The Thursday Morning Rundown

What Sports-Related stuff is running through my mind this morning

Phillies are going back to the World Series

After losing Game 4 with 2 out in the 9th, the Dodgers pretty much went through the motions in last nights loss to the Dodgers. With the exception of a failed rally in the 8th, the Dodgers just didn't seem to interested in the game. For the second straight year, the Dodgers fall short of getting to the World Series. For the 20th straight year we don't get to see their fans leave a World Series game in the 7th inning.

For the Phillies, they get a chance to be the first team since the 1998-2000 Yankees to be repeat World Series Winners. For now, the Phils play the waiting game to see whether they match up against New York or Earth of North America of Los Angeles of Anaheim.

On a personal note, i'm wondering if the Phillies win enough World Series, whether the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will make an episode where they try to capitalize on their championship.........even if they don't its all good as long as the show remains hilarious.

Speaking of the could be ending tonight

The Angels have their backs to the wall and are in danger of having their season come to an end. The Angels have at least shown the resiliency to bounce back from close losses. I'm not saying that the Angels will necessarily win but at least they're going to show up

ESPN Gone Wild

So, yesterday morning the story regarding Steve Phillips' affair with Brooke Hundley broke and went viral. Normally, I wouldn't give a TMZ-esque situation like this the time of the day (i'm not Joe Buck...I actually like sports better than but for some reason I have a strange fascination with this story.......the rational side of me says this is one of the biggest non-stories ever........the other side of me just can't get enough of this breaking scandal. I don't know whether its rooted in things I don't like about ESPN or what but either way this story has taken on a life of its own. Either way it should be interesting how this story unravels (but probably not in a good way)
