Monday Night Football Baseball Live-Blog: Pregame

Monday, October 27, 2008


Who: Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies
What: Beisbol
When: Tonight, 8:30pm (FOX)
Where: Citizens Bank Park - Philadelphia, PA
Why: So Joe Buck and Tim McCarver can explain the ground rules at Tropicana Field just one more time, even though the game is in Philadelphia....and/or....mean mug the camera while their seats are at awkward and completely different heights (seriously...what is that about?)
How: Ryan Howard in the Laboratory with a Subway Cheesesteak
Weather: All I know is that I'm freezing my ass off and Philly is about 2 hours north of here.

Alrighty people, you've spoken and you want to talk Baseball tonight and what baby wants....baby gets. I'll be starting the live-blog around 8ish, leave your predictions and thoughts in the comments, and I'll see you later on.

6 Comments:

It will be rained out and you'll only have to live blog one.

Parade rescheduled.

Rain is scheduled in Philly tonight but Citizens Bank Park is playable in a steady rain. The rain is supposed to be light until well past midnight and tomorrow is not looking like it's going to be much better. So I think they are going to play tonight.

I hate the cheesy music that Fox is using (the inspirational instrumental music). I think it debuted at the all star game. Makes me want to puke.

Report from the bars in Philly. Scattered drunkenness with only a few occasional idiots. Overheard someone asking where the nearest electronics store was located in the off chance there was some looting tonight. His wife wants a HD flat screen TV.

I'm hunkered down in the corner with the best seat to watch the game AND look out for any potential trouble but I also have direct access to the bartender.

Pray for our souls and the historical buildings that Joe Buck loves so much.

Tyler,

They started using that music last year in the playoffs.

Call me crazy, but I kind of like it. It's like a one shining moment type of thing. And ANYTHING is better than that stupid Rocky music they play EVERY INNING after the phillies score.
