it’s a celebration bitches

1 10 2007

wheres josh weinstien... he's out back on the patio drinking mimosas

celebrating the phillies in the playoffs with a bottle of champagne in seattle.

well, it’s 26 hours after the fact and i think i am finally able to sort out all of the emotions running through my head, gather my thoughts and get a post in. i basically have been reading phillies and mets blogs all day and this is the best stuff i could find.

1. as of september 12, the odds were 500-1 that the mets were going to make the playoffs.  i was listening to the end of the mets game in seattle before switching over for the final 3 outs in philly and it was music to my ears listening to the crowd at shea booing the hell out of jose reyes

2. hanley ramirez is a honorary sexy criminal for the month of october after this quote:

“I don’t care if [my hand] is broke. I’m gonna play tomorrow. Fuck everybody on the Mets. I’m going to kick their asses tomorrow.” 

you can probably throw miguel olivio in as an HSC as well for throwing bombs at reyes

”I missed,” Olivo said of his attempt to hit Reyes. “He lucky, too.”

3. i think dane cook is a fucking douche bag, and his commercials for the mlb playoffs have been pissing me off for a few months now.  however this one is pretty funny

4.a few of my favorite quotes from mets players/management over the past month:

“They’re dancing around the field now, but we’ll see what happens when the time comes.” -paul lo duca(aug 31)“I’ve been there many times and this all feels very normal to me, very much like what a pennant race should be.  My players are feeling it, too – and this will be a good experience for them.  When we sip a little champagne later on, it’ll be a little sweeter.” -willy randolph(sept 19)“Last I checked, we’re still in first place.” -david wright(sept 22)

5. great article on espn.com with 44 reasons why the mets blew it, here’s a few of my faves:

#5. Jose Reyes in April: .356/.442/.596, “Best player in baseball”; Jose Reyes in September: .214/.290/.348, “Hey, that’s how Rey Ordonez used to hit.”

#11. Staff ERA by month: April, 2.96; May, 3.73; June, 4.20; July, 4.50; August, 4.93; September, 5.14.

#18. Well, that 6-12 record against the Phillies sure didn’t help.

#34. Pat Burrell hit 19 homers with 60 RBIs in the second half.

#35. Jimmy Rollins played baseball while Jose Reyes sulked.

6. check out this photo of an unhappy mets fan…boo hoo

douche bag in training

at first you may be a little sad because he is a little kid, but when you realize he is going to grow up to be an adult mets fan (*read “obnoxious prick”) it’s actually quite humorous

7. love these pictures of philly sports anchor jade mccarthy getting doused with champagne in the phils locker room after the game.  i love jason bourns evil look in the second pic in juxtaposition to the third pic with his “it wasn’t me” look, and on to the 4th pic where he is all like “me and my homeboy roberson are gonna run train on you”

8. i can watch these last 3 outs over and over again

pat the bat once again shows his impressive speed, ensuring his place at the top of the teammate of the year ballots, to beat everyone out to the field (he seriously better watch it or else they are going to stop pinch running for him in games) to celebrate with brett myers and looks like he may be throwing out an hommage to the sexy crimes with his interpretation of the cole hamels dance

pat the bats version of the cole hamels dance

you can tell that in this photo he is a both confused and hurt that everyone is wasting so much booze

pat would rather have that booze going directly into his bloodstream

love this description from our boys at we should be gm’s of pat the bat during yesterday’s celebrations on the field

“After the final out, Burrell came sprinting out of the dugout with Bourn-like velocity. I couldn’t imagine him running that fast towards a group of males before yesterday.  Everybody is pouring champagne/beer on each other, yet Burrell is standing on the infield grass drinking it. That is why he’s my favorite player…”

i’m pretty sure that is why he is everyones favorite player… and finally this picture from clare of plunkchutley of the bat showing off the ass-et that took him to the top of the game

all those hours of squats in the gym really paid off

-gperih

ps. if the phils make it to the world series, i am coming to philly to watch it happen

pps. if the padres win tonite i am going to san diego for the weekend to watch them close them out… GO PADS
