Tale Of The Tape - Washington DC

And the TotT series continues. Today's victim - D.C. and their beloved Gnats.

Popular Mayor
Philly - Frank Rizzo. He has a statue made of bronze in Center City.
D.C. - Marion Berry. He has a crack pipe made of glass in his pocket.
Advantage - Philly.

City Architect
Phillly - William Penn
D.C. - Pierre Charles L'Enfant
Advantage - Philly. Our country's capital was designed by a Frenchman? I'm surprised the White House isn't located on Surrender Avenue...

Phallic Symbol
Philly - Pat Burrell
D.C. - Washington Monument
Advantage - D.C. You don't see Washington letting Tampa come take their legends...

Who Gets A Road
Philly - JFK Boulevard, Lincoln Highway.
DC - George Washington Memorial Parkway, Jefferson Davis Highway
Advantage - Philly. Jefferson Davis? Does leading the fight for slavery deserve a road?

ESPN Contributions
Philly - Writer Jayson Stark is ex-Inquirer and BBTN icon; John Kruk started his TV career at Comcast Philly.
D.C. - SportsCenter babe Sage Steel moved from Comcast MidAtlantic (Balt.-DC)
Advantage - D.C. Kruker is good, but me likely Sage Steele.

By a narrow margin, 3-2, Philly takes another TotT. The Gnats stand no chance.

say again?

What food is Washington known for? Or does the Philly Cheese Steak automatically win

GM-Carson said...

Washington vetoes any official food naming rights...something about unconstitutional or something like that.

That Sage Steele is one flavorful gal.

GM-Carson said...

Happy birthday to my favorite non-star Phillie of days-gone-by, Wes Chamberlain.

Zach said...

I'd say the Phallic symbol is a push. Even if PtB isn't here anymore I bet there are a bunch of little Pats running around South Philly as result of his reign as Midnight Mayor.

GM-Carson said...

Burrell's Girls sure miss his Phallic.

Jeremy said...

Alrighty, the series against the Rox got the offense warmed up, Brett Myers had a decent outting. We are in line for a series sweep of the lowly Gnats. Cheese Steaks are like Chuck Norris they can't be beaten and they give you a great messy beard.

GM-Carson said...

Washington is the only winless team in the Majors. Here's to hoping the Phils can keep it that way.

I'm pretty sure Mayor Street smoked crack too

GM-Carson said...

I'm rooting for Howard to commit a "Howard" today. It's strange looking at our tally with him not on there.

Jay Ballz said...

You could always change "The Howard" to grounding into three double plays in one game. Then he'd be right up there as the poster boy.

Chris said...

Yea who woulda thought we actually would have preferred some K's by Howard during that game?

Mike said...

Harry Kalas has been rushed to the hospital after passing out. This is not good.

GM-Carson said...

I just heard the news on XM about Harry being rushed to the hospital after being found passed out. We can't lose him, I need him in the booth.

Chris said...

Harry has passed away per Todd Zolecki. I don't even know how to react right now. I feel like I am having a panic attack.

Joanne said...

Oh, Harry. RIP.

GM-Carson said...

I'm crying, that's how I'm reacting. I can't believe this happened.

Joanne said...

Me too, Carson. I'm watching CSN and Leslie and Ricky are holding up ...sort of...if anyone is interested.

This is sickening.
