Phillies Grind Out a Win in D.C.

Phillies Grind Out a Win in D.C.

Everyone has their favorites, and as stated previously, I'm a big Jimmy Rollins fan.  There was a pitching duel in D.C. yesterday between Brett Myers and Esteban Loaiza which went scoreless until the 9th inning.

I sat down last night after work at about 7:00 PM, cracked open a cold one, and turned the game on to watch tonight's match up in D.C.  As soon as I turn the T.V. on I realize the Phillies are off to an early 1-0 lead, but then I see its the ninth inning???  Little did I know it was a 4:30 start.  Oh well, I turned it on right after my boy Jimmy Rollins led off the 9th with a long ball to take a 1-0 lead over the Nats.  I think I will call them the Nats from now on if we beat them and the Nationals if they beat us.

Jimmy Rollins ended the Phillies scoreless innings streak and set the table for Billy Wagner to do his job.  Billy came through. 

If you are wondering what a Phillies game at RFK is like in D.C., Tom G. of Balls, Sticks, and Stuff gives a nice little recap of the experience.

A surprising Eagle keeps getting drug tested


A surprising Eagle keeps getting drug tested

Jake Elliott has been a revelation for the Philadelphia Eagles after Caleb Sturgis went down with an injury early in the season.

But has he been too good...

If you're looking for a good laugh today, go check out this reddit thread that starts with a photo from Elliott's Instagram story in which he points out he got flagged for his third drug test in two weeks.

The comment section is as good as a Jake Elliott 62 yarder.

"Well, he does bleed green...," abenyishay says..

"Is kickers doping really a thing?" ChaosFinalForm wonders, as do we.

What do you think? Just the way the random drug draw fell the last few weeks, or does the NFL think Jake Elliott is into something?
