The buzz before the Phillies huge win over the Nationals tonight in Philadelphia was the appearance of Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin at Pat Burrell's favorite pick up spot, the Irish Pub. We're told she received the royal Philly treatment and was showered with boos as well as chants of "Sarah go home!" Also in attendence at the bar was the head man of the Flyers and Sixers, Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider. It hasn't been confirmed yet but Ed was reportedly trying to recruit Mrs. Palin to give Simon, Scottie, and Braydon a ride home from practice tomorrow at the Spectrum.
Rumor has it her next stop is Flushing, New York to help support the Mets post season trip to nowhere.

It's still unclear whether or not the Eagles will have Ronald Darby for Monday night's game, but at least they'll have their linebackers.
Both Jordan Hicks (calf) and Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) will be OK to play against Washington on Monday night, head coach Doug Pederson said.
"Both of them will practice today," Pederson said on Saturday morning. "They're both doing well. Just to get a couple extra days of rest. And Mychal has actually practiced all week. Jordan's been the one we've kept out. Both of them will go today and we'll get a better understanding of where they're at but they'll be fine for the game."
Hicks, Kendricks and Darby were the only three Eagles who were limited in Friday's practice.
Darby (ankle) will be listed as questionable for the game, but earlier in the week Pederson said "stars have to align" for the cornerback to play this week. The 49ers game on Oct. 29 is probably more likely.
Darby, who dislocated his right ankle in Week 1, returned to practice for the first time this week.
"[Darby has] looked well. It's just day by day with him," Pederson said. "We'll get through today's practice with him. Obviously, have limited his reps during practice. He is doing well and we'll get through today and tomorrow to make a decision for [the game]."
The Eagles will practice on Saturday at 11:45 a.m. and the injury report will come out later in the afternoon.
