Glavine and Sullivan

He is the very model of a modern big-game pitching ace

Ignore info about his age and all those lines upon his face

Thrown inning after inning shutting every darn opponent out

From Spiezio to Yadier while making Albert Pujols pout

Very well acquainted, too, with hurling at this time of year

The only arm we have right now that doesn’t flat inspire fear

Defeating teams both now and then with stunning regularity

Never thought we’d welcome him with such familiarity

Eat ‘em up Tommy with the light brown hair.

    That's it, I'm going out to buy beer. Lots of beer.
    Is it pouring in NY? It's like armageddon here in Philly.

    The HMS Met-a-fore is still afloat, folks.
    Be honest. There's faith, and then there's fantasy. How many of you, once El Duque pulled up lame, truly believed they would make it this far? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
    Enjoy this ride, people, and let's ride on as long as we possibly can.

    As of right this minute, it's not looking good. Tommy was given a 2-run lead in the top of the 4th and proceeded to cought it up.
    Bleagh.

    The orchestra hit a bunch of sour notes, and that was before all those fucking…birds…came in and pecked the string section into bloody gobbets.

    an L, a big one, 4-2, after having runners on second and third with one out in the eighth. they have put themselves in an extremely tough hole, but the fox announcers just noted that the last time there was a game six at shea in the post-season, it was THAT game six. you might recall how that series turned out.
    so it's a must-win situation tomorrow night. i'll be there. just can't say i'll be enjoying it. i'll be too busy waiting to exhale.
