  3. Halladay Returns to Ovation and Trash Thrown on Field (And to Top It Off Rauch Got Ejected)

    Jul 2, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay returned to Toronto to face the Blue Jays on Saturday and received a well-deserved, long standing ovation before making his first pitches of the game. Doc gave his former fans a show, thrown yet another complete game win, as the Phillies took game 2 of the series by a 5-3 count.

    The Phillies’ bats gave Halladay some decent support, particularly later in the game. The kind Canadian crowd began to sour after the Chase Utley bopped a two-run homer to get the Phils a 4-3 lead in the seventh. By the time the game was over, Blue Jays reliever Jon Rauch had been ejected, forcefully and with some amount of disrobing (video below, while it lasts), as had manager John Farrell. Long live umpire Alfonso Marquez. One Jays fan ran onto the field, and quite a few threw trash on it.

  8. Bernard Hopkins Felt the Need To Open His Mouth About Donovan McNabb Again

    May 11, 2011, 1:56 PM EDT

    Bernard Hopkins is one of the greatest boxers of his generation and a Philly guy taboot.
