Hey now you're an all star, get your game on, go play...not only is Chase Utley "the man" in Philly and an obvious fan favorite, he apparently has won the nation over as well with his all-out play and has been voted an all-star for the 2nd straight season. Joining him in the City by the Bay are Fence-Face Rowand and King Cole, who are each making their first appearance at the mid-summer classic. Personally I feel Jimmy Rollins got snubbed, but I guess a quadruple-double is something every player accomplishes by mid-season...not quite. Have fun in San Fran gays (oops I meant guys), and remember "this time it counts", so win it for the NL so the Phils have home field advantage in this year's World Series.
Can you spare a quarter?:
Holy Heck-a-Mecca, sweet Jeebus, thank goodness that series is over. I was tired of all those fruity fraternizing Mets fans molesting each other's rumps after every strike thrown by a Mets pitcher and every batted ball by a Mets hitter...shut the hell up! Yesterday we avoided complete disaster as Kyle Kendrick came out and pitched a helluva game and the bullpen managed to hold the lead down, leaving the weekend with a quarter percent of victory...doesn't sound as bad as saying "1 outta 4".
On tap for the upcoming week is a 3 game set with the ASStros in Houston then a weekend pit stop in Colorado to inhale some of that "thin" Rocky Mountain air, chug a few Coors, and rock the Rockies.
