Recently the NL East has usually been a (no) contest between the Braves & Phillies, making these series key matchups (With the Nats and Marlins seriously improving, the Braves not improving and the Phillies getting older, the dynamic has changed for the foreseeable future).
That doesn’t mean Braves-Phillies has stopped being exciting! On the Contrary:
Today was a good day. He was feeling very good. Exciting baseball! Walkf-off homers, A no-hitter. The Braves defeated the Phillies. That means he gets to troll them today in full. Craig walked over to his high chair bottle of bourbon in hand.
“Craig, you’re not drinking this early in the morning are you,” said Tiffany as her head appeared on the 70″ LED screen.
“Of course not my dear, this is for Chipper!”, he anwsered, pointing to a small Chipper Jones bobble-head on his side table with a small shot glass in front.
“Where have I seen this before?” Tiffany wondered aloud as Craig poured Chipper a shot of his finest.
“Perk up my dear, your team the Angels, won and Mr. Weaver tossed a no-hitter.”
“That’s true,” she said. “And your team managed to overcome Halladay after a serious deficit. Though with the score you’d swear it was the Eagles and Falcons playing.”
Craig straightened and paused, with a frown on his face. “Those two teams again. I’ve heard them before but what league exactly do they play in?”
Tiffany was about to answer, thought better of it, and said: “I’ll catch you later for HBT Extra Craig.”
Craig shrugged and started to goo-goo and ga-ga over his Chipper Jones bobble-head. “Who’s a great sure-fire-first-ballot hall of famer? You Are!!!”.
This was posted yesterday morning, apparently after playing great and exciting baseball, they opted to mail it in the next day.
