Here are some thoughts about the broadcast of the Phillies’ pennant clinching win over the Dodgers Wednesday night.
Celebrity Bailout – Most of the celebrities from the night before bailed, except for Mary Hart and her Dodgers’ “Letterman” sweater. The only others spotted were Henry Winkler and Alyssa Milano. Without real celebrites to see, we had to deal with the regulars behind home plate including the Milli Vanilli guy, the Dyan Cannon wannabe, and the L.A. lawyer.
Angel in the Outfield – Philly’s David “Angel” Boreanaz, the son of 6ABC’s Dave Roberts announced the Phillies starting lineup for Fox. Roberts was also at the game.
Stock Market Crash – With the stock market dropping every day, that e-trade commercial featuring the baby buying stocks isn’t so funny any more.
Chase Utley You Are the Man – Judging by the amount of people searching for Chase Utley on this site alone, Chase should be the next Phillie to land a national endorsement.
McCarver Corrects Error – Tim McCarver made it a point to say that Ryan Madsen had the 2nd best change-up on the team behind Cole Hamels, after saying the opposite in an earlier game.
Drayton Better, But Not Perfect – Philly newcomer Thomas Drayton didn’t embarrass himself as much on the pre-game show last night, but still made an error when he threw a report to Chickie’s and Pete’s on the South Side, instead of South Philly.
