Phillies get hosed by umpire Scott Barry in 16-inning loss

The Phillies played an epic game against the Astros, which lasted over 5 hours and went 16 innings. Unfortunately they lost to the Astros 4-2 and have dropped two games to one of the worst teams in the National League if not all of baseball. To add insult to injury, umpire Scott Barry ejected Ryan Howard after he flung his bat in disgust following a strikeout in the 14th inning. Philly2Philly's Joe Vallee explains the horrific umpiring in this serious in greater detail.

Donovan McNabb Rips Eagles in GQ Interview

Donovan McNabb once again proved that he's one of the most overly sensitive athletes in professional sports and perhaps the history of Philadelphia. In an interview to GQ he ripped the Eagles organization, denied puking, and of course blamed officials for confusing him with regards to the OT rule in that Bengals overtime game. Here are a few tidbits. McNabb complained that, "No one in the organization ever stepped up and said anything" in regards to him being a lightning rod for criticism since the day he was drafted by the Eagles. And, in regards to a sit-down with Joe Banner and Andy Reid in February 2009, "They'll say something to you in the building, but not publicly. My feeling was, 'I'm out here getting cut up, where are you? I'm always defending and helping you guys, but where's that support?"
