Your Monday Morning Roundup

Roger Bernadina

Phillies baseball was fun to watch this weekend– walk-offs galore (going back to last week), an 18-inning stupid fest, and the mostly triumphant return of Roy Halladay and his 87 mph heater.

Also, I’m developing a duel man crush on Cody Asche and Darin Ruf. Asche is spectacularly fun to watch in the field [watch] and all Ruf has done at the Major League level is rake– in 184 career at-bats, he has 14 HR, 29 RBIs and a .935 OPS. To put that number in perspective, Ryan Howard hasn’t had a single season with an OPS over .935 since 2007. Ruf’s .904 OPS this season would put him just outside the top 10 in baseball. And yes, I know it’s a super small sample size from little more than a month of play… but he’s been really good.

Let’s hit it!

Jelly ass aside, I really like We Can’t Stop.

Justin Timberlake and ‘NSYNC (I think we’re at a point where it’s required that we distinguish those things) also performed at the VMAs and Xfinity Live! tweeted (and later deleted) the following:

Please… like there were three Asians at Xfinity Live! at the same time.

They followed up with the reckless – yet ballsy – our account was hacked excuse:

This concussion may end Kevin Kolb’s career.

John Kruk was taken from the Sunday Night Baseball booth in a stretcher.

The best longread of the week may be this New York Times piece on how ESPN basically owns college football. It’s extraordinarily in-depth and well-reported, but, at best, it glosses over the journalistic issue that ESPN’s coverage of the sport amounts to an informercial for partner schools and conferences.

The blondes of FOX Sports 1.

Hey here’s a surprise: the Kardashian-Odom union didn’t work out.

We’re probably going to bomb Syria this week.

  1. Guy loves to enjoy himself and every notice blacks love to J walk….. Hollis Tmomas will explode during the first bye week

  2. Miley’s vag has got to smell utterly terrible. If only that performance could have been Selena Gomez. Spank city with that chick….

  3. Newsflash: ANY union with ANY Kardashian is doomed to failure. the clock is already ticking on Kim and Jay-Z. As for Miley Cyrus, boy, she sure couldn’t wait to ditch her Hannah Montana personna and become Skankasaurus Rex! Are you kidding me?

    1. Did the Kardashians find Lamar Odom yet? Poor guy was driven to the crack pipe by that crazy ass family.

      P.S. I loved it when Kurt Cobain’s daughter took on one of the younger Kardashian girls on twitter because she has no social conscience and all she cares about is that her shoes match her dress or some shit.

      1. The wrong guy from Nirvana died. Kurt probably would have literally rubbed his own feces on a Kardashian at some televised event while Dave Grohl and his gayass band will probably do a spot with Kanye eventually.

        1. Kurt would have had a blast with the Kardashians for sure, and he was always content wearing jeans with holes and cardigans from Goodwill.

          1. Bleach and Incesticide were 2 very underrated Nirvana albums…very DIY punk attitude type grunge…good shit

  4. Also, I’m curious to see what Kyle Scott listens to…any punk rock type stuff? Bad Religion, Pennywise, NoFX?

    Some legit Philly bands by the way…Kid Dynamite, The Loved Ones, Paint It Black, The Wonder Years, Reign Supreme, etc…clearly stuff a lot of people are unfamiliar with, but talented as shit.
