NLCS Game 3 Thread: Phillies @ Giants, 1p

Cole Hamels vs. Matt Cain.

COMMENTS: The NLCS moves to San Francisco for a trio of games, which should give SoSG regulars even more of a chance to tap into their ample resources of hate-filled vitriol. With every crowd shot of a Giants fan sipping his chardonnay with his pinky sticking out and his sweater tied over his shoulders, channeling that anger and hate into dreams of Giants suffering should be easy to do. So follow the words of Yoda--and CHANNEL THAT HATE AS STRONG AS YOU CAN. (At least, I believe that's the sentiment that the Jedi master was trying to convey. My recollection of Dagobah is a little murky, however.)

Like Yoda himself, let's hope the Phillies use this Cain for a lot of walks this afternoon. (10 years in purgatory for that one, I know.)

Nice try, Sax. 20 years minimum.

Josh S. said...

I have to admit, despite my controversial stance on this series, seeing crestfallen panda-hatted douchebags will make it easier to stomach the Phillies winning.

MR. F said...

Go Phillies!!!

Spanky said...

I like your high school pic Sax. That pink sweater is so you.

Steve Sax said...

@Orel 10:07a: hey, at least I didn't use the tired Cain/Abel theme. I mean, come on. I think of those who use that pun, and I think of Singaporean corporal punishment.

Whoops, sorry about that pun, too.

Steve Sax said...

Bring the Hate, people.

Orel said...

You're right, Sax — that gag is below your Abelities.

Spanky said...

R.I.P. The real Mr.C.

Mr. Customer said...

Say what, now?

MR. F said...

You mean our Mr. C is a fraud?

Mr. Customer said...

Bosley? Gott in Himmel.

Spanky said...

Bosley

Orel said...

T-Boz?

MR. F said...

Mr. Chili, obviously.

MR. F said...

(Seriously, RIP... after figuring out who everybody is talking about)

rbnlaw said...

The Fonz finally has Mrs. C all to himself..

Where's the Champions' League thread?

Dusty Baker said...

I swear I thought Bosley had been dead for ten years.

Dusty Baker said...

Chelsea won on the commie turf!

rbnlaw said...

Oh, hell yes.
Sami Nasri with a great finish.
2-0 over Shaktar.

Spanky said...

I am a scratch for the game. I need someone to covet my Holy Grail of HATERADE. Must spit equal parts HATE to each team. Any takers?

Dusty Baker said...

hate Hate HATE | HATE Hate hate

I think that's what you're saying, Spanky.

Steve Dittmore said...

Seriously, let's get the UEFA thread... gotta pull for Real Madrid (I teach as an adjunct for Instituto de Empresa in Madrid).

Carry over from other thread, indeed Spanish women > British women

Spanky said...

I bequeath to Dusty, the cup of HATE.


FUCK YOU GNATS
FUCK YOU PHILI

Dusty Baker said...

Your little boyfriend Ronaldo is in form for Real these days, P Ditty. Real up 2-0 right now, no?

Steve Dittmore said...

'Lil Ditty wore his Ronaldo black Real jersey to school yesterday. Odds are good no one in Arkansas knew what it was.

Josh S. said...

HATE THE HAIGHT

Steve Dittmore said...

Was at the Villareal match in Feb. when Ronaldo scored on this free kick. He's a punk but he's got some skillz.

Dusty Baker said...

"He's a punk but he's got some skillz."

That's what they say about Neeebs.

Dusty Baker said...

rbnlaw said...

Arsenal on a walk through today.

Good to Cesc back on form. . .for the most part.

Fred's Brim said...

Remember when Tommy was almost going to go to the Giants? For those that remember, how close was that to actually happening? I almost threw up when I heard that.

1982 Joe Morgan? He can go to hell

rbnlaw said...

I HAIGHT FRISCO!!

rbnlaw said...

Holy shit. Arsenal pouring it on now.
5-0 to the Gunners.


We'll likely get blanked at the Eastlands.

Orel said...

Jeff Kent showing his true colors during the Giants' pre-game ceremony.

Orel said...

I picked a good day to stay home from work.

Orel said...

Phillies' pitching coach: Rich Dubee -Dubee-Doo

Fred's Brim said...

"Jeff Kent showing his true colors during the Giants' pre-game ceremony."

so he was drinking Natty Light in cutoffs on the front yard while sitting in a lawn chair with his feet in a kiddie pool

Fred's Brim said...

in short: Jeff Kent is a redneck

Orel said...

Even worse, he's a Giant.

Orel said...

1-2-3
1-2-3

0-0

Fred's Brim said...

Orel did you roll a Small Straight?

Orel said...

Worse commercial pitchman: Joe Girardi or Joe Maddon?

Orel said...

I was aiming for quad sevens.

Josh S. said...

But he ducked.

Orel said...

Aflac!

Steve Sax said...

MR. F said...

Who needs Gameday when we have you!

Orel said...

Ruiz bloop single.

Orel said...

Gameday isn't in danger of taking a nap....

rbnlaw said...

More scoring in the Arsenal game than you'll likely see from the Gnats and Fills.

S. Ditty,
Thanks for the confirmation on las mujeres de Espana.

My Spanish grammar is weak salsa.

Orel said...

Orel said...

Cain plonks Vic Shanetorino in the robs! Two on, two out!

Steve Sax said...

i'm not watching the game, but i hope they didn't throw it at victorino's head. he don't like that much.

Josh S. said...

I'm on Gameday. Did he "throw down here, not up here"?

Fred's Brim said...

Orel said...

Really? 47 pitches already?

Dusty Baker said...

Thought you'd like that, FB!

Orel said...

Josh S. said...

I wouldn't have it any other way, Orel.

Dusty Baker said...

"old drunks who sleep in the park next to my house"

Half of SoSG readership should take offense at that remark, FB.

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

Gload is unfortunate nomenclature, indeed.

Orel said...

Say, when is the rent check due, FB?

Fred's Brim said...
