Take a look at tonight's bobblehead of Jamie Moyer (free to all attending fans). With all the modern day technology at the disposal of the media relations and marketing department you mean to tell me they couldn't create a better likeness of Grand Pappy. Seriously, they didn't even make him look old, which is probably the easiest thing besides the color of his skin to get correct. At least they do have him pitching with the left hand, so I guess not all is lost. This promotional item/giveaway is in remembrance of Moyer's fine performance on September 30th of last season to help clinch the NL East crown. Since joining the Phils in August of 2006, Jamie has won 20 games and hasn't missed a scheduled start (that's really saying something for the elder statesman of MLB). It's fitting that he pitches tonight on the day of his inception into the bobblehead kingdom. I'm rooting for you Jamie, and I hope the offense gives you something to work with...go Phils!
Real Writers Hate Bloggers:
Below is a video of Costas Now where Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights, goes off on one of the dudes from DeadSpin. Basically it all boils down to Buzz being a sanctimonious pompous asshole and declaring blogs to be the filth and downfall of our great nation. Best moment, hearing Bob Costas utter "f**kface". The NOFX reminder at the bottom of the screen is classy too, love me some drugged-up punkers!
