Seriously, I'm done

Everyone has been talking about this Mets series like this: if the Phillies don't win at least 2 games, they have no hope for doing anything successful this season. I couldn't really find a way to believe that before it started, but now the inevitable has happened, and I'm changing my feelings about this team. They're not mediocre. They are bad. They're not awful, or horrible, or garbage, but they're bad. Uninspired, clearly unknowledgeable (reference Jimmy Rollins stealing with Wagner on the mound, one out, and Utley at bat), unlovable, and now unwatchable. We're at the same point we were at last year when I stopped caring, and started watching...well, nothing. Training camp is soon.

8 games in a row, I gotta say it feels pretty good.

I hear Hal is moving to Africa to escape from the wrath of the NY Mets.

the deadly legacy of the mets is a disease that runs rampant throughout the world.

F the Mets. The Phils had been good at carrying fans until training camp, but this year they're two months short. They have nothing. They don't play the right way. Blow up the team and keep only Rowand, Utley, Howard, and Myers.

For the record, Hal is moving to Africa because someone has to save the monkeys.

Armando said...

I think Hal isn't actually moving to Africa, I think he's being sent there because he IS a monkey.

x-intern said...

Hal is only going to Africa to PRETEND to care about monkeys. He is really on a secret scouting mission to find the next Dikembe Mutumbo. Not so that the Sixers can florish, but because he needs more material for his columns.

You know why I'm mad at the Phillies right now? Okay, actually just atBrett Myers. That's totally unacceptable.

Armando said...

if you needed spouse abuse to be added to the list of reasons to hate the phillies in order to dislike them, you might not have been watching them play

HB said...

caught me! I never watch them play. I only read this blog a) because I'm from Philly and b) because you kids crack me up.

Armando said...

well in that case, you're doin good.
