I'm still in disbelief after Tuesday morning's totally non-fishing news.
CLIFF LEE! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!
|Yes...it's OK to be afraid|
I'm not sure when the Phillies actually woke up and decided they were going to be a big spending franchise, but as a kid who really started to fall in love with sports around 1984-85 a few years after their Mike Schmidt/Steve Carlton led run of greatness - this is a total 180 degree turnaround to me. After all, the Phillies were the first major league baseball franchise to lose 10,000 games.
The Phillies teams I know are supposed to have el-cheapo players like Don Carman, Floyd Youmans, Bruce Ruffin, and Wally Ritchie toeing the rubber. Not four #1 pitchers with Cy Youngs and playoff MVPs on their resumes. I know championships are not won in free agency...but for at least for now it feels good to say...screw you Yankees.
By the way, I know this post totally alienates probably 75% of my readers that are not Phillies fans. Sorry. Drink your Haterade and come back again tomorrow. (BTW - If you are a Phils fan, and are not familiar with the blog "Zoo With Roy," go there now. K.C. & I've got some R2C2 & Phour Loko t-shirts on order.)
That out of the way, I bring you the rest of the nibbles, in video form.
1. Some Gear - Echo Rod Break Test - 'cuz breaking other folks' rods is fun.
2. A Stupid Video - Don't Bother Me When I'm Watching TV...
3. And to close, a fishing song...
Enjoy. And see you in the World Series.
