Maikel Franco hit his first career home run as the Phillies won their fifth straight. In fact, they’re almost not in last in the division now. Almost.
Union fans, upset with the state of the team, held a pre-game protest. Why didn’t Phillies fans think of that?
Former Temple standout and onetime (briefly) Eagle Adrian Robinson passed away at age 25.
Because the quarterback talk will never stop, the latest rumor includes E.J. Manuel being traded to the Eagles.
The most borning thing in all of sports is a baseball rain delay. The Phillies and Diamondbacks’ Twitter accounts somehow made it more boring.
Reader (@jaredlyon_j) got to line up against Rudy:
Jim Cramer threw out the first pitch at the Phillies game on Friday and, well, his arm’s not so good, but his enthusiasm for general existence continues to be unmatched.
Todd Fedoruk visited Amtrak victims in the hospital. Maybe if the Flyers hadn’t overpaid so many players over the years they’d be able to find a better player in need of an Ambassadorship to do this kind of thing.
Guys walking around Cuba wearing Donovan McNabb jerseys aren’t nearly as cool as third-world kids thinking the Sixers shocked the world in 2001.
“That definitely was a great feeling, and that feeling is still there. We definitely have a lot of opportunities to play against the Philadelphia Eagles, and not only that team,” Jackson said. “Any time I play against any opponent, that’s the role I take on. I like to be the guy that goes out there and punishes any team that I play against.”

I wonder if jockey Victor Espinoza whipped American Pharoah 32 times in the preakness like he did in the Derby?
Piece of shit jockey Victor Espinoza whipped Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah thirty two times down the stretch of his win earlier this month. The horse was examined by 12 state-approved veterinarians after concerns were raised over the frequency with which he was hit.
“From a tactical standpoint, Espinoza did what he thought necessary to get American Pharoah home and that is his job,” wrote Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer. But “it looks bad when a rider keeps after a horse,” Darrell Haire, regional director of the Jockey’s Guild, told reporters.
Couldn’t agree more. The mongrels that talk about “oh the horse just loves to race.” F that. The horse is running because he’s a horse and because there’s a tiny man on his back hitting him with a stick. Somehow as a society we’ve accepted this. [Bonus curiosity: There are entire movements over the proliferation of concussions in football and hockey, and yet, UFC is a thing. I don’t care, either. Just saying– we have this weird ability to compartmentalize stuff like this.]
AI says Steph Curry has a better handle than he had. Agreed. Curry is not real. And now that the Clippers pooped in their bed, we’ll be seeing Curry for two more series.
