Sounds kinky, right?

I wasn’t really paying attention to this Jamie Moyer interview conducted by NBC10′s John Clark at an area B&C Collectibles store, but it includes something about the Moyers’ bedroom, a couple champagne bottles, some shelves, his locker nameplate, and a Ziploc bag full of dirt.

I’m actually quite surprised he would be this open about his bedroom exploits during a local news segment. Feel free to draw your own conclusions, after a brief word from Camelback Mountain — where there’s Something for Everyone™!

Just because Kyle Kendrick was left off the 2008 playoff roster doesn’t mean his ladyfriend should stop rooting for her man. Below is a picture from the first half of Game 5 of the World Series where Kendrick’s girl, Survivor-alum Stephenie LaGrossa (middle), is photographed with 2005 AVN winner for best Gonzo Film, Gina Lynn, and GN Kang, co-host of Wired 96.5′s morning show:

Not for nothing, Kyle — I like the way your girl rolls and all — but if she’s gonna get Louis Vuitton’d up, you gotta at least get her the authentic jersey:

After the jump, a brief YouTube clip of the girls in action. (Unfortunately, not like that)

Go get ‘em, Fightins. I’m ready to fucking celebrate.

WHO’S WITH ME?

UPDATE: Dummy me put this up right before I left work and I forgot to throw up the link.  And in retrospect, that “WHO’S WITH ME?” thing looked pretty ghey.  Sorry about that, of course everybody is with me.

There seems to be a horde of Philadelphians who have been extremely angry the past day and a half.

Well, let me rephrase — more angry than usual.

I guess it’s understandable, but if you ask me, we’re still in a pretty damn good position. Just think — being that the game will start from the bottom of the sixth inning tonight, it means we don’t have to celebrate on a weekday at one o’clock in the morning. We can start earlier! Get drunkerer! Flip more cars! And it won’t be in the middle of a monsoon!

Yes, Bud Selig is an incompetent moron. But I ain’t gonna let that curmudgeon kill my high. So wipe that fucking scowl off your face and get ready for some Game 5½ action.

I know one person who is DEFINITELY ready. The man who is the subject of the most incredible interview segment in the history of local news. South Philly’s own — the one, the only, MONTY GEE!

I dare you to disagree:

You hear that? We’re winning the World Series. Not only are we winning, but we’re also taking it “to the top, to the top, to the top.” Seriously, if you can’t trust a guy with an old school gold-on-onyx name plate, who can you trust?

Tom Zobrist: ComplainerPart-time Rays utility man Ben Zobrist brought his family along with him to Philadelphia to enjoy the tourist attractions and witness their proud son play in his first World Series. After experiencing some unruly fans on Saturday night, Ben’s father, Tom Zobrist, couldn’t wait to tell people of his horrible experience. He recounts the atrocity with Phil Anastasia of the Inquirer and accuses the Citizens Bank faithful of harassing a baby!

Here are some highlights:

“These people harassed a baby,” [Ed. Note - told you!] Zobrist, the father of Tampa Bay outfielder Ben Zobrist, said before the start of Game 5 last night. “It’s not all of them. But there are a small group that are obnoxious, vulgar and rude.

“We’ve got kids with us, including a baby, and they should not be exposed to that. I worry about their safety.”

Ummmm, here’s a thought, Tom — how about leaving the baby at home?

“She looks real threatening, doesn’t she?” Zobrist said as his daughter lifted the baby into her arms.

Alright. We get it. Put the friggin kid down already, you’re making a fool of yourself.

I’m sure people were just screaming in the general direction of the baby, Tom. These seem like outrageous claims.

“They’re yelling at a baby,” Zobrist said. “It’s not all of them. We met some nice people.”

Well there you go, look at the positives. Some people were nice, talk about them.

“But there are some groups, they are relentless. They use foul language. They are threatening. They scream and yell obscenities at us, and all because we’re wearing Tampa stuff. It’s ridiculous.”

Okay, so don’t wear Tampa stuff. Problem solved. Oh yeah, and leave the kid at home.

Tom Zobrist said some family members of Tampa Bay players declined to attend Game 5 last night, preferring to remain at their hotels and watch the game on television, or leave town.

hahahahhaha, they got kicked out of their hotels, Tom. Anything else?

“We’ve been to the South Side of Chicago. It was nothing like this. We’ve been to Boston. We’ve been to Yankee Stadium. This place is way ahead of Yankee Stadium.”

So…. we win! You just made our day, Tom. Thanks.
