Pretty Machete Attitude. Anthony Genovese of Havertown, PA is just as excited about this midweek series as anyone.
PHILADELPHIA (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) It’s June. The season is approaching the midway point. Playing a divisional rival can only mean one thing – boundless energy; Perhaps more than the Washington Nationals and a few visiting fans making the trek up I-95 to the City of Brotherly Love are accustomed to. The Nats and their relatively laid back, casual fans, have been warned told to prepare for the classic Philadelphia sports fan – the crazed, passionate fanatics who in the past have been able to rattle pitchers off the mound with booing and yelling.
Apparently the Phillies and their fans have something extra special in store for the team from nation’s capital.
For the fourth time this season, the team will give each paying fan a fourteen inch razor sharp machete to swing and wave throughout the game. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s an oldie but a goodie.” Read the rest of this entry »

Duncan Donuts? Maybe for dessert.
MIAMI (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) After the Miami Heat’s Sunday night 103-84 thrashing of the San Antonio Spurs, superstar LeBron James joined his teammates for the traditional post game dinner, and a small victory celebration before departing for Texas. Nothing unusual there. What did catch James by surprise was discovering a despondent Tim Duncan sulking at the bottom of his generous portion of grilled fish and macaroni and cheese.
“Hey.” a crestfallen Duncan moaned. “I’m here because I’d like to personally thank you and the fellas for a lesson in reality.”
Eyewitnesses said James did his best to cheer up his opponent. Read the rest of this entry »

Now, the rapidly aging Newton-Ayers is up in arms about being unable to find his team in the baseball standings.

Organ-ically Hip. The Phantom’s gonna rock Marlins Park.
MIAMI (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) After an exhaustive search, Miami Marlins ownership opened up their wallet and inked perhaps the most famous organist in history, Erik, better known as the Phantom of the Opera.
The Phantom is expected to join the team for their home stand beginning June 25th, against the Minnesota Twins.

When the caller said “I wanna divorce” Young knew immediately it actually was his wife. She then followed the dramatic declaration quickly with the old caller standby, “I’ll hang up and listen.” She hung up and listened.
A stunned Young fumbled a bit before announcing to his audience that his wife had obviously discovered his betting slips which he thought he’d carefully concealed in some ceiling tiles. Read the rest of this entry »

Snot Kidding! Lupus is a Marlin.
MIAMI (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Needing help in nearly every department, the Miami Marlins have traded for the Bad News Bears’ Timmy Lupus. The fictional, light-hitting, poor-fielding outfielder is expected to give the last place Marlins a boost in attendance, which is at the bottom of Major League Baseball.
“We’re fully aware of Timmy’s colossal limitations.” said team General Manager, Michael Hill. “But we’re banking on his overall cuteness, and sweet yet pathetic underdog qualities to put fannies in the seats and motivate his teammates. Let’s not forget, Timmy’s been to the post-season, made an historic catch, and is brimming with mucus, should one of our pitchers want to put a little something extra on the baseball, if you catch my thinly-veiled drift.”
Marlins’ Single A affiliate, the Greensboro Grasshoppers, shipped 22 year old outfielder, Cody Keefer to the Bears in exchange for Lupus and cash considerations. Read the rest of this entry »
