Here are some Philly Phun Phacts from the weekend of baseball.
Rain Delay Programming – I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who did not watch Fox’s offering of “Till Death.” I watched the 1982 classic, Fast Times at Ridgemont High on one of the HBOs.
Forget Joe the Plumber – We have Joe the pitcher and power hitter. Way to go Blanton!
Bad Facial Hair, Good Pitching – Blanton and Scott Eyre
Numbers Game – Maybe there is something to 1980 and 2008.
Father’s Day – Phillies announcer Harry Kalas and his son, Todd, who is an announcer for the Rays announced the starting lineups for Fox on Sunday.
It Sounded Better on Paper – Fox’s wired up feature was mostly used to hear Shane Victorino say “I got it, I got it.”
Comcast Error - Many viewers (including me) missed a chunk of the game during Saturday’s game.
Best Bench Warmer – Geoff Jenkins
Best Local Television Team – Comcast SportsNet
