Hater. I know it's hard, but deal with it.

33 HR's and 113 RBI vs the Mutts. And then there was this in 2007, the game that sent the Mutts into a choking tailspin. Chase Utley against Billy Wagner? Mismatch. GGGAAAGGG!!!

Phan52 clearly displays the well known fact that the best moments in the lives of Phillies fans are the failures of superior franchises. 

Superior franchise? The Mutts? I laughed. Out loud. At least the league hasn't threatened to take control of the Phillies from their owner any time lately like they did with that scumbag Wilpon.

This is a lot of fun to watch. On one hand, you have the losingest (word I just made up) franchise in ... the history of sports? On the other hand, a team that's been a complete laughingstock for nearly their entire existence. 

I think I have to give the ignominious crown to the Phillies. Founded in 1883 and they only have two World Series. Yowzers.

But I am not the delusional one. I am well aware of the failings of the Phillies. But in the most recent period when they were both good the Phillies bitch smacked the Mutts, particularly Chase Utley. They actually call the right field fence in Citi Field Utley's Corner, and the name given by the Mutts' own announcers. 

I wish I could show you the classic Conan O'Brien video where the Phillie Phanatic bangs Mrs. Met but it got taken down because of copyright infringement.

Yup.  Philly fans love the type of slime that plays hard every play of every game no matter what the score or the team's record...The type of slime who is wiling to step into a pitch or lay down a sac bunt to help the team win and has the most beautiful short and compact swing designed to hit line drives in the gap instead of swinging for the fences all the time (unless Mets pitchers decide to serve up the homers to him of course).  He does all this without complaining, talking trash, flipping bats, arguing with umpires, and general hot dogging that Mets fans love to see from their current and former players like Cespedes and Reyes.  Utley sounds exactly like type of slime that Philly fans love.

That's baseball, right?

The sport for those that need something to watch to get them through until football season...

:-D

Football? Is that  the game where every 40 seconds of clock time there's a 6 second play run? The sport with less regular season games on the schedule than a hockey preseason? 

Football? Is that the sport where there's no contact allowed between the sidelines, the sport that frowns upon celebration of a score. The sport with 32 franchises but only 17 professional QB' s on the continent?

I'm getting the sense you don't like football...

I just find it incredibly amusing to watch fans of the second and fourth place teams bashing one another. :banana:

Only a matter of time before Papelbon does his magic again and fractures the Nats.

It'll be an interesting year, for sure.  Pap hasn't quite been lights out, but he hasn't blown a lot of saves either. I just hope that everyone on the team besides Daniel Murphy starts hitting closer to their long term averages.  Oh, have I thanked the Met's yet today?

Obviously you're not a Mets fan. We reside between 2nd and 4th annually

In all fairness to Papelbon.  If I had to play with that whiny little baby Bryce Harper then I would want to choke him out in the dugout too

    • Hoping there are a few people here who are using Game Golf Live, and can advise, as I was getting well frustrated on the course yesterday.  I am still fairly new to using Game Golf, got it gifted 6 months ago, but only now been playing with it Anyway, on the course yesterday, just could not get it to work stable.  Switched on the Game GPS Unit, it started flashing, then bleeped, white light flashing then paired it with the game golf app on the phone.  It showed my location, so thought off we go .... tag'd my first club the GPS Puck, flashed and vibrated, briefly saw the app show 1 shot, before it went back to 0 ..... took my shot anyway, go to the next shot, again, showed my location, tag'd my club, again same vibrate .. but still no register showing on the phone.  Checked the GPS unit, their seemed to be no lights on, however, it was still registering my location At this point, I ended the round, quit the app, switched off the puck, and then tried to reconnect it all again .... it seemed to go through the same as above ... at this point, got annoyed and switched it off for the round, as it was to distracting So, just wondered, what process / order do people use to get their Game Golf connected correctly.  Do you switch on the puck first, the app .. .what order is this done in
    • So, yesterday I played my par-3s in even, par-5s in one under, and averaged 4.5 on par-4s ... and no sixes.  Anywhere.  Or worse.  First time I've done that. Check it out, my scorecard from yesterday (Nov 16, 2019). f   This was from the blue tees at Encino golf course in L.A..  The second line is where I put notes for later:  G (GIR) or N (near-GIR).  I on occasion make other notations (S: I hit sand, A: got to the green as planned but not in either category;  F: messed up the hole)  I don't do this during tournaments of course.  Just saying it here because it's in the picture. In case the challenge has any such restrictions, I played blue tees which are 70.1 / 114 / 6574 yards.  No mulligans, played with friends in a skins/modified fourball type casual round.  I did accept a few very short conceded putts (none over about a foot).  I believe it qualifies for the challenge.   And I was fully aware of where I stood, score-wise and challenge wise, when I hit my second shot at #16.  So I played the last 11 strokes knowing I had a good round going and a chance to finish the "no sixes" challenge, with a par-5 waiting for me at the end.  I hit a good drive, a great 4-wood, and pitched on from 75 yards with a 9-iron (half swing).  Almost made the putt for a 75 too   76 beats my previous best score of all time by one (that 77 had two sixes on it... but also three birdies).  I get the feeling I'll have a bunch more good scores if I can produce more "no sixes" scorecards  
    • Day 9.  Hit balls for ten minutes indoors, off a mat, into a net.  6-iron.  Focused on completing the backswing.  Balls were plastic.
    • My best shot of the week was hitting a 240yd drive on a par 5 hole twice! No winter roll, no downhill/wind, no cartpath. Just hit it perfectly with a slight draw to the middle of the fairway - ended up with a birdie on that hole both times!
