Comcast does something right


CN8 has the Phillies game on our local cable feed. This is the one game of the year that is on a broadcast station in Philadelphia and I usually have to find a local watering hole with a satellite package to watch it. But today it's on channel 10. Thank you Comcast.
.
J-Roll led off the game with a double and scored on a sac fly hit by Pat Burrell. It's now 2-0. The Nats have a player named Lastings Milledge who was on the Mets last year. Gotta love the name, it's right up there with Mrs. G's favorite Vladimir Guerrero and NASCAR legend Dick Trickle, who should be driving the Viagra car.
.
Milledge hit a 2 run homer to make it a 6-2 Nats lead.
.
Chase Utley just hit one out and the score is 6-3. MVP! MVP!
.
The catcher just drove in a run to make it 6-4 and the Nats brought in Ray King to pitch. He's been around forever.
.
J-Roll smacked one out to tie it in the 7th inning.
.
JC Romero put them down in order in the 8th.
.
Just to give me a heart attack the Phils brought in Tom Gordon to pitch in the 9th. Lastings Milledge beat out an infield single and started all sorts of chaos. Gordon gave up 4 runs in the 9th. He used to be good.

And the Cheapskate Phillies start off like they did last year, with low-budget Tom Gordon blowing a save!
