I didn’t intend to do this, but I figured that this game was too important not to do. If the Phillies win today (and take NOTHING for granted), then the parade will be Wednesday afternoon, but I’m not sure what time exactly.

On to the PBP. As with Games 1 and 2, this is going to cover all plays in the game as best as I can (plus a few extra tidbits), big plays boldified, and grammar be damned.

What a  game, huh?  If you wanna “relive” the magic, click for more. (more…)

…is not gonna be done by me. now, I know I said that about Game 2, and then went back on my word, but this time I mean it. I’ve got schedule conflicts, and definitely will not happen…maybe.

Scratch that. My plans have been canceled, and Game 3 play-by-play is BACK ON, if there is a game. See you then!

PREGAME

Rain delay. Till Death sucks. Rain, rain, go away.

EDIT: F*ck it. Game’s not gonna be on until 10, which means it won’t be over until 1:30 am. So, forget it. Sorry, folks.

EDIT II: If you wan’t commentary, as oppposed to pbp, join me at Back She Goes! in this thread.

Here we go again. I’m going to attempt to cover the game play-by-play, pitch-by-pitch as best I can. Brett Myers takes the mound tonight against James Shields, as the Phillies try to get a two game lead on the Tampa Bay Rays, and take it back home to Philly. Like yesterday, big plays are bolded, and grammar will be damned.

POLL!

PREGAME

Tim McCarver misses the opening speech, my guess is, he went to the can.

I’m going to try to do play-by-play for this whole, entire game. I’m gonna update it every inning, and boldify the important plays. Am I crazy? Probably, but, lets see how it goes.

EDIT: ho, boy. This was crazy-hard to do. Unless one of my faithful reader(s) wants to do it, there’s no way I’m gonna do this again. This is too long, so I’m putting it after the phold.

POST ONE: Today is a holiday

First, it’s the 28th anniversary of the last time time the Phillies won a Championship (1980, for those who can’t do math), but more importantly, it’s my birthday (Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…). This is the second World Series in my lifetime, but only the first that I remember. Hopefully, this one will end better…

POST TWO: J.D. Durbin has Been Released

WOOHOO!!! I hate this guy. I’ve seen him several times this year at both AAA Lehigh Valley, and AA Reading. He S-U-C-K-E-D. The first start that I saw him (one of his first starts), he gave up 6 runs in a third of an inning. Yes, that gives him an ERA of 18.00 for JUST THE ONE START! C’MON! I can do better!!

POST THREE: Pessimists Never Win

Since the beginning of the season, I said that the Philllies wouldn’t make the playoffs. I knew they’d be good, but I didn’t see them as a serious playoff threat, and that 2007 was a fluke. I felt this all the way through the year, even though the team proved me so very, very, very wrong so many, many, many times. Even when they were a lock for the playoffs, I kept saying they wouldn’t make it. And I held on to this. Until they made it. Then what did I do? I played the pessimist card again. I said that I would be surprised if they could win one game against the power-heavy Brewers. How wrong I was. They then made it in 4, and what did I say this time? Manny and the Dodgers were gonna take the Phillies in 5 or 6, and lose to the Sox in the WS. That’s so wrong, it’s laughable. but now what am I doing? I’m jumping back on the Phillies bandwagon and saying Phillies in 7!! Although, following my current trends (NERD), I probably shouldn’t predict stuff. I’m 0-life in this postseason. Ahh, the heck with it. GO PHILLIES!!

POST FOUR: Why The World Series Has Convinced Me To Vote (if i could) For Obama

Throughout this whole “political season”, I couldn’t decide who to vote for. I generally didn’t agree with McCain (and I REALLY don’t like Palin), but I didn’t think Obama had enough experience. He’s too young, and hasn’t been in the Senate for too long (I believe). I thought the same thing of the Devil Rays this fall when they made the playoffs. What have they done? They advanced past two pairs of Sox (baaaad pun), and are in their first ever World Series. They have a serious chance of winning the championship, despite all the inexperience up and down the roster. If the Rays can make the World Series, why can’t Obama win? Forget what Curt Schilling or anyone else tells you, Obama is the way to go.
