HBT Weekend Wrapup

I was going to complain about the fact that a spring on my garage door broke over the weekend, but compared to this list of injury, death and despair, that’s not too big a deal.

Dear God, people, let’s be careful out there.

    Craig, please remove the line about injuries to the rotation being a problem for the Phillies before this turns into another comment section of how great the Phillies are and how much you hate them. It’s too early to see the orgy of Phillie self-pity.

      It took you 5 minutes to post about the Phills and their fans. Unacceptable, you need to sharpen your skills.

        It took you 5 minutes to post about taking umbrage over someone posting about the Phills and their fans . Unacceptable, you need to sharpen your skills.

        It took you 104 minutes to post that snappy zinger of a comeback. Unacceptable. You need to sharpen your skills.

        Simple math escapes you. Unacceptable, you need to sharpen your skills.

      • Utley's Hair - Apr 18, 2011 at 1:09 PM

        Are you saying my math is off, Jonny? 9:22 to 10=38 minutes. 10 to 11:06=66 minutes. 38+66=104 minutes. And here, I thought the NJ schools were supposed to be somewhat good—if only as determined by themselves. Unacceptable. You need to get batteries for your abacus. Or something.

        No UT, your paranoia is kicking in. I was addressing Jimbo. C’mon man!! You should be resting your brain for the playoff Flyers, playoff sixers, plus the Phills tonight. GET WID IT!!!!

      • Utley's Hair - Apr 18, 2011 at 4:35 PM

        My paranoia, Jonny?!? What do you mean by that?!?

      • Jonny 5 - Apr 19, 2011 at 11:20 AM

        LMAO!!!!

    • Utley's Hair - Apr 18, 2011 at 11:28 AM

      And yet, here you are the one trying to turn this into a Phightins comment section. Or, better yet, trying to bait Phils Phans into following your lead. Nice.

    I’m thrilled that Braden’s injury warranted a separate post, meaning Braden is now more important than Zito in our little world. Unless of course a Zito post (How awful is Zito?) is forthcoming. Because we all suspect that Zito isn’t that hurt, he’s being shelved for the Giants’ protection.

      Already done, APBA:
