Love it! Santana got shelled (love that, too). Victorino hit a grand slam. Doc was incredible, and Moyer put forth a pretty solid effort (who’d have thought he’d outlast Johan the Great? AND be the guy that gets walked so that a run scores?) Beautiful. Just beautiful.
Of course, there’s the bad: We got our buttshanded to us on Friday. Kendrick still sucks. And people like this moron infested my lovely city of Philadelphia all weekend long.
And then there’s the stupid: Ryan Madson, I’m looking at you. Kicking a chair out of frustration and breaking your toe? STUPID. Also, moronic Phillies fan who ran onto the field and got Tasered? Between you and Vomiting Phillies Fan from a few weeks ago, you’re making us ALL look like jerkfaces. (We’re not all jerkfaces. But the nice/cool Phillies fans don’t seem to make many headlines.)
And, finally, the hot: We saw the return of Brad Lidge, and damn, have I missed watching him! He didn’t implode, which is also hot (not that he really had a chance to, though). And the hottest thing of all? In 20 days, I’m gonna be meeting COLE HAMELS. I got my Photo Booth ticket in the mail yesterday…I’m already so excited/hyperactive/etc! *squeal* Yes, I know, I’ve met Hamels before. But he’s still hot, and so I want to meet him again. I cannot believe I have almost 3 weeks to wait! At least between now and then I’ll be going to a Twins game, which will temporarily distract me from Hamels-related hyperness (although hopefully I get my voice back in time to meet Hamels…screaming at all the gorgeous Twins can really take its toll on one’s throat, you know!)
Right now both of my teams (Phillies and Twins) are in first place. Not by much, but by enough. And hopefully they both keep kickin’ butt…
