La Salle Students Celebrated at 20th and Olney Last Night

I love this girl who mocked Ole Miss criminal Marshall Henderon’s annoying shark-head thing. 80 bucks says that kid’s in jail again within the next five years.

La Salle students took to the streets after Tyrone Garland’s Southwest Philly Floater™ (shout-out to Ty’s cousin Bern, and his mom, too!) sent the Explorers into new territory known as the Sweet 16 last night. Judging by the pictures and videos, the party seemed mostly tame– more drunken celebration than riot

Plenty of pictures and videos, of both La Salle students and the team, are after the jump. This is easily the greatest thing to happen to 20th and Olney since David Murphy graced La Salle with his presence and tuition dollars. But somewhere, Penn State students feel that not enough buses were overturned.

Float yourself over the jump, will you.

Tyrone Garland Sends La Salle to Sweet 16 with “Southwest Philly Floater”

Kyle Scott - March 24, 2013

In some circles, this means a dead body in Cobbs Creek Park. But not to Tyrone Garland, [UPDATE:] who would like to remind you that that shoutout goes to his cousin Bern, not Vern:

Congrats to the La Salle folks… at least one team in the city didn't choke down the stretch.

Jon Garland is a Whiny Bitch

Kyle - June 6, 2010


After tonight's game at the Bank, Jon Garland had this to say about CBP:

"This ballpark is a joke, in my eyes. But it's something you have to deal with. There are good ballparks,     and bad ballparks…hitters love it here, and pitchers hate it. As long as this ballpark stands, it's going to     be like that."

Does anyone hear that? I think its the world's smallest violin.

I was at the game tonight, and I'll be the first to admit that I didn't think Werth's homer that gave the Phils a 6-2 lead was going to float out. Scott Hairston looked up in disgust when the ball dropped into the first row in right center. But a pitcher with a career 4.34 ERA shouldn't blame his mishaps on the ballpark and has little room to talk.

How about when the Phillies travel to San Diego later in the year they blame every warning track fly ball on the size of the ballpark? That place is huge, and definitely plays into Garland's sub-3.00 ERA.

What a whiny bitch.
