Thank You, KSK: Andy Reid O-Face Photoshop Contest

A member of the much better sports blog Kissing Suzy Kolber decided to have some fun with a picture of Andy Reid getting bumped by DeSean Jackson last Sunday. The result: a Photoshop contest and dozens of hilarious Fat Andy pictures.

Oh, the internet. Rick Astley, Kanye West, anything on Tosh.0...what would I do without you?

Phillies Are Champs! (In Indonesia)

Apparently people in Indonesia will think the Phillies are back-to-back champions. So, we have that going for us...which is nice.

Dolla Dolla Bills Yall - Week 9

Hope you guys listened last week. went an unbelievable 11-2.  You're welcome.  The Shark expects his cut any day now.  Don't keep him waiting.

If he pulls it off again this week, we might have to think about setting up a service here.  We can't keep lining your pockets with green, you savages.

Okay, enough of last week.  On to your Week 9 NFL Spread Picks!

Links for Friday

As the phucking Yankees celebrate their 1,294th championship (at least it feels like that number) we in Philadelphia are left thinking about next year.

So, as you float through this Friday in anticipation for the alcoholic beverages that I'm sure will drown your sorrows this weekend, here are number of interesting links to get you through the day. Oh, and I turn 26 tomorrow, so wish me a happy birthday.

NFL Week 9 Power Rankings

Never forget.

Thank you, Phillies

I'm not going to rehash what went wrong, criticize any players or second guess moves that were made. That's not for today, it's simply too soon. The sting of last night's loss is too fresh, the end too recent to step back and honestly evaluate what just happened. There will be a time and place to do so and I'll be first in line when that time comes.

I'm Bitter and Petty

As you might've heard, the Phillies fell to the New York Yankees last night and are no longer World Champions.

Wounds are fresh.  Hearts are broken.  Disappointment and nostalgia, at this time, have taken a backseat to initial anger and disbelief.

World Series Point/Counterpoint

In the spirit of a great Northeast rivalry, my friend, fellow blogger, and avid Yankees fan Violator has been a good enough sport to lend us a hand in understanding what’s on tap for the upcoming World Series game(s). She’s a real life Yankees insider (owns a press pass) and probably knows more about the Bronx Bombers than most of the writers at ESPN. The full post on her blog can be seen here, but we’ve gone ahead and responded directly to her claims below.’s comments are in bold.

Do or Do Not, There is No Try

In searching for inspiration this morning, I looked no further than our favorite Jedi Master Yoda.

Do or do not, there is no try.

Heads I Win, Tails You Lose

In sports, even the smallest competitive advantage can alter the outcome of a game. There isn't a team that would pass up any such opportunity. After a recently conducted study, a new advantage has been revealed - and as small as it may seem, could actually have some impact on NFL games.

Chase Utley, You Are The Man!

Last night, the city of Philadelphia was hoping for the best and prepared for the worst. Was it even possible that the hated New York F'in Yankees would celebrate their 27th World Series title on our field? After an early run-scoring double courtesy of A-Roid, it was looking like the night may not belong to our Fightin's. Chase Utley, however, had a different idea.

These Pristiq Commericals Are Depressing

"And I have to keep winding myself up to deal with the sadness, the loss of interest, trouble concentrating, lack of energy...."

Yo, Pristiq, some of these World Series games are depressing enough without your Debbie Downer pill commercials. Are you sure you're advertising to the right market? Try moving these ads to 11am on CBS to catch the single (unemployed) women sitting down for their first glass of wine to watch some Price is Right. I don't need to see this lady or her sadness doll anymore.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Video after the jump.

At Least the Eagles Won, Right?

We learned a few things about the birds after their 40-17 domination of the rival Giants.  And, you know, at least you've still got your health, right?

Well This Would've Been Nice

The Philadelphia Phillies are back-to-back World Champions of baseball! 

Oh wait, nevermind. 

After a heartbreaking Game 4 loss, the Philadelphia Inquirer just wants to taunt us .  Or maybe it's Macy's fault.  Whatever.  Either way - not cool.

Sad Face Emoticon

That's about all anyone has right now. At moments like this, it's hard to find words. There will be more at another time, but for now I'll leave you with this:

The Phillies are still the defending champions.

Don't forget that.

Go Phils. Give 'em hell.
