With our sporting focus now primarily on the Phils, it was good to see them win one last night to halt the skid mark before it stained. Outside of the Phillies, there are plenty of great stories to aid in your Wednesday blowing off of responsibilities. As if you needed the help. 

  • There’s no need to mourn them though, for the Flyers have gone onto a very nice purgatory (Heaven still awaits). It’s called the Borgata.
    Also, after taking in a few period of the Flyers win on Thursday of
    last week, Owen Wilson (in town to shoot Marley and Me) hit up Rick’s
    Caberet in South Philly. Not a bad night for Kingsley Zissou. [Dan

  • Is this the untimely end of RedLasso? [Silicon Alley Insider, via Mr. Irrelevant]
  • The Man U-Chelsea Champions League final is today at 2. You probably won’t get to see it, but here’s a great primer. [The Beautiful Game]
  • Also from Mr. Wyshynski, we have a discussion on the possibility of mandatory visors in the NHL,
    and a nasty picture of the reason why. I used to wear the Jofa
    birdcage, like Tommy Soderstrom, only I wasn’t a goalie. After getting
    Coburned, I’d probably be wearing a welder’s mask. [Puck Daddy]
  • I finally got the new Roots album yesterday. Recommended.
