Peace out Tuesday

Welcome to World Series eve..and boy is shit heating up.

First, if you haven't already seen it, check out the cover of today's New York Post. Yes, that would be Shane Victorino in a skirt. You know, Shane Victorino, the guy who hit a grand slam off C.C. Sabathia, the Yankees Game 1 pitcher, in last year's NLDS. Good idea NYP.

Searching for Temple University also turned up this Philadelphia Inquirer article about why the Yankees are so easy to hate, especially by the scrappy, blue-collar Phillies fans. The article includes insights by Temple prof Emily Sparvero, who essentially says that New York is so easy to hate because of its size and geographic location.

Bernard Hopkins
like the Phillies too. Like the t-shirt here? Want some funnier than normal Phillies gear? This site kicks ass.

In other news, this week's Temple News is out on the stands, and it's a good one. Our pick of the week is this article by Valerie Rubinsky that provides a wealth of information and quotes on the ongoing Temple Univeristy Hospital debate/strike/animosities. Is Temple a sketchy, bottom-line driven corporation, or are the Union people making a misinformation cocktail with a splash of sour grapes?

Or perhaps Temple likes money so they can open state-of-the-mo-fuggin-art facilities like this new $3 million Biotechnology research center. Well, when you put it that way...

Also in the TN were these Halloween listings, which we will be very, very tempted to steal for our Halloween weekend listings.

Th-th-th that's all folks. Cliff Lee, you better be in bed by now.
