Dude, I am sick of hearing about the Philadelphia Eagles problems. Their O-Line is too small, McNabb sucks, Andy Reid can't coach, Westbrook ain't big enough... the list goes on... (and on and on and on and on and on and you get the picture). I especially can't stand the Philadelphia sports writer who blow every single, little, solitary thing out of proportion. For example, when the Phillies had fired Larry Bowa and brought in Charlie Manuel, they were expecting championship first year that Charlie is in office. The finish third four games back, one out of the wild card. The chant from the sportswriters: "Fire Charlie". The next year: Phillies finish second, one back. half a game out of the wild card. Do you see where this is going? 2007: the Phillies clinch their Division (the National League Eastern Division aka NLE, NL East, etc.) on the last game of the year, but lose to the Rockies in the Division Series. The chant from the sportswriters of Philadelphia: "Oh... wait a minute! Maybe he [Charlie] is the guy." 2008: Phillies win their Division (again) on the second to last game of the regular season, beat the Brewers to clinch the Divisional Series; beat MAN-RAM and the LA Dodgers to clinch their first National League Pennant in over fifteen years. and finally, the conclusion of my rant: the Phillies head to their first World Series in over twenty-five some-odd years, and beat the Tampa Bay Rays, to clinch their first World Series title in over twenty years. The sportswriters reaction: "We're so sorry Charlie about all those nasty thing we've said about you over the years. Can you ever forgive us?"
If I was Charlie Manuel, and I just heard that reaction from the sports press: I'd tell them writers to go [expletive] off, you no-good [expletive] sons-of-a-[expletives].
Sorry about that... just had to get something off my chest about the sportswriters in my city.
So were was I... damn I forgot... oh well more next time...
