Phillies' Bats Come up Big … etc.

It wasn’t looking good for Chase Utley and crew when yours truly hit the hay last night.  But 40 year old Matt Stairs’ 2-run homer put the Phillies in the win column for the 3rd time in the NLCS – and on the brink of their first World Series since 1993.

Speaking of 1993 made me nostalgic for the bad old days, so I googled Wild Thing and Phillies.  Sounds like Mitch Williams is doing well – and in Philly no less.  There’s hope for all of us!  πŸ˜‰

Continuing on a Philly note, HollyCornblog sent me a piece from The Nation in which Dave Zirin and Daniel Denvir futher explicate “Puckgate.”  I hadn’t picked up on the most despicable part of the story – in which the Governor drags her daughter onto the ice with her, pretty much as a shield, it sounds like.  Inspiring stuff, Sarah.

It is being reported that Sarah Palin is going to appear on Saturday Night Live on October 25 – hosting the show no less.   I for one am going to writing to SNL and NBC and anyone else who will listen … to protest this.  I hope you will, too.

It’s way too close to the election.  She’s not a known enough quantity as it is – having sat for only a couple of interviews and participated in only one debate.  Giving her the stage in this way is just wrong and will carry far too much weight heading toward November 4th, IMHO.  Not a good idea, folks!

If you google “NBC contact” there will be a drop-down menu of programs—just click onto Saturday Night Live and write your message.

  1. … and in Australia, counter-clockwise!

    Hi Jordy – I agree with you that featuring Sarah Palin in this SNL venue further confuses the central issue. Voters need to consider Palin’s worthiness (cough) re judgment, competence and balance. If she’s rated by her ability to upstage a send-off, where’s the valid criteria? Sloshing in a clockwise direction down the tubes, that’s where.


So, what do you think?
