Did you have a good weekend? Probably. You didn’t have to watch the Eagles embarrass themselves (and the city)… they got that out of the way on Thursday. As such, I was able to indulge in my new favorite pastime– morning drinking. Nothing like a few Franziskaners and EPL soccer to get a weekend day started off on the right foot (cue angry, soccer-hating comments).
Yesterday, Everton fans booed the Stoke goaltender while he being carried out on a stretcher. He was knocked out, briefly, then regained consciousness, played for another minute and collapsed. There was a short-lived he might be dead moment, but that didn’t stop the Brits from booing the delay. And they say that sort of thing only happens in Philly…
A couple of quick notes:
- Sports movie quizzo this Thursday at Drinker’s Tavern (2nd and Market). 8 PM. I’m hosting, you’re playing. Look for more details soon.
