The Omelette Friday October 8, 2010 Weekly Roundup

Roy Halladay tosses second no-hitter in postseason history

Anymore it seems like the Phillies' success is a dream. But, when we wake up, it's for real. They never cease to amaze us with their winning ways. Phillies ace Roy Halladay pushed the envelope further by tossing the second no-hitter in Major League postseason history. He became the first pitcher in history to toss a no-hitter in the regular season and in the playoffs.

Flight delayed at Philadelphia Airport for Six Hours Following Security Breach

A suspicious man posing as a baggage handler was asked why he didn't have proper identification. He then took off on a baggage cart. No evidence of any bombs were found on the plane.

And, now the roundup:

Michael Vick will miss the Eagles' game Sunday night against the 49ers due to his rib injury. Cigar Guy, the infamous goofy looking guy in the background of a Tiger Woods photo is all the rage. A toxic sludge leak in Hungary has reached the Danube river, but it has apparently been neutralized by the mighty river. Government licensing on the internet was proposed by an exec at Microsoft...terrible idea all around. The new Gap logo is horrendous and looks like the creation of a poor graphic arts student.

Final thought: Tim Lincecum two-hit the Braves last night in his postseason debut. Should the Phillies play the Giants in the NLCS, it could be a difficult series. Lincecum is no joke. He'll only pitch 3 games tops, but those will be 3 very tough games.
