Hoodwink’d by cj hoodGrowing PainsSHOW ME THAT SMILE AGAIN PHILLIES FANS!The following is a true story. The other day at dinner my 10 year old son (in the most solemn way) tells me that he wants to ‘make a major change in his life.’ He goes on to tell me that starting next season he’s going to start routing for the Yankees. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry because he’s at that age now where he’s starting to come into his own. As a Dad I was ready for the growth spurt, the deeper voice and the hair in naughty places, but ceasing to be a ‘Buntamaniac? Maybe it’s because he was drafted by the Yankees for his first year in Majors or maybe it’s because Utley’s batting under .200. Irregardless (not a real word), the empty stadium, the losing record, the who’s who of players doesn’t really give you an appreciation for how far this team has fallen. It’s not until a ten year old boy (who’s still on the fence about Santa Claus) decides to support another MLB team that you realize how far 2008 is in the rear view mirror. On that note, let’s focus on the few positives…-Dropping Howard in the lineup took the pressure off and it shows.-Revere’s bat is coming around.-Joanna Kerns was a MILF.-Galvis is producing as much as Rollins is in LA.-I can’t believe Chelsea Noble buys into all of Kirk Cameron’s shenanigans.-Harangatuan is still holding his own.-Leo DiCaprio sunk Growing Pains quicker than the Titanic.-I’m finally starting to like Pap….he will be missed.-Buchanan has nice hair.-If you’re adding a kid to sitcom and it’s not Cousin Oliver then don’t even bother.-Herrera was a great pick up.-Asche’s healthy.-RIP Boner-I wouldn’t mind seeing Ryno blow a gasket or two.-I hear Francoeur is very polite.-DB29 has ‘Thicke of the Night’ Season 1 on Beta.-Severino Gonzalez and Chooch seem to be the best of friends.-D*Boogie getting demoted to Lehigh Valley and pulling a no-show was G to the OLD.-Ben ‘the good time guy’ was my favorite GP episode of all time!-Meet & Greet V is next month….let’s get ‘bunted!
