What is your viewing pleasure tonight?
Most Philadelphians are going Flyers, in the first round of the playoffs against Pittsburgh, Phillies with Roy Halladay on the hill and the Sixers trying to hold onto their slim playoff hopes.
In that order.
For me, it would be a no-brainer with the Flyers opening up against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins, but Doc Halladay is on the hill and he has the only win of this puzzling early start of the Phillies season.
Claude Giroux is the star on the Flyers, but when you think of the Penguins, a healthy Sidney Crosby is paramount for the Penguins.
The Phillies are bunting more and playing small ball more, stealing bases, but it doesn’t seem like enough. The Phillies have been outscored 15-8 and have a 1-4 record on the season.
Halladay pitched a 1-0 shutout of the Pirates, a game that I attended in Pittsburgh.
“Oh, he is not even cracking 90,” said a drunk Pirates fan.
Yeah, but the man knows how to pitch. It will be a tough match-up against Josh Jo...
