Your Monday Morning Roundup

Couple of quick notes

– The winner of this week's Drinker's Philadelphia CB Six Pack challenge is… Keith1989. Keith, drop me a line with your email address so we can get you a gift card to Drinkers.

– Our second Phillies tailgate is Saturday. $10 all you can eat and drink. More details here.

– Earlier in the day on Saturday, Cole Hamels and Pete Rose will be signing autographs at BC Sports. Colbert from 10-12 in the Manoa Shopping Center (he's scheduled to pitch, so this might change) and Rose from 2-4 at the Christiana Mall. Get tickets right here.

$1 hot dogs during all Phils games and $1 Rolling Rock ponies all day, every day at Drinker's Philadelphia? Yes and please. I highly recommend the Tex-Mex Dog, wrapped in bacon and cheddar and topped with pico de gallo and guacamole. Reals.


I took a premature bite…

– I'll be on CSNPhilly's Lunch Break with Rhea Hughes today at 12:30. You can watch it right… hither.

The roundup:

– Bryz could sign as early as tomorrow. Dave Isaac breaks down what Paul Holmgren needs to do to squeeze Bryz under the salary cap.

– Bill Lyon, legend, talks about Madson's brilliance.

Kenny Chesney rocked a Phillies shirt and Andy Reid hopped on stage with the country star.

- Osi Umenyiora responded to LeSean McCoy. He called him Lady Gaga. Oh yes.

Bryzgalov and Michael Stutes joined Twitter… and it's awesome.

– Since this was posted late on Friday, we're going to pimp it out a couple of times- Illadictionary, defining the types of Phillies games. A sampling, if you will:

West Philly Gang Bang: Everything looks fine. Sure it’s late and you have a heightened sense of awareness, but you don’t really expect anything bad to happen. Then, just as quickly as it started, it ends. An inconspicuous car rolling down a quiet neighborhood street drops its windows… and BOOM, Raheem is dead on the ground next to you. This isn’t a simple go-ahead home run from an aging fringe player, this is epic. Examples: Juan Uribe’s home run off Ryan Madson in Game 6 of the NLCS last year, Johnny Damon's heroics in Game 4 of the 2009 World Series. Older examples: Jeff Conine (2003-2005), Craig Biggio, September 7th, 2005. Similar to: Center City Rapist.

The 6 ABC Boscov's Thanksgiving Day Parade Game: It’s not really a good game. They’re losing. But you watch. You watch the whole fucking thing, not because it was particularly enjoyable, but because you feel it’s your duty as a Philadelphian. David Boreanaz may or may not be present.


– Gonzo says the Sixers' potential buyers should try to emulate Cuban. That works for me.

– Chooch 2 is back with the Union.

  1. Yo, Kyle! As someone who lives in West Philly, your description was dead on right, my brother! Word! Shame about Raheem though. By the by, try no to drool when you’re with Rhea. That’s not manly! Oh, as for Andy, I would’ve been more impressed if he hopped onstage at a Rhianna show. Know what I’m sayin’?
