Weekend Rips: Hockey’s back, Daddy’s home.
Well, my fellow Philadelphians, it’s been a whirlwind of a we- oh, shit, it’s been months, hasn’t it? It has indeed. I had stopped writing Weekend Rips (and articles in general) on vacation in July and don’t really know what happened. Regardless, Vic and Drew have berated me into a return, which is really the only way to get through to me.
Literally, this is one of my Hinge prompts:
My own personal issues aside, it’s the freakin’ weekend, ladies and gentlemen, and I intend to layout everything going on in Philly sports and beyond. Gambling, drinking, watching sports. It’s all more fun with your weekly itinerary courtesy of yours truly here at The Liberty Line. That being said, crack that post-work beer, dump it on your head, and then drink six more in the next 30 minutes. Do it, pussy. It’s time to let it rip.
Flyers open up against the Canucks in South Philly.
Shut up about the Eagles, Sixers, and Phillies. It’s hockey season, dammit. The new-look Flyers are set to beat on the Vancouver Canucks tonight, and I personally cannot wait. We shipped off the dead weight from last year, and the boys over at The Liberty Yell have me juiced for the season. Am I even sure the team is good? Not even remotely. Doesn’t matter; hammer the Flyers money line.
Catch the Fly Guys on ESPN at 7pm tonight. The Farg is set to be electric, so you don’t want to miss it. It’ll be the perfect way to kick off the weekend.
Sixers preseason, the “Bitch from the Bush” is back?
The Sixers are playing the Detroit Pistons in what is quite literally the most meaningless basketball game of all time. Nobody of note will play, and Ben Simmons is here but also not here, sort of like my ex was the latter half of our relationship. But, while I’ve forgiven her, the Ben wound is too fresh. I can’t watch basketball, not yet, at least. I’ll wait for the regular season.
If you hate yourself, tune into Sixers v Pistons at 7pm. Just watch the Flyers instead, man.
NFL Sunday: Value Hunters International
Come gamble and lose your money with me all Sunday long. I’ll be at my sister’s field hockey game @ 1, but the picks will be roooooolling in all day. So if you like betting one dollar to win one thousand, I’m your man.
Live Bet City. Population: Possibly you!
MLB Championship Series
The last four teams standing will battle to see who will have the privilege of playing in the World Series. It’s great when the Phillies aren’t in the playoffs because I can watch the games and wallow in my own self pity, which is my personal pastime.
It’ll be Red Sox vs. Dodgers in the World Series. Bet on it.
That’ll do it for this week. I’m currently sat in Maxi’s on Temple’s campus finishing this up. Time to soak my cerebral cortex in 2 dollar Miller High Lifes until my parents report me missing.
Have a weekend folks.
