Your Gameday Beer – Corona Light

We’ll be enjoy Corona Light’s all weekend long on the beach and we soak up the rays and wait for the Phillies game to start. That’s livin’ right there. Corona light is surprisingly smooth and won’t fill you up. Most beer advocates look down upon Corona, but I’m of the many that believe it’s a great beer. I’d much rather drink it than Miller or Bud – but that’s just me. Enjoy the weekend! – By Pat

GO PHILLIES

    The site has serious issues. Been over it 100 times though.
    Why is it so busy? Why this red on the sides?
    Whats happening on the bottom? I refuse to look because I know its why it takes it 2 minutes to load

    But I come here to express my thoughts

    Instead of waterboarding they should torture people by making them listen to a game with Mike Emerick doing play by play and Tim McCarver doing commentary

    Id choose waterboarding over that in a second.

    And they both have ruined a sport for a long time. you watch the Stanley cup or a WS game from 10 years ago and there are these 2 worthless turds.

    OK I am gearing up for Mccarver time.
    Emerick is such that I just dont watch a hockey game he is doing unless its a Flyers playoff game and then its a responsibility.

    Guys, really sorry. We are really trying to clean things up, they are just taking longer than we thought. We only have one guy working on it. Go Phils.

    If it just went back to the simpleness of how it used to be would be a major upgrade.

    At least I started Reyes tonight :)

    Joe Buck is backhandedly laying compliments on thick for the Philies to jinx them. He’s a Cardinals fan. It’s really annoying.

    Mutts don’t need David Wright anymore, with Turner.

    Happy Memorial day weekend everyone. To all who served, thank you.

    My father fought in the “battle of the bulge” in the ardennes in WWII. He’s no longer with us, but my hero nonetheless.

    Okay. just wanted to throw that in there real quick, back to baseball. Go Phils!

    If the Phils were 4 games under .500 like the muts, CBP would still be filled. It’s not like they are 20 games out.

    when I think Joe buck I think Midnight cowboy

    How many guys set thier career hit mark vs the phillies

    like turner did last night

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew From Waldorf

    My buddy who is the Mets fan
    Drafted Pujos #1 overall in fantasy
    And I made a fun prop bet for only 50 bucks that Reyes would score more runs this year than Pujos
    Thus far I am winning

    People thought I was insane for making the bet. But I am happy with jose so far

    I forgot that the guy in Midnight Cowboy was named Joe Buck.

    I’ve forgotten a lot of things, it’s not Alzheimer’s, it’s Jim Ignatowski syndrome.

    Between Polanco and Utley the lineup stresses pitchers out alot more

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew From Waldorf

    Buck and McCarver are just so into each other

    At least McCarver understnads the importance of catching!

    He hasnt really done this before

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew From Waldorf

    OK Tim tell the catchers they cant block the plate

    I wish Howard worked counts and was a tough out

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew From Waldorf

    They will move Posey to 1b or LF
    Weakening the NL
    Which helps the phils

    Raul with his 3rd road RBI this year!

    Trade offer..

    Rollins and Howard for Reyes and Wright….

    I hate Reyes but on the phillies he would have 150 runs…AWESOME BABY

    Howie is a wasted turd.

      I once worked in a store. The guy that sold us the gourmet cheese used to push all kinds of stuff we couldn’t sell. I used to ask him

      “Will it keep?”

      He always said yes, and I always said

      “Keep it”

      Jose Reyes!!!! Never ugggghh!!!—- Now if you want to talk Turner or Beltran.

    When I umpire for little kids I don’t allow catchers to block the plate, and feet first slides from the runners only. I go over it with the coaches before each game, they hate me, I don’t care.

    Posey didn’t even start off as catcher I don’t think, it’s not his natural position.

    McCarver recognizes Carlos value, I hope others will finally really look at him.

    Dom Brown swung at two balls outside the zone, he will learn.

    Utley looks fine, fielding, running, and sliding. And he just works pitchers to death, we really missed that.

    Tim Mcarver should shut his mouth. Posey had the entire plate blocked. If you slide your out. Shut up old man. YOu were horrible and I hope these guys would run over you..

    LOL @ Jeff

    Maybe the Mets closer will beat him up

    Why is Fox so obsessed with ballpark food?

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew From Waldorf

    I am not a Howard guy

    Id prefer a higher avg and more walks from my 1b

    But hes ours to keep

    movable and untradable

    So I just enjoy him

    I believe hes under.230 avg for his career 7th inning and later

    And it seems that any game the Phiillies are up by 10 or down by 10 he homers.

    Or was that ESPN? Some station kept showing the cheesesteaks cooking, and now they’re showing the burgers and shakes

    I am not for any individual guy, I’m a team guy, a Phillies fan. So when I defend individuals it’s not some ridiculous, crazed, love affair some fans get.

    Howard homered in the bottom of the tenth three games ago.

    The have stock footage of the cheesesteaks
    they use it for every eagles game the same footage

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew From Waldorf

    I am fine with Howard
    Untill we play 9 playoff games he has no RBI
    Then I cry like a baby

    If this was 1927 and a Yankees blog I would be pointing out Ruth and Gehrigs flaws

    And Jeff would be calling them fat worthless turds LOL

    @Pat re cleaning up the site: You know, I’m the Sharepoint administrator where I work, and we were having similar problems with our Intranet home page — 45 seconds to load. I solved it: made a blank home page and added each control back onto the page one at a time, testing in between, waiting for something to break. It turned out that the source of the problem was debris from a consultant’s early attempt at creating our Intranet. When I finished adding back everything we actually wanted on the page, there were no more delays.

    I really don’t like this ball park.

    Jimmy’s still got it. I say extend him. Don’t give him a chance to go back out west.

    Should have been a hit, your friends will tell you it’s bad BAPIP. I think it’s bad luck, but we can call it anything they want. Rollins nice job.

    Where are the METS Trolls??!!!! Come on guys, you’re actually winning, better hurry before you’re not anymore.

    tim McMoron calls it a great move when the guy comes in to get Pelfrey causes its a leftie to face a lefty and stop the running game

    So Jimmy promptly steals second and Utley gets him home

    thanks again Tim

    WOO HOO! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Phillies often do their best work with 2 outs.
