What Would Buddy Do?
We just might have to burn this m*therf*cker down

burn it all downThis is going to get a lot more agitated/ anxious/ loco before it’s all over, isn’t it.

So the Mets and Phils do the simultaneity thing at 1 pm, which means for the first time in I can’t remember how many years, I will watch a sporting event OTHER THAN THE NFL during live NFL games. This should produce a solid three hours of anxiety for the entire Philadelphia region (and about a third of the New York region, sorry Mets fans)*. With any luck, the Phils and Marlins will cooperate with our collective inability to process stress and each score 11 runs in the first inning.

I find this scenario very doubtful. We’ll be watching to the final pitch on both games. (I’m in Jersey right now — fresh from Sweden! — and will have both games easily accessibly.) Ugh.

Put a bounty on Peter King!
Posted on September 28th, 2007 at 2:11 am by Cheesesteak Hoagie

before he lost the weightIn all honesty, I can’t believe it took me this long to get a bounty on Peter King.

I’m not gonna dog King for his increasingly played out and lame MMQB column (which used to be required reading but is now two years past its use-by date), his dweebishly mundane descriptions of commuting (yawn), or even the self-important patriotism of publishing the letters from the soldier in Iraq (yes yes, Peter, you’re doing a great thing for AMERICA here). Nope, I’m getting down on Peter King for being exactly the uptight white sportswriter that we thought he was.

That’s mos def a KILLSHOT
Posted on September 27th, 2007 at 4:45 pm by Cheesesteak Hoagie

Whilst we endeavour to discuss the Birds exclusively, we do have a special spot in our football hearts for the KILLSHOT, the play by which a defender ends a game by purposely injuring a quarterback.

The video that PFT posted of the Vince Wilfork hit on J.P. Losman is pretty damning. We hate to point fingers, but this sure looked like a KILLSHOT.

Two months later, Bracegate finally over
Posted on September 27th, 2007 at 7:43 am by Cheesesteak Hoagie

a braceless yellow DunavinAnd who said that the Bracegate line of questioning from this summer was just blathermonkey rubbish?

(Besides me, of course.)

Days after obliterating the Detroit Lions’ secondary and throwing (literally) a perfect game in a 56-21 win, Donovan McNabb admitted that yes, he had shed his pesky knee brace, and yes, he did feel better without it:

Good guys score many touchdowns, hurt bad guys’ feelings in awkwardly outfitted return to form

the view from SRO

Well that all worked out quite well!

In a game and atmosphere at the Linc that could have been absolutely toxic (and there was apparently a smattering of boos for McNabb during the introductions, but we were still walking into the stadium at that point and didn’t hear them), the Eagles got weird on the Lions and convinced every last one of us that thinks we know what’s going to happen in these games THAT WE HAVE NO IDEA AT ALL. NONE. I thought the spread was absurd when I saw it (I thought the Birds would struggle to win this game). I obviously have NO IDEA WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

I don’t want to take all the credit for the win, but this was my first trip to the Linc since January 2005. So it was either me or the hideous uniforms (and yes, I thought they were hideous, though they didn’t look terrible on the fans…the yellow and blue goes better with jeans than it did with those white pants) that powered the Eagles to victory yesterday. Or Donovan McNabb’s overwhelming desire for revenge against his many naysayers. One of those.
