Old people. Two incidents in the last week have evidenced just how great old people are: referee Joey Crawford’s bizarre blow up at Tim Duncan and then Phillies manager Charlie Manuel unleashing his own mix of backwoods whoop ass on radio “personality” Howard Eskin. Crawford has most likely refereed his last game, given an indefinite suspension seems like a forced retirement on the part of NBA Commissioner David Stern. Consider this Crawford’s Howard Beale moment. It would have to be; how many other 50something old men would challenge a 7 foot professional athlete to a fight? Even if it is Tim free runs Duncan.
Cholly, on the other hand, well, this was a little more troubling. In what’s turning out to be one of the most fraudulent seasons in Philadelphia Phillies history, it’s at least encouraging that Goodtime Charlie still has something left in him. Most of the time, he’s perched at the top of the dugout with this Oops! I crapped my pants expression, never showing any kind of emotion whatsoever, but now, we’re witness to the fiery muskrat that has laid dormant for far too long. Eskin was an easy target for his wra free runs th, given his penchant for picking on people he doesn’t play golf with. (And, Charlie, please don’t accept any flower bouquets should Eskin try to free runs apologize.)
You really can’t blame Manuel for his actions (too much). The 2007 Phillies are just repulsive; besides their awful everything, it’s more repugnant everybody in the Delaware Valley got duped by a silly PR slogan and Ryan Howard’s MVP glar free runs e. Goosebumps? More like Nut Punch. This is team is just another reshined turd.
