"Lidge looks in for the sign...the 1-2 pitch...FASTBALL, FLY BALL HIT TO CENTER FIELD, VICTORINO IS UNDER IT...HE SQUEEZES IT AND MAKES THE CATCH! THE WINNERS OF THE 2009 LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES AND STILL THE NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES!!!"
Okay...who's next? A-R*id, Derek Jeter, and The Best Team Money Can Buy, The George Steinbrenner Still In Charge Even Though He's Not Really Doing So New York Yankees? (Oh, the dilemma of having to root against Keith's team.) Or the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Orange County California USA Western Hemisphere Third Rock From The Sun Milky Way Crab Nebula? That will be decided as early as tonight (10/22) in Angel Stadium or no later than Sunday (10/25) should the series go the full metal jacket seven games. And man, Fox and the NFL look like fricking geniuses now. Swapping out Minnesota-Green Bay Judas Bowl II and Giants-Eagles in their time slots (1 PM and 4:15 PM) . BRILLIANT! Of course, I won't be watching the latter for obvious reasons. For Pirate Rupert's sports division, this could be the biggest ratings bonanza since acquiring MLB in 1996 and the NFL two years earlier.
I digress though, as Jayson Werth (as I said at the Fire Andy Reid Now live blog "He's due") hit two home runs, Pedro "Pete Happy: Good field, no hit" Feliz and Shane-O Vic added homers of their own and the Dodgers were dead after that, 10-4. See you at FARN next Wednesday (10/28)!
