Phillies Listed in the Dictionary Under LOSER!!!!

I live in Philly and am just amazed at the level of excitement the Philadelphia Phillies are generating around town right now. in case you did not hear the Phillies are one game away from suffering their 10,000 loss in team history. Yes that is right…10,000th loss. The players are clearly annoyed by this type of attention but the fans are into it. Check out this article: Phillies One Away From Milestone 10,000th Loss. Some other things going around town are a scheduled parade fomr the original site of Connie Mack statue to a local sports bar and another promotion where you can write a story about your most tragic Philadelphia sports LOSERS moment where the winner gets 2008 Phillies season tickets. One of the craziest stats is that the next closest team as far as historic losses in MLB is 1,000 losses away. That is more than a decade of losses behind the Phils. Another favorite stat, in the Phils 125 year history they have only won one World Series. That is right…..a big fat ONE!!!! One fan even put together a website devoted to the 10,000th loss at www.celebrate10000.com.

So good luck Phightin Phils. You already are the biggest losers in the history of sports and 10,000 will be a great accomplishment. Rejoice fans in your loveable losers, you have nothing else to look forward to but the imminent Donovan McNabb injury and the start of the Kevin Kolb era so might as well enjoy your 10,000th losing moment in Phils history.

Donovan McNabb = Charmin extra soft

I just had to comment on the Donovan McNabb sensitivity training that is going on right now in Philadelphia. Here is the timeline:

Saturday, April 28, 2007 – Before the Eagles are ready to draft Kevin Kolb, QB, Houston, Andy Reid called Donovan McNabb to tell him about the pick and to make sure Donovan knew Kolb was not a threat. McNabb did not answer his phone. McNabb than texted ESPN reporter Michael Smith to say he was not happy about the pick. McNabb’s agent says he was totally baffled with the Eagles pick.

Monday, May 1, 2007 – McNabb worked out at the Eagles facility for 5 hours and did not speak with Andy Reid who was also there. The press picks up on the tension, calls Donovan’s dad to get some quotes out of him (Click here for the quotes: Father says his son can always find job)

Tuesday, May 2, 2007 – McNabb and Reid finally sit down to talk about the draft and clear the air. (Click here for article: Reid, McNabb finally catch up)

Now why is all of this news. Why does Andy Reid have to call Donovan McNabb to explain the Eagles pick? Last time I looked Donovan is not in charge of player moves, he is not the GM and therefore the Eagles do not need to warn him or ask his permission. What you basically have here is a sensitive QB that needs to be babied. Donovan grew up going to private school at upper crust prep school called Mt. Carmel in the Chicago area. He had to be babied when TO called him out. He had to be babied during Jeff Garcia’s success because Philly rallied behind Garcia and then essentially is the reason the Birds did not re-sign Garcia. He now has to be babied during the draft when the Eagles drafted a QB with their first pick.

C’mon Donovan. Grow a spine. You are the leader of the team, you are not some emotional wreck that needs to be coddled at any sign of an emotional challenge. The Eagles should man-up themselves and stop their elitist treatment of you. In my eyes you are one of the softest QBs in the league. Richard Seymour changed you when he decimated you in the Super Bowl. You have not been the same since. I do not know if Kolb is the answer and I would have loved to watch you compete with Garcia for the right to lead the Eagles because you need a swift kick to the butt. Running a team from the QB position is not a privilege that you simply step in to each year, you need to earn it and prove yourself 100% of the time. I do not think the Eagles will ever win a Super Bowl under your leadership because you are a baby and as soft as an extra soft roll of Charmin toilet paper.
