NLCS Game 6 Thread: Giants @ Phillies, 5p

Jonathan Sanchez (0-1, 2.03) vs. Roy Oswalt (1-1, 3.29).

COMMENTS: Since I, SoSG Orel, was apparently fated to write this Game Thread, can we talk about fate for a minute? Were the Rangers fated to make their first World Series this year, or did they just manage to burn through the best of the AL East with talent and hard work? Are the Giants fated to return to the World Series for the second time in nine years, or do the Phillies have enough juice — which they had more than plenty of in 2008 and 2009, assholes — to make a comeback for the ages?

As we've discovered in our comments, you can lose years off your life rooting for a team not to win. Baseball just isn't as enjoyable when you're pulling for a negative outcome. But hell, everybody around here is half-happy that the Yankees are getting ready to hit the links, so what's another two Giants losses? Call it fate, or Phight — because I'm getting tired of rooting against the bad guys.

Mr. Customer said...

I didn't think it was possible, but if the Jints win this, I'll hate BOTH of these teams more than I already do.

Orel said...

Phillies should be as embarrassed as the Yankees.

Mr. Customer said...

This season has been a goddamn travesty. At least the Yankees are toast. That counts for something.

Josh S. said...

Hopefully it's the Rangers' year, Orel.

If the Giants win the series let's hope that Texas will put away these fuckers. I think they have it within them.

Orel said...

NicJ said...

The gints fans were insufferable with being perennial losers.

Spanky said...

STRIKE OUT TOO! YES. THANX

Orel said...

If Wilson gets a hit here...

Spanky said...

Don't fuck this up ,ASSHOLE. STRIKE HIM OUT!

MR. F said...

I left rice in the rice cooker too long and a bunch of mold started growing.

But that shit is delectable compared to Brian Wilson's beard. Fuck. I just lost my appetite.

Orel said...

Okay, here we go. Last chance to NOT FUCK UP, Phillies.

NicJ said...

Howard should have tripped Wilson on his way to first.

Mr. Customer said...

Rancho unholyendo...

Orel said...

Yum, Mr. F.

Spanky said...

I am pretty sure that rice was grown in that beard,Mr.F.

Mr. Customer said...

Whew.

Orel said...

I think swinging the bat messed up Wilson's throwing arm there.

MeanieBreanie said...

Is Wilson so daft that he actually thinks that thing looks good? Apparently so.

Woman repellent
Gold Digger allure

NicJ said...

kings hat trick!

Spanky said...

FUCK

MR. F said...

Ugh. 1 out.

Orel said...

karina said...

I FUCKING HATE YOU FUCKING WANNABE HIPSTER, it's a shame you share the name of a great musician.

this on-field celebration is nauseating.

Sorry for my French :(

Mr. Customer said...

Tejas, if you don't beat these insufferable douche bags, I will personally beat each and every one of you senseless with a week-old herring.

NicJ said...

im still watching hoping to see someone turn an ankle in the celebration.

Orel said...

TV: off.

karina said...

I just have to say something: this could be way much worse but tonight, I have some protection.

Mr. Customer said...

*sulks*

NicJ said...

dont tell me Cody Ross is going to be the NLCS MVP.

Josh S. said...

FUCK THE PADRES!!!

MeanieBreanie said...

Unfuckingbelievable! Even if the Phillies can pull it off they really don't deserve to win.

FUCK THE GIANTS/PHILLIES
GO RANGERS!

Spanky said...

I won't give the Trollers the satisfaction.

FUCK YOUR FUCKING PANSY GNATS! THEY STILL HAVE NOT WON SHIT!

Mr. Customer said...

At the very least, this Sophie's choice of a series is over. Have some hate for the road, Philly. You pricks.

NicJ said...

phillies screw us again.

karina said...

you have a point there, Josh. I'd wish I could say the same but as practicing catholic, raised by "Padres", my lips can't say that.

The Giants don't deserve I commit such heresy.

Josh S. said...

The Rangers are going to murder these fools.

NicJ said...

its a good thing good hitting beats good pitching.

NicJ said...

lets hope the AL continues to show its dominance.

Mr. Customer said...

I agree. A little "Go fuck yourself, San Diego," is probably in order.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I did not care for that.

MeanieBreanie said...

^correction
If the Phillies could have pulled it off. (I'm so upset I'm still speaking in present tense). Karen can you please pass the Xanax?

Mr. Customer said...

God damn it, why couldn't the NL have lost the ASG like every other year since the dawn of time.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

So Oklahoma lost. I guess USC will be playing the undisputed #1 next week.

#changingsubjects

NicJ said...

EK on the postgame show looks a little pissed.

still a dodger.

Eric Karros said...

It could be worse. At least it's not gonna Yankees vs Giants. Talk about Sophie's choice.

Spanky said...

Fuck You, Mr.C. I forgot about that shit.

Mr. Customer said...

@EK

Couldn't agree more.

MR. F said...

FUCK FUCK FUCK. WHY COULDN'T BROXTON BLOW THE ALL-STAR GAME?

Spanky said...

I'm hitting the booze.
