Since the Phillies lost on Wednesday night to the Nationals in rather uninspiring fashion, I didn’t really feel moved to write about it yesterday. Yesterday was also an off day, so I had plenty of free time to let my mind wander.
Today’s blog is a culmination of that wandering.
Some of you out there may watch “Desperate Housewives.” As I watched the most recent episode this past Sunday, I was struck by the similarities in hairstyle between the character Orson Hodge (played by Kyle McLachlan) and our own Phillie, Cole Hamels. See for yourself:
They’re even dressed similarly, with sport coat and open collared shirt! Are they both reading the same men’s fashion magazines? Do they share a stylist? Just something to mull over…
Recalling a mention of oddly shaped heads in one of Jane’s recent She-Fan entries, my mind next wandered to the pairing of Placido Polanco and Phil Collins:
I can’t decide which produce item they more closely resemble. Is it:
or the pumpkin?
For what it’s worth, the first two are members of the melon family, while the pumpkin is a gourd.
Also for what it’s worth, the title of today’s entry is also the title of a really bad Styx song from the 1981 album “Paradise Theatre”, which I hesitate to admit I actually owned way back in high school. My taste in music was really bad then.
Tonight, the Phillies take on the Mets at Citizen’s Bank Park. C’mon guys, let’s kick some Met butt! Make me a happy girl!
