Monday Recap: Phillies, Eagles, Penn State

Monday, September 22, 2008

It was a good weekend for my sports teams, going 4-for-4 Saturday and Sunday.

The Phillies lost Friday night's game against the Florida Marlins, but rebounded with two straight victories over the pesky Fish. Brad Lidge continues to be the man in the closer spot. The Phillies now have a magic number of six, which you can continue following through photo form on this blog. The Phillies, thankfully, are finished playing the Marlins this year. The only way we play them again is if the Marlins somehow make the wild card.

Oh, speaking of the Wild Card...

...Anybody want to buy these guys a closer? Nah, me neither!

The Mets lost two games against the Braves over the weekend and once again watched a half game lead transform into a game and a half deficit to the Phillies.

Yeah, it is safe to say that the Phillies are going to be playing in October. I am confident. Three more tough games against the Braves are still to be played and the Nationals come to town to play spoiler, but it will be difficult for the Phillies not to make the playoffs. They have a three game buffer on the Brewers, who are 1.5 games behind the Mets for the Wild Card.

Does anybody think the Brewers can overtake the Mets? Wouldn't that be something? The Mets have four games against the Cubs this week before finishing with the Marlins.

Football real quick...

There was this...

...and there was this...

Penn State looks pretty darn good. The Eagles look pretty darn good too. Could the Eagles be one of the best teams in the NFC? It sure seems like it. After watching some of that Cowboys-Packers game last night I have to think the Eagles are ahead of Green Bay. Am I right people? Am I right?
