    Hahah I was actually going to in my rays bashing post. It was originally supposed to be an analysis/prediction thread, I already penciled in a game 3 loss. I just couldn't bring myself to discuss any possibility of the Rays winning so I abandoned that plan. The Phillies have some good lefties though, Ortiz kinda killed them in that regard. The rays pitchers aren't too scary, not even Garza with some decent lefties.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Garza looked agitated the whole night. Apparently, he is a rather high-strung guy, and the rain delay affected his comfort level. Moyer doesn't have Garza's stuff, but he is a consummate pro. Did you see how many times the Rays' batters had to call for time because the pitch was almost on its way? Working fast like that is a great way to keep batters off-balance. Just good veteran stuff there.

    Joe Blanton just hit a home run. Sweet Jesus. The Phillies are doing it. They're really, really doing it.

    We are on the verge of being the World Champions. Absolutely unreal.

    It really is. It's so ingrained in me that we lose that it seems otherworldly and surreal, like I'm not actually seeing it. Part of that is that it's the Rays instead of a traditional team, and part of it is the very strange kind of vibe this series has. But part of it is just "we're not supposed to win". I really have no idea how I'll react IF (I'm not tempting fate!) we win.

    Have a great time tomorrow...I have a feeling it might be one of the best nights of you life

    Hopefully Philadelphia fans don't become as annoying as Boston fans, if the Phillies win. And I'm talking about all major sports.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I doubt it. We don't define ourselves by rivalries or by losing. We define ourselves by being complete and total nutcases. Watch the news late tonight and tomorrow morning.

    Nah. We'll be jerks for about three days and then go back to bitching about the Eagles like this whole thing never happened In Philly, the Eagles are Gladys Knight and the other sports are all the Pips. You never have to worry about us unless the Eagles win the Super Bowl.
