Your gamenight beer: I suppose it’s a fitting beer. It’s Lump of Coal. This English beer is strong as hell. Everyone: Drink one for me tonight. I’m hoping I don’t get a lump of coal in my apartment when I hopefully check out the damage tomorrow.

Go Phillies!

    Another fast start for the Phils! And another different lineup… I wonder how many different lineups Manuel has used this year.

    tim or anyone else that could answer this please do… i dont understand why we dont plug burell btw utley and howard… when howard and utley are back to back they can have a lefty pitch to them late in the game and then sub a righty for burell. if burell is btw the two either utley and howard get a righty or burell gets a lefty. with burell hitting good he should be btw the two i think bc they could give mangers a headache with matchups and get some better matchups then they are now…what do you think abewt that? this situation happens at least once a game

    Off topic men. Is it me….or does it appear Andy Reid is smoking some of his kids crack. The Eagles look like they have no clue in this draft.

    i will stay off topic but disagree with you. eagles fans have collectively been asking for another wide out. jackson is a guy with amazing speed and great hands and has the abilty to really make people miss in the the open field. i could def compare him to a donte stallworth. he is the guy we need to stretch the field. he is also a crazy good return man. go check out some of his vids on you tube. i think he was a great pick as well as trading for booker from miami. he is a great guy to add to westbrook and buckhalter in the backfield. i do believe donovan got the weapons that he asked for. i am very happy with the birds draft so far this year. the extra round 1 pick for next year is also a great bonus. but anyway, going to the bottom of the ninth, great game so far phils

    Even better for Kendrick, no walks. I like the looks of that.

    Profoundly off topic.

    But if you guys think us eagles fans got screwed in the draft (which I don’t), how about bengals fans? Check out some of their message boards… its hilarious.

    Imagine if we drafted jerome simpson instead of jackson??

    Wow, i feel for the bengals fans.
