Sporting Report




It is Opening Day here in Philadelphia and spirits and confidence are extremely high for our Phillies.We have what could likely be the best pitching staff ever assembled.Yes we have injuries to Chase Utley and Lidge and Polanco...so there are some question marks. Nevertheless, opposing players will have a hard time in the batter's box this season.
On another sporting note, my Welterweight takes to the ring this evening for a 6 round tilt against Mike Demby. About 20 of the guys will be attending...including D.M. (who writes the splendid blog Brohammas) Bro is a transplanted Utah guy living here in Philly. I was supposed to meet him and Tintin of Trad fame a few months ago when they planned a meeting but work got in the way. I am looking forward to meeting him tonite. I hope he wears flame retardant clothes!
Lastly, my son scored 2 goals in the opening game of his Middle School's Lacrosse season. The photo above is not him...but it is nearly excatly how the shot looked on the second goal in form and action. He actually came damn close to a Hat-trick but could not find the handle in the crease on the 3rd. My head almost exploded with pride as I attended the game and was standing on the sidelines.
Here's hoping JMW's Kentucky team does well this weekend in NCAA action...she writes " A Place to Dwell" and I am very fond of her Blog and her perspective.

MLS, you are a super-cool guy. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face. Ditto on your blog, my friend! Cheers to your son on his goals - I so hope my kids want to take up LAX when they're old enough. And one more thing...GO CATS!!! :)

Great win for the Phils yesterday. I have a feeling they are going to go down to the wire with the Braves all year...NL East is TOUGH this year.

Three cheers for Opening Day! My team is the defending AL Champs and the Ballpark was simply electric on Friday. Nothing better than an Opening Day game.

Now, about that Cliff Lee trade.....

You are a fine host and have a great group of guys you hang around with.

Your fighter was skilled at both fighting and acting, and was surprisingly charming.

My wife had a great time as well.
Happy Birthday

Well if the Brewers can't pull it off, then Go Phils!

Raulston, Around here we just say " Penn"...
And that form of "P" can only stand for the Phillies. Thanks for your comment as well...keep up the good work on your site.

Sorry I forgot "Main Line" you are from the area hence the name. Most of the people I talk to back home need me to differentiate between P. State and Penn. As a new Penn student I have been following your blog as an aid to help me navigate the city from a seasoned Gent's perspective. Thank for all your local references.
