Phils land Cliff Lee

29 July 2009 - 02:13 PM

The Phillies have acquired Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco for prospects Jason Knapp, Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald and Lou Marson.

This has to make the Phils the favorite in the NL.

Local players drafted

27 June 2009 - 02:44 PM

A few kids I played against last year got drafted. Today, Alex Velischek got drafted by Pittsburgh and Eric Knodel got drafted by Toronto. Velischek played for Delbarton Prep and the NJ Colonials 18U AAA. I'm not sure where Knodel went to high school but he played for the Philadelphia Junior Flyers 18U AAA. Yesterday, one of the Ducks first round picks, Kyle Palmieri (26th overall) is a NJ kid. He went to St. Peters Prep and played for the USA Hockey National Team Developmental Program. It's cool to see kids you played against getting drafted into the NHL and it proves that New Jersey youth hockey can compete with youth hockey in the entire country.

Top 10 Most Hated Professional Athletes

20 May 2009 - 04:44 PM

They were talking about this on the radio today (Phillies are the only team playing around here). I really enjoyed it.


Heres my list...


1. Jose Reyes: Cocky, arrogant...and the fact hes good makes me hate him more.

2. Tony Romo: Everyone talks about how great he is, but he is so overated. Plus he banged Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson. And that damn smile

3. Scott Gomez: Greedy bastard.

4. Sean Avery: I'm not going to even bother with a reason. He's not worth it.

5. Manny: Same reasons as Jose Reyes. Atleast he's funny though. And hasn't been caught taking steroids. Oh wait. Well atleast he took a nice manly steroid.

6. Michael Vick: So much RUNNING (not throwing) talent gone to waste. He is a douchebag to the fans and not to mention a Dog murderer.

7. Jerry Jones: Ugh. I hate the cowboys. I HATE the cowboys.

8. Michael Wilboun/Tony Kornhaiser: I hate PTI with a burning passion. Theses douchebags no nothing about hockey, nothing about sports for that matter, but jerk off Crosby and Ovechkin so much.

9. Barry Bonds: It's not so much the fact he took steroids, but the fact he is such an @$$.

10. Henrik Lundqvist: If I hear one more Ranger fan talk about how "King Henrik" is "the best goalie in the NHL" I am going to throw up. He is terrible. He is awful. So overated.


Dishonorable Mention:
Eric Staal: He is very good, but god damn he is a Devil killer.
Crosby: He's not on the list because hate him or not, he is a great player and has brought alot of new fans to hockey.

Doc

I was on youtube last night watching some Devils clips (I felt I needed a solid cry), and I got to thinking what the best Doc Emrick calls/sayings are.


I don't get the Devils on TV so I usually only hear Doc on NBC, but my favorite saying is "OHH AND HIS STICK BETRAYS (or sometimes FAILS) HIM!"

On a Martin Broduer save: "OHHH HE DID THE FERRIS WHEEL!"... I love that one more because they used to play it when you walked into Continental.

Philly

What's up Guys?


I live in South Jersey, 5 minutes out of Philly. It's 100% Philly sports around me. I'm a big Eagles and Phillies fan, but a very passionate Devils fan as well. My buddy's uncle is Billy Guerin, so when I was about 4 or 5, just getting into hockey, I got to go to a game and than go into the locker room to meet the team. They were really cool and from that moment on I've been hooked. I was there when the Devils won it in '03, amazing experience. I would have to say that the most amazing game I was at was game 6 vs. Philly. I have never heard a stadium so loud then when Lemuiex scored in the 3rd.

It's kind of bittersweet living near Philly as a Devils fans. It's fun to hear Flyers fans complain and make excuses, but it sucks never being able to watch Devils games. I go to about 5 or 6 regular season games a year, but a whole bunch of playoff games. Next year I'm going to Rutgers so I'll probably go to a crap load of games. I hope to see some of you guys there.
