Of Politics, Sports and Sex

OK, so there won't be a LOT on here about sex, but tell the truth, that's most of the reason you entered this site, right? So, I'll slip some things in from time to time just to keep you coming...back.

And Ammar was there to see the whole thing

Weird stuff from last night's Phillies - Reds 19-inning marathon:


- In one inning, the Phillies walked three, hit one and still did not allow a Cincinnati run to score.

- Wilson Valdez is the first player to start a game in the field and then win the same game as a pitcher since some guy named Babe Ruth did it 90 years ago.

- The two teams combined to throw exactly 600 pitches.

- When Jay Bruce hit a home run in the 10th inning, a Phillies fan who caught it threw it all the way back to the place it had been a half-minute earlier - the pitchers mound.

- Phillies relievers pitched 12 innings and had more strikeouts (10) than walks and hits allowed combined (8).

- The run the Reds pitcher allowed in the 19th was the first run he's allowed this year. (OK, in just 4 games).

- That was the first time in his 19 years of managing that Cholly Manuel has allowed a position player to pitch.

- If the game had gone to the 20th, the Reds manager was going to bring his shortstop in to pitch.
