Wish I'd Thought of This One

As I sit here, the Phils trail 4-0 late against the odious Braves lefty Mike Hampton. I guess the thrilling walk-off wins of the last two nights were likely to precipitate a hangover, though I think it's pretty important to take this series and leave Atlanta further back heading into the all-star break than they were when they got to Philly for this series.

To ease the pain, I recommend checking out The Love Song of Larry Bowa. This is the best "imitation writing" I've seen since Robert Coover wrote as Richard Nixon some 30 years ago in The Public Burning... and it's even funnier than what Coover did.
