Remember that 4 game sweep of the New York Mets? I barely do. In fact, following that masterful and emotionally charged romp over our NL East foes which was sandwiched in between a 6 game winning streak the Phils have since turned into complete butt-balls. What exactly is a butt-ball you ask. Well, it's a team that continuously chokes season after excruciatingly painful heartbreaking season. It's the same old song and dance for the Phils all over again, and personally I'm tired of the Macarena...it's time to bump out Digital Underground's Humpty Dance! So the Phils had a convincing 9-1 victory yesterday and still sit within 3 games of the Wild Card. Will it be more of that played out jingle that has Spanish lyrics which Ruben Amaro Jr. doesn't even comprehend, or will it be getting down and nasty with the humpty hump? Wins are nice, they should try it more often.
All right, Stop whatcha doin', 'cause I'm about to ruin, the image and the style that ya used to. I look funny, but yo I'm makin' money see, so yo world I hope you're ready for me. Now gather round, I'm the new fool in town, and my sound's laid down by the Underground. I drink up all the Hennessey ya got on ya shelf, so just let me introduce myself. My name is Humpty, pronounced with a Umpty.
The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump. Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump.
Turns out penis does not rhyme with Ennis, but tennis does. Believe or not I'm a highly educated man, but apparently 6+ years of college can't make me the rhymer that Eminem is. Therefore, I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to yesterday's starter John Ennis, as my connection with his last name and a man-piece was inappropriate and uncalled for. Lets just be thankful his last name isn't Tussy, Lagina, or Hunt.
Yesterday's victory over the Florida Marlins was spearheaded by a group of castaways- John Ennis, Clay Condrey, Chris Coste, and Greg Dobbs. At one time or another during each players' career they were set adrift by another club, and in Condrey and Coste's case the Phils have even acted as if they didn't want them at various times. Ennis got the spot start and gave the Phils 4 innings of 1 run ball, and then Condrey took over for 2.1 scoreless innings earning his 5th win of the season. The offense was aided by the go-ahead bomb from Coste (his 5th hr) and Dobbs had a 2 for 3 day at the plate with 2 runs and 2 rbi, including his 9th homerun.
