death to hipsters

 Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
“Well isn’t this nice…”
And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

-Alanis Morissette

with the thrill of last nights game still still firmly entrenched in my head, i can’t help but look forward to the phillies upcoming world series (its going to be a looong week).  the first thing that comes to mind is what if the national league had been able to hold onto a lead and win that all-star game in nyc.  clearly home field has been a huge advantage for us all season, and the fact that it all comes down to that 14 inning marathon in the middle of july in new york seems so odd now that it actually affects the team you care so much about. 

and what about the fact that brad lidge’s only loss of the entire season (and please don’t take this as putting any sort of blame on him, as obviously we aren’t even close to this far without him) ends up actually costing the phillies home field in the world series.  pretty ironic, but not nearly as ironic as if say the florida marlins were in the series… ps. fuck you dan uggla!  also, if tbay ends up closing out the bosox it should be mentioned that scott kazmir picked up the W that night.
brad would like to remind you that billy wagners corpse also blew a save in that game
