With Sarah Palin Exposed, Is Joe Biden Poised to Attack?

Posted in Blogroll on October 2nd, 2008 by Michael Tillery

As the Vice Presidential Debate draws near, do you think Sarah Palin will hold her own or be verbally chin checked by Joe Biden? Conservatives are coming after moderator Gwen Ifill even though her book The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama was announced back in July. The book has everything to do with the rise of Black politics and nothing to do with Obama in the context of some sort of personal relationship (support in this case). It’s my opinion they will go after Ifill publicly if Sarah Palin predictably bombs tonight.

Ron Glover’s NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

Posted in Blogroll on October 2nd, 2008 by Ron Glover

TSF Family you know I hate to do this,  but I wouldn’t be worth my salt as a writer or a fan of the game if I didn’t acknowledge Brett Favre as Player of The Week. He needed every one of his six touchdown passes in the Jets 56-35 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Things are starting to round into shape as refelcted in this week’s rankings. Slept on teams like Tennessee and Tampa Bay (Eric Daniels, I watched the game) looked impressive last week, Buffalo and Washington continue to surprise.

Sixers Media Day: How Far Will The Philadelphia 76’ers Go (Story added below)?

Visions of 76er plumbs and expectations abound in the City of Brotherly Love. From the second the Sixers lost to the veteran Pistons in last year’s playoffs, the town has been chomping at the bit because of a very exciting second half finish. Fans see the Sixers as team 3a (Flyers) behind the Eagles and the Phillies, so any upward movement is a definite plus.

Phillies Get First Post Season Win In Fifteen Years

Posted in Blogroll on October 2nd, 2008 by Michael Tillery

 Philadelphia Philies 3, Milwaukee Brewers 1. Phillies lead series 1-0. The last time the Philadelphia Phillies won a playoff game was the day after my son Gaston was born. The 1993 World Series was dramatic for a lot of reasons: Cito Gaston (name coincidence), the Phillies being wild as hell on all fronts, the amazing run producing Rickey Henderson, Dave Stewart’s stare, the city getting behind Kevin Stocker and of course Joe Carter’s Game 6 World Series winning blast of Mitch “The Wild Thing” Williams (he still catches mad wreck). I remember getting screamed on by Gaston’s Mom because I focused on the television instead of everything else.
