I don’t think I can top the drama or the excitement of the 189,000 dollar bar tab post, so we’ll just shuffle through some official business and be on our way. A bit of a letdown in sports this weekend after we had the Flyers on life support, the Kentucky Derby, and other things working last week. This time around? Well, the Phillies have a pretty big series in Atlanta. Will Blanton pitch? What is this rotation going to look like for the next few weeks? Also, be sure to check out the crowd in Atlanta. Will the Bravos draw for this one? The Phils pulled in about 15,000 (reported) down in Florida for that 1st vs. 2nd place duel. Hopefully Atlanta can do a little better than that. Attendance down a bit all over the league, but we don’t feel that here in Philly. We sell out the stadium, panic and bitch about the team. It’s the new death and taxes.
MLB Underdog of the Day: Yesterday’s Result: Winner! Financial Status: ($-610)
Hosmer. Called it. Another home run, and the Royals trounced the Yankees. Oh, Happy Day. OH! Happy day. I have a feeling if you have been riding the Royals all year, you might find yourself up a decent chunk of change right now. They’re still not getting a ton of respect, especially with Bruce Chen on the shelf.
Today’s Selection: Chicago (+105) over Oakland.
Had to go with a small number and the streaking Phil Humber. Sounds like Hosmer.
Quiz of the Day: The 1996 Chicago Bulls. Category: That’s not Will Perdue. My Score: 11/19.
Everyone have a good one. Remember to tip your bartenders (above and beyond the automatic 20%), and be responsible out there folks. See you Monday.
