Phall Phancy

Tennyson famously wrote that, “In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” But as summer draws to a close now that Labor Day is behind us, what do we think about? The answer is two things: Baseball playoffs and the start of the NFL season. As a lifelong fan of…

Sayonara Means Good-bye

I’m still bummed, so I’ll keep this short.  Great season.  Good playoff run and lost to a very good team that got more clutch pitching and better clutch pitching in this Series. Hideki Matsui (who had SIX RBIs tonight – holy crap — and who hit the cover off the ball all Series) and Andy…

That’s It! The World Serious!

Last night, the Halos error-ed their way out of the ALCS in a horrific 8th inning, letting the NY Yankees capture their 40th American League Pennant, defeating the Angels 4 games to 2.

What’s The Hawaiian Word For Pay-Back?

For a team that has the past two National League MVPs (Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard), it’s easy to miss a guy like Shane Victorino.  He’s 5’ 9” , small and scrappy – and is affectionately known as The Flyin’ Hawaiian.  And he’s been the Phillies MVP this post season – constantly getting big hit…
