First there was the 9-1 shellacking last night by the Phillies, with Cole Hamels dominating the Marlins batters - retiring 17 straight at one point. Added to that, they had five home runs, including two by rookie Domonic Brown.

Today, their  hot streak continued against the Marlins as the Phillies routed them 8-1 this afternoon in the first game of a doubleheader. Kyle Kendrick gave up just one earned run and went to 4-4 on the year.

Right now, they are back at it with Roy Halladay on the hill against Anibal Sanchez. The Phillies are currently down 2-1, but it’s only the 2nd inning.

For the first time this season, Chase Utley will start a doubleheader. Hoefully Charlie Manuel's decision to push Utley won't backfire. Thus far over the first two games of the series it's the Phillies 17-2.

Tracy Morgan is the latest target of liberal, politically correct crybabies after making edgy "anti-gay" jokes, which are being construed as hate speech.

Morgan has since apologized and issued the following statement: “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.”

During a comedy show, Morgan said he would stab his kid if he were gay and that being homosexual is a choice. Of course his edgy comedy act didn't go over so well with politically correct liberals who are ready to burn him at the stake.

It just goes to show you how overly sensitive people on the left are in this country. They act as though words are more hurtful than a violent act, which is ludicrous. We live in a country where you can express what you wish. If you don't like it, don't listen, and turn your attention somewhere else. Simple as that. I can't stand watching NASCAR and think it's a joke of a "sport." But, I am not about to start up a movement to ban NASCAR in this country. Different strokes for different folks people. Live with it.

Liberal crybabies like the head of GLAAD think differently though. They would laugh if a comedian made fun of rednecks or hunters. But when it's their own it's worse than curb stomping a dog's  head  and recording it on youtube.

Even 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey came out in Tracy Morgan's defense by saying, "The violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community," she said in a statement. "It also doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person."

People need to get a grip and realize that Tracy Morgan is edgy and anything but a bigot. These same damn libs were laughing their rear-ends off a few months ago when Tracy Morgan said that Sarah Palin was "good masturbation material" during a live broadcast on TNT during a Knicks game. When you look at this it was just as edgy and offensive to many people. Back then it was funny because she's the anti-Christ to those on the left. Now, when Morgan makes a joke about a sensitive issue for those on the left it's a big deal.

Talk about a double standard.

Lenny Dykstra's downard spiral continues. Last July karma caught up to Lenny Dykstra in a big way as he was reportedly homeless after losing millions of his money and other people's money.

Then, there were reports that he was hanging out with Charlie Sheen. And, if you're hanging out with Charlie Sheen - you're bound to get into trouble at some point.

Yesterday, according to TMZ, Lenny Dykstra got arrested and charged with a whopping "23 felony counts and 2 misdemeanors including auto theft, identity theft, and possession of coke and Ecstacy."

This is a far cry for the former so-called investor guru, who was hyped up by legendary Wall Street guru Jim Cramer.  Remember way back in March 2008 before the Economic Collapse when Lenny was on Inside Sports on HBO?

Then there was the story of him losing his shirt when the stock market crashed. Then, there was the story about how he purchased Wayne Gretzky's house for way too much at the "peak" of the housing market.

Just three years later he's completely hit rock bottom. And it couldn't happen to a "better" person. Legend has it that Lenny Dykstra would imitate gassing someone to death when he would fire them. And, it's well documented how he hates Mitch Williams and won't get over 1993.

Now, the chickens have come home to roost Lenny.

Former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress (Phillies cap and all) was released from prison this morning. No sooner did he set foot on Plaxico Burress wearing the Phillies hat. Photo: APAmerican soil was he greeted by his agent Drew Rosenhaus, who has seen dollar signs dancing in his head for months while he awaits this day.

Despite the fact that a felon was walking out of jail wearing an old-school cap of my team I’ve practically spit blood for my entire life, this isn’t something I really minded. In fact, I thought it was pretty cool.
 
Make no mistake, Plaxico Burress is a total clown for what he did two years ago, but he’s not a thug. He didn’t torture or kill dogs like Michael Vick, he shot himself in a nightclub. To be fair, he endangered the lives of countless human beings that night, and what happened on that fateful evening could have been a lot worse than it was. Burress however, did pay his debt to society, and chances are he has learned his lesson and will never put himself in that situation again.

As soon as the NFL lockout ends, Burress is free to sign with the team of his choice. The Jets are rumored to be pursuing him, but Burress reportedly needs a change of scenery from New York.

Maybe that change of scenery is in Philadelphia. Despite the fact that Burress is most likely reformed, you have to love the irony that the Eagles, who once took great pride in having character players, could possibly be on the verge of signing their second convicted felon in three years. Who knows? Maybe Joe Banner really is disgusted with not having won a Super Bowl and is trying to change the definition of insanity?

When Brandon Jacobs, Burress’ good friend, comes out and says that Burress wants to be an Eagle, where there’s smoke there’s usually fire. Oddly enough, Burress then comes out of jail wearing a Phillies hat. If there is any truth to what we’ve been hearing in the Delaware Valley, Burress wearing an old-school Harold Carmichael jersey probably would have been a dead giveaway, but maybe there is some irony here after all.

 



If you think however, that Burress can just come and sign with the Eagles, it won’t be that easy. I’m no lawyer, but aren’t convicted felons prohibited to socialize with other convicted felons? Unless you tell Vick and Burress to stay away from each other off the field, but the chances of them never bumping into each other is unrealistic and highly unlikely. It’s a shame if that is the case, but rules are rules. The Eagles could sure use a red zone receiver like Burress, but they also need to sure up there defense at the same time.

Nonetheless, this is all a moot point until the labor situation is resolved, but it’s definately something worth keeping tabs on.

So a Philadelphia woman is claiming that she was hospitalized after drinking coffee from  Dunkin’ Donuts. The reason: an employee mistakenlyDunkin Donuts coffee placed sugar in her coffee instead of sweetener. The woman has filed a lawsuit over the incident, which reportedly occurred in 2009.

Really? Hmm.

Maybe it’s me, but judging by what I’ve heard, this story seems to have more loop holes than a Charles Barkley golf swing. Stranger things have happened, but does this woman REALLY think a self-respecting judicial system will actually see this through?  

Like us, you’re probably wondering how in the world this woman could ever win this case, so we’re gonna break it down. Take note that what you are about to read are rational judgments based on human beings with common sense. No doctors and/or lawyers were a factor in the following assessments. Let’s not kid ourselves: the afformentioned would only make this more complicated. Just look what lawyers have done with the NFL Lockout...........

For starters, I figured I’d ask someone I know who is well-versed on the dangers of improper sugar intake:

My diabetic father.

I asked him earlier what the likelihood was of ONE cup of coffee effecting the sugar level of a diabetic to the point of hospitalization.

“There are all levels of diabetes, just like peanut allergies. From one cup of coffee, this seems highly unlikely, but it would depend on her medical condition,” says Joe Sr.

“I have type two diabetes, but one cup of coffee won’t put me into a diabetic coma. Maybe five candy bars. She could have found out that they did what they did and then went crazy on sugar when she got home. But if someone is that sensitive to sugar, chances are they’re probably on some form of insulin.”

Thanks Big Joe!   Of course, Big Joe is not a doctor, which brings the next factor into question.Charles Barkley

Medical records: Need I say more? I probably should. But there will be a much better indication of the woman’s diabetic condition after her medical history is thoroughly looked over.

Again, maybe one cup of coffee completely set her off, but something just seems a little odd. After all, Seinfeld spoofed an entire episode on the Liebeck vs. McDonald’s restaurants case of 1992. Why you ask? Because that case, like this one, is ridiculous! In fact this case could make it's way into the top ten most ridiculous lawsuits of all time when it's all said and done.

Another issue that remains questionable is the process in which a Dunkin’ Donuts employee handles a placed order.

Now I’m not a coffee drinker, but back in my car dealership days, we would always take turns making Dunkin’ Donuts runs. As long as I can remember, the hired help never put the extras in the coffee, they always left that to you so the person whom you ordered the coffee for can add whatever sugar-sweetener-elixir he or she desires. Do they do this differently at this particular location?

So many questions, so little answers. Only time will tell if this woman is rewarded for her absurdity. We can only hope that Philly2Philly did our part to add some common sense to this delicate matter.

In the meantime, continue reading Philly2Philly for the latest updates on Coffeegate.

Liberals are in a frenzy after details emerged about Chris Christie taking a helicopter ride to go see his son's baseball game 70 miles away from Trenton.

God forbid the Governor of New Jersey gets to see his son play a baseball game.

God forbid the Governor of New Jersey uses a helicopter for transportation. Even though he was going on official business AFTER the game, Christie is still under fire.

These same damn liberals would look the other way if Ed Rendell would take a helicopter ride to go see the Eagles play in Pittsburgh. Heck, they would have turned a blind eye if Jon Corzine (one of the worst Governors in New Jersey history) got into a car wreck on the freeway. Oh wait...they did!

Fact of the matter is, the Governor is more important than teachers, labor unions, and regular working people. Something that liberal cannot understand is life isn't fair and some people are more important than others. It's a fact of life. 

Added to that, it's a perk that the Governor gets to ride around in a helicopter and a necessity. The Governor is a busy man and has to be in many places in  one day. This cannot be done by riding in a car.
