How the hell are you going to have burning, white hot hate for the Cubs?
THAT’S LIKE HATING A KICKED AROUND, ABUSED PUPPY. We don’t do SHIT. We just play the game and god willing, we’ll win somehow.
The Royals, Astros—all the same thing. Astros are in the damn NL Central (well not for long) and I STILL don’t hate them. I can’t, that’s horrible, they do nothing. THEY DO NOTHING! HALF THE TEAM WAS THE GODDAMN PHILLIES FARM SYSTEM, HOW CAN I HATE THEM?
It just cracks me up sometimes with “EW I HATE THEM SO MUCH” and I’m sitting here like “…Is there a reason?” I mean, unless you’re in our division, fine, that’s understandable, that’s a rivalry. But anything else I’m just…lost. We’re not a threat. We’re just…There.
How anyone can hate the Cubs/Astros/Royals is beyond me. They are basically farm systems that are trying to find the right combination of players. Hate the Yankees. Hate the Giants. Hell, hate the Phillies for having the money to go out there and get fantastic players. Don’t pick on the skinny nerds who have excessive acne and play the oboe in marching band.
Jesus Christ Chicago, I knew you were a shithole, but I thought you had at least a little class.
How the hell did McKayla Maroney get a single deduction on this vault?
…wait whats the joke?
have you ever read oedipus rex? its a greek tradgedy.
He was the FIRST motherfucker.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHGUDHACFarfsfgjsdkf literature jokes high 5
I approve of this literary nerd. WELL PLAYED.
LIT NERDS UNITE.
i was just watching the men’s synchro when my dad walked in
he looked at the tv and saw:
and then he looked back at me, then looked back at the tv and saw:
then me again, and then to the tv one last time:
then he just walked away without saying anything
well that was really awkward
- Me watching the Olympics at age 8: Oh that's nice
- Me watching the Olympics at age 12: Wow I hope we win
- Me watching the Olympics at age 16: I'm going to fuck the entire swim team and no one can stop me
I just don’t understand how you can go one day from saying “I love him so much. I don’t know what I’d do without him. I wouldn’t survive if we broke up” to the next day just casually telling me “So, I hooked up with a 39 year old guy. He’s so hot. Don’t tell [boyfriend].”
It boggles my mind.
If I see any hate for Dom because he’s not Vic or Hunter I’m going to turn into the Hulk and smash you all to death.
My dad just called me and said we’re looking to get Soriano from the Cubs in the next 45 minutes. Hopefully this happens, and hopefully we get rid of a certain somebody. *cough* Raburn *cough*
LOL y’all can have him.
baldmarlin replied to your post:Ryan Dempster is on the block and I don’t know if I can handle him being traded away. I can deal with Reed Johnson and Geo. I can deal with Matt Garza if he goes, too. But Dempster? My Ginger Darling? Trying not the panic, trying to just wait and see.
Soriano just needs to go away. Put Campana in instead of keeping him on the bench. I’d be ok with a DeJesus/LaHair/Campana outfield. UGH I just hate the trade deadline. 2 hours 20 minutes left of this.
Oh boy, I probably shouldn’t tell you people were throwing LaHair’s name around for trading, right?
NO. NO. NO. I refuse to believe in that rumor just like I refuse to believe Ryan Dempster would approve a trade to the Yankees. I hate the trade deadline so much. Just make it stop.
FacePalm: The Philadelphia Phillies 2012 Video Yearbook.
Okay Shane was never my favorite player (and god knows he pissed me off a lot this season) but it still sucks to see him go because he was with the era of Phillies that I absolutely fell in love with. I hate seeing any member of the ‘08 team go. I’ll never forget that grandslam off of CC in the ‘08 NLDS. After that I said we were gonna win the WS and it happened so I have you to thank for giving me the ultimate hope then. Good luck in LA. (I’ll still be seeing you because I watch the Dodgers because I’m a horrible Phillies fan.)
Hunter, well I’m pissed we gave up so much for only a year of you when we didn’t really need you but that’s not your fault. I’m glad we gave you a taste of what winning is like. You’re a good dude and I wish you the best of luck in San Fran (ugh).
Phillies High won’t be the same without you two :(
OH GOD I forgot about Phillies High. Who will Cliff Lee chew his gum at now?
Erik Cole: Carolina Hurricanes (traded to Montreal Canadiens)
Geovany Soto: Chicago Cubs (Traded to Texas Rangers)
Tyler Colvin: Chicago Cubs (Traded to Colorado Rockies)
Chase Utley: Philadelphia Phillies
Claude Giroux: Philadelphia Flyers
Aaaaaaand now I’m un-saving the Hunter Pence tag. I love the guy, I do, but I cannot stand Pence FanGirls weeping over him saying he’s the bestest ever. Or Giants fans.
Bye, Hunter. I’ll miss your high socks. Goofy looking spazzes are my type, but I’ll take someone better at defense.
Still awake because I have to undo a tangle of yarn and make it into a ball. The things I do so that I can have a homemade scarf.
Update: I just found the scarf I’ve been working on for about 2 years now with DePaul colors for my cousin. Whoops. Guess I should finish that one first.
Remember that night on Twitter when Cliff Lee came back? Man, that was a fun night.
And then ESPN made a point of only showing Brett Favre retirement news.
- Geovany Soto to the Texas Rangers
- Reed Johnson and Paul Maholm to the Atlanta Braves

I was only gone from Thursday to Sunday and I stayed on the east coast the entire time, but I am so goddamn tired and so glad to be home. I love the traveling aspect of this job, I really do, but it wears me out. I’m telling my boss that I refuse to fly anywhere from now on. I’ll go to Chicago in September, but only if I can ride alone in the van or tire truck. Or just go ahead and teach me how to drive them myself.
New Hampshire was fun. We stayed in a hotel in Concord (kept calling it “con-cord” instead of the NE version of “conquered”, but whatevs) and drove to and from the track every day. Friday rained out so the girls and I (3 of us) drove to Portsmouth, NH and walked around the cute little town. Saturday was a full day and the 2 margaritas afterwards was wonderful. Sunday was rained out again, so we just packed up and drove to the airport 4 hours ahead of schedule.
Plane took off 10 minutes late, but we arrived 10 minutes early. So, there’s a plus. Walked out into the muggy Charlotte evening and that was the best “welcome home” I could ever get.
Also, Y’ALL. I work with a bunch of cuties. This is the best.
- Me: Fuck you, oh. Fuck. You.
- Me: What the fuck are you doing. What. The fuck. Are you doing.
- Me: NICE BLINKER ASSHOLE.
- Me: Good luck in the slow lane there, bud.
- Me: Why the FUCK are we not even going to speed limit. Why.
- Me: Lolol your car's a piece of shit.
- Me: If I miss that green light because of you...
- Me: You're gonna cut me off? You better hope you have a damn good accelerator, bitch.
- Me: I AM GOING TEN MILES PER HOUR OVER THE SPEED LIMIT WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT
- Me: Shit is that a cop? No.
- Me: Shit THAT is a cop.
- Me: Nope, roof rack.
