Phillies On Verge of Choking Against Giants

The Phillies lost a heartbreaker last night, losing 6-5 against the Giants. Their offense finally came to life last night, but between the blown calls and untimely bullpen mistakes they couldn't get the job done. With a commanding 3-1 lead the Giants have all the momentum now and will likely kill the Phillies' World Series hopes. Not even Roy Oswalt could save them last night as he gave up the game-winning sac fly in the 9th. They will go at it tonight at 7:57 with Halladay against Lincecum. Don't miss Joe Vallee's recap of The Phillies-Giants Game Four debacle.

Howard Eskin Claims Some Phillies At One Time Were on Steroids

Howard Eskin yesterday insinuated several Phillies had used steroids. However, he stopped elaborating on the matter and didn't pinpoint when exactly this was. Who knows whether Eskin was reffering to some possible members of the 1993 team, or in the present day. Like I said, he stopped talking about the issue and was vague. 

Penthouse Founder Bob Guccione Dies

Finally in what is a light newsday in Philly )outside of the Phillies' dreadful performance against the Giants in the NLCS) we'll hit on a national topic. Legendary founder of Penthouse Bob Guccione passed away yesterday. He was 79 years old. Guccione is also known for producing what is the nastiest and filthiest movie to ever hit mainstream movie theatres; Caligula.  The movie starred Malcom McDowell - the star of Stanley Kubrick's Clockwork Orange. I attempted to watch Caligula once and struggled to make it through. The movie is violent, pornographic, and on a scale of 1-100 it scores a 200 for shock value. Never again will we see a movie hit the big screen, which was this shocking.
