Weekend Rips: Phillies ship up to Boston, cold beer in high demand
What a whirlwind of a week it’s been, Philadelphia. The Phils got hot, Daniel Green killed all goodwill he had in this city, and I turned in my two week’s notice at my job. Needless to say, it’s been an emotional rollercoaster for me.
My own life aside, everybody in Philly has been beyond riled up this week. Ben Simmons at Wimbledon, WIP being WIP, and intense heat has this city ready to blow, all just in time for the weekend. So now’s the time to let it all out, people. Get outside, shotgun a beer, shoot a seltzer with a bow and arrow, and DM that cutie on the gram. It’s time to let it rip.
Phillies have a weekend series at Fenway
Who on God’s Green Earth let the Phils get hot?! The Phillies hung 39 runs and 13 homers on the hapless Cubs this week. The series was capped off with Bamboo Brad hitting 3 dingers at Wrigley, just as John Kruk said he would(ish). Now, the squad looks to keep that momentum up this weekend as they head to Fenway to face the AL-best Red Sox.
It’s no secret I hate Boston. It’s a vertically challenged city at best. It might as well be Portland, Maine, with a bunch of universities. Plus, the people there think they matter. Hilarious. Hopefully, the Phillies show them they don’t and smack them around the park this weekend. This Phillies lineup with a DH spot is as deadly as they come.
It’s one of those series where you can start drinking earlier each day, with start times of 7:10 – 4:10 – 1:10 this weekend. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
That’s right, folks. Soccer isn’t going anywhere. My Italian brethren will take on England at Wembley Stadium to win the championship trophy this weekend. Both teams have had a stellar tournament, but if you’re picking England to win it all, I’ve got bad news for them. Even though it’s a home game for the Englishmen, the Italians will win this one 2-0. It’ll be a well-earned victory for the Azzuri. Plus, it’ll upset the English, which is my favorite thing to do.
The game is at 3pm on ESPN Sunday. Tune in for an absolute firecracker of a match.
The ALLEGED and FRAUDULENT NBA Finals are on ABC. Sad ! The NBA is failing, you know. Very very bad.
Unlike the English, I adore the Scots. Just look at the absolute shithousery going down across the pond:
That’s why the Scottish Open is prep for a major tournament. Thousands of drunken Scotsmen in one place, anything can happen. Perfect environment to test a golfer’s mettle. I’m not sure there will be any more club-snatching, but I can promise excellent golf at a breathtaking venue all weekend long.
Olympic basketball fails to intrigue me
Idk Jack said the USA is playing Australia this weekend or something. I don’t care, but I need to get to 600 words for SEO purposes. Ben Simmons is frolicking through the Cotswolds with a beautiful woman. Matisse Thybulle is the only name I’d care about, and he’s in the doghouse with me. People treat him like a baby, but he’s just as old as Ben Simmons, which is getting old for me. Those two late fouls killed us in that series, and the wound is still fresh. Nobody cares.
The Liberty Line
The boys are buzzing here at The Liberty Line. We’ve had some articles blow up this past week, and it’s not thanks to any of you losers. We did it by ourselves.
Plus, Vic absolutely ruined someone who ganked our content.
God bless their soul. That does it for this edition of Weekend Rips. Go eat, drink, and enjoy the weekend. Just know, if you venture onto Eagles twitter, there’s a new sheriff in town.
