The Anvil and Its Shadow

Ray Didinger, a quite prescient commentator on football, specifically the travails of the Philly Iggles, commented this morning on last night's defeat of the beloved Phillies to the monsters from up North on I-95, the Yanquis. The Phils, as has been their practice this year clawed back from a 4-2 hole to tie it 4-4 in the bottom of the 8th inning.
In came Philly closer Brad Lidge, the 2008 hero, now the 2009 cursed goat, to close down the Yanquis in the top of the 9th and hopefully give the Phils a chance for another come-from-behind victory. He got 2 outs and then the wheels fell off of the wagon. The Yanquis came up with three runs, Mariano came out of his lair in the bottom of the 9th and put the nails in the coffin of game 4 of the World Series. Yanquis: 7, Phils: 4. Yanquis up, 3 games to 1.

Mr. Didinger's comment? Well, this whole year "...Phillies fans knew there was an anvil somewhere up there in the sky. Last night, the anvil (that is Mr. Lidge)'s shadow covered the field and came down with a thud."
So True.

My heart goes out to Brad Lidge; it just hasn't been his year and, unfortunately, as the Anvil, it doesn't seem like it will one for the Phils.

Now, All I that someone on the Phils remove that smirk from that self-aggrandizing Alex Rodriguez. I heave bile whenever that lying steroid taker is up at bat!
