Thoughts on Plaxico

plaxico.jpgI root for the New York Football Giants and as such I've been doing some thinking about the recent Plaxico Burress situation.  If you don't know, Burress is the star wide receiver who shot himself in the leg while at a club when the gun slipped from the waistband of his sweatpants.  Obviously, he's a total genius.  Absolulute Class A intellect, I mean, it's not like he mak

It’s Phinally Sunny in Philadelphia

phanatic1.jpgSo the Phillies just won their first World Series title since 1980, giving the city of Philadelphia its first championship since 1983.  Whoop-de-doo.  After a rain-suspended game picked up in the bottom of the sixth with the score tied and momentum seemingly up for grabs, the Phillies won a game that had begun forty-eight hours earlier.  Even though 100% of my Phillie fan friends felt that they would choke because of this turn of events, the Phillies won the game and with it the World Series.  This is pretty typical Phila-fan thinking, but we'll get to that a little later on.  For now, much as it might pain me, all due praise should be given to the Phillies, they won fair and mostly square, and deserve their moment in the sun.  It's really a very inspirational story.  I mean, just look at what they accomplished with only two league MVP's and a closer who never blows saves.  It's really a testament to the power of hope.
