Congratulations, Ryan Howard

Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard clobbered the 200th home run of his career tonight in Florida. It was his 23rd of the season and gave the Phillies a 4-0 lead. Howard is the fastest player in MLB history to reach 200 home runs, which he did in 658 games.


I Love You, Bob Smizik

Best. Article (blog post?). Ever. recruits are flocking to Penn State, which after a brief absence, has returned to its long-held place as a nationally elite football program.

. . .

If Penn State fans love this comeback because their program is back on top, they love it just as much because, in its resurgence, Penn State is trampling Pitt. There’s no doubt -- none -- as to which program is the dominant one in these parts. When Dave Wannstedt took over at Pitt in 2005, he looked ready to topple the struggling Penn State program. Instead, Wannstedt has struggled trying to live up to the record of Walt Harris and Paterno has come back.
We are Penn State. September 5th can't get here soon enough.

Heading to CBP for Tonights Game

I'll be taking in the Phillies-Pirates game tonight at The Bank. It will be my first live Phillies game since a 10,000th-loss-avoiding win on July 14, 2007, also one of my best friends bachelor party. On a related note, tonight is Walkoff Walk's CBP HEIST. Bloggers from The 700 Level and The Fightins will be in attendance (plus others). They're congregating in section 202. Not sure where I'll be gbut it'd be sweet to see some of them there. Here's to a Phillies win!
